Cannabis, THC, and CBD: A Paradigm Shift from Recreational to Medical Use

Recorded On: 09/22/2020

Cannabis, THC, and CBD: A Paradigm Shift from Recreational to Medical Use 


The vast majority of cannabis use remains recreational, but an increasing number of patients use cannabis and its constituents to manage chronic medical conditions. There remain few resources to researchers and clinicians to evaluate and recommend cannabis in safe and effective routes and doses. This session will provide an overview of the current legal landscape, evidence base, and current research to shift how we approach cannabis evaluation and educational efforts.

This webinar is partially sponsored by the American College Health Foundation Professional Nursing Fund.
