Speaker Bio
Dr. Brown is a licensed pharmacist in New York State and is the editor-in-chief of CannaBuff magazine and CannabisQuestions.Health. He has authored numerous peer-reviewed articles and abstracts on medical cannabis. He graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University at Buffalo in 2018. During pharmacy school, Geoff completed training at the Mayo Clinic where he developed an early interest in how pharmacists can help patients improve their utilization of natural medicines. In his initial work at UB, he conducted new research evaluating patient-reported pain and quality of life outcomes associated with the use of medical cannabis products available through NY’s Medical Program. This work was featured by NORML and has been widely cited as one of the first clinical studies in the U.S. suggesting medical cannabis may reduce opioid dose requirements. This eventually led Geoff to his current practice at a dispensary in Buffalo where he sees patients with a range of conditions from Multiple Sclerosis and epilepsy, to chronic pain, and PTSD.
CannaBuff magazine, is a quarterly print publication that promotes new cannabis and adjacent businesses in Western New York. Educational and professional in its scope, CannaBuff magazine discusses a broad range of legal, medical, and business issues facing New Yorkers and is available for free at over 300 locations, or by mail or e-mail.
