In today’s episode, we have the pleasure of speaking with Rachna Patel, MD for a second time. She gives us all the latest updates on medical marijuana and CBD Oil. She also treats us to a great lesson in terminology as well. We discuss her new book, her specialty line of CBD Oil and the course she is developing for physicians as well.

In this episode, you will learn:

  • What she has been up to since our last episode in 2017.
  • Why she is creating a course for physicians on cannabis use for patients.
  • What CBD Oil is and why it has become more common recently.
  • How to know if CBD Oil is safe for your patients.
  • Which conditions cannabinoids are being used to treat.
  • Why she decided to develop her own line of CBD Oil.
  • Why she decided to write her own book on this topic.

Rachna Patel, D.O. completed her undergraduate studies at Northwestern University in Evanston, IL and completed her medical studies at Touro University in California. After spending years training as an emergency medicine doctor, and working with patients to help alleviate pain, Dr. Patel ventured into the field of medical cannabis in 2012. In 2014, she started her own practice so she could offer people care they otherwise wouldn’t have access to. Dr. Patel’s knowledge of medical marijuana and CBD oil has made her an asset in the specialty. She has been interviewed on over 200 podcasts, has taken the stage internationally to spread awareness, has been featured in articles for Lifehacker and MindBodyGreen and has appeared on major news networks, such as NBC. She also recently published the book, “The CBD Oil Solution,” and it’s available now on Amazon, Barnes and Noble and independent bookstores across the country.
