    The Science of Medicinal Cannabis: Implications for Mental Health Practitioners

    November 15, 2019

    This conference grew out of a discussion among a few psychologists who noticed a growing number of their clients were using cannabis for medical reasons.  We just were not sure how to respond. We didn’t know what the science had to say – nor did we know what the practice actually was. We did know that people have strong opinions about it.

    We decided to recruit a group of experts from around New England to teach us all about this very relevant topic.

    So far we have:

    • A physician who is medical director of a NH medical cannabis dispensary
    • Another physician who holds a Diplomat of the American Academy of Cannabinoid Medicine and who lectures nationally on numerous medical cannabis topics.
    • An Advanced Practice Registered Nurse who has extensive experience determining if her patients should be certified to use Medical Cannabis.
    • Psychologists who have been studying Medicinal Cannabis over the past few years.

    We are envisioning this to be the first in a series of workshops focusing on the Science of Medicinal Cannabis and will include additional speakers.

    We will be applying for CEs through NHPA.

    More Information Coming Soon!
