A family of black physicians founded the American Cannabanoid Clinics that now operate in 19 states. They specialize in endocannabinology — a natural-based approach to disease management and reversal — and offer consultations, medical marijuana cards and alternatives to traditional medicine.
The mission at The AC Clinics is to deliver precision Cannabinoid Medicine to every patient looking for a personalized approach to healing. Let us tell you why…
The Endocannabinoid System
The discovery of the ECS in the 1990s should have marked the advent of a new, natural-based approach to disease management and reversal, and to a paradigm shift in the practice of health, wellness and prevention. It should have permeated the field of Western Medicine, but it did not.
Nevertheless, the field of Endocannabinology™ – the study of the function, dysfunction and modulation of the complex and intricate ECS – has emerged from decades of study.
The science and application of cannabis in managing and reversing disease has been studied for decades around the world leading to over 20,000 publications that include studies meeting the American gold-standard: the randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial. Along with valuable anecdotal evidence, we are now well beyond needing more evidence, more research, and more studies to validate the varied medicinal and healthful benefits of both cannabis and hemp. Continued study is paramount to better flesh out therapeutic mechanisms of action and meaningful clinical application, but patients are turning to whole plant cannabis now. As the legalization of the medical use of cannabis continues to sweep these great United States, patients are increasingly turning to cannabis (and other natural therapies), and need the support of healthcare professionals well versed in Cannabinology – the study of the pharmacology of cannabinoid and other cannabimimetic biologics – as they navigate their own health and healing.
Patients are eagerly seeking education and direction in using their cannabis medicine, and many would prefer ongoing, professional oversight in safely and adequately treating their conditions. The AC Clinics were created, in part, to provide such patients with direct access to providers who are not only extensively knowledgeable in Cannabis Therapeutics and Cannabinoid Medicine, but compassionate in their approach and commitment to helping patients in their pursuits of achieving optimal wellness through cannabis therapies and other natural, lifestyle modalities. To fulfill this commitment, The AC Clinics integrates evidence-based, Functional & Integrative Medicine with Endocannabinology™ & Cannabinology, coining the beautiful merger of these fields as the practice of Cannabinoid Medicine.
