SECO Presents CBD, THC, and Marijuana Weeding Through the Choices
Speaker: Tracy Offerdahl, PharmD
Credit Hours: (2)
COPE: 65579-PH
The use of cannabis and cannabinoid products in multiple medical disciplines has exploded in recent years. This has prompted many medical practitioners to take a hard look at types of plants, types of products, and even their own pre-conceived opinions regarding these products. It is useful to have a basic understanding of how these products work, who uses them, and how they might manifest in a patient who presents for an ocular exam. For those optometric practitioners who choose to explore the potential uses of cannabinoids and/or cannabis products in their patients, it is important to understand the manufacturing issues, growing issues, chemical entities, risks and benefits associated with these chemicals. Additionally, legal and ethical issues will be discussed and debated with the audience.
