I don’t intend to recommend medical cannabis. Why would I take this course?
With the passage of the Utah Medical Cannabis Act, Utah patients will be seeking expert advice and guidance for medical cannabis options. Some of your patients may already be utilizing medical cannabis options, and your practice will need to understand the physiologic effects of cannabis as well as potential drug interactions.
Even if you do not intend to recommend medical cannabis, expertise in the endocannabinoid system and medical cannabis is key to providing expert care for patients’ overall health. Doctors, pharmacists, nurses, psychologists, and other health professionals who become educated in these issues will be distinguished by their ability to address patients’ health questions related to the endocannabinoid system and the clinical aspects of medical cannabis.
