Florida Hempfest welcomes Dr. Barry Gordon as an official guest speaker for this year's hemp and CBD event. Dr. Gordon will be presenting "How to Speak to Your Doctor About Medical Marijuana."
"Dr. Barry Gordon, a native of Akron, Ohio, and a Graduate of The Ohio State University College of Medicine, practiced as a Board Certified Emergency Medicine Specialist on America’s front lines of Healthcare for over 32 years. He is now a recognized leader in the medical cannabis field, having established one of Florida’s most active Medical Cannabis practices, The Compassionate Cannabis Clinics of Venice and Fort Myers.
He has been appointed as a member of Florida Commissioner of Agriculture Nikki Fried’s new Medical Marijuana Advisory Committee, and will be leading the charge to expand patient access, as well as working to advance innovation and technology in the industry. Dr. Barry is eager to lend his unique voice to Commissioner Fried’s Committee; the voice of the patient and that of the “boots on the ground’ provider.
Very few others have been witness to the integration of Medical Cannabis into the lives of over 4000 patients, and to the benefits and safety of the cannabis plant. When not actively seeing patients, or traveling lecturing and teaching about medical cannabis, Dr. Barry enjoys everything outdoors, and following his beloved Cleveland sports franchises."
