This course examines the ways cannabis-based interventions can offer pain relief as well as provide many other palliative-based care options. On-going research demonstrates how marijuana works on the brain’s cannabinoid receptors providing additional opportunities for other therapeutic uses. Methods of ingestion, such as dosing with extracts and CBD oils, vaping, smoking a flower, and eating edibles, will be examined to assess efficacy. Students will also compile a safety reference guide to ensure that their clients’ well-being is the most important aspect of any health therapy.
