On June 29, 2019, MariMed Hemp, Inc. will sponsor and host an educational and product information seminar for physicians and local industry leaders. The invite-only luncheon will feature two world-renowned cannabis experts, Chief Innovation Officer of MariMed Dr. Jokubas Ziburkus (PhD) and Dr. Jaime Villamil (MD).

Dr. Villamil has cared for over 2,500 medical cannabis patients and recently published Medical Cannabis: Recommendations, Formulations, and Dosing (Cannabis Medicinal: Recomendando, Formulando, Dosificando).

Dr. Ziburkus stated, “The legal hemp CBD market continues to grow faster than the knowledge base about CBD for both the medical community and for consumers. As leaders in both research and product development and formulation, MariMed Hemp is committed to providing medical professionals and consumers the information needed to make informed and appropriate decisions on how best to use hemp and cannabis compounds. People everywhere are experiencing the benefits from CBD and we will continue to help customers choose the right products and the best formulations for the health benefits they seek. This seminar will provide updates on the basic science and practical applications of hemp-derived cannabidiol (CBD) product use. The event will also introduce doctors and business leaders to MariMed Hemp’s wholesale and physician programs, offering them an opportunity to recommend and provide hemp CBD products to their patients and customers utilizing MariMed’s Sprout™ technology, an all-in-one CRM and marketing software platform.”
