At the conference presented by Dr. David Hepburn entitled "Cannabis and Cancer: the Promise, Potential and Practical Possibilities" Dr. Hepburn presented different points of view and promising advances in science on how cannabis could help against cancer. At the beginning Dr. David Hepburn established that has been several studies from serious institutions like The National Cancer Institute or NIDA (National Institute on Drug Abuse)

Dr. Hepburn is aware that in terms of research and development there is still much to be done to give medical cannabis the relevance it deserves in the world of cancer, but emphasizes that all these conservatives institutes “are acknowledging the fact that there have been a lot of preclinical and experimental studies with animals and now some clinical that are showing the promise potential and the possibilities that exist with cannabis in the world of cancer”
During his participation in Cannabis Life Dr. David Hepburn also stressed that "it is important to know that every one of us has cannabis in our bloodstream and that is an important concept to understand if you want to know how cannabis works as a medicine" This is in fact our endocannabinoids.
Dr. David Frederick Hepburn explains:

“The endocannabinoids system is a series of  what we call neurotransmitters receptors and enzymes that work together to make to bring us to a balance to homeostasis to a middle ground where we are healthy it helps us to eat, sleep, relax protect and don´t forget important things, it also helps us to avoid vomiting all day long” so if you do not understand the endocannabinoids system then you do not understand cannabis





In this way Dr. David Hepburn stressed the importance of continuing to investigate the benefits of medicinal cannabis, in particular for cancer treatments.
