Speaker  Sâmia Joca: "The good, the bad and the truth about marijuana"

The recreational as well as the medical properties of marijuana (cannabis) have been known for centuries. Scientific investigation on the plant components (cannabinoids) and the mechanisms underlying their effects has shred light on the truth about cannabis effects (good and bad) on brain and behavior. The most important evidence and the state of the art on cannabis research will be presented in this informal talk with the aim to clarify common misconcepts regarding cannabinoids and cannabis properties.

Time: 14.10 and 15.20

What is the Festival of Research?

The Festival of Research is a nationwide knowledge festival that takes place each year in the spring with about 500 events and more than 65,000 visitors around Denmark. The Danish Ministry of Higher Education and Science is behind the initiative, which aims at bringing research and the Danish population closer.

Aarhus University will be opening its doors to the Festival of Research at Campus Aarhus, and the theme is FASCINATING RESEARCH. The event will take place in and around ”Stakladen” at Aarhus University, Fredrik Nielsens Vej 2, 8000 Aarhus C.

The iconic Stakladen and the surrounding lecture rooms will be transformed into a fun and exciting exploration site for research presentations from Aarhus University. In the lecture rooms close to Stakladen you can experience a wide range of speed lectures during the whole afternoon, and in Stakladen you can have an up-close meeting with the researchers, experience exhibitions and participate in workshops and tests. If you need a break from all the impressions, you can take a rest in the cafeteria.

The theme FASCINATING RESEARCH prepares the ground for a varied presentation of research areas from hard-core science to health science, arts and social studies.
