"Cannabis: chemistry & cooking" talk

“Cannabis: chemistry & cooking”
7-8:30 pm Mon Nov 18, 2013
Jigsaw Renaissance
The InScape Bldg, 815 Seattle Blvd S. Seattle 98134

With the legalization of marijuana behind us, it’s time to turn our attention to the science of cannabis. Let’s set the myths and hearsay aside and learn how cannabis really works. “Cannabis: chemistry & cooking” is a free lecture that presents the science of cannabis addressing questions like:
- Are the various strains really that different? How & why?
- What’s in cannabis besides THC?
- Why is everyone talking about CBD?
- What’s the science behind smoking, eating, & other ingestion methods?
- How can I become a cannabis nerd?

Prohibition and the war on drugs spread lies and disinformation, depriving us of basic science and botany. While the body of scientific research continues to shed light on the healing effects of medical marijuana, somehow it never seems to make the mainstream media. Let’s change that by starting the conversation among ourselves.

As we learn more about marijuana, both as individuals and as a society, we’ll make better decisions about personal usage, laws & policy, and how to grow and prepare our own medicine the more we know.

Whether you attend or not, please feel free to review the lecture slides:
