Jefferson’s Lambert Center Offers Cannabis Certificate Programs in Emerging Field: WNYC

The Lambert Center for the Study of Medicinal Cannabis and Hemp is offering new graduate certificate programs in cannabinoid pharmacology, cannabis medicine and cannabinoid chemistry and toxicology to further education and research in this fast-emerging field, WNYC reported Aug. 30.

“Physicians are recommending (medicinal cannabis) and they are permitted by their states to be a legal recommender for cannabis therapies, but they don’t have a lot of knowledge,” said Judy Spahr at the Lambert Center for the Study of Medicinal Cannabis and Hemp at Jefferson.

She said the program is trying to provide research for evidence-based research for clinicians, especially with more doctors prescribing the drug to patients for conditions like anxiety, pain and epilepsy.
