Dr. Dustin Sulak, regarded as one of the world’s leading practicing experts on medical cannabis, will be presenting a free public seminar on how medical cannabis can provide a major solution to the opioid addiction epidemic. As part of the presentation, Dr. Sulak will talk about how cannabis has helped many of his own patients with opioid addiction and the latest findings from scientific studies worldwide on this subject.
“We are in the throes of an opioid abuse crisis and are desperately searching for an answer. It’s time we acknowledge the solution that’s right in front of us and make this life-saving treatment available for those dependent on opioids. Cannabis has been proven to relieve chronic pain while reducing and replacing the use of opioids. It also relieves the symptoms of opioid withdrawal and decreases opioid craving. There is no toxic or lethal overdose of cannabis, and thousands of patients in Maine are already effectively using cannabis to replace opioids and other addictive substances.” – Dr. Dustin Sulak
He will discuss how medical cannabis, like any other legalized medicine, requires proper dosing procedures along with patient and provider education. Dr. Sulak will introduce www.Healer.com, a free comprehensive medical cannabis education resource for patients, the public and medical professionals.
