Pain Management Experts to Discuss Cannabinoids and Medical Marijuana During Full Day Track at PAINWeek 2019

Medical marijuana is legal in 33 states. Recreational marijuana, with the recent addition of Illinois, is legal is 12 states. Whether PRO or CON, clinicians need to know the facts. During the Cannabis and Medical Marijuana full-day track at PAINWeek 2019, the latest advances and discoveries--and heated opinions--about all aspects of marijuana will inform learners.

“As cannabis has taken center stage in world politics and economics, it’s time to take a serious look at its utility in medicine, specifically in pain management,” commented Theresa Mallick-Searle, MS, NP-BC, ANP-BC. She will be presenting The World According to Cannabinoids: Clinical and Research Updates, along with Ethan B. Russo, MD. “It is also important,” Mallick continued, “to have a serious discussion on safety and forgo the hype and rhetoric. I am excited and honored to be presenting with Dr. Russo on this fascinating and evolving subject." Dr. Russo stated that, "Cannabis-based medicines and cannabidiol are currently hot topics in pain management. I welcome the opportunity to explore and share our knowledge of the endocannabinoid system, how deficiencies in it may contribute to the pathophysiology of numerous common chronic pain syndromes, and what pharmacological interventions may result from current research."

"Is cannabis a friend or foe? Hope or hype? Panacea or a gateway drug?” asks Nuria Thusius, MD. “If it’s legal on a state level and illegal on a federal level, is there a sane solution for patients and providers?” Dr. Thusius will present Medical Marijuana: Psychiatric and Medical Conditions With Specific Attention to Chronic Pain. “I look forward to updating learners on rapidly evolving endocannabinoid science as well as its promise for pharmaceutical development, and explain how—even if cannabis is rescheduled—the FDA paradigm for approving medications hinders its endorsement.”

Other presentations during the Cannabinoid and Medical Marijuana track include Reefer Madness Revisited: Taking the Insanity Out of Medical Cannabinoids, presented by Michael E. Schatman, PhD, CPE, DASPE; Lost in the Weeds: The Past, Present, and Future of Hemp in Pain Management, presented by Stephen J. Ziegler, PhD, JD; The Global Legalization of Marijuana: A Reasonable Solution to Treat Pain…or a Pipe Dream, also presented by Dr. Ziegler; Cannabis and Opioids Together: Syn or Synergistic?, presented by Christopher M. Herndon, PharmD, BCPS, CPE, and Bradlee Rea, PharmD.
