Cannabis: for Pain and for Pleasure… for Better or for Worse? – Coming Soon!
About the Course
Over the last decade cannabis and its derivatives have been catapulted from the shadows onto the main stage. Cannabis for medicinal or recreational purposes have been legalized in several states with few exceptions. Even physicians and clinicians who have traditionally shy away from supporting the usage of cannabis have had to rethink their positions. Some argue for the medicinal value of the drug, while others extol the recreational advantages. This presentation seeks to discuss the use of cannabis for pain or pleasure, including the risks and benefits, as well as presenting clinicians with a “toolbox” to work with clients who use cannabis.
