Tanya Adams, DO is a board-certified physician in family medicine and lifestyle medicine and has been in solo private practice since 2003. Using evidence-based medicine, Dr. Adams incorporates lifestyle changes, often as a primary intervention, to prevent, treat, and reverse chronic diseases. Cannabinoid medicine naturally complements this highly personalized approach in Dr. Adams’ practice. Dr. Adams has been caring for patients with addiction using medication-assisted therapies and lifestyle changes since her residency and has incorporated cannabinoid medicine for both wellness and harm reduction since it was introduced in New York in 2016. Dr. Adams is a member of Minorities for Medical Marijuana and has been an active member of DFCR since our founding in 2016. Dr. Adams is an advocate of proper labeling, third-party testing and dosing, and advocates for regulation to standardize these practices at the state and federal levels. Recognizing that the intersection of the war on drugs and social determinants of health has disproportionally affected communities of color, Dr. Adams advocates for regulation that can begin to heal the harms of the past and create vibrant communities of the future.
