Cutting Through the Clutter of Cannabidiol Oil

Description

When patients today are looking for a pain reliever, the topic of cannabidiol (CBD) oil invariably arises. Will it work for pain? Will it help insomnia? Can it ease anxiety? Is it safe to use? Although the data on CBD oil are limited to its use as an FDA-approved Schedule V drug product to treat children with certain forms of refractory epilepsy, you need to be prepared to answer questions from your patients. Come to this session to learn how and get insights into the spectrum of CBD oil products.
