U.S. Used as an alternative to medications used for chronic pain and other conditions, cannabis is also the fastest growing industry in the country, with sales expected to reach $6.7 billion in total this year.
With such a dramatic rise in interest, there is an even greater demand for clinicians, dispensary managers, and edible creators to understand the indications, counter-indications, benefits, and risks of cannabis and medical marijuana.
