Edible cannabis, also known as edibles, are products that are consumed (eat or drink) that contain THC and/or CBD. There is a wide range of edible products, and although some products may look like normal food items, they are not intended to provide any nutritional value. These products are becoming increasingly appealing to children and teens. Nurses need to be knowledgeable of the signs and symptoms of potential overdose and be able to provide important counselling information to patients of all ages.
This virtual simulation game involves a Telehealth Nurse responding to an adolescent’s questions about edible cannabis.
