Just like a marathon, you’ll start at the beginning, quickly cover lots of ground, have an incredible journey of learning AND fulfill the Cannabis Control Commission (CCC) of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts education requirement for certifying patients for medical marijuana!!!
Your patients will appreciate that you chose to go the extra distance in being prepared to address their health questions related to the endocannabinoid system and the clinical aspects of medical marijuana.
Massachussetts Marijuana-thon™: Comprehensive Medical Marijuana Course provides a total of 4.0 credit hours and includes the following three courses:
1. The Comprehensive Medical Marijuana Curriculum introduces the reader to the endocannabinoid system and its interaction with the components of the cannabis plant, and addresses administration, therapeutic use, drug metabolism, physiologic and cognitive effects, potential risks, and drug interactions.
The use of marijuana in obstetric patients, pediatric patients, adolescent patients and elderly patients is addressed in detail. Important considerations for patients with ischemic heart disease, hepatic disease, psychotic illness, and those with a history of drug dependence are provided.
2. Health Effects of Marijuana and Cannabinoids in Epilepsy describes how the endocannabinoid system may affect seizure threshold, and reviews the available research and clinical evidence for the use of marijuana or cannabinoids in the treatment of epilepsy. In addition, there is a discussion about an FDA-approved cannabis-based medicine for the treatment of Dravet syndrome and Lennox-Gastaut syndrome which are two rare and severe forms of epilepsy.
3. Legal and Medical Considerations in the Recommendation of Medical Marijuana provides a thorough review of the considerations associated with the recommendation of medical marijuana, and information on the prescribing of FDA-approved cannabinoid-based medicines.

I don’t plan on recommending marijuana…why would I take this course?
Whether or not you have any intention of recommending medical marijuana for patient care, you need to be well educated in this clinical area because your patients will be seeking your expert advice and guidance for this medication. Further, some of your patients may already be utilizing medical marijuana and you will need to be aware of its physiologic effects as well as its potential drug interactions. As such, expertise in the endocannabinoid system and medical marijuana is paramount for most doctors, pharmacists, nurses, psychologists, and other allied health professionals to remain that respected guide for their patients’ overall healthcare.
