  • The endogenous cannabinoid system and a description of the cell receptors, enzymes, ligands, and drug transporters relevant to cannabinoid pharmacodynamics.
  • The absorption, metabolism, distribution, and excretion of cannabinoids.
  • Principles of assessment and dosing when working with cannabis medicines and some best practices to consider when recommending cannabis for patients.
  • Extraction methods, delivery methods, and some commonly held misconceptions about cannabis.
  • Considerations unique to the senior patient population and how to use cannabis to treat illnesses and conditions typical of senior patients.
  • Categories of pain, the physiologic pathways through which cannabis can provide analgesia, and information about using cannabis to help treat nociceptive, neuropathic, and nociplastic pain.
  • Guidelines for helping patients identify and select safe products.
