Viola Brugnatelli (padova, Italy) is a neuroscientist and endocannabinologist. She is part of the Neuroscience department at the University of Padua where she is a researcher and lecturer. She is the co-founder of Cannabiscienza, an education company for healthcare professionals on the endocannabinoid system and medical cannabis.
A long standing member of the International Cannabinoid Research Society, and Italian Ambassador for the International Association for Cannabis Medicine, Viola’s background is in pharmacology labs, specialising in orphan cannabinoid/terpenoid receptors and their signalling in pain and inflammation.
Currently she collaborates for the Fundación Canna science board, the Journal of Cannabinoid Medicine editorial board, and as a guest author for a series of magazines in the field, including Project CBD. Over the years, she has contributed to several CME courses on cannabis, educating physicians and pharmacists worldwide. She is the VP of a non-for-profit that aims to empower women working with plant medicine, LERN Herstory.
What fascinates her most about the cannabis plant is what we can learn and understand about the endocannabinoid system and how to modulate it in different ways beyond phytocannabinoids. Lately she has been closely working with anaesthesiologists who operate with hypnotherapy to evaluate the role of the ECS in the ability of altering our states of consciousness without drugs (placebo, hypnosis, meditation, breath practice etc.)
