Carolina Science Cafe | CBD oil: a therapeutic cure-all?

June 3, 2020 @ 6:00 pm 7:00 pm

CBD, an extract from the cannabis or marijuana plant, is gaining attention. Once known as a “hippie’s disappointment,” CBD has now been labeled as a therapeutic cure-all, but its popularity has outpaced the science. How much do we know? Join us for a fascinating discussion of research findings by a team at UNC who are one step closer to treating a rare brain disorder using CBD.

Speaker: Bin Gu, Ph.D., Department of Cell Biology & Physiology, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
