A Mission To Educate People On The Science Behind Cannabis
Today on High On Healthy our host is joined by Cannabis Educator & Industry Consultant, Emma Chasen. Emma has a mission to educate people on the science behind cannabis so that they may take charge of their own healing. After graduating from Brown University in 2014 with a degree in Medicinal Plant Research, Emma went on to coordinate Clinical Oncology trials with the Brown University Oncology Research Group. When her supervisor refused a cannabis trial in favor of another expensive pharmaceutical drug, Emma quit and headed across the country to Portland, OR.
She found her way to Farma, the popular Portland dispensary that takes a more scientific approach to cannabis; rejecting the Indica/Sativa binary and instead focusing on chemo types to determine effect. She began her career at Farma as a bud-tender and was quickly promoted to General Manager after only a few months. She oversaw the operations of the shop and continued to uphold the pillars of esteemed customer service and cannabis science education during the rocky regulatory transition from OHA to OLCC governance.
