Medical Professional Accredited Education

Written by recognized world experts, including Dr. Raphael Mechoulam, the CCC Program features online education that provides a comprehensive and in-depth introduction to the endocannabinoid system, and cannabis therapeutics and their clinical indications. The content, and its presentation, are designed to be of educational value and interest for those new to medical cannabis, as well as for those with years of experience in this area of clinical practice.
