Pharmacists need evidence-based information on cannabinoid products and their therapeutic effects to provide effective medication management for their patients. With the legalization of recreational cannabis, pharmacists also have an increased public health role in safety and harm reduction, including counselling recreational users on how to minimize risk in general, as well as counselling on the impacts of cannabis on their existing medical conditions and medication therapy. Our practice resources in this area include:
