Editor's Note
NCCIH will host a free virtual workshop on October 23 on the topic of the analgesic properties of minor cannabinoids and terpenes from natural products and the underlying mechanisms. It also aims to discuss current research barriers and opportunities on the topic. Registration and agenda are available here.
October 23, 2020 - 9:45 a.m. ET to 3:00 p.m. ET
Summary
The overall goals of this workshop are two fold—one is to convene principal investigators funded by NCCIH on the topic of the analgesic properties of minor cannabinoids and terpenes from natural products and the underlying mechanisms; and the other is to discuss current research barriers and opportunities on this topic. This workshop is aligned with NCCIH’s mission to support research on the fundamental science, safety, and usefulness of complementary and integrative health approaches. Specifically, minor cannabinoids and terpenes from natural products are part of complementary interventions supported by NCCIH. The workshop is also aligned with NCCIH’s strategic goals of advancing understanding of basic biological mechanisms of action of natural products and improving care for hard-to-manage symptoms, such as pain.

This workshop will be livestreamed. Please register via Eventbrite; a link to the videocast will be sent to those who have registered.
