ABOUT

With a decade of experience in the legal cannabis industry,

Now I put my experience to work helping companies and individuals understand the science, avoid common pitfalls, and optimize for the modern cannabis marketplace. Learn more.

SPEAKING

Inspiring and challenging the cannabis industry

RECENT TOPICS:

THE FUTURE OF CANNABIS FORMULATION

Does more advanced tech mean better products?​ What happens when the big players in food and consumer processed goods enter the marketplace? The juxtaposition of legacy and whole-plant approaches with modern tech can be a clash--or an opportunity.

ETHICAL CONSUMPTION

The legal gray-area that CBD and THC occupy is rife with bad actors and passive corruption. Here's how to choose the right producers and products in a poorly-regulated market.

SEX & CANNABIS IN THE #METOO ERA

The #metoo movement sparked a massive cultural conversation about consent, and particularly what it means in the context of intoxication from alcohol. That conversation is fraught, complicated, and contentious, but it is happening. Unfortunately, it is not happening in the cannabis world. As more sexuality-oriented cannabis products are developed, it is our responsibility to foster a shared consent culture for cannabis.

WORKSHOPS

Accessible learning for individuals and teams

POPULAR TOPICS:

CANNABIS 101 SERIES

A three-part introduction to the history, biology, and variety of modern cannabis​ for both the THC and CBD markets. Accessible and down-to-earth, this series is appropriate for the complete beginner as well as the more seasoned, but is particularly useful for product development teams just entering the cannabis landscape.

SEX & CANNABIS

My most popular workshop! Combining sex and weed is certainly nothing new, but the recent wave of legalization has relaxed the stigma around cannabis and vastly expanded the options for incorporating it into your love life. Learn the science behind cannabis' unique ability to enhance sex, and how to choose the best strains, edibles, sublinguals, and topicals for playtime.

CHOOSING THE RIGHT PRODUCT

Whether you are after full spectrum or CBD-only, the modern cannabis marketplace can be an overwhelming place, especially for the beginner. Let me help you parse the jargon, understand the labels, and identify the consumption methods and ingredients that are right for your needs. Available as group instruction or individual consultation.
