Mary joined the medical cannabis industry after a 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 writer, I knew the power of words. So I swore to my friend that I would do something about the utter injustice that means millions of people around the world are denied access to the healing potential of the cannabis plant.”
Since then her 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. For the last two years, she’s been a regular contributing writer for one of the most respected sources of cannabis education, Project CBD.
Mary is Chief Editor at CPASS (Cannabis Patient Advocacy and Support Services). As part of its nurses arm, CPASS provides education and training to nurses about how best they can support their patients who are using medical cannabis.
