Padilla, who last year filed Senate Bill 230 allowing the medical use of cannabis, is scheduled to attend presentations on cannabis medicalization in Israel, as well as the principles of the quality, rules and standardization.

Other seminars are expected to touch on agricultural technologies and development in medical cannabis, as well as research and development (R&D)

In pushing for legalizing the compassionate use of medical cannabis, Padilla noted last year that many Filipinos — including children — continue to suffer from the effects of medical conditions such as seizure disorders and epilepsy, which may be addressed by medical cannabis.

On the other hand, he said there are many potential economic benefits from the non-psychoactive parts of plants from the marijuana species, for making more than 25,000 items such as paper, money, rope, cloth and even biofuel, laundry detergent, automobile construction parts, beauty products, hemp protein powder, hemp milk, hemp coffee and milk, particle board, biodegradable plastic, paint and insulation.
