I began working in greenhouses at the age of 12 years old. I have been cultivating cannabis for many many years and have always viewed it as medicine. Perhaps it the American Indian in me or my opinion that cannabis is one of Gods many gifts hes given to us. I sustained a severe back injury as the result of an assault many years ago and became dependent on opiates for several years loosing a large part of my quality of life’s due rendering me unable to work. My doctor referred me to a pain management clinic and a naturopathic doctor who informed me of CBD and I began a 5 year search to find CBD genetics that ultimately helped me shed that dependency. In doing so, we discovered an extremely high CBD strain that took 1st place Overall high CBD in a cannabis contest with Cannatonic X at 22.5% CBD in the 2011 Hightimes Medical Cup. This record holds true as the highest ever tested to this day. Cannabis has not only saved my life from opiates but saved my mothers life as a stroke victim. I co operate the Cannabiotix CBD oil program and a pediatric cannabis therapy program which works with children with severe epilepsy, Dravets syndrome and other life threatening and debilitating conditions. I am grateful for the ability to cultivate cannabis as well as helping create life changing medicine and I look forward to participating in the breeding and creation of specialized cannabis strains and cannabinoid profiles that will change the medical world forever.
