What you'll do

Hear Dr Yewande Okuleye discuss how the emergence of Cannabidiol (CBD) as a medicine for children changed the conversation about the therapeutic benefits of cannabis, and led to the creation of a new category of cannabis wellness products. 

There will be an opportunity for you to ask questions.
