Hi ya'll!

Hee, hee, hee, look who we were able to contract for a world class lecture on cannabis terpenes and their medical properties. Check out his papers on the subject!

Dr. Justin Fischedick, PhD
Cannabis – Cannabinoid and Terpenoid Profiling & Medicinal Properties
Please join us November 2, 2013 for our first in a series of international class lectures, starting with Dr. Justin Fischedick, a scientist with experience studying the cannabinoid and terpenoid chemistry of cannabis.
Dr. Fischedick will discuss the importance of understanding a cannabis strain’s chemical profile for use in medicine and clinical research.
This lecture will cover how to distinguish cannabis varieties based on their chemical profile, the potential medicinal / psychological effects of cannabis terpenoids, and the impact of such research on the future of medicinal cannabis.
Dr. Fischedick received both his Master’s degree and PhD at Leiden University in the Netherlands where he worked on numerous projects related to medicinal cannabis. He is currently a post-doctoral research associate at Washington State University studying other plants that produce medicinally valuable terpenoids. His scientific publications in the area of cannabis research include:

What type of audience is this meant for, sounds very academic? Would one need a chemistry or research background to benefit from it?


One doesn't need a chemistry degree to benefit from it, but Justin can take it to what every level is required or desired.

I dare say that the more back ground you have, the more you are apt to glean from his lectures, but it is directed toward brothers and sisters interested in terpene profiles by strain and why the addition of the different terpenes affects the strains overall effects and medicinal properties.

We've also contracted a California film group to film it and produce a professional DVD of the lecture, which will be available later, for brothers and sisters unable to attend.

The biggest advantage to attending, is that he is also available for one on one questions at the end of the lecture.


Long story, but the short answer is yes, though not as high a quality as we hoped.

The videographer was unfamiliar with the camera and failed to compensate for the light from the projection screen, so that is mostly all you could see.

When she finally gave up trying to save it, I took it to a professional studio, who was able to render it at least useable, though not purdy, so I just sent myself and the rest of the team a note to get it on line when I return from over the hill and far away next week.
