Two Israeli experts in medical cannabis are due to speak this week at a conference held by the University of the West Indies in Mona, Jamaica, the Jamaica Observer reported this week.

 

 

According to the report, the conference, called "Wake Up Jamaica, Our Opportunities are Slipping Away", will on Friday feature Dr. Michael Dor, chief advisor at the Israeli Health Ministry's Medical Cannabis Unit, and internationally renowned medical marijuana expert Dr. Lumir Hanus of the Hebrew University.

 

The conference is organized and sponsored by the Cannabis Commercial and Medicinal Research Task Force and the University of the West Indies, the report said.

 

"It is an honor to have two medical cannabis research leaders from the medical cannabis research hub of the world, Israel," Delano Seiveright, the head of Jamaica's Cannabis Commercial and Medicinal Research Task Force, told the newspaper.

 

Israel has long been seen as being at the forefront of research into the uses of medical marijuana. Earlier this year, the Health Ministry launched a new website making it easier for patients to obtain medical cannabis via an online form. Israel has eight cannabis farms dotted around the country, distributing the drug to 12,000 patients.
