Medical Cannabis Writer
Education and Training
Medical cannabis is a confusing issue for many people, and it's not uncommon to find mistruths and inaccuracies spread by an uninformed media and even some CBD companies themselves.
I provide accurate, accessible, easy to understand education through CBD and medical cannabis workshops, as well as online training for journalists/content writers, health professionals, and complementary health therapists.
"Mary’s training is a great way to learn about CBD and its benefits without having do hours and hours of reading research. She’s also great at ‘translating’ the research for anyone to understand. It helped build my confidence around the subject, especially in recommending it to my nutrition clients." Taelor Bennet - Nutritionist
I am one of the few Europe-based writers specialising in medical cannabis and CBD, and have recently authored The CBD Book: The Essential Guide to CBD Oil (Harper Collins), due out summer 2020.
I regularly contribute to Project CBD, the Cannigma, the Kalapa Clinic, and the Huffington Post.
I combine an eye for a good story with a solid understanding of the science behind why medical cannabis is both an ancient and a 21st century answer to many illnesses.
"I came to know Mary by one and a half years ago. Since then, I have kept track of her divulgative and educational activities on the therapeutic effects of cannabis and cannabinoids, especially CBD. She successfully combines literary creativity with scientific rigour, which allows high-quality and easy-to-read pieces of work."

Mary is a very talented writer and a pleasure to work with. She takes editorial feedback well and often delivered content that far exceeded my expectations. Many of these articles went viral and got over 3000 shares. It’s hard to find a freelance writer who truly cares about the subject they are writing about.
Mary is also a great networker and knows how to develop relationships with key players and put them at their ease when conducting interviews. She has a strong network of contacts with researchers and scientists at universities around the world as well as close links to activists and campaigners who are working on the grass roots level.

We have known of Mary's work for a long time and finally were able to hire her to write an article for us recently. That article was so well written and appealing, it became the most popular article in the history of The Cannapedia. To this day, Mary's article continues to get more views, comments, and shares than any other article on our website. Mary's style is informative, yet intimate and engaging. We look forward to working with her again in the future, and highly recommend her for any writing assignment, especially those on the subject of Cannabis!

I met Mary when I was taking my first steps having Medical Cannabis as a legitimate treatment for kids and adults with Autism. Mary dived deep into the subject, doing a real research, and her work reflected the complexity, the challenges and the big hope I have for this treatment.
