Session Description: Focus: Anxiety & Depression
It seems that everywhere we turn there is an article, a webinar, or a presentation about CBD (cannabidiol): what it is, how it affects the endocannabinoid system, and what the limited research has to tell us about it’s therapeutic potential. As fascinating as these learning opportunities are, what most of us wish we had is more information on how to use it safely and effectively in practice. In this need-to-know clinical primer, Dr. Aimée will share 4 case studies from her practice focusing on CBD for anxiety and depression, and use these examples as a means to review clinical pearls for dosing, drug interactions, product selection, and more.
- Learn about four patients’ successful experience using CBD for depression and anxiety.
- Explore dosing strategies and practicalities of dosing titration.
- Review known issues with cannabinoid-drug interactions and discuss extreme variations in products.
