About the program: This timely and provocative seminar will include an overview of cannabis, the various cannabinoids (endogenous, phyto-cannabinoids and pharmaceutical cannabinoid products) and the newly discovered endogenous cannabinoid system (ECS) that is present in all humans. By understanding the ECS, it becomes more clear as to how and why cannabis is a safe and effective medication for a wide array of illnesses and conditions. The healthcare professional’s role in patient care and education regarding the safe use of cannabis, including ingestion methodologies and interactions with prescription opiates, will be discussed. State and federal laws regarding cannabis as medicine will also be presented.
There will be short comfort breaks in the morning and afternoon, and a break for lunch. Lunch, from 1-2pm, is on your own.
Refunds: In cases of non-attendance (less $20.00 administrative handling fee), refunds will be provided upon notice to Patients Out of Time if received seven (7) days in advance of the seminar. After that time, no refunds will be given.
This seminar is sponsored by Patients Out of Time, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to educate all disciplines of health care professionals, their specialty and professional organizations, and the public at large about medical cannabis (marijuana).
