In Conversation With Robin Ince

For nearly 100 years, cannabis has been the most popular illicit drug in the world. But what exactly is cannabis? What happens when you take cannabis? And what are the true benefits of cannabis as medicine?

We are in the middle of a global cannabis revolution. In this livestream talk, world-renowned Neuropsychopharmacologist, medical doctor and chairman of Drug Science, Professor David Nutt, will lift the lid on a plant that has fuelled cultural movements, stoked international controversy, entered political discourse, and, more recently, been recognised as having a transformative effect on people’s health.

In this definitive guide to cannabis, Professor Nutt will cover how it works, its medical uses, the dangers of dependence, how it affects our brain and body, and whether this plant – in its many forms – is right for you and your loved ones. This no-holds-barred exploration is rooted in cutting-edge science and will enable you to make informed decisions and form their own conclusions about the pros and cons of cannabis.
