Nursing is one of the most highly trusted professions and now that cannabis is rolling out across the country there is a greater need for more nurses to have the clinical understanding of the endocannabinoid system (ECS). We will explore how the cannabis nurse utilizes their working knowledge of the endocannabinoid system, cannabis pharmacology and current evidence for the purpose of helping patients access and effectively use cannabis as medicine.
