Professor, McGill University, Montreal, Canada
Starting out in cannabis science: I began studying the role of the endocannabinoid system and THC in mood regulation in 2002, after observing my patients with depression who had a history of cannabis consumption.
Most exciting project: Unraveling the therapeutic effects of CBD.
The next 10 years: I hope that in the next decade we will identify the therapeutic properties of cannabinoids and stop thinking that cannabis is the remedy for all kinds of diseases. I also hope the next generation of adolescents will be aware of the negative mental health consequences of cannabis.
