Because of the widespread use of cannabidiol (CBD), it is likely that clinicians will encounter patients who use this cannabis product. It is important that clinicians be familiar with the physiologic effects of CBD; its drug interactions; side effects; and for which conditions it has been shown by evidence-based clinical studies to be efficacious. This course is designed to acquaint clinicians with the information that will assist them in effectively treating and counseling CBD consumers.
Subscribers can complete the curriculum and refer back to the content at any point during their 12-month subscription period.
