Medical Cannabis & Pain Relief Lunch & Learn with Michael Backes

Kahului, HI

Saturday, May 18, 2019

Cannabis researcher and author of Cannabis Pharmacy, Michael Backes will share the latest research on cannabinoids and pain management and how medical cannabis is helping patients to minimize use of prescription opiates. The $20 registration fee includes a hot lunch buffet and class materials.

In 2017, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering & Medicine reviewed more than 10,000 scientific abstracts to reach its nearly 100 conclusions. Researchers found there is substantial evidence that cannabis is an effective treatment for chronic pain in adults. Michael Backes will explain how and why cannabis helps to manage pain.

How do I get to UH Maui College?

The easiest route is to take Kahului Beach Rd. to Wahinepio Ave., you will see a large parking lot shaded by solar panels on the mauka (mountain) side of the road. You may park in any open stall. This event will be held in the Pāʻina Building.

What are my parking options at UHMC?

We suggest you arrive by 12:15 pm to allow ample time to find parking. May 18th will be a very busy day for UHMC's parking lot with the swap meet in the morning and Maui Brewers Festival at the MACC in the afternoon. There is no longer an overflow parking lot in the back of the campus due to the new solar panel installations.

Please know there are many handicapped parking stalls fronting the Pāʻina Building; the Leis Family Class Act Restaurant is located on the second floor. There is an elevator and the entire facility is ADA-accessible.
