Marijuana, THC, CBD, and all their various manifestations (creams, ointments, gummies, other edibles, etc…) are really popular right now. If you live and practice in any of the numerous (and growing) states that have legalized its use, patients often ask about using these products. Even Reader’s Digest and Consumer’s Reports have done extensive articles on its use. But what is the truth about its usefulness in patient care? What does research show? Should we use it with acupuncture or herbs? And if we do, what are the potential interactions, warnings, and contraindications? This course will answer these questions and more.
A participant in this course will be able to:
- Understand cannabis and its constituents and how they may be helpful clinically
- Identify any potential interactions with Chinese medicine
- Determine if recommending cannabis derivatives is right for your practice
