The Practice of Cannabis Botanical Medicine
Dr. William Troutt, NMD, Lead Medical Director, Trulieve
Botanical Medicines have been a hallmark of humanity for thousands of years. They evolved from a specialized understanding and application of diet and nutrition to target health imbalances and disease states. The study of botanical medicines and natural compounds was the foundation of organic chemistry and patent pharmaceutical products. The World Health Organization reports that over 40% of pharmaceutical formulations are derived from natural medicines and 88% of the countries in the world use traditional medicines. Cannabis has been one of the most widely used botanical medicines known to history. Appreciation and application of cannabis therapeutics in the context of a whole plant botanical medicine greatly improves clinical practice outcomes.
Dr. Troutt is an Arizona and Maryland licensed naturopathic doctor with over three decades experience studying and advocating for cannabis-based medicine. Dr. Troutt graduated magna cum laude from Arizona State University in 1999 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology.
