Cannabis and Bipolar Disorder What Do We Know? What Do We Still Need To Learn? Free Webinar: Wed, Oct 26 at 9am Pacific Time Could cannabis be used therapeutically for mood stabilization, anxiety reduction, and the promotion of sleep? What do we know about the potential risks and benefits of cannabis for those with bipolar disorder? In this presentation, Andrew Penn, a psychiatric nurse practitioner who has presented nationally on this subject, will explore the controversy. He will explain how cannabis works in the brain, what we know about the risks of exacerbating mental illness, how to reduce these risks, and what we still need to learn before we know if cannabis can be therapeutic for bipolar patients.
