Cannabis is already part of the lives of many Canadians, and all health professionals and educators work with people who use cannabis or are cannabis-curious.
Spend a day learning: What is THC? CBD ? Sativa? Indica? The many combinations? What’s recreational? What’s medical? Methods of delivery? When is it a problem? What’s for sale at the dispensary, the clinic or on the street? What are the questions to ask clients? What are the risks and benefits for anxiety, depression, trauma & psychosis?… and a lot more.
Understanding the new cannabis landscape will help you to successfully engage with clients and students; to know how to question and explore cannabis use. This workshop will help you into leading edge research and lots of information you never learned in school.
