Pharmacy Technician Series: The ABC's of CBD (Cannabidiol)


A previous survey of pharmacy technicians noted that information on CBD was warranted. From personal experience, a gap in knowledge exists within pharmacists, pharmacy students and technicians when it comes to products containing CBD and making informed decisions about the use of these products. 
 
The goal of the CE activity is to educate and inform pharmacy technicians about CBD and products that contain CBD and understand some of the controversy around its use.

The Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 changed the federal definition of marijuana to exclude hemp, a strain of cannabis that contains CBD but has low levels of THC that does not give users a "high".  According to the DEA, hemp and hemp-derived CBD preparations that have less than 0.3% THC are not controlled substances.  But any manufacturers making health-claims about CBD-containing products will still receive scrutiny from the FDA and from state agencies.
 

 

 

 

Objectives
