Cannabis has been used for centuries to relieve pain, and it is a less dangerous alternative to pain-relieving opioids. Mounting evidence also suggests that cannabis could help people who are recovering from opioid dependence. Once demonized as the “gateway drug,” cannabis could actually be the “exit drug” from opioid addiction.

Adie Wilson-Poe, Ph.D. is a neuroscientist who studies the pain-relieving properties of opioids and cannabinoids, and how cannabis can diminish the negative side effects of opioids. Her long-term goal is to characterize the harm-reduction potential of cannabis in the opioid overdose epidemic. Dr. Wilson-Poe is also the co-founder of Habu Health, a consumer research group that studies the effects of adult-use cannabis.

_________

Science on Tap at the Kiggins is produced in partnership with Washington State University Vancouver.

*A note on advance ticket prices: there is a fee per advance ticket, but buying a ticket in advance confirms that you will have a seat at the event.

**A note on the suggested cover: Science on Tap is largely supported by money collected at the door from advance and box office ticket sales. However, we are committed to offering educational opportunities to adults who want to learn. If the event still has seats available and if $10 is a hardship for you, please come anyway and donate what you can.
