The Rise of Integrative Cannabinoid Medicine
The Knox Family And Integrative Cannabinoid Medicine
Many are fascinated by the Schedule I drug that is being utilized by an increasing number of peers, medical professionals, and legislatures who find it a viable solution for many chronic aches, illnesses, and therapeutic reliefs. It’s from these reliefs that the term Integrative Cannabinoid Medicine has been coined, which is the use of cannabis to cure ailments and disease. Because of this new perception of cannabis, now both patients and doctors can focus on the preventive and therapeutic aspects of its consumption for health & wellness.

Knox Family Medicine Values on Cannabis
Thanks to both their advocacy and medical expertise, the Knox family has helped persons from all backgrounds and beliefs, teaching them how to responsibly use cannabis for illness, therapy, and healing.
Dr. Rachel Knox
“We call what we do in the clinics integrative cannabinoid medicine because we know that cannabis is not the thing that’s helping people heal. It is a tool that helps the body really heal itself.”
Dr. Rachel Knox is an international contributor to the medical cannabis community has spoken at the United Nations’ 4th Annual Power of Collaboration Global Summit in 2017 on the efficacy and science of whole plant (cannabis) medicine and holding a seat on the Oregon Cannabis Commission as Commissioner & Vice Chair. As a co-founder of The CannaMD’s and the American Cannabinoid Clinics, Dr. Rachel Knox still makes a great deal of time for patients seeking relevant and experienced cannabinoid care.
Dr. Janice Knox
“All these people are either failed conventional medicine, or conventional medicine had failed them.”
Dr. Janice Knox’s frequently states that her introduction to cannabis-curious consumers was shocking as she was greeted with a wide variety of patients, professionals, and parenting consumers of whom were very different than those that she was expecting to be in search of cannabis’ euphoric high. Her story is amazing as she mentions how her surprise experiences have compelled her to learn and study the endocannabinoid system with its response to phytocannabinoid introduction/supplementation.
Dr. Jessica Knox
“...look at the changes that are happening in these patients; that in a [traditional] primary care clinic, we just weren’t seeing with our own patients.”
Dr. Jessica Knox often recalls her introduction to medicinal cannabis with her sister, Dr. Rachel Knox. When Dr.’s David and Janice Knox would share the success of cannabinoid medicine with their daughters, neither member of the family imagined the clinics that they would govern to provide real comprehensive care while incorporating cannabis-derived treatment options.
Dr. David Knox
“More conventional thought is that cannabis could be used as a last resort, but I really firmly believe there’s a number of conditions that it should be your first resort.”
Dr. David Knox is a firm believer in starting with cannabis as a first resort. Dr. David Knox routinely counsels patients on how to utilize cannabis and cannabis-derived products to help optimize the endocannabinoid system without achieving the often recreationally sought euphoric high.
Are Doctors Allowed to Prescribe Cannabis in 2018?
The direct response to this question is a short, sweet and legal no, doctors cannot prescribe cannabis. In our efforts to keep readers engaged and informed, it’s important to discuss that doctors legally cannot prescribe cannabis. However, if you live in a state where safe access to medical cannabis is available, doctors are allowed to evaluate patients for state-qualifying medical conditions to sign approval, or recommendation, for an issued medical cannabis card that will allow you to access various products to help with those qualifying conditions. In states such as California, a state-issued medical marijuana card can help ease high tax burdens associated with cannabis sales. As a reference, some adult-users are paying taxes as high as 34.5% for cannabis sales transactions. If you reside in the state of California, tell our lawmakers to lower the cannabis use and sales taxes!
