Janice M Vaughn-Knox MD
American Cannabinoid Clinics, Co-Founder

Dr Janice spent 32 years as a board-certified anesthesiologist before becoming an Endocannabinologist and Cannabinology specialist.  As a cofounder of the American Cannabinoid Clinics, Dr Janice stresses the importance of understanding  the pharmacology of cannabis and its application to the intricate physiology of the endocannabinoid system and the greater endocannabinoidome.  Dr. Janice feels endocannabinology is here to stay and should become a subspecialty in medical training. As medical care heads to precision care, the understanding physiology will always precede pharmacology.


The use of cannabis as a medicine is here to stay. Both its safety and efficacy have been well established through much anecdotal and clinical experience. This panel will review the current fields of study on cannabis medicine and reveal what the future has in store
