Cannabis is legal so it has to be safe, right? The answer is an emphatic YES. Cannabis is among the safest substances on our planet. In fact, in 1988 the DEA law judge Francis Young stated, “Cannabis is one of the safest therapeutically active substances known to man.” And today, more and more people over the age of 50 are eager to learn more. However, as with any medicinal or herbal product, it is very important that consumers understand the components of cannabis and how to properly use it for best results.
In this Registered Nurse led workshop you’ll learn how to:
- Navigate the medical cannabis system
- Understand the uses of cannabis for medicinal purposes
- Understand the potential risks and benefits of cannabis use
- Mitigate “the high” or intoxicating effects
- Know your rights as a cannabis consumer
Who should attend:
