The Grass will soon be Greener - A Primer on Cannabis

With the impending legalization of cannabis in Canada, it is important to educate ourselves about the therapeutic properties of cannabis and our roles as health care providers in supporting the safe and evidence-informed use of medical cannabis to patients and reducing the harms of cannabis use.

Dr. Joss Reimer & Dr. Lynda Balneaves will:

  • Explain the basic structure and function of the endocannabinoid system

  • Discuss the historical use of cannabis as a medicine and its subsequent prohibition

  • Describe the role of nurses in the administration and distribution of medical cannabis

  • Identify strategies in reducing the harms of cannabis use

  • Describe the legal impacts of cannabis legalization, the experiences of other jurisdictions, and the shaping of legalization of cannabis in Manitoba and Canada
