About this Event

With the increasing acceptance and legalization of medicinal and recreational use of cannabis health care provider from all the healing arts are challenged to learn more about this new and emerging field in medicine, the cannabinoid health sciences. Does cannabis work? Can it work for me or those in my care? And, what is the evidence? In this seminar we will answer these broad questions with some basic answers. More specifically: You will learn about the endocannabinoid system (ECS), its rudimentary mechanisms of action and its functions; how endocannabinoids, phyto-cannabinoids, and other compounds interact with this system; discuss the safety profile of cannabis, its potential side-effects and addiction potential, higher-risk populations; and understand the potential role of cannabis as an ‘exit drug’.
