Dr. Charles Whitfield

2016 Cannabis Conference


Charles Whitfield MD specializes in psychatry, addiction medicine and trauma psychology. In his clinical practice he frequently recommends cannabidiol (CBD) for opiate (pain killer) and other drug withdrawal, anxiety, stress and sleep. He will discuss how CBD helps in these common medical problems and in post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)─which many of his patients have. He will show how CBD from the hemp plant has ‘single edged sword’ properties in contrast to cannabis with high THC which has ‘double edged sword’ properties, which are clinically and practically important to differentiate. He is the author of several books, including the best selling Healing the Child Within. He is in private practice in Atlanta, Georgia.
