July 25 - Enmarket Encourage Health Lecture Focuses on Facts and Fictions of CBD Oil

Savannah Business Journal Staff Report

July 25, 2019 - The facts and fictions of CBD oil will be the topic when Savannah chiropractor Michael Vaughn takes the podium at the third presentation in the Enmarket Encourage Health Education Series, set for Tuesday, Aug. 27 at the Charles H. Morris Center.

Attendance at the lecture is free and a healthy lunch is provided by Enmarket, but reservations are required at healthysavannah.org. The event begins at 11:30 a.m. at the Morris Center, 10 East Broad St. A regular feature of the program is the awarding of grants to nonprofit organizations, and at this session, Union Mission is the recipient.

Cannabidiol oil, better known as CBD, is a heavily trending product derived from non-intoxicating elements of marijuana or hemp and sold over the counter for the treatment of a variety of health problems.

In his talk, Dr. Vaughn will cover cannabis history and a brief overview of the human endocannabinoid system before moving on to examples of what are believed to be CBD benefits: relief of sleep problems, anxiety, musculoskeletal pain, brain injury and epilepsy. He will also touch on case studies that cover such topics as tumor shrinkage.

Dr. Vaughn will then discuss CBD’s legal status and its safety and benefits. Studies on long-term effects have yet to be developed, but he will share some insights on this developing field.

“This is a fascinating subject that holds the potential to be of great benefit to many people, but the jury is still out on many aspects of CBD oil,” Vaughn said. “I believe many people can find relief through CBD products, but I realize it is poorly understood by the public and that many in the medical field are skeptical.”

Dr. Vaughn has practiced chiropractic medicine in Georgia and England for decades. A product of Savannah Christian Preparatory School and Armstrong State College, he graduated from Parker College of Chiropractic in Dallas, Texas. He completed post-grad work leading to diplomate status with the American College of Chiropractic Neurology. He has worked with world-class competitive athletes, including serving with the USA Weightlifting Federation and serving as treating chiropractor for the Greece Olympic track team during the Atlanta-hosted 1996 Summer Olympic Games. He is currently in private practice at Savannah Chiropractic Center, where he specializes in the diagnosis and management of musculoskeletal disorders and rehabilitation. In addition, he continues to serve in a variety of educational and regulatory roles in his profession.

The Enmarket Encourage Health Educational Series is a wide-ranging presentation of diverse health topics. Previous subjects this year included meditation for stress relief and food insecurity issues in Savannah. Yet to come is an October presentation on the value of strength training at any age. The popular free series is presented in a lunch-and-learn format, with each session offering the community the opportunity to hear local experts discuss health-related topics in a non-commercial atmosphere.

This marks the sixth year for the series in partnership with Healthy Savannah, the Charles H. Morris Center at Trustees’ Garden, Cha Bella, David’s Dry Cleaners, the City of Savannah, Clover Health, Sandfly Family Dental, Savannah Morning News, Savannah Magazine, St. Joseph’s/Candler and WRHQ.
