Webinar focused on implications for cannabis research and regulatory science

The Council for Federal Cannabis Regulation (CFCR) announced the fifth installment of their monthly web series. February’s virtual conversation, entitled The Endocannabinoid System: Implications for Research and Regulatory Scienceis designed to educate the public, policy makers, and industry about the research and regulatory science surrounding the endocannabinoid system – including the cannabis-derived products that impact the human body and their current and potential future use when infused into everything from pharmaceuticals to cosmetics.

Moderated by CFCR’s Executive Director Sarah A. Chase along with Council Advisory Board Member Jack Jacobson, a cannabis, energy and education practices advisor for Thompson Coburn LLC, the panel will consist of FDA Scientists Cassandra Taylor, Ph.D. and Dan Mellon, Ph.D., Dr. Vicki Seyfert-Margolis, Chairwoman of CFCR’s Science and Regulatory Affairs Committee, molecular geneticist Dr. Reggie Gaudino, also a member of that same committee and Mara Gordon, co-founder of Aunt Zelda’s, a pioneering, data-driven developer of cannabis-based plant medicines

Offering in-depth subject knowledge of the still under-studied and often misunderstood endocannabinoid system, each of the three panelists will bring a uniquely varied area of expertise from molecular genetics, immunology, and patient advocacy. This webinar will help to unpack some of the complexity surrounding the long-term considerations for researchers and regulators. 

The event will take place over WebEx Video Conference, Thursday, February 24, from 1:00 until 2:00 p.m. EST. 

With roughly 125 monthly listeners already since debuting last September, CFCR has explored various facets of the cannabis industry in their monthly webinar series – including the regulatory impacts of a groundbreaking CBD study, as well as Federal and state cannabis policies.

Ongoing webinars will take place on the second or third Thursday of every month (depending on holidays), each to spotlight a wide range of industry professionals and focus on preparing to regulate and regulating today’s legal cannabis molecules and products. These virtual sessions can be viewed on WebEx. Each webinar will consist of a 40-minute interactive conversation followed by approximately 20-minutes of moderated audience Q&A for a total run-time of approximately one hour.
