Cannabis Today: Legalities, Consumption,
and use in Personal Care
Please join us for a joint meeting of the Chicago chapter of the WFFC and the Society of Cosmetic Chemists at the Morton Arboretum on May 1 for a buffet dinner and presentation on the current legalities and use of cannabis and cannabinoids.
We will have two speakers for this event:
Alvin All of Lomata Ventures will discuss the current legal situation of cannabis, along with the consumption and use in personal care products. We will learn the difference between medical marijuana, CBD, and THC, which is the psychoactive chemical in marijuana. Also to be explored are the forms of consumption of cannabis via topical application, sublingual, ingestible, and inhalation.
Our second speaker, Dr. Gene Frank, a registered pharmacist with Solo Labs, will address some of the pharmaceuticals benefits and concerns of cannabis and cannabinoids.
