Question of the Day

Are there any specific precautions for the use of cannabinoids in the elderly population?

Elderly patients typically metabolize drugs more slowly and tend to be more sensitive to pharmacological effects than younger adults. Dosing in elderly patients should be initiated at very low doses and dose adjustments should be done slowly (the ‘start low, go slow’ approach) with careful monitoring, particularly by caregivers and the medical support team members.
