In episode 50, I’m very honored to have Joe D. Goldstrich MD, FACC, as a repeat guest on the Medical Pot Guide.
Dr. Joe, as he likes to be called, is board-certified in internal medicine, cardiology and clinical lipidology, and Vice President for Scientific Affairs with Natural State Healthcare, an Arkansas corporation awaiting licensure. He is also a member of the Board of Directors of the Society of Cannabis Clinicians.
From 2012 to 2014 Dr. Joe personally worked with and learned from over 3500 California patients seeking medical cannabis recommendations for a wide variety of medical conditions.
In 2014, after seeing definitive scans demonstrating regression of tumors following treatment with cannabis, he has devoted himself to learning how to better accomplish these results. Applying evidence-based principles learned from a long career in traditional and integrative medicine, Dr. Joe has utilized pre-clinical research to create therapeutic state-of-the-art anti-neoplastic cannabis therapeutic protocols.
