  • The key role medical cannabis can play in men’s and women’s health
  • How to buy cannabis products that are safe and effective for you
  • The critical reasons you should work with a cannabis clinician instead of a budtender

Meet the Experts

 Dr. Jennifer Anderson is a family physician who specializes in helping pediatric patients who have failed everything explore cannabinoid therapy. She started this practice 4 years ago after her son with cerebral palsy and intractable epilepsy turned around dramatically on CBD after failing all options. In 2016, she found it impossible to navigate and secure her son’s right to access CBD within the current medical framework and stigma surrounding cannabis.

After risking everything including her license to help her son, she now works to advocate and educate and share her story to help decrease the stigma around cannabinoid use in the pediatric space. In addition, she works as a preceptor for medical trainees and continue to work in hospital and ER.

Dr. Bridget Williams is a family physician and owner of Green Harvest Health, a medical cannabis clinic with multiple offices throughout Ohio. Green Harvest Health is the only medical cannabis clinic in Ohio offering life and wellness coaching.

Bridget brings nearly 20 years of experience in family and occupational medicine from Cleveland Clinic and training in life and cannabis coaching to her practice. The focus of Green Harvest Health is education and provides talks and clinics on medical cannabis, CBD and wellness. 

Rebecca Abraham, RN, BSN, has worked in healthcare for 15 years with extensive experience in Emergency Medicine, Critical Care, Heart Failure, Surgical Services, and Case Management. She also has a certificate in Cannabis Nursing through the American Association of Cannabis Nurses. Rebecca was awarded a continuing education scholarship from National Nurses United to Rutgers University's Women's Global Health Leadership Certificate program. She has testified and lobbied for healthcare, patient safety, nursing, and cannabis policies on the municipal, state, and federal levels.

Rebecca is founder and President of Acute on Chronic where they believe in educated guidance to cannabis, alternative therapies, supplemental treatments, and support navigating a complex health system. The team provides clarity to cannabis and healthcare because they believe that access to treatment, evidence-based practice, healthcare equity, and defense of patient's rights are vital to your health and well-being.
