Leigh Richardson of the Brain Performance Center and host of In Your Head with Leigh Richardson speaks with Dr. Hyla Cass to talk about CBD and its potential to replace traditional medicines.

Nationally acclaimed innovator and expert in the fields of integrative medicine, psychiatry, and addiction recovery, Dr. Cass has helped individuals to take charge of their health. One area of expertise has been helping individuals to withdraw from both psychiatric medication and substances of abuse with the aid of natural supplements. Many were from her own line of brain supplements that she and her partner/distributor recently discontinued. She has replaced them with products available from Fullscript. She is now focusing on her own line of high quality hemp oil extracts/CBD as an aid to tapering off medications and to support overall mental and physical health.

Dr. Cass appears often as a guest on national radio and television, including The Dr. Oz Show, E! Entertainment, and The View, and in national print media. She has been quoted in many national magazines, has blogged for the Huffington Post, and is the author of several popular books including: Natural Highs, 8 Weeks to Vibrant Health, Supplement your Prescription: What Your Doctor Doesn’t Know About Nutrition, The Addicted Brain and How to Break Free, and Your Amazing Itty Bitty Guide to Cannabis.

A member of the Medical Advisory Board of the Health Sciences Institute and Taste for Life Magazine, she is also Associate Editor of Total Health Magazine, she has served on the boards of California Citizens for Health and the American College for Advancement in Medicine (ACAM).

A native of Toronto, she graduated from the University of Toronto School of Medicine, interned at Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center, and completed a psychiatric residency at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center/UCLA.
