CARLSBAD, CA (PRWEB) AUGUST 29, 2016 - - Isodiol cares; the Southern California-based hemp cannabidiol (CBD) innovator has spearheaded a national public service announcement (PSA) campaign to educate millions battling prescription opioid addiction. “Addressing the Nation’s Prescription Opioid Addiction Epidemic with Cannabis” is a message conveyed by guest speakers: Dr. David Tonkin – renowned pain specialist; Larry Banegas, MSW – Native American Kuseyaay Wellness Center Founder; and Marvin Washington – retired NFL Super Bowl winner who advocates for cannabinoids as neuroprotectants in sports. The press conference is scheduled for 9:00 a.m. PT on Friday, September 9th at the Cannabis World Congress and Business Expo (CWCBE) at the Los Angeles Convention Center in room 501AB.

“As a community leader, we are proud to announce that Isodiol is doing its part to tackle the topic of prescription opioid addiction,” explains Jared Berry, CEO of Isodiol. “The U.S. Surgeon General’s message that prescription opioid addiction is the nation’s #1 health epidemic has resonated with our entire team. Through cannabis awareness and education, Isodiol is providing a resource for those battling opioid addiction to gain answers directly from industry professionals.”

The press conference will address topics including:

  • What is the difference between marijuana and hemp?
  • Primary cannabinoids (parts of the cannabis plant): THC, CBD
  • What is the endocannabinoid system and who has one?
  • Guest speakers’ personal accounts of individuals choosing cannabis over prescription opioids
  • Cannabis-based alternatives that are immediately available to consumers
