Full Bios of Panelists

Rebecca White, R.N. B.S.N.

Rebecca White, R.N. B.S.N., has over a decade of nursing experience, and over twenty years in botanical medicines as a practicing herbalist. She is also a cancer survivor who benefited from using cannabis during various stages of her treatment and recovery.

Dr. Rachel Knox

Dr. Rachel Knox received her medical and business degrees from Tufts university after completing her undergraduate studies at Duke. Though her formal training in Family and Integrative Medicine provides her with the know-how to treat acute illness and chronic disease, she is passionate about teaching her patients how to avoid – or reverse – them altogether. Dr. Knox believes that a person’s lifestyle is his or her truest determinant of health. As a Cannabis Specialist who counsels over 500 patients a month in medical cannabis care, she has seen first-hand how significant a role cannabis plays in helping patients reclaim their health and overall sense of wellness, especially when incorporated into healthier lifestyles. Dr. Knox is the Medical Chair of the Minority Cannabis Business Association, and co-founder of The Canna MDs and The American Cannabinoid Clinics.

Professor P

Based in Portland Oregon, Professor P has been breeding medicinal cannabis strains since the late 90’s. Ms. Universe, Oregon Huckleberry, and the preservation of the Blue Magoo line have been some of Professor P’s more notable works as his genetic selection process takes years to ensure each strain is rich in unique cannabinoids for a variety of medical conditions. Professor P’s work has yielded relief for many medical patients and improved their quality of life.
