It is no question that we need new ways and medications to manage pain outside of opiates. Could cannabis be the solution?
Dr. Andrew Coop is joining us again this episode to talk about THC isomeres. Dr. Coop received his Ph.D. from the University of Bristol in the area of chemistry of drugs of abuse, followed by a Fogerty post-doctoral fellowship at the National Institutes of Health. He has been a faculty member in the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of Maryland since 1999, serving as chair of the department from 2007 to 2015.
Today Dr. Coop sits down with Dr. Hal Altman MD, MS, and talks about his testimony to the United States Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP), his mentor John Lewis, and where cannabinoids could fit into pain management practices.
