CBD, one of the two most widely studied cannabinoids found in cannabis, has become increasingly popular with consumers. It is currently found in everything from foods and supplements to beauty and pet products. Though there is much interest in its use for a variety of medical conditions, evidence of CBD's efficacy to remedy many of them is limited. Advising patients and clients about it is also complicated by the complex legal landscape surrounding the use of cannabis. This webinar seeks to shed light on current available peer-reviewed evidence regarding the medical use of CBD, the quality of available products and the regulatory landscape of non-pharmaceutical CBD products.
