Growing up, Len May struggled with focus and ultimately got diagnosed with ADD. To treat this, he was put on prescription medications that greatly dulled his emotions and feelings. One day before school, Len tried cannabis for the first time. He was amazed at the focus it gave him without all the negative side effects. Going forward, Len refused to take his prescription medication and chose to smoke cannabis instead.  This resulted in his parents kicking him out of the house, as they simply saw him as a “druggie”. 

 

Through his journey, he found himself serving as the President of the Cannabis Action Network, where he met the first patient to ever be prescribed medical marijuana. Seeing it help her with her Glaucoma, and knowing it helped him with his ADD, Len became committed to educating others about the healing powers of cannabis. 

 

One thing Len noticed was that different people, taking the same product, could have vastly different results. This led him to research how DNA and our genetics play a role in our cannabis experience. Now, as a Certified Medical Cannabis Specialist in Medicinal Genomics, Len has founded EndoCanna Health, a bio-science technology company. 

 

What You’ll Learn:

  • Why genetics make a difference in the compounds you take.
  • How different cannabinoids interact with the endocannabinoid system.
  • Why low and slow dosing doesn’t work.
  • And much more!
