STUDYING THE THERAPEUTIC PROMISE OF CANNABIS MEDICINE – HASH IT OUT W/ EMMA CHASEN OF EMINENT
Ep. 34 Studying the Therapeutic Promise of Cannabis Medicine
In this episode, RJ Balde talked to Emma Chasen of Eminent Consulting about guiding and influencing entrepreneurs in the emerging cannabis industry, and the delicacies of social responsibility and marketing, and more.
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 chemotypes to determine effect. She began her career at Farma as a budtender and was quickly promoted to General Manager and eventually to Director of Education. In this role she was able to focus on educational efforts and create a robust training curriculum that focused on cannabis science, product knowledge and empathetic patient care.
Emma now co-owns and operates Eminent Consulting, a cannabis consulting business that offers educational training programs for cannabis industry professionals and lay enthusiasts. Emma continues to seek ways to spread cannabis education through consulting, writing, speaking and teaching.
