The International Cannabis and Cannabinoids Institute (ICCI) recognizes the importance of providing doctors and other healthcare providers with up to date legislative information and scientific, peer-reviewed educational content. Medical cannabis education will help ensure that healthcare providers are making the best healthcare decisions related to the endocannabinoid system and medical cannabis, and that they are comfortable with addressing their patients´ questions.

To this end, the ICCI has partnered with the TheAnswerPage (TAP). TAP is a medical education resource that has been providing the highest quality accredited medical education to the healthcare community for over two decades. The recipient of education awards both in the US and internationally, TAP is a recognized leader in providing comprehensive education on the endocannabinoid system and medical cannabis, pain medicine and opioid prescribing practices. 

TheAnswerPage is the resource that I recommend for accredited education on the endocannabinoid system, medical cannabis, opioid prescribing and pain medicine.

    • Information is provided in English and applicable native languages
