Everything CBD: A Training for Community Pharmacists

Sponsored by: Sycamore BioPharma

  • Training Description

    Today’s pharmacists face both a clinical and ethical dilemma surrounding the medical use of a DEA Schedule 1 drug, marijuana; specifically, one of its components: cannabidiol (CBD). Evidence-based drug information on over the counter (OTC) and prescription medications with product safety guidelines have been the cornerstones of pharmacy practice. With the use of medical cannabis becoming commonplace in many states, pharmacists are often asked to give patients drug information on cannabis-derived products. This training is intended to provide pharmacists with the tools and resources necessary to ensure safe and effective use of CBD products.
