Dr. Jonathan Rothbard, CEO, Chief Scientific Officer and co-founder of Katexco Pharmaceuticals

Dr. Jonathan Rothbard, CEO, Chief Scientific Officer and co-founder of Katexco Pharmaceuticals, a medical cannabis biopharma company based in Palo Alto, California, is this week’s guest on The Green Rush. In addition to his work in the cannabis space, Dr. Rothbard works in the neurology department at Stanford University where he’s also worked in the departments of chemistry and rheumatology. Dr. Rothbard is also the founder of Amylin, which was eventually sold to Bristol-Myers Squibb.

Dr. Rothbard is spearheading the second generation of medical cannabis, where cannabinoids like CBD and THC will be synthesized in labs instead of extracted from plants grown on farms. His mission is to put CBD through clinical trials to prove scientifically that it can be an effective medical treatment in conjunction with other compounds and to patent those compounds and submit them to the FDA for approval as pharmaceuticals.

In addition to our regular hosts Lewis and Anne, we also has a special guest, KCSA colleague Caitlin Kasunich, join us for this week’s conversation.

For listeners interested in the growth of medicinal cannabis, science and the developing relationship between the traditional pharma space and cannabis, this interview is for you! So don’t sit back, lean forward and enjoy!

Subsequently, he was head of the Molecular Immunology Laboratory at the Imperial Cancer Research Fund in London where he first collaborated with Prof. Sir Marc Feldman (1990). He left academia to help establish ImmuLogic in Palo Alto, and founding Amylin in San Diego. Amylin, which he founded in 1987, was a pharmaceuticals company engaged in the discovery, development and commercialization of drugs relating to diseases including obesity and diabetes.

Justin Zaremba, Lead Reporter for NJ Cannabis Insider

Justin Zaremba is the lead report for NJ Cannabis Insider from NJ Advance Media, a trade publication dedicated to covering the New Jersey cannabis industry, is this week’s guest on The Green Rush. As part of the NJ Advance Media family, Justin’s work has been published across a number of outlets  including NJ.com and The Star-Ledger, New Jersey’s largest daily newspaper.

As the top cannabis reporter in the state, Justin has been closely following and chronicling the New Jersey legislature’s efforts to legalize adult-use cannabis in the state which, up until the beginning of April, seemed like an inevitability. Now that the vote on the referendum has been delayed, Justin gives our hosts Lewis and Anne the inside information on what led to the hold up around the vote, the current state of NJ’s medical cannabis program and how it’s woefully under-serving its patients and how NJ is looking at states like Nevada and California for guidance in graduating their medicinal program into a fully-operational recreational market.

For listeners keen on following the expansion of the cannabis market to the East Coast, this interview is filled with facts and information that shows just how differently states in the East operate compared to their counterparts in the West. So don’t sit back, lean forward and enjoy!

Jane West – Co-Founder and CEO of Cannabis Lifestyle Brand Jane West

Jane West, Co-Founder and CEO of the cannabis lifestyle brand Jane West and one of the most influential women in the industry, is this week’s guest on The Green Rush. Following her entry into the space in 2014 following legalization in Colorado, Jane quickly went on to help found the cannabis networking organization Women Grow, and in 2016, Inc. magazine named her “the most widely recognized female personality in cannabis.” In an industry dominated by major players vying for space in an increasingly crowded marketplace, Jane is unique in that she’s built a well-recognized brand and social following around her name, likeness, and her style.

With Lewis and Anne together again back behind the microphone, they chat with Jane about her well-documented transition into the cannabis space, the challenges she faced as an entrepreneur, the time one of her events was raided by a SWAT team, how the US markets differ from the growing European markets and her disappointment in the lack of small business success in cannabis.

Enjoy!

At Jane West, she develops cannabis accessories and home goods that  invite women to experience the benefits of cannabis and take part in the legal lifestyle. West is also the founder of Women Grow, the cannabis industry’s  largest professional networking organization.

