If you were thinking about checking out the very rare total solar eclipse next month, and you haven’t yet booked a flight or hotel accommodations for destinations like Oregon, Tennessee or points in between where the sun’s temporary concealment behind the moon will be visible on Aug. 21, sorry: you’re a few years too late.

Why is cannabis decriminalised in ACT and South Australia, but not the rest of Australia? With the now published scientific evidence of the medicinal qualities of cannabis and the lack of detrimental evidence, how can we justify cannabis being a criminal offense? This video points out the obvious, it's time to get honest about cannabis, marijuana, weed or whatever you wish to call it.
Dr Cristina Sanchez PhD answers questions about medical cannabis also commonly known as medical marijuana.
Cristina has studied the effect of cannabinoids on lipid and carbohydrate intermediate metabolism first and on cancer cell proliferation later. She obtained her PhD with Honors in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Complutense University in 2000. During her postdoc at Dr. Piomelli’s laboratory (University of California Irvine, 2000-2003) she studied the involvement of another group of bioactive lipids (lysophosphatidic acid and related compounds) on pain initiation.
In 2004, Cristina returned to Spain with a “Ramón y Cajal” contract (aimed at repatriating Spanish researchers from abroad) and she started coordinating a new line of research within Dr. Guzmán’s laboratory. In particular, the goal of her research is to understand and exploit cannabinoids as potential antitumoral agents in breast cancer. More recently, she has also focused her attention on new cannabinoid receptors and their possible involvement in cannabinoid antitumoral action in breast cancer and other type of tumors.
In this interview Cristina discusses her research on cannabinoids and it's effect on cancer cells, whilst also answering several interesting questions from patients with various types of cancer.
