Monday (Colorado Springs)

Conscious & Cannabinoids
Dr. Robert Melamede



The Doc is back. A very rare opportunity to meet a living pioneer of well-being. We have the great honor to host one of the foremost scientists in the world regarding the medicinal value of Cannabis Sativa and Cannabis Indica. Dr. Robert Melamede is ready to bring the most cutting edge and up to date information on the data compiled regarding the Cannabis Impact on health. Dr. Melamede is a pragmatic scientist who sees immense well-being opportunities in this plant of life.

Throughout my life I have been fascinated and amazed by life, always wondering what it is and how it works. Modern molecular biology and far from equilibrium thermodynamics have provided me with answers that I find very satisfying. Simply and simplistically put, it is natural for the flow of energy and matter to act 'creatively'. This fact of physics serves as the central theme for all courses that I teach. It provides a scientific basis for understanding life and death, health and disease. I hope you will enjoy and benefit from this approach." -Dr. Robert Melamede

Dr. Melamede is the former Chair of the biology department at University of Colorado Colorado Springs. He teaches at UCCS courses on biology including Endocannabinoids and Medical Marijuana. Learn more, click here.

FREE! Donation is recommended.
