#74, Cannabis as Medicine ( Part 1 of 2) – Cannabis on the Brain and Gut with Dr Dani Gordon


Details

Seen any Cannabis products lately? We have, over the last few years, become completely inundated with cannabis products across the shelves of wellness and health stores. Online blogs claim miracle cures from everything you could think of. Sleep, anxiety, cancer, AI conditions, eczema, acne, libido. As a doctor I’m asked about this from patients a lot, but honestly I’ve had no formal training in the products and up until now I haven’t really looked at much research. So is this an incredible and legitimate supplement with a myriad of uses? Or is this modern day snake oil

Well today, I’m speaking with Dr Dani Gordon. Dr Dani is a double board certified medical doctor, integrative medicine physician, Family medicine doctor and world leading expert in CBD, cannabis medicine. She also co-founded the non-profit, UK Medical Cannabis Clinicians’s Society (MCCS), which trained the UK’s first cannabis medicine specialists and helped set up the UK’s first cannabis medicine centres.

She has lectured at Imperial College, King’s College, and UCL on medical cannabis. She also developed the first medical cannabis training program for physicians in the UK and is a consultant for clinical research in cannabinoid medicine working with top researchers around the world.

She is the perfect person to be speaking to on this subject and we have a fascinating conversation talking about:

  • Her first interaction with cannabis medicine and plant medicine
  • The historical use of cannabis as a plant medicine
  • The types of chemicals found in the cannabis plant
  • The endocannabinoid system and how cannabis may exert its affects
  • The risks of using Cannabis
  • The uses of cannabis in dementia, parkinsons, gut disorders 
  • Tips on how to use cannabis as a wellness product
