How One Doctor Transitioned to a Successful Medical Cannabis Specialty
After beginning her career in pediatric emergency medicine, a taxing yet rewarding medical field, Dr. Bonni Goldstein finally hit the burnout challenge that many physicians today experience. After taking time off, she made an abrupt career transition about 10 years ago and immersed herself in studying the endocannabinoid system, the recently discovered system that regulates and controls many critical bodily functions. After becoming fascinated by the potential, Dr. Goldstein launched Canna-Centers Wellness & Education practice in Southern California, and now calls the field of medical cannabis “extremely rewarding work.” Her practice has helped thousands of adults and children with serious or chronic conditions improve their quality of life.
Her latest book — Cannabis is Medicine: How Medical Cannabis and CBD are Healing Everything from Anxiety to Chronic Pain — was published by Little, Brown Spark in September 2020. For more information visit:
