Former anti-drug researcher for the National Institute on Drug Abuse turned medical marijuana advocate, Dr. Michele Ross wants to make sure you take your daily dose.

You may have seen her on Big Brother, Season 11, or on the front page of tasteless tabloids, but now she’s the CEO of GreenStone Labs. What made Dr. Ross take the leap from reality TV and use her past research to promote the use of cannabis?

Having studied the effects of psychedelics, Dr. Ross sought out non-neurotoxic and nonaddictive psychedelics to help with her long-term fight with endometriosis (a painful disorder that occurs when cells from the lining of the uterus grow in other areas of the body). She came to the realization that marijuana, currently classified as a ‘harmful’ psychedelic, is what actually helped her heal from trauma. Not a heavy dosage of painkillers prescribed to her to numb the pain.

She believes everyone should use cannabis oil, or what she calls ‘vitamin weed’, on a daily basis to achieve endocannabinoid homeostasis. endocannabinoids are your brain’s natural marijuana and play a major role in overall health including the regulation of appetite, anxiety control, blood pressure, bone mass, reproduction, and motor coordination. Over the course of 10 years, Dr. Ross studied this delicate balance, proving that deficient cannabinoid levels may be the underlying cause of numerous health conditions alleviated by cannabis.

Dr. Ross on Your Daily Dose:

“Cannabis is the key to unlocking preventative medicine. It helps protect your DNA from damage so it can actually slow down the aging process. I think everyone should use cannabis oil, you should learn about it, you shouldn’t be afraid.” – Dr. Michele Ross

Since founding GreenStone Labs, Dr. Ross has provided a home for multiple cannabis-based start-ups including CannaBioscience for biomarker licensing and technology, DigiCanna for green entertainment and apps, and GreenLeaf Glow, delivering your daily dose of phytocannabinoids in juices.

She has expanded her use of psychedelics and edibles alike, and in the video below, she explains how edibles should be used and what to be weary of as you begin to dip into a healthy, pot-centric lifestlye.

Dr. Ross on How to use edibles:

What I learned from Dr. Michele Ross’ story is to channel the skills you have and the experiences life deals you (good or bad) into tools others can use to better themselves. Wrapping your head around the relentless road blocks that have been put into place in legalizing marijuana in the US and around the world really makes you think: What can I do to make cannabis a positive tool for others?

Bravo, Dr. Ross.
