"After taking a cannabis course at a university, I felt I needed more clinical information and I got it with this course. Exact dosages for each delivery system with a focus on the products in a dispensary - this course is invaluable as a healthcare practitioner."
"More and more patients are asking me questions about cannabis every day. Before the medical course, I felt completely unprepared to answer their questions. After the course, I understand the products, the doses, how each cannabinoid works in the body as well as the pertinent drug interactions. Fantastic and valuable content. Highly recommended!"
