Episode 54 (aka E09): Medical Marijuana

with Dr. Rachna Patel

Marijuana has now been legalized for medical use in 29 U.S. states (plus D.C., Guam, and Puerto Rico) and legalized recreationally in eight (twice as many as when this episode was originally released just last year). In light of these policy developments, marijuana has become the subject of much public debate within the political and medical arenas throughout the last several years. Like acupuncture, definitive medical research on medical marijuana is still relatively scarce, which leaves a lot of people both curious about and wary of its use. In this episode, Brodie talks with Dr. Rachna Patel, a medical marijuana expert, about how she uses medical marijuana in her treatment protocols and what people should know about using medical marijuana.

In this episode, we explore:
  • How marijuana works in the body
  • Separating fact from fiction regarding marijuana use
  • What conditions medical marijuana may help treat 
  • Where marijuana use isn’t backed up by medical research 
Dr. Rachna Patel has been practicing in the field of Medical Marijuana since 2012.  She step-by-step walks patients through how to use medical marijuana for their particular medical conditions.  She completed her medical studies at Touro University College of Osteopathic Medicine in Vallejo, CA and her undergraduate studies at Northwestern University in Evanston, IL.
