I had such a blast recording this episode with Dr. Leah Johnson (known to the cannabis community as Dr. Leah “The Holistic Healer”). She was so passionate in talking about improving healthcare utilizing herbs, and in particular her knowledge around cannabis is astounding, and I personally learned a ton!
Dr. Leah is a trained Clinical Cannabis Pharmacist and the owner and CEO of Alchemist Consulting. She is also an accomplished, highly driven clinical Long-Term Care & Rehabilitation pharmacist, with primary focus in pain, mental health (depression, anxiety, insomnia, etc.) and sexual health medication management. She also holds 3 patents (under the name: Leah Haibi) for natural herbal remedy tinctures, which she helped develop as the Head of Research & Development for an herbal supplement company.
Dr. Leah believes that complete physical & mental health and well-being can be influenced by the utilization of cannabis, as well as other herbal remedies and supplements, in conjunction with pharmaceutical medications. She believes that most patients are given too many and inappropriate prescription medications, while not being given the knowledge for utilizing effective herbals and supplements to reduce pill burden. She also believes that many patients are unable to get full relief of their ailments due to the missing components in their medication regimens.
In an effort to improve the overall health and well-being of patients, Dr. Leah works with patients and their healthcare providers, from all over the country, to reduce the amount of medications taken, alter timing and dosing of medications to improve effectiveness, and identify medications which could be causing issues. She also works with cannabis companies to advise them on dosing, safety, interactions, and how to better help their customers see health improvements with the use of their products. She also holds a Doctorate degree in Pharmacy from the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences.
