August 2019 Issue of The Cannabis Scientist

Antibiotic, antispasmodic and analgesic: we delve into the medical evidence surrounding cannabis compounds in our July edition, inviting a panel of experts from four different professions to give their two cents on cannabis for pain management in our cover feature “Perspectives on Pain”. Our contributors explore the need to accumulate scientific evidence to bring about changes in cannabis policy and changes in microbial testing of the plant, among other hot topics. This month’s Sitting Down With features John Abrams, Director of the Emerald Conference, as we discuss life in this booming field.
