The A-to-Z on CBD and a Product Line You’ll Want to Stock Your Shelves With


Valued at $5 billion in 2019 and estimated to reach $24 billion in 20231, the cannabinoid industry is fired up and it’s only the beginning.

Where does the opportunity lie? Independent Pharmacies.

MEDISCA and LP3 Network are proud to invite to the stage their new global partner and the leading provider of CBD to US independent pharmacies, Ananda Health. At the event, you will hear from Ananda Health’s Chief Science Officer and first doctoral candidate in any discipline to focus on cannabinoid science, Dr. Alex Capano, and Ananda Health’s Director of Marketing and pharmacy’s go-to for navigating the CBD marketplace, Samantha Timmermann. This powerhouse duo will provide an eye-opening dive into the cannabinoid world of today, from distinguishing hemp- and marijuana-derived CBD; to CBD clinical trial evidence supporting benefits in pain management, opioid reduction, women’s health, mental health, dermatology, and more; to the US regulatory landscape permitting the distribution of hemp-derived finished CBD products; to how this fits into an independent pharmacy business model and what to look for in appraising the safety, efficacy, and quality of a CBD product line.

Join us on the first segment of many more to come in educating yourself on everything you need to know about your critical role, as an independent pharmacy, in the safe and efficacious use of CBD.
