    Why Do I Need Marijuana Safety Training?

    Cannabis is one of the most commonly used recreational drugs in North America. With a growing number of countries legalizing the use of cannabis for medicinal and recreational use, it is important that you are educated on how to use it properly, as well as how to prevent, identify, and respond to cannabis-related issues.

    When it comes to refresher health and safety training, the standards in some instances are very specific. A so-called “free-pass” cannot be awarded based on experience, age, or time on the job. The extent of the evaluation is to be determined by the employer, but should include a written and practical examination that prove continued competency.

    Though there are more than 100 compounds (or cannabinoids) in the cannabis plant, there are two main ones that affect the human body. The first is tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is impairing, mind-altering, and causes the high of the drug. The other is cannabidiol (CBD). This is not impairing, doesn’t cause a high, and is often used medicinally.
