Dr. Jennifer Anderson, MD, CCFP
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 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 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 continues to work in hospitals and ER.
Dr. Bridget Williams, MD
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.
