Sure - Canadian Substance Use Resource and Knowledge Exchange Centre

The "Normalizing Conversations" project team is thrilled to introduce Cannabasics: A Primer for Health and Social Service Providers. This primer serves as a valuable resource for healthcare and social service providers, delivering evidence-based insights into cannabis, its consumption methods, and fundamental principles of harm reduction. It has been crafted to offer a sufficiently detailed overview, enabling frontline professionals to engage in meaningful conversations with clients who use cannabis, and if needed, offer them  appropriate harm reduction guidance.

In partnership with the CPHA, the Cannabasics Information Package, initially published in 2018, has been updated by Dr. Daniel Bear, a cannabis researcher with nearly 20 years’ experience studying drug policy.
