VANCOUVER, March 22, 2018 /CNW/ - Friday Night Inc. (the Company or Friday Night) (CSE: TGIF) (FWB: 1QF) (OTCQB: TGIFF), is pleased to report that its Nevada-based subsidiary, Infused Mfg, producer of Canna Hemp™ branded products, was invited to address a team of spine experts at the renown Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre, regarding the utilization of medical cannabis as an alternative replacement for opioids.
Canna Hemp's Director of Operations, Chris Rebentisch addressed an audience of orthopaedic surgeons, neurosurgeons, anesthesiologists, radiologists, pain management, and rehabilitation physicians during a course titled 'The Science of Cannabis: Cannabis as Medicine'.
"This was an exciting opportunity to partner with academia and health care professionals to help bridge the gap between conventional and alternative medicines and to engage in an in-depth discussion about the viable applications of cannabis pharmacology as it applies to pain management and rehabilitation," commented Mr. Rebentisch.
Brayden Sutton, CEO of Friday Night, remarked, "This was an incredible opportunity for our Company to join an important conversation with physicians. We are seeing increasing interest from established health authorities as they begin to implement their own cannabis regimes. Having an open dialogue with physicians on medical cannabis is important as it may improve access for patients seeking alternative therapeutic options."
