What inspired you to get involved in the cannabis industry?
I have been a cannabis advocate for many years without realizing the true science of the cannabis plant. Before I entered the industry, I had no idea that there was more than just one cannabis plant. Although marijuana fascinated me, when I learned about hemp and its 50k plus uses, I was sold. There was no way to deny that this plant was given to us to consume and use in every single way. My passion is limitless, especially as we face the end of the cannabis prohibition.

How long have you been involved in the cannabis industry?
It has been a little over a year since I have decided to make this bold step. It is not easy to be loud and proud about being an advocate, given the numerous decades that cannabis has been demonized. The truth however, is the truth. Regardless of other's opinions, including those of my conservative society, I decided that I would have to take it on as my responsibility to educate and empower others in this industry.

In that time, how has the cannabis industry grown?
With specific regards to my company, when I started a year ago we had about 8000 distributors. We are now legal in the European Union and the United States and our numbers have grown to over 40,000. I also notice that more and more people are becoming aware of what CBD oil is and it's many benefits. A year ago, nobody wanted to hear what I had to say. Now when they see me around with my cannabis gear, they are all very intrigued. This is a multibillion dollar industry estimated to be 3 times bigger than the NFL in 5 years.

What is CBD oil?
CBD stands for Cannabidiol, one of the many cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. It is usually found in high quantities in the hemp plant and low quantities in marijuana. Unlike THC, which is the dominant cannabinoid in the marijuana plant, CBD does not have any psychoactive effects. It does however, have incredible health benefits. Our body's largest self-regulating system, our Endogenous Cannabinoid System, is comprised of CB1 receptors and CB2 receptors. This system manages our mood, appetite, hormone production, sleep, and more. When one consumes cannabinoids, those receptors are activated, allowing our body to achieve homeostasis, or balance.

Have you seen the demand for CBD oil change in recent years?
The market is incredibly hot and there are hundreds of players attempting to get a piece of the pie. Our company, Medical Marijuana Inc., was the first to create and distribute CBD products. But we have come a long way since then and have developed many new products. For example, we now have a humulus oil from a non-cannabis plant, hops. Did you know that hops contains cannabinoids as well as flax, echinacea, and human breast milk? The industry is incredible and there are so many ways to go with it. Cannabis is very natural and through education we believe we can help change many lives and undo the damage of the past few generations.

What is the greatest benefit of CBD, in your opinion?
CBD is amazing in every way once you understand the science of the endogenous cannabinoid system. Everyone is affected differently as we all have different bodies and need balance in different areas. To me, what is even more fascinating is the hemp plant which can and will replace plastic, wood, cotton, petroleum and so much more! The possibilities are endless and we are so very lucky to be participating in this part of history and bringing hemp back!
