And currently in addition to my role as professor I am also the CEO and president of Cannabis Science a publicly traded company on the NASDAC bulletin board (CBIS). I was studying free radicals in that I was studying radiation chemistry and DNA repair. So that gave me a foundation to understand free radicals as very important modulators, essentially of aging and age related illnesses. Which is really what cannabis does. So, by combining my understanding of life from the thermodynamic point of view, pharma-equilibrium thermodynamic point of view in conjunction with my expertise in radiation chemistry and free radicals and being a lifelong cannabis user, I have been in a very unique position to assemble those three entities into a cohesive perspective as to what life is and the fundamental role that the endocannabinoid system plays in life and how it modulates a imbalance we all suffer.
