Now I Know My CBDs!

Susan Marks, MSN, FNP-C, PHN

CEC: 1 Complementary Medicine (CoM)


Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the hottest topics in wellness today. There is a lot of misinformation and poor-quality CBD products, and you can buy it just about anywhere, including the gas station! This presentation will help attendees to navigate this new world of medical cannabis and CBD. In my practice as a family nurse practitioner, the most frequent questions I hear are: Does CBD really work for so many different medical conditions? How can I tell if it is a high-quality product that is reasonably priced? How should I take it, and will it make me “high”? How much should I take? We’ll cover all this and more!

Attendees will:

  1. Understand the plant sources (hemp vs cannabis) of CBD and their differences.
  2. Learn how CBD works in the body and the endocannabinoid system.
  3. Hear about the risks and benefits of CBD and how to assess the quality of CBD products (full spectrum, broad spectrum, isolates).
  4. Learn about the different administration methods and dosages.
  5. Hear about exciting research activities.
