Join me at the largest free speech event on the planet, Seattle Hempfest 2013.  Because of it’s low toxicity and broad effectiveness, cannabis has a huge role to play in 21st century medicine.  I am excited to announce that I will be speaking on the medical panel for the third time about the benefits of topical, raw and low-psychoactive applications of cannabis for chronic pain.  Come to Hempfest and educate yourself about the myriad of benefits offered by the Cannabis plant including medicinal, scientific, industrial, agricultural, economic, environmental, and other benefits and applications.  There will be lot’s of live music and other festivities too.  It’s fun and it’s FREE!

Seattle Hempfest crowdI’ll be speaking at the Peter McWilliams stage on Friday, August 16 at 5:40 PM; on the Medical Panel on Saturday, August 17th at the Hemposium stage at 11:50 AM; and on Sunday, August 18th at the Seeley stage at 12:50 PM.  Here is a list of the full speaker schedule and Hempfest map.

Topical cannabis reduces pain in just 20 minutes after application, broadens range of motion, and does not give patients a head high.   Additionally, cannabis helps patients use less harmful medications such as opiates, and in terms of toxicity, it is by far the safest of all the pain medications.
