51. Cannabis and Psychedelics to Cure Chronic Illness and Mental Health Issues | Dr Michele Ross
Dr. Michele Ross, Ph.D., MBA (@drmicheleross) is a neuroscientist and health coach with a passion to help patients with chronic illness live their best life ever. She is both a cannabinoid medicine researcher and became a cannabis patient after being diagnosed with fibromyalgia, neuropathy, and chronic pelvic pain, which allowed her to return to work. In 2013 Michele founded the “Endocannabinoid Deficiency Foundation,” later known as IMPACT Network, which was the first nonprofit to provide research and advocacy on cannabis for women’s health. In 2017 she founded Infused Health, an online platform for cannabis education and health coaching. Dr. Ross has authored several bestselling books including Vitamin Weed and Train Your Brain To Get Thin. Michele has been a guest expert on TV and radio shows including The Doctors, The Ricki Lake Show, and KFI, sits on the Medical Advisory Board of several companies and is active in drug policy and works to decriminalize cannabis, kratom, and psychedelics around the world as a founding board member of the Society for Psychedelic Outreach, Reform and Education. Dr. Ross has been featured as a speaker at conferences all over the world, including CannX in Israel, O’Cannabiz in Canada, Telluride Mushroom Festival in Colorado, and Cannabis Science Conference in Portland where she educates on cannabis and psychedelics for a broad range of health benefits and she became well-known as the first scientist to star on reality television in the world, starring on the #1 hit summer show, Big Brother on CBS, in 2009.
