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. And, 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.
