#83 - The Thoughtful Use of Medical Cannabis
Cannabis has been used as a medical treatment since ancient times yet still has an attached stigma. Laws are inconsistent from state to state and regulatory gaps with distribution and use exist. How do we responsibly approach this agent as a medical option?
Joining us for the discussion is Dr. David Traver.
Dr. Traver is a board certified pediatrician by The American Board of Pediatrics and an award winning Fellow of The American Academy of Pediatrics. He believes strongly in practicing as a member of a diversified health care team for each patient so he collaborates with many different health care practitioners, both in academic centers as well as in private practice.
Dr. Traver spent two years at Stanford University Medical Center’s Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. There, in The Pervasive Developmental Disorder Neuropsychiatry and ADHD Clinics, he became familiar with the treatment and management of individuals with Autism and ADHD utilizing psychopharmacology. Dr. Traver has been directly involved with autism research for the past fifteen years.
