This week’s episode may be considered risqué to some. Jill Devine’s hope is to use this platform to talk about the positive uses of medical marijuana and also provide education to those who would like to learn more about medical marijuana. Please understand this episode is intended to be an educational piece. Always seek the advice of a physician with any questions regarding a medical condition.
Jill invited Dr. Jamila Owens-Todd’s on the podcast to discuss medical marijuana. Dr. Jamila Owens-Todd’s career path started with studying the sciences at the University of Missouri-Saint Louis. Jamila completed her university education by obtaining Bachelor degrees in both, Chemistry and French. As a Chemist, she has worked for private industry; government, at the Food and Drug Administration and within the pharmaceutical industry, at a top pharmaceutical company in the Research and Development Department. As a Chemist, she worked with many innovations in pharmaceuticals and understands the method-of-action of plant medicines. Jamila has had significant experience working with controlled substances and understands the care and compliance with dispensing such medicines. Jamila is currently a member of the Minority Cannabis Business Association. She has maintained a successful herbal dispensary in her practice, dispensing CBD and hemp related products. Jamila has recently started formulating her very own hemp/CBD tinctures, using high-quality, Colorado-grown hemp. As an educator, continuing education has been a consistent principle within her practice and provides for her continued knowledge, growth and healing capabilities. Further training has been pursued in many areas of herbal medicine and specifically with The Medical Cannabis Institute (TMCI), ECS Therapeutics and in extensive Integrative Cannabis Modules for Practitioners. She holds multiple cannabis education trainings. Jamila is also Certified and Trained to work in a Medical Cannabis Dispensary.
She has joined the BeLeaf Medical team, which is the FIRST vertically integrated medical cannabis company with cultivation, manufacturing, and dispensing locations open and operating. Phytos, their manufacturing brand, passed an extensive series of required inspections from the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services to commence on their first of two awarded manufacturing licenses granted earlier this year. Phytos is proud to have a female-led team of strong, diverse women managed by Chief Science Officer Dr. Stephanie Cernicek, a PhD Chemist, Research and Development Manager, Dr. Jamila Owens-Todd, ND and Partner Mitch Meyers. BeLeaf Medical is home to SWADE dispensaries, which is 100% focused on education and health: We firmly believe that education is what will transform America’s relationship with cannabis. That’s why we lead with education in everything we do. From the evidence-based science that informs our product development, to our informative approach to customer care at our dispensaries, our goal is to increase the public’s awareness of the ways cannabis can both serve and soothe us.
Jill would like to acknowledge and recognize the hard work moms put in on the daily. It can be a thankless job at times, and Jill wants these moms to know their worth, so she created the Supermom Shoutout, brought to you by Addy’s Way (https://addysway.com/). Each recipient will receive a custom designed Supermom t-shirt from Addy’s Way, in addition to the Shoutout. This week’s Supermom Shoutout goes to Angie of St. Louis, MO. Her husband, Josh, nominated her and said:
Angie is a Supermom and a half! She grinds every day, especially when she was traveling. She has to take care of actual children (3 to be exact) and then is a wonderful care giver to a sometimes-needy husband. She’s a successful corporate gal and like I said, grinds every day.
Angie – YOU are seen and YOU are supported!
To nominate a Supermom (or you can nominate yourself) email [email protected]. Submit the name of the Supermom, where they’re from, and a brief description as to why Jill should shout out this particular Supermom.
