Everything you need to know about medical & recreational marijuana: Rebecca Siegel, MD | mbg Podcast

Welcome to the mindbodygreen podcast! Each week, host Jason Wachob, founder and co-CEO of mindbodygreen, engages in open, honest conversations with the people shaping the world of well-being. Today’s featured guest is Rebecca Siegel, M.D., a psychiatrist and a licensed prescriber of medical marijuana in New York state.

– How to know if medical marijuana will work for you
– Is marijuana really a gateway drug?
– How men & women’s brains react differently to marijuana
– Healthier “swaps” for marijuana
