Andrew Bachman, MD
"Medicinal Marijuana Use in the Pediatric Population"


“What is a weed?  It is a plant whose virtues are yet to be discovered.”

- Ralph Waldo Emerson




With cannabis utilized medicinally the world over for millennia and now legalized for the same in 29 States, Guam, Puerto Rico, and Washington D.C., its clinical relevance, acceptance and use in America as a complement or alternative to traditional western medical therapies is on the rise.


This lecture presents an expert overview of the past, present and future of strictly-regulated cannabis as medicine, focusing on the clinical and practical therapeutic applications and potential of cannabis and the endocannabinoid system in pediatric populations and well-beyond.




At the completion of this session, participants will be able to:



  • Cite claimed and verified medical uses for cannabinoids

  • Communicate a historical overview of medical cannabis use internationally

  • Outline current medical cannabis use in the U.S. & the impact of legalization on public health

  • Describe the actions of cannabinoids (e.g., THC & CBD) and their pharmacology in humans



When you know better, do better.” These words by Maya Angelou inspire Andrew Bachman’s approach to medicine and caregiving. After more than a decade working as an emergency medicine doctor, Bachman saw firsthand the shortcomings of available pharmaceutical therapies. This led him to research alternative and complementary options, including medical cannabis. Bachman’s vision for LeafLine Labs is to bring safe, consistent, and high-quality medical cannabis and compassionate care delivery to Minnesotans.  It’s a new model for health care, one grown from the roots of early medicine that brings patients and caregivers together in the same space to facilitate more natural, compassionate interactions.  A Minnesota native, Bachman completed his emergency medicine residency at Hennepin County Medical Center, received his medical degree from Georgetown University School of Medicine and earned his undergraduate degree in biology from Amherst College.  As the Founder of LeafLine Labs, LLC, he serves as the company's Chief Executive Officer & Board Chairman and presently serves on the Board of Directors of the Bakken Museum and Family Pharm, both of which are based in Minneapolis, MN.


This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the standards of the Academy of General Dentistry Program Approval for Continuing Education (PACE) through program approval of the College of Diplomates of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. COD is approved for awarding FAGD/MAGD credit.
A maximum of 1.5 CE credit hours are available.
