"The efficacy of cannabis is irrefutable and we’re bringing the positive impacts for mature adults to light."
- Dr. Deborah Malka, MD

Deborah Malka M.D., Ph.D., has been a board-certified specialist in Integrative Holistic Medicine, and has made it a priority to support patient empowerment and alternative medicine throughout her career. She has specialized in cannabis medical consultations for the past 12 years, consulting with over 30,000 patients to date. Her private practice, CANNABIS PLUS (, provides medical marijuana and natural health consulting for a national client base via phone or telemedicine appointments. Dr. Malka uses knowledge-based and intuitive skills to offer each patient advice on how best to use their medicine during each visit. She provides advice not only concerning cannabis, but the incorporation of other herbs, nutrition, and lifestyle adjustments to create a program with reduced reliance on pharmaceuticals. Many patients are successful at reducing opiate dosage, resulting in improved pain management and vitality. She is an expert on the clinical use of cannabis as medicine, and works with all ages, from children with seizure disorders or ADD, to treating seniors in retirement communities.

She is both a clinician and an educator in this specialty. She has previously served as the medical director for a group of clinics providing medical marijuana evaluations in California, training 50 physicians and serving over 300,000 patients. She was the faculty director of the first comprehensive online continuing medical education course in Clinical Cannabinoid Medicine, and continues to provide quality medical education about cannabis to multiple audiences ranging from physicians to patients to dispensaries.

Prior to clinical practice, Dr. Malka completed her Ph.D. in Human Genetics from Columbia University, and studied both natural and traditional medicine, with degrees from the University of New Mexico School of Medicine and the Santa Fe College of Natural Medicine. The field of cannabis medicine allows her to integrate her expertise in allopathic medicine, herbal medicine, research, education and patient care. It is her hope that patients will have the experience of finding alternatives to dependence on pharmaceuticals and discover the benefits of choosing healthier options, including this most powerful herbal medicine, cannabis.
