This lecture will be devoted to cannabis (marijuana). Forty states have legalized marijuana use for medical or recreational use. Inevitably, some of these marijuana users will be treated by the dentist or hygienist. What is it? What are “shatter”, “wax”, “dab” or “scat” and how do they differ? What is vaping? What are the dental consequences of CBD oil? This presentation will discuss some of the concerns about marijuana use/abuse, and its bearing on dental treatment.
1) The evidence supporting medicinal uses.
2) The meaning of shatter, dab, wax and scat.
3) The impact of patient marijuana use on dental treatment.
Must be 18 years of age or older to attend this lecture.
