Cannabis Resources

Non-Medical Cannabis
Preventing and reducing cannabis use-related harms and risks are top-of-mind when it comes to the legalization of cannabis. Through screening, assessment and discussion with patients, primary care providers play an important role in harm reduction.

The Non-Medical Cannabis Resource is designed to equip primary care providers with evidence-based, balanced information to discuss cannabis use, its associated risks and benefits with their patients, and to screen for cannabis use disorder and related problems.
