Naples Center for Functional Medicine to offer free seminar outlining health benefits of CBD, medical marijuana

Naples Center for Functional Medicine will host a complimentary, physician-led seminar on March 18 examining the extensive list of conditions that can be treated naturally by CBD and medical marijuana.

“Going Green: The Health Benefits of CBD and Medical Cannabis” will explore the growing use of CBD oil and medical marijuana in providing natural solutions to chronic pain, anxiety, insomnia, neurological conditions and more.

Since 1996, 34 states have legalized the use of cannabis for verified medical purposes. Florida voters approved its use in 2016.

In August, a Gallup survey found that 14% of Americans have used cannabidiol-based products, or CBD, citing pain relief, anxiety, insomnia and arthritis as the top reasons for use. It’s also estimated that Americans will spend up to $6.1 billion on medical marijuana in 2020 as they seek alternative treatments for cancer, epilepsy, HIV/AIDS, multiple sclerosis, seizures, Alzheimer’s disease, post-traumatic stress disorder and other conditions.

Dr. Carol L. Roberts, medical director at Naples Center for Functional Medicine, will lead the lecture. Roberts is a specialist in natural and holistic healing, and has practiced functional, integrative and holistic medicine for more than 25 years.

“The public perception of CBD and medical marijuana has changed dramatically in recent years as Americans learn more about the potential health benefits and low risk for side effects compared to traditional treatment options,” Roberts said. “Many patients are able to spontaneously reduce their use of medications for pain, anxiety and depression after using medical marijuana. Research has proven this one plant can have so many positive outcomes for regulatory systems in our brain, nervous system, immune system and elsewhere in our bodies.”

The free “Going Green” lecture starts at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, March 18 at the Naples Center for Functional Medicine, 800 Goodlette-Frank Road, Suite 270, in Naples.

Space is limited. To RSVP, please visit NaplesCFM.com or call 239-649-7400.
