COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., Feb. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- (NASD OTC: CBIS) Cannabis Science, Inc., a U.S. Company specializing in cannabis-based pharmaceutical development and related consulting operations, provides development consultation and financial support to Patients Out of Time, Inc., the premiere non-profit organization devoted to helping educate the public and healthcare professionals about the safety and effectiveness of medical cannabis. Cannabis Science is pleased to facilitate the critical work of this unique non-profit organization's ongoing conferences, events, workshops and global distribution of leading edge educational content and online resources.
CBIS's support includes supporting Patients Out of Time's marquee conference in Portland, Oregon in May 2014, entitled "The Eighth National Clinical Conference on Cannabis Therapeutics", and future conferences, helping to expand the organization's conferences from biennial to annual, for which participants or learners may earn ACCME (fully recognized continuing education) credits.
Patients Out of Time is a patient advocacy organization dedicated to educating health professionals and the public about therapeutic uses of cannabis. Incorporated in 1995, the organization is closely associated with leading research scientists on a global basis, medical and nursing professionals, and the four remaining patient participants in the federal government's Investigational New Drug (IND) program for cannabis.
"Attending Patients Out of Time's 2010 Conference led to my departure from the financial industry and my ongoing work in the medical cannabis industry. I feel both lucky and blessed for that experience, as it taught me one of the most important lessons: this industry is about patients and their health, not about getting high. I like to say that it is not an accident that the first word in the organization's name is 'Patients'. We look forward to the Portland conference in May, a conference that has become internationally renowned and a source of great pride for all involved," stated Robert Kane, Director and CFO of Cannabis Science.
