Constance Addresses the Society of Cannabis Clinicians
Constance Finley, founder of Constance Pure Botanical Extracts, recently spoke at the quarterly meeting for the Society of Cannabis Clinicians (SCC), which was held on Dec. 7 in San Francisco.
While in attendance, she rubbed elbows with some of the nation's leading scientists, physicians and leaders of the medical cannabis movement. In reference to her close work with medical professionals regarding the use of botanical cannabis extracts as an effective treatment for glioblastoma and cancer patients, Constance remarked, "It is both exciting and scary at the same time without clear research guidelines, but as the oncologists see the effects it is becoming more accepted."
Constance continues to investigate the therapeutic effects of medical cannabis treatment.
About the SCC

The purpose of the SCC is to unite physicians and other health professionals from all backgrounds and areas of expertise who are "dedicated to the promotion, protection and support of cannabis for medical use."
