Cannabis Neurobiology: More Complex than Black-Hole Astrophysics

Dvaid Presti

The pharmacologic properties of cannabis are varied: sophisticated changer of consciousness, medicine with claims of healing for numerous syndromes, and substance of abuse. The story of how the neurochemical and neurophysiological properties of cannabis are being revealed is a tale of inspiration and dedication. In particular, the discovery of cannabinoid receptors and endocannabinoids is yet another vivid illustration of the extraordinary complexity of living systems, in this case our own body. Join neurobiologist Dr. David Presti for a look into the complicated interactions between cannabis and the human brain. This talk will be followed by a moderated discussion and Q&A led by Eric Siegel.
