Medicinal Cannabis : Traumatic Brain Injury

This module, Medicinal Cannabis: Traumatic Brain Injury, presents information on the use of medicinal cannabis in this topic area, and will cover: introduction to the disorders that will be discussed; overview of current treatments and their effectiveness; evidence and basic science rationale for medicinal cannabis use in this area; risks and benefits, including drug interactions; and recommendations for appropriate use (form, strain, ratios, doses, frequency).  The module will provide supplementary materials for further study.

Although certain states have legalized marijuana for medical and/or recreational use, marijuana remains a Schedule I drug under the Controlled Substance Act.  The growing, sale, distribution or use of marijuana therefore remains illegal under federal law.  Use of marijuana for research is permitted subject to specific federal requirements.  These educational courses do not provide legal advice with respect to marijuana.  Physicians and other healthcare providers are encouraged to consult their own legal counsel in regards to specific legal issues and risks with respect to marijuana.  


The purpose of this seminar is to provide evidenced based information in regards to medical marijuana and does not endorse or oppose its use.
