United Patients Group, the leading medical cannabis information and education website, will host its second annual medical cannabis conference, “Medical Cannabis:  The Science.  The Truth.,” May 21st – 22nd at Dominican University in San Rafael, CA. Registration is open and tickets to the event can be purchased here.

With the medical cannabis industry rapidly evolving, newly minted “experts” abound.  The conference, striving to provide a “university like experience”, will be void of exhibitor booths, “weed challenges” and other gimmicks that seem to plague the burgeoning industry, and instead provide attendees the opportunity to listen and learn from the best minds in the medical cannabis industry.

Founder, John Malanca said “As our industry matures, we strive to stay true to our mission of providing credible, unbiased information in an area of health and medicine that is still fraught with obstacles and half-truths.  The singular goal of our conference is to further the potential for medical cannabis by providing healthcare providers, mental health professionals, nurses and the general public with information that is void of the hype.”

Unique to the explosion of cannabis conferences and workshops that seem to pop up daily, UPG’s conference is carefully curated and highly focused, and many of the weekend conference speaker sessions are approved for continuing medical education (CME) credits for healthcare professionals.
