Marijuana vs Medical Cannabinoids Presented by: Dr. Merrill Norton, Pharm. D., D.Ph., ICCDP-D Course Description: The use of cannabis, or marijuana, for medicinal purposes is deeply rooted though history, dating back to ancient times. It once held a prominent position in the history of medicine, recommended by many eminent physicians for numerous diseases, particularly headache and migraine. Through the decades, this plant has taken a fascinating journey from a legal and frequently prescribed status to illegal, driven by political and social factors rather than by science. However, with an abundance of growing support for its multitude of medicinal uses, the misguided stigma of cannabis is fading, and there has been a dramatic push for legalizing medicinal cannabis and research. Objectives: By the end of the training participants will be able to: Common conditions and their common symptoms for the use of medical cannabinoids; Short and long-term positive and negative effects of cannabinoid therapy; Products beneficial to patients and the contraindications for such use; Risks and warning signs of overuse, abuse and addiction.
