Atlantic Presents ‘Five Minutes with Dr. Dina’ Hollywood’s Medical Marijuana Maven

“I was surprised that the people coming in for adult use all have medical conditions,” Dr. Dina reveals. ‘They are telling me, I don’t want to take pills anymore. I’d rather be on cannabis.”
In an exclusive new interview posted this week on Atlantic WeedBoard Dr. Dina, better known as medical marijuana consultant to the stars, says that although she’s been extolling the health benefits of CBD for years – and has seen first-hand that the majority of her patients have positive results from cannabis – it’s only recently that the general public has become more comfortable with using it.

Dr. Dina is one of the pioneers in the legal cannabis industry. Introduced to marijuana by Snoop Dog at a friend’s house as a teen in California, she later noticed how cannabis eased her stomach pain in college and began her career in medical cannabis as a way to help a friend with cancer. She has also noticed that not only her existing medical patients, but also the new customers she’s acquired after California’s legalization, are seeking the wellness benefits.  

From the start, she was a strong advocate for mainstreaming medical marijuana and worked with a physician to create a doctor’s office to provide safe access to medical cannabis. When she reconnected with Snoop and got him his first legal cannabis letter of recommendation, he gave her the nickname “Dr. Dina.” She now runs a successful dispensary and counts Snoop, 2Chainz, and Timbaland, as well as many Hollywood celebrities and other VIPs among her clients. is a new website that serves as a resource and community for all things cannabis. Atlantic WeedBoard helps guide consumers through the wellness benefits and choices of CBD products, with a focus on organically grown products where the source and quality are clearly defined. One of the unique features of Atlantic WeedBoard is originally produced video interviews with those who are at the forefront of the CBD revolution. The Dr. Dina interview is the newest video in Atlantic WeedBoard’s  “Five Minutes With…” series. Other video themes on the site include “High Profile.”
