Event Overview
Welcome message:

Dear Colleagues, Friends, Partners and Supporters,


The second International Conference on Medical Cannabis and Cannabinoids will be held in Prague, Czech Republic, on November 22-24, 2017. The main aim of the conference is to bring the latest information and best practices on the introduction of medical cannabis into modern evidence-based medicine and to help to establish the use of medical cannabis as a standard medical procedure worldwide. 


One of the important goals of the 2017 International Medical Cannabis and Cannabinoids Conference is to review the effectiveness of different national and state-based legal approaches allowing medical cannabis and related products in the broader context of a global regulatory regime on psychotropic pharmaceuticals that has created legal, logistical, and economic barriers to their availability to people in indisputable need of them. 


The conference aims to bring together cutting-edge researchers and scientists in the field of medical cannabis and cannabinoids, in regulatory and political science, in health economics, and in translational science. We want to raise overall media and political awareness about the current benefits and the clearly huge potential of the medical use of cannabis and cannabinoids, and, similarly to our 2015 conference, we will provide a broad and comfortable platform for the strengthening and better coordination of the global movement of patients who can benefit from the use of medical cannabis. 


We are aware of the growing business opportunities in the area of medical cannabis and we acknowledge the importance of responsible entrepreneurship in this quickly developing and extremely promising field. Thus, we provide networking venues and arranged meetings for representatives of industry and other key players in the field. 


Finally, we will provide discussion forum and workshops for policy makers, scientists, medical professionals and their patients, and other involved groups where the novel and/or controversial issues in the field should be raised and debated. A rich social programme will be complemented by several educational side events prepared in cooperation with academic institutions.


The event is organised jointly by the research and education institute ResAd and the global conference organiser KENES. It is supported by the International Society for Studies of Drug Policy, European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction, the Global Commission on Drug Policy, Czech Medical Academy, Czech Medical Society for Cannabis and Cannabinoids Treatment and Its Research, and others.


Our conference is another step towards lege artis use and safe access to medical cannabis in modern society. 


We are looking forward to meeting you in Prague!
