June 1st – 8pm EST Join US!
We are launching our “Ask the Expert” monthly series with a live interview with Dr. Ayonrinde who will be answering your questions about cannabis during isolation.
At Exploring the Link, we recognize that people have a lot of questions around cannabis and psychosis, and that sometimes the answers we’re looking for are hard to find, or may come from questionable sources.
Because of this, we have created a way for you to interact with leading experts in the fields of mental health, addictions, cannabis, and psychosis through our new Ask the Expert series. Ask the Expert will be a monthly Facebook Livestream where we find reputable sources to provide evidence based answers to your questions, live!
Join us for our first session, co-hosted by YouthRex, at 8pm EDT on June 1st and leave a comment with your question to Dr. Oyedeji Ayonrinde.
