The REAL Impact of Cannabis on the World


Please be aware that cannabis and related laws vary. Programming in this track is designed to inform attendees about this fast-changing industry, and does not promote the use or sale of illegal drugs.

It's generally agreed that cannabis will help the world. The medical benefits are truly staggering and we have only begun to understand the depths of applications for THC and CBD. It can bring tremendous healing to our veterans suffering from PTSD. It can help eliminate the dependency on opioids that is killing 130 Americans every single day. It can serve as an alternative treatment option for millions of cancer patients, chronic pain sufferers, and millions of other patients.

But the impact of cannabis goes way beyond its medical and wellness applications. In this session, Acreage Holdings President George Allen will share how cannabis could be a savior for civilization itself.
