April 2019 Kokua Mau meeting Cannabis and Pain Management

Please join us for our monthly meeting, to learn, laugh, mingle and network.

April’s topic:

What is the latest on Medical Cannabis and how can it be used for those with pain and serious illness?

  • What should we believe about the latest CBD craze?
  • How does CBD/THC affect inflammation and pain.
  • How can cannabis be used in place of opiates and benzodiazepines?
