Potential consideration for physicians regarding cannabis edibles

Author(s): Lydia L. Kim, Digital Content Editor

In early January 2020, the Canadian Medical Association Journal published a commentary from Drs. Jasleen Grewal and Lawrence Loh regarding potential concerns around the use of cannabis edibles.

One of the key points addressed in this commentary was that “physicians should openly discuss patients’ use of cannabis, including edibles, to enable [counseling] on safe consumption and driving, and to discourage the consumption of illicit or homemade edibles.”

The legalization of cannabis and cannabis products is still evolving in the United States, but this commentary has many global implications for nurses and other healthcare providers as this legalization process moves forward.
