The UFCM symposium 2017 will take place in Illkirch-Graffenstaden, France, on October 20th, 2017. While the French government still does not seem to be approaching any agreement regarding the legalisation of medicinal cannabis, the yearly event carries on with its promotion of the use of cannabinoids in medicine for the sixth consecutive year.

The UFCM is still here in 2017

One of the missions of the UFCM is to connect and inform citizens of France as well as medical professionals practicing on French territories about cannabinoids; their properties, their use, their legal status, and more. They do so on a daily basis, in addition to supporting their members in their quest for better, more plant-friendly healthcare.

Their International Conference is an event meant to unite experts from all over the world for a program intensely focused on cannabinoids and their practical use in today’s medicine. Attendees are predominantly healthcare professionals from France and neighbouring countries, as well as patients, and members of the association.

France is known for being one of the harshest European countries in regards to cannabis. In light of the recent change in government, it is still unsure whether or not cannabis could finally become a topic of discussion within the government. Based on the country’s history in the matter, this is highly unlikely to become a reality in a near future.
This makes the UFCM symposium quite a unique event in the French landscape of all things cannabis. Despite the controversy that generally surrounds everything related to the cannabis plant in France, the UFCM has managed to receive the support necessary to their survival, and we are glad they are giving a platform to medical professionals aiming to change their relationship with the cannabis plant and its benefits.

We can’t wait for a time when patients and doctors will benefit from a wide access to cannabinoids without being persecuted for it.
