Cannabis is a legitimate and legal form of medical treatment in many states, yet today’s pharmacists often lack knowledge that prepares them to counsel patients regarding cannabis products. Whether cannabis products are used for medical or recreational purposes, patients always benefit from conversations with a knowledgeable pharmacist who can guide them toward safe, appropriate use and minimize their risk for adverse effects. Pharmacists can only fulfill their role within the healthcare team when they know as much about cannabis as any other pharmacological treatment. TRC Healthcare answers pharmacists’ call for cannabinoid education with RxAdvanced: Guide to Cannabis, 16 hours of ACPE-accredited training that brings pharmacists up-to-date with science-based cannabis research.

RxAdvanced Guide to Cannabis. Keeping pharmacists up-to-date with the latest, science-based cannabis research.
