Professor Raphael Mechoulam, the godfather of THC

The Israeli Professor Raphael Mechoulam was the key speaker at the third edition of the UFCM iCare symposium in Strasbourg. The symposium was held on October 22nd 2014, when more than 150 health professionals, researchers and patients gathered to discuss the progress of medicinal cannabis.

Professor Mechoulam and his research group succeeded in isolating  tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, the psychoactive ingredient in cannabis, for the very first time exactly 50 years ago, in 1964. This extremely special moment in the history of cannabis was celebrated during UFCM in France.

Cannabis News Network also interviewed Professor Manuel Guzman, who talks about new research with cannabinoids on brain cancers.

After the weekend Cannabis News Network will release a video on cannabis cloning in Austria.
