The largest pharmaceutical manufacturing conference is taking place this week in New York. The conference is called Interphex. I am not a fan of the pharmaceutical industry, which I have made clear over the years. That is largely due to the fact that the pharmaceutical industry pushes harmful substances, and historically ignores the medical properties of whole plant cannabis. I'm happy to say that there will be a cannabis presence at the event, which I think will be good for people to hear.
There's going to be a presentation called 'Medicine Authenticity: From Seed to Solution with Leaps in Cannabis Progress' led by two very, very smart people. Leslie Bocksor and Pamela Johnston, both from Electrum Partners, will be presenting. Both individuals possess a great deal of knowledge about the cannabis plant and its properties, and it's my understanding that they will be talking quite a bit about the benefits of tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV).
Right now cannabidiol (CBD) gets a lot of attention, but people should also learn more about THCV because of the types of ailments it can help. THCV can serve as an appetite suppressant, in addition to other things. THCV has the potential to to save the healthcare system and economy since it can be used very effectively to combat diabetes and obesity - two of the biggest health issues facing the world today.
Diabetes afflicts roughly 371 million people worldwide and about 29.1 million people in the U.S.. It costs America billions of dollars to battle diabetes, which can cause all kinds of health problems. It's my understanding that the Interplex presentation will be aired live online, and that you can go to the website at this link here to register and watch it. It's set to take place tomorrow, April 26th, from 3:45 to 4:30 pm.
I'll be stuck at work during that time, so I won't be able to watch it live, but I'm very hopeful that it will be uploaded somewhere so that people like me can see what the presenters have to say. I have had the pleasure of meeting Pamela Johnston before, and she has a very electric personality and a big love for the cannabis plant. She is super smart too, and I guarantee she will be dropping cannabis knowledge like no ones business (which will be needed at that event!).
Leslie Bocskor is one of the biggest champions for the cannabis plant that there is on the planet today as far as I'm concerned. I have met him on several occasions now, and I am always left feeling better about not only the cannabis movement, but the world as a whole, whenever I get done talking to Leslie. He is full of wisdom, and I can't wait to see him and Pamela cut it up tomorrow while presenting on stage. Go get 'em!
