Sonoma State University in Rohnert Park, California, recently announced plans for “Medical Cannabis: A Clinical Focus,” a six-hour course aimed at addressing the “complexities and practicalities” of medical cannabis use.
The event, presented by Untied Patients Group in association with the Sonoma State Department of Nursing, will look at the issue from multiple angles, including a history of cannabis and an introduction to cannabinoids and terpenes, to a discussion of the endocannabinoid system, dosing and administration, clinical implication and drug interactions to a discussion on legal barriers and implications, covering conditions such as cancer, chronic pain and geriatric considerations and “Pesticides & More: What you don’t know.”
The course will be taught by Eloise Theisen, MSN, RN, AGPCNP-BC and will also feature Dr. Donald Land, chief scientific consultant to Steep Hill Labs, Inc., and a professor of chemistry at UC Davis.
The course is scheduled for 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. (with an hour lunch) on March 11 at Sonoma State University. The class will also be streamed live on the internet for those who cannot attend in person. General admission tickets are $120 at the door.
