To CBD or Not to CBD: That is the Question? - Chattanooga

To CBD or Not to CBD: That is the Question? The Neuroscience of CDB oils Presented by: Merrill Norton, Pharm. D., D.Ph., ICCDP-D Course Description:   With the legalization of cannabis products (THC and CBD) for medical and recreational purposes in many states and with a majority of US citizens advocating for the legal right to consume these products, the use of THC and CBD products will increase and may impact the human brain in many ways. The human brain can experience multiple complications with regular use of cannabis products and the long-term effects of these complications are unknown. Are CBD oils beneficial or do they cause long term dysfunctions of the central nervous system? Now we know CBD as cannabidiol, an organic compound derived from the hemp and cannabis plants. We find it in health food stores and other shops. In pills and tinctures. Salves and creams. Chocolate bars, honey sticks, energy bars, sleeping masks and coffee, among many other things. And as the CBD boom continues to crest, we will encounter the substance in increasingly more products and outlets. This presentation will introduce the audience to the neuroscience of CBD oils, their benefits, and adverse drug effects.   Course Goals: 1.)    Evaluate medical cannabinoid products and their beneficial potential; 2.)    Contrast the various legalization processes of medical cannabinoids in the US; 3.)    Formulate the profile of adverse drug effects of CBD oils; 4.)    Discuss updated prescribing models for medical cannabinoids in the US.
