About Colonel Philip Blair, MD, (USA Ret)
Colonel Philip Blair, MD, (US Army retired) is a Family Physician and consultant in cannabis medicine in the Pacific Northwest. He graduated from West Point 1972 and University of Miami School of Medicine 1978, trained in Family Medicine, and served as combat physician in 1991 Gulf War. Since 2014 Dr. Blair has been studying, treating, writing, and lecturing about the human body’s natural endocannabinoid system (ECS). ECS dysfunction appears closely associated with chronic illness, especially those related to inflammation and immune system conditions. His goal is to restore health and performance by enhancing the ECS through lifestyle, medications, and non-psychoactive herbs. In 2021 he coauthored Medicinal Cannabis and CBD in Mental Healthcare and in 2022 created BCPlus, an oral non-cannabis ECS activator made from beta-caryophyllene, a powerful regulator of immune overreaction, neurotransmitters, and metabolism.
