Letter From the President

Dear Members and Friends of ACS,

Cannabis and cannabinoid medicine continues to evolve and the discussions at the state, national, and international levels continue to prioritize issues that conflict with patient care. The outcome of these discussions will shape patient treatment and our field for years to come.  I am proud that the Association of Cannabinoid Specialists (ACS) is on the forefront of this debate, advocating for our members and the patients we serve.

We strive to present members with meaningful education and tools to help them practice quality medicine.  I am thrilled to share with members – and prospective members – a host of new benefits in ACS membership, including:
