Please join us and learn about the plant, that, with advanced botanical technology, has created medicine for patients who are searching for an alternative or who have lost faith in traditional pharmacology.
Lets start at the very beginning and talk about the cannabis plant and it's significance in history. If it works so well, why is there still a stigma?
Then let's look at exactly what it does in the body. As recent as the 1980s, scientists discovered that the body has a receptor system that creates homeostasis with cannabinoids. As we speak, the federal government is funding future cannabis research, so there is so much more to learn.
Next, we will examine Missouri Medical Marijuana Law. How and why would I get my license? Can I grow my own? Can I own a firearm? The law requires a state-issued license to enter a cannabis dispensary. What will I find there? Where are they located? What do they sell?
