About Medical Marijuana Awareness Webinars
Medical Marijuana Awareness Webinars are a series of online education events held by Florida medical marijuana experts with a mission to provide reliable information to patients in the comfort and safety of their own homes.
Before these events transitioned to an online format in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, these seminars were held at venues throughout Florida to educate the public on the benefits of Florida medical marijuana with an approachable and balanced platform. This in-person approach allowed attendees personal contact with medical doctors as well as holistic practitioners specializing in medical marijuana/cannabis. Nowadays these professionals join us for live webinars with attendee Q&A sessions, and recordings can be found on our Youtube channel.
Florida Medical Marijuana Awareness Seminars were jump-started by Marc Matoza and Linda Bruce of Marijuana Med Today. They noticed that the majority of medical marijuana conferences being held through Florida were held for industry professionals, not the people in need of treatment, and didn’t provide much-needed educational information. Most also had high admission costs, which effectively excluded many patients seeking a better understanding of cannabis beyond the prevalent social stigma.
Marc and Linda teamed up with MMTC and gathered a team of physicians, pharmacists, medical marijuana leaders, and patients to plan and host a series of conferences that would be approachable for people entirely new to medical cannabis, yet useful for long-time patients. Through a combination of speakers, practical product introduction, and interaction with medical experts and experienced patients, attendees can learn about how medical marijuana works within the human body and on different conditions, as well as how to navigate the system of laws and regulation surrounding medical marijuana prescriptions in Florida.
