Dr. Oludare Odumosu,Chief Scientific Officer/EVP Pharmaceutical Division for Pennsylvania-based Ilera Healthcare, is this week’s guest on the Green Rush! Dr. Odumosu has an extensive scientific and medical background with a PhD. in biochemistry as well as having shepherded the development of pharmaceuticals through FDA approval and the marketing that occurs afterwards. A native of Nigeria, it’s worth mentioning that Dr. Odumosu is one of a growing number of African-Americans who are taking on leadership roles to shape the cannabis industry.
In this week’s conversation, our hosts and Oludare touch on a number of fascinating subjects including social justice reform; Dr. Odumosu’s introduction to cannabis and why he credits the plant with saving his life; what drove him to make the jump from the world of academia to cannabis; how Dr. Odumosu’s past work developing pain meds has informed his work with cannabis; and what kind of study he would commission on cannabis if he worked at the FDA.
We really enjoyed this informative and fun discussion with Dr. Odumosu and this conversation is sure to be of interest to all of our listeners interested in leanring more about the medicinal benefits of cannabis.
