Cannabis Use Disorder
This webinar will delve into Cannabis Use Disorder and medicinal cannabis from two distinct perspectives: the development, prevention, and management of cannabis use disorder in patients prescribed THC-based medicines for other conditions, and the evidence for medicinal cannabis in the treatment of (primary) cannabis use disorder in contemporary Australian clinical settings. Professor Lintzeris will explore these aspects, providing insights into the complexities and challenges of managing and treating cannabis use disorder in various patient demographics.
