Dr. Leah Johnson
Medical Cannabis Pharmacist
Dr. Leah Johnson is a trained Medical Cannabis Pharmacist and the owner and founder of Alchemist Consulting LLC. She is also an accomplished, highly driven Clinical Integrative Health Pharmacist, with primary focus in pain, mental health (depression, anxiety, insomnia, Autism, etc.) and geriatric medication management. She also holds 3 patents (under her maiden name: Leah Haibi) for natural herbal remedy tinctures, which she helped develop as the Head of Research & Development for an herbal supplement company in Connecticut.
Dr. Leah believes that complete physical/mental health and well-being can be influenced by the utilization of cannabis, as well as other herbal remedies and supplements, in conjunction with pharmaceutical medications. She believes that most patients are given too many and often inappropriate prescription medications, while not being given the knowledge for utilizing effective herbals and supplements to reduce pill burden. She also believes that many patients are unable to get full relief of their ailments due to the missing components in their medication regimens. In an effort to improve the overall health and well-being of patients, Dr. Leah works with patients and their healthcare providers, from all over the US, to reduce the amount of medications taken, alter timing and dosing of medications to improve effectiveness, and identify medications which could be causing issues. She also works with cannabis companies to advise them on formulations, dosing, safety, interactions, and how to better help their customers see health improvements with the use of their products.
Lastly Dr. Leah speaks at medical conferences and on panels to help educate providers and patients on the benefits of utilizing cannabis medicine in therapy. Her last speaking event was February 2022 at the annual ACA/ACVP/PPHI conference. Dr. Leah holds a Doctorate degree in Pharmacy from the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences and she will be receiving her Masters degree in Medical Cannabis Science and Therapeutics in May 2023. She is also a board member for the Pharmacists’ Cannabis Coalition of California (PCCC), the International Society of Cannabis Pharmacists (ISCPh), and a committee member for the Society of Cannabis Clinicians (SCC).
