Speaker information

Professor Valerie Curran, UCL Clinical Psychopharmacology Unit

Cannabis has been used throughout history for medicinal as well as pleasurable effects. Its 100 unique ingredients vary widely in different types of cannabis, posing a range of questions in terms of medicalisation and legalisation. This lecture will look at its effects, but also its potential.
