See, Be, Deceived…or Relieved? Evaluating CBD for Pain Management
How many times a week (or a day) does a patient ask you about cannabidiol (CBD)? This session will take a deeper dive into CBD and learn how it compares to cannabis and what evidence there is (if any) to support its use in pain management. What considerations should you make when co-prescribing for a patient using CBD? In this session, we’ll compare and contrast the mechanism of action of THC and CBD and how each affects the nervous system and examine the published evidence on the use of CBD in pain management, including studied dosage forms and pain indications. Finally, we’ll review the potential implications of prescribing or recommending CBD for pain management.
