The Impact of Marijuana Use On Student Achievement

The Relationship between Marijuana and Mental Health: Clinical Concerns and Emerging Strategies for Treating Cannabis Use Disorder

Acute and Long term cannabis exposure can have several unintended consequences in healthy people as well as individuals with psychiatric illnesses. Further, youth often seek information regarding the medicinal potential of cannabis and clinicians need to be informed on the current data on possible benefits and the associated risks. This presentation will explain how the THC to CBD ratio, genetics, age of use and other factors impact the relationship between marijuana use and mental health. Emerging strategies for managing marijuana withdrawal and motivating marijuana users to achieve and sustain abstinence will also be presented.
