2019-03-15 - CBD Expo Midwest 2019 - 'CBD vs. THC' Panel Moderator



On March 15 and 16, 2019, the CBD Expo Midwest 2019 was held at the Indianapolis Marriott East. From 11:45 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. March 15, 2019, I was honored to be asked to be a moderator at the “CBD vs. THC” panel. Here's the description:
“With CBD taking center stage this year, there has been increased coverage of this 'miracle' compound in the news. But it’s important to remember that THC is also a very important cannabinoid with some very powerful properties. While many enjoy the calming benefits of CBD without the psychoactive effects, dose-dependent effects of THC can be very beneficial for a variety of medical conditions. Cannabis science has rapidly advanced in the past year, with studies published in top-tier journals on CBD, THC, and CBD:THC. By comparing and contrasting the isolated effects of each of these compounds and how they interact in the brain and body, we can better understand how the endocannabinoid system works.”

Here are the self-submitted biographies of the panel:

Owner, Medie Edie’s and Elite Health and Wellness stores

I was born and raised in Indiana. I became a marijuana activist in 2008. I have always been interested in the healing property of the cannabis plant. What turned my interest into a passion was our family dog’s battle with epilepsy. This became the reason I moved my family to Michigan in 2014. After extensive research, and getting certified I started an edible and extract company. Medie Edie’s has successfully been setting a standard for our industry since 2014. It has been my dream to be able to bring back to Indiana my knowledge and expertise and apply it in hemp and CBD. I am looking to vertically integrate from working with the best farmers, to processing and making available a top quality product for consumers.

  3. THC binds with the cannabinoid 1 (CB1) receptors in the brain. It produces a high or sense of euphoria. CBD binds very weakly, if at all, to CB1 receptors. In fact, it can interfere with the binding of THC and dampen the psychoactive effects. To know more follow on Pinterest
