Workshop Description

cannabis and cbd

Many counsellors and clinicians are hearing from their clients about the benefits of cannabis and/or CBD for mental health and physical health conditions – some who have experienced rapid improvement in long-term conditions that did not respond to traditional therapies/medications. They wonder - if such results were possible for these clients, should they be discussing cannabis/CBD therapy with other clients who have similar conditions?


At the same time, clinicians have heard about the risks of cannabis, the increase in addiction rates and cannabis-induced psychosis, the role of cannabis in the onset of symptoms of schizophrenia, and the detrimental effects of cannabis on the developing brain. With such contradictory information about the risks and benefits, they don’t know which clients could benefit and which could experience harm.


Dr. Michael Verbora, a practising physician and leader in this field, will provide researched-based information and answer your questions. He will present the evidence known to date and the emerging science behind some of the benefits of cannabis & CBD therapy. The risks and adverse events seen with cannabis will also be discussed with a focus on the effects on mental health such as depression, anxiety and substance dependence.

 

You will receive:

An electronic handout package emailed prior to the workshop and a workshop certificate afterwards.  Login details and instructions will be emailed in advance of the workshop.
