The guidelines include 10 recommendations on reducing risks associated with cannabis use, based on the best available scientific evidence. PHAC and CAMH have teamed up to develop a new set of tools to support professionals to promote the use of the guidelines. These include a slide deck, FAQs, poster and evidence summary.

We’ll provide a brief overview of the guidelines, new products and tools, as well as insights on how to present the guidelines in different settings.
