If you’re looking for an educational 420 event in Southern California this year, the University of California, Los Angeles, has a light to shine on the latest cannabis science.
On April 20, 2017, UCLA is hosting the inaugural UCLA Cannabis Research Symposium, which will address the science of cannabis and cannabinoids, as well as the endocannabinoid system.
From 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Neuroscience Research Building Auditorium in Los Angeles, visiting speakers and UCLA faculty will discuss cannabis as it relates to specific areas of science and the latest medical research, such as pain management and pediatric epilepsy, among others.
The symposium is free to attend, but attendees must register in advance. The UCLA Brain Research Institute, the Semel Institute and the UCLA Cannabinoid Affinity Group are sponsoring the event.
The UCLA Cannabinoid Affinity Group is focused on fostering multidisciplinary cannabis research, with the hopes of creating a cannabis-specific research center at the university.
