Is CBD the Key? Exploring Cannabidiol and Medical Marijuana Through a Pharmacist Lens, Dr. Katelin Lisenby

Topic was requested by 2019 program attendees. With increasing interest in integrative and alternative medicine, cannabis products, including medical marijuana and cannabidiol (CBD), have become widespread across the country. The current opioid epidemic compounds this interest as providers and patients are also seeking additional options for pain management. While the lay press and media promote cannabis and associated products, the evidence is limited and only a few products have been sufficiently tested and received FDA approval. As accessible and trustworthy practitioners, pharmacists need to be well equipped to provide unbiased, accurate information on the benefits and risks of these products and therapies.
