Summary

Recreational cannabis became legal in Canada in October 2018. Most recently, edibles were introduced, adding to the market of oils and combustibles. Consumption is associated with poor oral health, increased risk of oral changes and periodontal conditions, mouth and neck cancers, as well as the risk of opportunistic infections. Aside from the physical health effects, cannabis is also associated with addiction and other mental health complications and comorbidities, as well as occupational consequences. This session will focus on the risk-benefit profile for medically authorized cannabis and will provide a practical approach to treating cannabis use disorder in the dental setting.
