While most studies point out the prevalence of cannabis abuse among post-traumatic stress disorder patients, a minority of emerging research is looking at the question in reverse: could cannabis be effectively treating PTSD? On Nov. 16, 2016, Marijuana Investor Summit is bringing Dr. Sue Sisley to the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada, to discuss her study on the use of medical cannabis in treating PTSD.

On Dec. 17, 2014, Sisley was awarded more than $2 million from the Colorado Board of Health to conduct a placebo-controlled, triple-blind study of 76 veterans with PTSD to determine the effects of medical cannabis as a treatment option.

This is an incredibly exciting advancement for American research of cannabis — register now so you can learn about future opportunities for improved clinical data and investing with consideration for public health and safety.
