This course aims to educate the GP about the use of cannabinoids as medicines, both when prescribed and when bought over the counter. It will discuss the basic biochemistry and pharmacology in this area as well as reviewing the indications for prescribed cannabis and the reasons that patients may cite when buying cannabinoids over the counter.

Funding was received from Jazz Pharmaceuticals for the production of this course. Jazz Pharmaceuticals reviewed the content for scientific accuracy and full editorial control remains the sole responsibility of the RCGP.
