If the planet survives, if our society is restored to sanity, if the medical uses of cannabis are acknowledged, then it’s conceivable that Tod Mikuriya’s handsome face will appear someday on a U.S. postage stamp.
He was a pioneer in the field of herbal medicine. In his lifetime (September 29 1933 ,to May 20, 2007) his findings were ignored and ridiculed by those in power. He was prosecuted and persecuted, as many scientists have been throughout history. He persevered.
He observed and documented that cannabis treats an astonishing range of seemingly disparate symptoms. He hypothesized that its active ingredients must be working on numerous systems within the body. His insight was confirmed in the late 1980’s with the discovery of the body’s own “endocannabinoid” messenger system.
The Society of Cannabis Clinicians was founded by Dr. Tod Mikuriya and his work continues today through the global participation of physicians, clinicians, practitioners and caregivers.
