MyCannabisIQ – A Resource for Families

TitleMyCannabisIQ: A resource for families/loved ones
Version DateJuly 2018


Being there for your loved one while they make decisions about cannabis use is not always easy. Having the right information is key to helping your loved one make informed decisions about whether or not to use cannabis. It is important to have the facts and background knowledge in order to be as supportive as possible.

We know how important it is to make decisions that work for you and your family. This booklet was created by EPION’s members to help you and your loved ones stay in-the-know about cannabis, its side effects, and the risk factors to keep in mind before deciding to use.
