Course Description

With the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill, hemp and CBD are no longer Schedule One drugs, and as unscheduled agricultural products from the legally grown hemp plant, veterinarians are able to now recommend and dispense this important emerging therapy. Come learn about the plant molecules that have created this green revolution, CBD and THC and others, and learn about how the body receives these exogenous ligands into its own endocannabinoid system of receptors.

Things to Learn

This talk provides entry level learning about veterinary medical cannabis, its use, its safety, the studies supporting its application in veterinary medicine, and the regulatory environment for veterinarians in the US and Canada.
