CBD, THC and Cannabis Derived Therapies for Age Management Medicine

Over the past decade, the medical use of marijuana, CBD, THC, and other derivates of cannabis has increased exponentially in the U.S. Well over half the states have enacted laws in some form to allow physicians to prescribe marijuana medically—and by 2021, all 50 states may have laws allowing medical marijuana in some capacity. AMMG takes no political position on such uses—we are medical educators. That said, it’s clear a definite gap exists in medical education for physicians/healthcare professions who treat a rising patient base that is requesting or inquiring about medical marijuana for a gamut of disorders. AMMG stands in that gap to better educate and inform physicians so they are qualified to respond to this changing medical climate.

  • Scientific Rationale for the Use of Marijuana, CBD, and other Derivatives for Use as Clinical Applications
  • Role of DEA and FDA in Use of CBD and THC
  • Cannabis and CBD for Pain: An Alternative to Opiates or Cannabis and CBD for Age Management
  • CBD for Autoimmune and Inflammatory Diseases
  • Reversing Osteoporosis with CBD Oil
  • The Endocannabinoid System and Unique Female Issues
  • CBD and THC in as a Treatment for Neurological Disease
  • Full Spectrum Cannabis- Benefits Beyond THC & CBD
Thursday, November 7 — Pre-Conference Track 3

Office Based Aesthetics for the Age Management Clinician*

In response to attendee requests for information on aesthetic protocols and treatments which are office based and can be done by non-board certified Age Management Clinicians either full time or as an adjunct to their existing practice, AMMG presents this track in conjunction with the Advanced Aesthetic Education Group. The decision not to accredit this track was made so that attendees could be provided with business tools as well as the science and medical information necessary to implement these procedures. The goal is not to make this track commercial but to give speakers in this niche area the leverage to openly discuss procedures and answer questions that could be severely restricted in an accredited environment.

In conjunction with the Advanced Aesthetic Education Group.
