Preclinical and clinical studies suggest that cannabidiol (CBD) has broad therapeutic value. With emerging knowledge and a lack of education about the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) in most medical schools, the vast majority of health professionals have limited understanding of the utility of cannabinoids.
Dr. Stefan Kuprowsky will share his insights based on available research, as well as from his professional experience as a naturopathic clinician, on using cannabinoids in practice.
As a follow-up to his previous webinar presentation, Understanding the Endocannabinoid System (available on demand), his upcoming webinar will address The Most Common Therapeutic Applications of CBD.
Dr. Kuprowsky will review:
• How the ECS has shown to play a role in the way the body responds to stress, fear, depression and insomnia
• How fibromyalgia, arthritis and migraines have been linked with lower levels of endocannabinoids and other changes in ECS activity
• Evidence on effects of CBD related to addictive behaviors
• Dosing, Drug Interactions and CBD Delivery Methods
• Case Studies
Dr. Kuprowsky will also conduct a Q&A Session with attendees.
Dr. Kuprowsky has 40 years of academic and clinical experience in integrated psychopharmacology and cannabinoid medicine. He ran a successful clinic in Vancouver, BC and a naturopathic retreat center on Vancouver Island focusing on complex chronic diseases and addictions.
For the past 10 years, he has been the Clinical Director for a drug addiction treatment program and a consulting practitioner for a Cannabis Dispensary. He is a full professor at the Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine.
