Online Program

Janice Newell Bissex, MS, RDN, FAND | Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, cookbook author, and Holistic Cannabis Practitioner

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.

Join us for a webinar that will provide a historical perspective on cannabis use and an overview of the endocannabinoid system. Our speaker, Janice Newell Bissex, a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, cookbook author, and Holistic Cannabis Practitioner, 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 cannabis/CBD, and appropriate medical use of cannabis and CBD, with particular focus on the use of cannabis/CBD in end-of-life situations.
