Announcing The Third Annual Portugal Medical Cannabis Conference by Sponsored

Can cannabis help children with autism, cancer, epilepsy or even psychosis? Doctors and researchers say yes and they will explain how next week, at Portugal Medical Cannabis Conference in Lisbon, Portugal.

The growing trend towards the legalization of cannabis worldwide leaves no room for doubt: cannabis does, indeed, have the potential to treat various pathologies and more and more countries are opting for its regulation.

However, the lack of information and training, particularly among health professionals, still prevents a broad use of this therapy, which can make all the difference in the quality of life of thousands of people.

This year, the 3rd International Conference on Medicinal Cannabis, PTMC, that takes place in Lisbon, on June 16th and 17th, will address the myths and facts associated with cannabis and psychosis, the therapeutic potential of cannabinoids in Pediatrics, especially in childhood diseases such as autism, cancer, or epilepsy.

Bonni Goldstein, Pediatrician in Los Angeles, Dani Gordon, Physician in London or Carl Hart, Professor of Psychology in Psychiatry at Columbia University, in New York, are just some of the more than 20 speakers who will talk about their experiences and show successful cases of treatment with cannabinoids.

Aiming to promote the access for health professionals and students to this information, PTMC will grant a 75% discount to health professionals or students who send a valid professional card to info@ptmc.pt.

Portugal has established itself in recent years as the center of excellence for medical cannabis in Europe, with 18 companies already licensed and more than 80 with a pre-license granted by Infarmed, being one of the largest cannabis producers in the world and having exported more than 30 tonnes of cannabis flowers in 2021, an increase of 566% over the previous year.

The two day’s event will finish with a business networking sunset party aboard a catamaran on the Tagus River, with a saxophone-DJ duo and an open bar with hemp-infused drinks and dinner.

Portugal Medical Cannabis, organized by CannaReporter, a non-profit organization dedicated to disseminating more and better information about cannabis, has brought to Portugal, since 2018, the most renowned doctors, scientists and researchers, who discussed and demonstrated the latest advances in science regarding medical cannabis.

The International Opium Convention of 1925 institutionalised the international control system and extended the scope of control to cannabis. In 1961 a new international convention was adopted to […]
