Program Description

Patients are demanding the use of medical marijuana for various chronic disease states, but there is a lack of medical knowledge on how to provide and improve health care with cannabinoids in various populations. With the expanding medical marijuana and CBD markets, pharmacists need to know the most current, evidence-based information. This program will discuss how pharmacists and technicians can effectively counsel their patients on the appropriate uses, benefits, and risks of CBD products and medical marijuana (Pharmacy Today, August 2020).

Participant Program Objectives

At the conclusion of the program, the pharmacists and techs will be able to:

  1. Identify the source of a given cannabinoid.
  2. Explain the results of medical marijuana efficacy clinical trials.
  3. Discuss the safety concerns associated with the use of marijuana for medical purposes.

TARGET AUDIENCE

This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of pharmacists and pharmacy technicians.
