ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwired - Aug 19, 2014) - Dutch Gold Resources, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: DGRI) (the "Company") (http://dutchgoldinc.com) today announced that it has entered into a joint venture with CEN, LLC to produce the most authoritative medical manual covering the use of marijuana as a healing modality.
The Medical Cannabis Manual is a 500 page comprehensive medical text for health care practitioners. Designed for clinical application, the Medical Cannabis Manual provides information for therapeutic use for substantiated and recognized disease entities and disorders, including recommended use guidelines, descriptions of medical cannabis strains, contraindications and adverse reactions, use with prescription and over the counter medications, and employment with alternative and complementary medicine. The Medical Cannabis Manual contains 10 quick-reference monochromatic charts and extensive research references for comprehension of the physiological basis for use of cannabinoids, making it ideal for both clinical and educational reference.
The Company intends to use the Medical Cannibis Manual to launch educational outreach programs to health care providers, dispensaries and MMJ patients. Publication of the Medical Cannibis Manual is slated for Q4 2014, as initial drafting of the manuscript has already begun.
"We recognize the pressing need for there to be a peer reviewed medical manual for health care professionals and for their patients," said Daniel Hollis, CEO of the Company. To date, physicians and patients have had to rely on anecdotal information as to proper use and side effects. The Company is committed to providing the kind of information and education that will positively impact safety and efficacy for patients.
In partnership with CEN, LLC, the Company envisions the use of the Cannabis Education Network, a comprehensive library of peer-reviewed and scientific literary and videographic articles on a vast array of genres pertaining to cannabis, as an educational resource for medical practitioners, patients, students, legal and horticulture professionals, industry owners, and scientists. Education is the most critical element of cannabis marketing because physicians and health care practitioners require published research to validate prescribing medical cannabis for patient use. Conversely, patients require scholarly and peer-reviewed articles to request prescriptions from their practitioners. Hence, the driving market force is valid, published research information.
"Education is the core of the medical cannabis initiative, providing the comprehension from which to medically validate and negotiate appropriate individual plans of care," commented one of the principals CEN, LLC, a limited liability company domiciled in Florida.
An 8K covering the details of this transaction will be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
