Innovating Cannabis Conversations

In the fall of 2021, Medicate OH launched a series of virtual chat discussions on the Clubhouse app. Our Winter/Spring Clubhouse chats will continue this educational series for the community.

The Clubhouse app offers a platform for uninterrupted cannabis discussions—rare to find on social media. These chats allowed the editorial staff at Medicate OH to explore new opportunities to educate and inspire cannabis patients and enthusiasts. 

In partnership with Bonnie Rabin, professor at the University of Cincinnati, Medicate OH hosted diverse conversations on the cannabis and hemp industry with an audience of more than three-dozen UC students. During these conversations, guest speakers including founders of Queen City Hemp, Ohio CBD Guy, and many others shared their expertise and experiences. The University of Cincinnati’s Introduction to Hemp and Medical Cannabis course is on hiatus this semester, but past students and the community are encouraged to join in for this special learning experience. 

Continuing the Conversation in 2022

Join Medicate OH this Thursday for the first Medicate OH Cannabis Chat of 2022. For this episode, we will be hosting Dr. James Weeks of Cincinnati’s One Heart Medical. We will be discussing with Dr. Weeks the chemical effects and medical benefits of cannabis.

Dr. Weeks is a board-certified Internal Medicine physician with over 10 years in practice. In 2019, Dr. Weeks transitioned to Cannabinoid medicine and opened One Heart Medical. Over the last two years, he successfully petitioned the State of Ohio to add both Terminal Illness as well as Cachexia (or Anorexia/ Wasting syndrome) as qualifying reasons to obtain medical cannabis in Ohio. He hopes to add Opioid Use Disorder as a qualifying condition in 2022.
