Marijuana has been legal in Washington state since 2012, and with the widespread introduction of CBD products as well, evidence-based information on its use can be hard to find. This will NOT be advice on “how to use”, but WILL feature:

  • Cannabis 101: what it is, how it works, CBD and THC.
  • Legal status of cannabis: federal vs. state; CBD (hemp) vs. THC.
  • Health effects and correlations (evidence-based therapeutic benefits and risks).
  • Washington Poison Center: what they are and how they can help.
  • Calls to the Washington Poison Center about cannabis (pediatric exposure).
  • Safe use and storage.
