Everyone has a story of how they ended up working in the medical cannabis industry.


My journey started with the terminal diagnosis of pancreatic cancer of a dear friend's mother. In the last couple of month's of her life she'd been given cannabis oil, which did something that morphine could not. It allowed her to see out her final weeks with almost no pain and with complete lucidity. In short, she was given the chance to die with dignity.

As a journalist I knew the power of words. So I swore to my friend that I would do something about the utter unjustness that means millions of people around the world are denied access to the healing potential of the cannabis plant.


Fast forward a few weeks and I found myself at a hemp fair in Seville where I live in Spain. A week later I was hired as a full time writer for Endoca, a Danish CBD company. Since then my life has been dedicated to educating the world about cannabis, CBD and the endocannabinoid system through original, well-researched, concisely written, and easily digestible articles.

This summer (2020), my position as one of the most respected Europe-based medical cannabis writers will be cemented by the publication of my book, 'The CBD Book: The Essential Guide to CBD Oil' (Harper Collins), which is available to preorder.
