Oregon Coast wellness advocate Barry Heidt will be joined by father-and-daughter medical duo Dr. David Knox and Dr. Rachel Knox for a presentation on the therapeutic benefits of cannabis this Friday, Jan. 18.
Taking place at Salishan Resort, “Cannabis, Wellness, & Gratitude” will include a discussion about the endocannabinoid system and the mindfulness of self care.
Dr. David Knox is a graduate of the University of Washington and University of Washington School of Medicine. After 37 years of clinical experience in emergency medicine, he has expanded his expertise to include cannabis therapeutics. He is a proponent of the continued clinical study and scientific advance of cannabis for its use in emergent, acute and chronic care management.
Dr. Rachel Knox received her medical and business degrees from Tufts University after completing her undergraduate studies at Duke. She trained in family and integrative medicine before pursuing additional study in the areas of functional, cannabinoid and cannabis medicine.
As a clinical cannabis specialist who counsels more than 500 patients a month in medical cannabis care, she has seen first-hand how significant a role cannabis plays in helping patients reclaim their health, overall sense of wellness and their ownership over their lives.
Dr. Rachel Knox is a co-founder of TheCannaMDs and the American Cannabinoid Clinics, medical committee chairperson for the Minority Cannabis Business Association, a member of the Minority Cannabis Cabinet for Portland, a spokesperson for Doctors for Cannabis Regulation, a member of the American Academy of Cannabinoid Medicine, and serves as Vice Chair for the Oregon Cannabis Commission.
