Cannabis Care is a collaborative event between the American Cannabis Nurses Association (ACNA) and Kellen.
This event explores evidence-based innovations to inform nursing practices involving cannabis products, patient safety and affordable cannabis access.
With a unique focus on nurses, educational sessions will consider patient challenges and experiences with medicinal use of cannabis and further the understanding of the ethical and legal concerns associated with cannabis care.

The American Cannabis Nurses Association (ACNA) is a national organization dedicated to expanding the knowledge base of endo-cannabinoid therapeutics among nurses. It was founded by a small group of dedicated nurses who saw the need for an organization to bring nurses together in a collegial and informational capacity to discuss the growing use of cannabis in medicine.
Nurses provide direct patient care, using a holistic approach that incorporates the biological, sociological, and psychological factors of patients in their care. Hence, the public health considerations of cannabis use, the social and legal climate, and patient care issues are all directly relevant to clinical nursing practice.
