Program Overview

Cannabis is a legitimate and legal form of medical treatment in many states, yet today’s pharmacists often lack the knowledge to effectively counsel patients who have cannabis questions. Whether they use cannabis products for medical or recreational purposes, patients would benefit from conversations with a knowledgeable pharmacist who can guide them toward safe, appropriate use and minimize their risk for adverse effects.

We created RxAdvanced: Guide to Cannabis, in partnership with experts at the University of Colorado Denver to bring pharmacists up-to-date with science-based cannabis research.
