Medical Cannabis Physician and Educator
Trauma is an event that has a negative impact on the mind, body, or spirit. It can affect all age groups and can take many forms leading to anxiety, depression, chronic pain, drug abuse, loss of physical function, reduction in mental capacity and/or other permanent consequences. For many patients, the traditional treatments offer inadequate relief, have unacceptable side effects, or remain too expensive to provide resolution of trauma-related symptoms. Medical cannabis may serve as an alternative for many of these conditions, but is there evidence to support its use?
Dr. Newton specializes in creating comprehensive care plans for acute and chronic pain patients. While his focus is on Non-Surgical Interventional Techniques, he also serves as a mentor to medical students, practicing physicians, and other professionals interested in the medical cannabis industry. Dr. Newton has hosted or presented on medical cannabis and other topics on several platforms, not limited to: webinars, social media interviews, television segments, medical cannabis dispensary tours and other educational opportunities.
