Cannabis Therapeutics: Advising Patients on Safe and Effective Use

Thursday, October 25
9:00 AM - 10:15 AM
Location: Tangerine WF2

Twenty-nine states and the District of Columbia now permit the use of some forms of medical cannabis. Decades of prohibition have resulted in a paucity of research and limited opportunity for professional education in the potential uses of cannabis as medicine. This session will provide an introduction to the endocannabinoid system and the principal phytocannabinoids and terpenes. Cannabis dosage forms and rules of thumb for cannabis dosing that may be used to guide patients in safe and effective use of cannabis medications will be discussed.
