Patients are using and asking about cannabis and CBD products with greater frequency, especially as marijuana has been legalized by an increasing number of states. There has been a tenfold increase in cannabis use in those over 65, as many older adults are turning to cannabis to treat health issues.

She will discuss the conditions cannabis/CBD may be helpful for, as well as proper administration methods and dosing. Janice will dive into the research, evidence base, pros and cons of CBD/cannabis, and appropriate medical use, with particular focus on the use of cannabis/CBD in end-of-life situations.
