United Patients Group Presents - Medical Cannabis: The Science Behind the Hype

Learn this protocol so you can hit the ground running when the time comes. It will be a lifesaving choice!

As humans, we have a natural aversion to thinking about illness, aging, and death. But here’s the truth: at some point in life, everyone will be confronted with a loved one’s serious illness. United Patients Group advises people to prepare now so they’ll be ready to address it head on. To help people learn about cannabinoid medicines before they’re overwhelmed by the chaos of caring for a sick friend or family member, the medical cannabis advisory service created "Medical Cannabis: The Science Behind the Hype.” This one-day seminar on November 1st at Dominican University of California in San Rafael, California will feature presentations by some of the most knowledgeable practitioners in the medical cannabis field.

The husband-and-wife team behind United Patients Group knows first-hand how hard it is to learn about treatment options in the middle of a family crisis. In 2011, Corinne Malanca’s father, Stan Rutner, was diagnosed with stage-four lung cancer, and his chemo treatments couldn’t stop it from metastasizing to his brain. He was given two weeks to live. Corinne and her husband, John Malanca, stumbled upon cannabis in a desperate search for treatment options. They started Stan on cannabis capsules, within two days he began feeling better. After nine months, he was in remission; the results still show, "No Evidence of Recurring Disease."

“We know from experience how hard it is to try to educate yourself about healthcare options while in the middle of a family crisis,” explains John Malanca. “Our goal is to educate people about how medical cannabis works and which treatments are right for which ailments, so they don’t have to go through the stress and confusion of trying to figure it all out in the middle of the emotional hurricane.”

The upcoming conference will explain how the body’s endocannabinoid system works, and how medical cannabis works with it to bring the body back into balance. United Patients Group invites all people who are curious to attend—even if they’re not sure about medical cannabis. For the medical professionals, CEU's of 6 Contact Hours will also be offered.

“We know there are many people out there who aren’t convinced that cannabis is the answer. We applaud your skepticism, and want to let you know that cannabis works quite well WITH Western medicine. It is not about choosing one or the other—it’s about knowing your options,” says Malanca.

The medical cannabis conference will take place on Saturday, November 1, at Dominican University of California in San Rafael, California. General Admission tickets are $50, and CEU tickets are $75. CEU's are provided by Patients Out of Time. “Provider approved by the California Board of Registered Nursing, provider number 16044 for 6 Contact Hours.”

“At some point we will all be faced with the question of how we can help our parents, best friend, husband, wife, or child. Don't wait until someone you love one receives a fatal diagnosis. Don't wait until there is no more hope,” urges Malanca. “Learn this protocol so you can hit the ground running when the time comes. JOIN US on November 1. It will be a lifesaving choice!”
