Shift Client Receives High Acclaim From Local M.D.

Jun 22, 2015 Cannabis News

Dr. Joseph Cohen received his Doctor of Osteopathy degree in 1979 after and completed his residency in obstetrics and gynecology at Bridgeport Hospital in affiliation with Yale University School of Medicine in 1983. During his 30 years experience as an Obstetrician/Gynecologist he assisted in approximately 10,000 births.  Here’s what he has to say about Green Dream Cannabis, one of Shift Cannabis' pioneering medical marijuana dispensary clients.

“As a physician with expertise in cannabis medicine, I have had a close relationship with many of the dispensaries and growers in Boulder County.  We see many sick patients who are successfully using cannabis as an alternative to toxic or addictive medications.  Many of those patients suffer from chronic pain, seizures, autoimmune disease and cancer.  It had been difficult to get the appropriate strains to some of our patients and dispensaries often can’t keep up with the demand of strains that are high in CBD. 

Over the past few years, I was fortunate to develop a close relationship with Green Dream.  They have had a reputation for having not only the cleanest medicine around, but have been developing and growing strains that have had significant medicinal value to my patients.  These strains include Charlotte’s Web and Medicine Woman for our children with seizures, as well as Good Medicine for our pain, cancer and autoimmune patients (just to name a few). 


The budtenders and staff are the best trained in the industry and I know that when I refer patients to Green Dream they are treated with respect and are getting appropriate advice about the use of cannabis as a medicine.  I can call and talk to budtenders and discuss recommendations to my patients.  There is not another dispensary that I trust more with providing medicine to my patients.


Bottom line – The folks at Green Dream are great people.  They are kind and caring and treat their employees, patients and this wonderful plant with respect.”


[Dr. Cohen] is currently a member of The Institute for Functional Medicine and maintains a full-time private practice in Boulder.  He is the first physician in the country to combine functional and cannabis medicine and is currently writing "The Cannabis Friendly Guide to Wellness" which should be available in 2016. For more information on Dr. Cohen and his medical services, visit holoshealth.org
