    • CEO and C0-Founder, ANSHI
        As a CEO, I bring executive skills and a proven track record of building brands through driving pipeline and revenue in rapidly expanding software companies. As a mom, I went into a kitchen, not a lab, to discover better and quicker tools to promote healing. ANSHI was born from necessity, at the hospital bedside of my six year old daughter Raegan. Those roots are what defines the company and our vision.
        I've been a 'CannaMom' since my daughter was 2. We treat Raegans genetic condition Rett Syndrome with the full plant and that along with diet and other natural approaches has fended off major chronic decline even through extreme illness and severe (and separately caused) epilepsy.

To better understand how the use of cannabis can treat and improve the quality of life for her children and others with seizure disorders and ASD.

          In this panel discussion, parents of medically compromised children using cannabis discuss their experiences of what led them to start cannabis therapy, what delivery methods they currently use and what improvements have been observed. Bioavailability and research will also be briefly discussed.

          Learning Objectives: 

          1. The goal of using medical cannabis is most often to improve quality of life, not to cure
          2. Besides finding the proper cannabis profile and dosing, finding the best delivery method for each patient is one of the most important objectives
