For those who took Cannabis 101 and were intrigued, here’s the follow-up! We’ll talk in more detail about human cannabis use, medical properties, and where the research is today.  Of course, we’ll cover the various interests involved today that keep it illegal at the federal level. We’ll cover some of the “nuts and bolts” of growing, harvesting, and processing cannabis so that you can better understand the risks cannabis growers face. There will also be a discussion about what it’s like for cannabis businesses in need of risk management planning and insurance. Join Brenda Wells for a lively discussion! 

By the end of this session, you will be able to:

  • Describe the history of human cannabis use.
  • Identify the mammalian endocannabinoid system.
  • List the various parties interested in seeing cannabis legalized, and, the parties interested in seeing that it remains illegal.
  • Analyze various factors that affect cannabis crops.
  • Discuss the problems that cannabis businesses face in getting insurance coverage and comprehensive risk management.
