MissMaeg is joined by guest cohost and friend to the show, Liz Jaylin, as we talk about "Cannabis as an Exit Drug" with the woman who coined the phrase, Dr. Uma Dhanabalan, MD, MPH, FAAFP, MRO, CMS. Dr. Uma is the Founder/CEO of Global Health & Hygiene Solutions, LLC with a mission to promote wellness and prevent illness. She created TotalHealthCareTHCmodel and practices/educates at Uplifting Health and Wellness in Cambridge, MA where she is dedicated to “Educating, Embracing, and Empowering” her patients while promoting cannabis as a treatment option.
She believes that “Cannabis is not an entrance drug, it is an exit drug from pharmaceuticals, narcotics, nicotine, and alcohol” and that the stigma of cannabis needs to be dismantled in order to help people heal in alternative ways. Dr. Uma is a trained physician in Family Medicine and Occupational & Environmental Medicine. She is also a Diplomat Certified in Cannabis Medicine.
