The Hadassah Academic College in Jerusalem will provide a medical cannabis course for 90 students
As Israel is the global leader in medical marijuana research, with an innovative legal medical cannabis program providing treatments for 30.000 patients, the academic field is highly interested in advances connected to the plant.
Therefore, despite the recreational use is still illegal, science, medicine, biotechnology and agriculture constantly benefit from the advances.
If talking jobs, there’s good news also in this matter, as Hadassah is a career-oriented college, including for students aiming to further work in the medical cannabis industry after graduation.
Details on cannabis history, chemistry, legality, uses, consumption methods, side effects, black market distribution and medical research are all included in the course lectured by specialists in all the aforementioned fields.
Open to undergrads, grad students, and professionals, the semester class also connects various specialists working together and exploring new uses of the plant, as cooperation between interested industries might just be the key to finding out more about cannabis.
The course also aims helping patients suffering from cancer, PTSD, autism, fibromyalgia, psoriasis, epilepsy, bone and muscle diseases, irritable bowel syndrome, and pain. On the other hand, the less favorable side-effects will also be presented by certified psychiatrists. The class also provides information for the wide Israeli public.
