Cannabis, appetite, and overall health - how much do we know? This session will describe trends of cannabis consumption, cannabis food products, product food safety, and various laws that regulate recreational and medical cannabis use. Come hear a live dialogue with two experts who actively engage in cannabis-related work: one in nutrition education, the other in policy research regarding recreational and medical cannabis use. Join us with your questions or to share your experiences with cannabis education and discuss opportunities to adapt nutrition education to better support our clients who consume cannabis.