Revisiting Our Conversation with Congressman Earl Blumenauer

This week we experienced some technical issues so we are revisiting one of our more recent favorite episodes with Representative Earl Blumenauer, a House Democrat from Oregon.  Congressman Blumenauer has represented Oregon as a Congressman for more than 20 years and has been a pivotal player in US legalization since the beginning. He also is one of the founders and co-chairs of the Congressional Cannabis Caucus, a bipartisan Caucus for members of the U.S. House of Representatives to discuss, learn, and work together to establish a better and more rational approach to federal cannabis policy.

With 18+ Democrats vying for the Democratic Presidential nomination this primary election cycle, we wanted to revisit this conversation to see how influential leaders like Congressman Blumenauer envision the federal government moving forward with cannabis legalization.

Policy wonks, you’re in for a treat – lean in and enjoy!

About Congressman Blumenauer

A lifelong resident of Portland, Oregon, Congressman Earl Blumenauer (OR-3) has devoted his entire career to public service. While still a student at Lewis and Clark College, he spearheaded the effort to lower the voting age both in Oregon and at the national level. He was elected to the Oregon Legislature in 1972, where he served three terms and Chaired the House Education and Revenue Committee in 1977-78. In 1978, he was elected to the Multnomah County Commission, where he served for eight years before being elected to the Portland City Council in 1986. There, his 10-year tenure as the Commissioner of Public Works demonstrated his leadership on the innovative accomplishments in transportation, planning, environmental programs and public participation that have helped Portland earn an international reputation as one of America’s most livable cities.

Elected to the US House of Representatives in 1996, Mr. Blumenauer has created a unique role as Congress’ chief spokesperson for Livable Communities: places where people are safe, healthy and economically secure.  From 1996 to 2007, he served on the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, where he was a strong advocate for federal policies that address transportation alternatives, provide housing choices, support sustainable economies and improve the environment. He was a member of the Foreign Affairs Committee from 2001 to 2007, and vice-chair of the Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming from 2007 to 2010.  He is currently a member of the Ways and Means Committee and the subcommittees on Health, Oversight, and Tax Policy. Congressman Blumenauer’s academic training includes undergraduate and law degrees from Lewis and Clark College in Portland.

Evan Eneman, CEO of MGO-ELLO Alliance, is this week’s guest on The Green Rush.

With both Anne and Nick away for this week’s conversation, Lewis solicited the help of Aaron Smith, former CNN cannabis reporter and now a member of the KCSA team, to join him for this interview.

Additionally, Evan touches on the growth of the East Coast market and which state he thinks will transition to adult use first – New York or New Jersey?

Enjoy!

Hosted by 4Front President Kris Krane and joined by John Lindsay Phillips from RLM PR, Lewis participated in a rollicking conversation about the communications, challenges and media/PR opportunities present in the cannabis industry.

The conversation ranged from how working with cannabis companies differs from working with other business clients, the lack of beat reporters at top tier publications dedicated to the cannabis space and how the PR landscape has evolved over the past half decade when it comes to cannabis coverage. The panel also included a Q&A session with members of the audience asking questions of Lewis and John.

Subbing in on hosting duties for Lewis this week is our old pal Nick Opich who joins Anne to chat with Doug and Jigar.

In addition, our hosts touch on NorCal’s potential plans to go public, how Doug and Jigar found each other, and the evolving California cannabis delivery landscape. To top things off, Doug and Jigar let us in what they would tell California Governor Gavin Newsom if they get the chance to bend his ear about the California cannabis industry.    

Sit back and enjoy!

Doug Cortina, CEO, brings a strong background of hands on business and entrepreneurial experience to NorCal Cannabis. Doug has successfully led the planning, development and execution of three cannabis projects in the Bay Area.

His depth of knowledge of the rich history of California cannabis, regulation, cultivation, and sales in a compliant marketplace provides a distinct advantage to achieving NCC’s business objectives.  An experienced entrepreneur, Mr. Patel has also been the founder of a successful Sonoma County winery, Jigar Wines. As President of NorCal Cannabis Company, Mr. Patel is responsible for oversight of all operations.
