  • Description
    The time is now to get grounded in cannabis science and holistic care, with the evidence-based Cannabis: A Handbook for Nurses.

    This groundbreaking new guide addresses nursing skills and responsibilities in cannabis care, including the physiology of the human endocannabinoid system, cannabis care as it relates to specific disease processes, the history of cannabis, advocacy and ethics, and the ins and outs of cannabis dosing, delivery methods, side effects, and more. Essential for all practice areas, this is a timely, much-needed foundational resource for both students and practicing nurses who want to provide knowledgeable and effective medical cannabis care. 
     
    Get grounded in cannabis knowledge with science-driven nursing guidance:
    • Covers the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) 2018 “Six Principles of Essential Knowledge” for supporting medical use of cannabis 
    • Meets the NCSBN (2018) principles for all practice areas and all levels of nursing training and education
    • Foundational chapters provide:

      • Human endocannabinoid system structure and functions
      • Cannabis pharmacology and pharmacokinetics
      • CBD: The phytocannabinoid – dosing, drug-drug interactions, evidence of CBD effectiveness, and more
    • Focuses on the nurse’s role around cannabis care: 
      • Cannabinoid research findings – current evidence related to conditions such as seizures, MS, cancer, pain, PTSD, osteoporosis, opiate harm reduction and end-of-life care
      • The nurse’s role in cannabis patient care – nursing theory, motivational interviewing, coaching, spiritual care, ethics, and use of holistic modalities
      • The APRN role and process of providing care for medical cannabis patients seeking their medical cannabis recommendation 
      • Legal and ethical concerns –  cannabis-care ethics, advocacy, the current federal status of cannabis in the United States, and how to review a state’s cannabis laws
