NPs can now prescribe synthetic cannabinoids

Jan 14, 2019

The provincial Drug Schedules Regulation has been amended and NPs in B.C. now have the authority to prescribe synthetic cannabinoids, e.g. nabilone. Before prescribing synthetic cannabinoids, NPs must have met the standards, limits and conditions for prescribing controlled drugs and substances.

The Scope of Practice for NPs has been updated to reflect these changes.
