Cannabis for Healthcare Providers

Although this course is targeted towards Health Care Providers, it is accessible, delivered in an easy to understand format, and open and available to anyone with an interest in understanding the therapeutic potential and applications of medicinal Cannabis.

Cannabis has been used by humans for many millennia for fiber, food, medicine and recreational purposes. In this Introductory course, we are going to look at an overview of its history, gain a wider perspective of cannabis’ influence on humans, and how it can help us in our daily lives.

We will delve into some of the current science of the huge number of constituents that make up its activity. It is now known that our body has a special mechanism, called the endocannabinoid system (ECS), which works with many of these specific plant constituents. The scent of cannabis (containing terpenes) has also been shown to have significant therapeutic value. Cannabis also has some unique and interesting botanical properties that we will explore.

By blending all of this information together, we draw a clearer picture of how cannabis can work with an individual. We will also look at contraindications & cautions helping to prevent over doing it. We will round things out with approaching dosage suggestions for a few common issues that cannabis has been shown to have success with.

Learning Outcomes:

-Understanding phytocannabinoids and their interaction with our endogenous cannabinoid system
-The Entourage Effect and why this it is important for best clinical outcomes
-How best to differentiate and choose species, cultivars and terpene profiles for therapeutic use
-Hemp CBD vs. Cannabis CBD
