MCC 220 Class: Providing Services and Products as a Medical Cannabis Practitioner under SB 94 Regulations

ON-SITE INTRODUCTORY CLASS:

January 1, 2018, California’s Regulations for the medicinal and adult use of cannabis became effective under Senate Bill 94.

The new SB 94 Regulations create opportunities for individuals to provide medicinal cannabis services and products as Complementary and Alternative (CAM) Practitioners specializing in cannabis therapeutics.

Currently, patients have very limited resources for the information they need to know when using cannabis to treat a medical condition.

Although federal and state laws uphold the physician’s constitutional right to approve or recommend cannabis, a physician may not prescribe a cannabis product or discuss dosage.

The MCC provides classes and clinical training for individuals who are interested in providing services and products as medical cannabis Practitioners.

LANDMARK Research Collective was established by the MCC in 2012 to provide a clinical environment to teach protocols for patient intake, product formulations, patient data collection and compliance under SB 94 Regulations.

MCC 220 introduces the opportunities that SB 94 Regulations create for individuals who are interested in providing services and products as Medical Cannabis Practitioners.  The Class explains how Practitioner services are provided in compliance with SB 94 Regulations.
