In his acclaimed talk from MJ for MDs, Dr. Joseph Cohen introduces the concept of functional medicine and explains how cannabis is flipping the paradigm of the way medications are tested and developed.
Dr. Cohen also shares some of the nuances and advantages he’s experienced while running his cannabis clinic, which he started after 30 years working as an OB/GYN.
One critical nuance that U.S. cannabis clinicians are facing revolves around the heavy restrictions against cannabis research, which places increased focus on learning at the clinical level.
“With cannabis medicine, the clinical is leading the research. In most medicine, you have to do research to come up with a medication…with cannabis it’s completely different,” Dr. Cohen says, emphasizing the key role of clinical experience in cannabis and the importance or clinicians sharing their findings with others in the medical community.
This is exactly why conferences like MJ for MDs are so important, empowering healthcare professionals to help more patients safely and effectively.
