While marijuana has been used as medicine for millennia, it has long been illegal in the United States. As more and more states legalize marijuana for medical use, healthcare providers and consumers are exploring marijuana as a safe and effective treatment for chronic pain, chemo side effects, sleep and mood disorders, MS, and Parkinson’s disease, among others. Still, there is lot of disinformation about marijuana. While doctors have limited knowledge on best practices for marijuana use, your friendly neighborhood budtender lacks medical training.

Thankfully, Mikhail “Misha” Kogan, M.D., a renowned expert on medical marijuana, is here to help. In MEDICAL MARIJUANA: Dr. Kogan's Evidence-Based Guide to the Health Benefits of Cannabis and CBD, Dr. Kogan, along with medical sociologist Dr. Joan Liebmann-Smith, demystifies marijuana and other forms of cannabis, equipping readers with the needed tools to take charge of their health.

In this one hour Zoom talk Dr. Kogan will review the most important aspects of use of medical cannabis for a variety of medical conditions associated with aging as well as providing practical details of how to obtain the best products as well as some of the side effects and pitfalls of working with dispensaries.

Dr Kogan is a leader in the newly-established field of Integrative Geriatrics. He is the chief editor of the first definitive textbook of the field entitled “Integrative Geriatric Medicine”, and is frequent speaker at a variety of international conferences on the topics of Integrative Medicine, Geriatrics, healthy aging, as well as medical cannabis. In 2020 Dr Kogan partnered with Joan Liebmann-Smith to write the book, Medical Marijuana for the general public. The book went on sale in October 2021. 

Dr. Kogan currently serves as medical director of the GW Center for Integrative Medicine and holds other positions at GWU. Dr Kogan is also the founder and the executive director of AIM Health Institute, a non-profit organization that provides integrative medical services to low-income and terminally ill patients regardless of their ability to pay.
