John Mini, M.S.C.M., L.Ac., is a licensed acupuncturist and herbalist who has lived and worked in the San Francisco Bay area, California since 1988. He’s studied Chinese Medicine and Taoist philosophy since he was a child and is always excited by it. Over the years many people who’ve used marijuana for a long time have come to see him in clinical practice. Those experiences have helped him understand and work with the effects of marijuana in very practical ways, treating them on a daily basis for over two decades. John has researched the classical resources on marijuana and its effects, and taken the time to work and talk with many living masters from around the world about marijuana and its effects. The results of his research and experience lead him to writing, non-profit work, leading seminars and workshops to help more people than he’s able to in his private medical practice. John is the author of the book Marijuana Syndromes: How to Balance and Optimize the Effects of Cannabis with TCM, available on Amazon.
