Dr. Luis Enrique R. Liogier-Weyback

President and Founder of Doctor Jane

Luis Enrique R. Liogier-Weyback, M.D., serves as Chair of the Board of Editors of the Journal of
Cannabinoid Medicine and is the President and Founder of Doctor Jane, South Florida’s most
professional and discreet concierge medical cannabis practice. As a United States Navy veteran and
a neurosurgery-trained physician, Dr. Weyback has made it his mission to bring education and
evidence- based personalized therapy into his patients’ homes. As a member of the Brigade of
Midshipmen of the United States Naval Academy, Dr. Weyback played Division-I men’s ice hockey
as a highly recruited defenseman. He has played a total of 22 years of high-level competitive ice
hockey. Dr. Weyback is passionate about ensuring that first responders and veterans have access to
the benefits of medical cannabis they can use to manage the psychological and physical conditions
that disproportionately affect them.
Given his extensive personal and professional experience with traumatic brain injury, he decided to
concentrate on injury prevention and recovery. When his wife became ill necessitating a change in
career from neurosurgery, Dr. Weyback transitioned to wellness and preventative medicine. That
was when he decided that this burgeoning therapy should be more easily accessible to a wider
range of patients. Maintaining the core values of evidence-based treatment and respect for his
patients, he founded Doctor Jane with the mission of providing high-quality, individualized and safe
medical cannabis therapy to the patients that need it most.
Dr. Weyback has co-authored a number of peer-reviewed medical articles, including "The Aging
Brain: The Significance of the Default Mode Network (DMN) in Neurological and Neuropsychiatric
Disorders: A Review,” in the Yale Journal of Biology and Medicine; “Caffeine as Treatment for
Alzheimer’s Disease: A Review,” in the Journal of Caffeine Research; and “The Positive Correlation
Between Migraine and Vertigo: A Review,” in The Egyptian Journal of Otolaryngology.” Dr. Weyback
holds dual Bachelor of Science degrees in Chemistry and Biology and a Post-Baccalaureate in
Medical Sciences from the University of Pennsylvania. He obtained his Doctor of Medicine from
Eastern Virginia Medical School in 2014, received his residency training at the Medical University of
South Carolina, and is a member of the Congress of Neurological Surgeons, American Association of
Neurological Surgeons, North American Spine Society, and the Florida Medical Association.
Currently, he is one of the first physicians in the world pursuing a Master of Science degree in
Medical Cannabis Science and Therapeutics from the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy.
Additionally, he is an Athlete Ambassador for Athletes for Care, a nonprofit organization started by
and for professional, Olympic, and collegiate level athletes with a focus on advocacy on traumatic
brain injury and cannabis use as a medical therapy. Dr. Weyback currently resides in Palm Beach
County, FL with his wife, Katie Liogier-Weyback, B.S., R.N., and their daughter.
