Interview with Paloma Lehfeldt, MD

In this episode Charlie Piermarini and Stephanie Ochoa interview Dr. Leyfeldt about her role in medical cannabis education. She explains how past education about cannabis involves only recognizing intoxication in the emergency room and how Western medicine is limited to single agent pharmaceuticals. Dr. Leyfeldt reflects on the complexity of the cannabis plant and the numerous medicinal properties it has going beyond one lock and key mechanism. She also talks about her dedication to social equity, restorative justice initiatives and the importance of gaining knowledge on the plant by all healthcare professionals.
