Leading medical cannabis leading experts discuss women's sexual health and the benefits of medical cannabis.

About this Event

Join us for what will surely be a lively and informative roundtable discussion with leading medical cannabis experts Dr. Leslie Apgar, Dr. Genester Wilson-King and Dr. Paloma Lehfeldt on treating women's sexual health with medical cannabis and the relevant research. The discussion will be moderated by CannabizMD Founder/CEO Jacquie Cohen Roth.

A woman's sexual health is an integral part of her well-being. There are several factors that impact sexual health including stress, anxiety, depression, pelvic pain, chronic pain, aging, and medications. Scientific research focused on cannabis demonstrates that cannabis is beneficial to treat each of these factors, directly and indirectly benefiting a woman's sexual health.

The cannabis clinicians will share their clinical experience using medical cannabis in treating women of all ages and share insights on medical cannabis research.
