This is a comprehensive evidenced based course covering both hemp and cannabis. As cannabis and hemp laws expand nationwide, the dental professional must be educated on Cannabidiol (CBD) and cannabis derivatives: THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol), CBG (Cannabigerol), CBN (Cannabinol) and the essential oils of cannabis called Terpenes. Cannabis is currently accessible through the New Jersey Medical Marijuana Program; however legal access does not prohibit use and it is widely used by patients. This course will examine the NJMMP program, including actual patient case presentations from New Jersey Alternative Medicine Cannabis Certification Center. {Teaching method will be lecture format and Q & A period.}
