Since man could begin to record their history the one thing that has always been a part of it was the plant known as cannabis. The cannabis plant was cultivated and used for not only food, fiber, but of course for its essential cannabinoids.The primary focus of these cannabinoids was not so much for their psychotropic effects but for the medicinal benefit these cannabinoids provided for people. These cannabinoids would heal the sick and wounded and were used in treatments to heal not only the body but the mind as well. In fact during the 1800’s and very early 1900’s cannabis medicine was sold in local pharmacies, but ended when prohibition came about.We are now on the brink of the emergence of cannabinoid based medication once again, this time with clinical studies proving their medical use. These molecules will put us years ahead of where we currently are and have the ability to treat multiple unknown medical ailments such as anxiety, schizophrenia, migraines, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome and other treatment-resistant conditions. These medical ailments are caused by a condition known as Clinical Endocannabinoid Deficiency and cannabinoids are the only thing that can treat them naturally.

CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER, FOUNDER
Joshua Alb has been a scientist, activist, and entrepreneur in the Cannabis industry for nearly a decade. His collaborative research in industry and academia has begun to help provide the path for a better understanding of cannabinoids and the endocannabinoid system. After winning multiple awards for his research on the endocannabinoid system, he formed Why Not THC?, a science-based platform for Cannabis science, education, and activism. Seeing a need for education in his home state of New Jersey, he formed Cannademix, an educational event series to promote Cannabis education on college campuses.
Through this science and education, Joshua believes that we can further dismantle the War On Drugs and relentlessly advocate for social equity. He has spoken before numerous government bodies to lobby for social equity and develop an industry based on science and education.
