Cheryl Shuman on Canada being the global leader for Cannabis
March 1, 2018 — “When I see the possibilities of how many people can be healed (through cannabis) and have a better quality of life I am just so proud of Canada….” states Cheryl Shuman, the leading online influencer for cannabis and new InvestorIntel host in an interview with InvestorIntel’s Andy Gaudry.
Andy Gaudry: Can you tell us what inspired you to become a major advocate in the marijuana industry?
Cheryl Shuman: It was a very personal experience. That is one of the things that I think is truly life-changing about a lot of people in this industry. In my particular case I was diagnosed with cancer and also had been sexually assaulted. My doctor started sharing with me the medicinal benefits of cannabis. When you have such a life-changing, life-altering event where literally you are told you are going to die in 4 months and instead you are able to, not only live, but to be able to teach others what we have learned from clinical trials in Canada and in Israel. That is why Canada is playing such an important role in this. That is one of the reasons why I am so super excited to be up there. I mean you guys are literally ground zero for what is happening now. When I see the possibilities of how many people can be healed and have a better quality of life I am just so proud of Canada.
Andy Gaudry: Thank you very much. It is exciting times to be considered a world leader. Canada is a world leader in certain sectors, but to be number one in cannabis and to have people like yourself involved is huge. It is huge firepower and Canada needs it. The world needs it, right?
Cheryl Shuman: Yes, absolutely. That is the great thing. We have really needed tremendous leadership in this category. There is so many things. Dosing was a problem and all these other issues are problems. Legality is a problem. Canada is the leader. The most exciting thing I think for me is we are literally watching history being made. It is happening right now as we are sitting here. I cannot imagine a more exciting time to be a part of it. Not only that, when you are talking about, not only what a great time it is to heal people, but look at the economic impact that cannabis has given on multiple communities by allowing infrastructure and being able to pay all of these taxes and revenues to help rebuild schools and help our veterans who are coming over. It is life-changing for many, many reasons…to access the complete interview, click here
