Approaches to the emerging business of cannabis products seem to change on a daily basis: Legal? Illegal? Beneficial? Harmful? This webinar will provide an overview of the current state of cannabis regulation. We will first discuss scientific definitions of various cannabis-derived substances, including CBD, THC, and hemp, and the pharmacology of how these substances can affect the body. Our experts will then provide updates to various federal agencies’ regulation of cannabis products, as well as implications for companies operating in states that have legalized cannabis for medical and/or recreational purposes. Finally, we will provide an update on international governing bodies’ approaches to cannabis regulation.
