Expert to discus medicinal cannabis
Medical cannabis will come under the spotlight at an information session today.
Debra Kimless, an anaesthesiologist and chief medical director for Maryland-based medical cannabis grower ForwardGro, will discuss medical uses for the drug at a free event organised by Northshore Medical and Aesthetics Centre in Devonshire.
Kyjuan Brown, the medical director at Northshore Medical, said: “A significant number of patients in Bermuda suffer from a plethora of conditions that are treatable or can be assisted by way use of medicinal cannabis.
“For many years, I have advocated on behalf of the many suffering Bermudian patients who can benefit from medicinal cannabis.
“To that end, we at Northshore Medical believe it imperative to educate the general public on the uses and benefits of medicinal cannabis.
“We are excited to welcome Dr Kimless to Bermuda. We are both passionate about finding alternative solutions to address the needs of our patients and I invite everyone to come out.”
• The presentation will be held at 6pm in the Ruth Seaton James Auditorium at CedarBridge Academy at Prospect
