"My involvement with the field of cannabinoids, including CBD, spans close to three decades and covers a major part of my scientific career. During this period of time, I witnessed the growth of modern cannabinoid biology, starting from the discovery of its two receptors: CB1 and CB2. I was fortunate enough to start at the beginning of this new era, and participate in a number of the new discoveries. It has been a very exciting journey. I have recently accepted a position to lead the Scientific Advisory Board for CannaVest™ Laboratories, a division of CannaVest™ Corp., and the producers of the award winning PlusCBD Oil™. We must educate the world about the amazing potential CBD holds for human and animal health."
