Health care needs to eschew a high-tech approach and go beyond the treatment of symptoms to attack the causes of chronic diseases rooted in current lifesyles. That’s the message Paulius Jaruševičius, Founder and Chairman of the Lithuania-based Lifestyle Medicine Association will bring to “The Future of Medical Hemp,” an international industry summit and networking event focused on CBD that is set Aug. 24-25 at HempToday Center in Poland.
Only 1 accreditation remains for the Aug. 24-25 networking & intelligence gathering which is limited to 25 participants.. The application period remains open through Aug. 17.
How phytocannabinoids work
Jaruševičius’ presentation, “How phytocannabinoids work together with lifestyle change” will explore how lifestyles induce changes in gene expression, which is closely related to the human endocannabinoid system.
