Luke Sumpter

I write about: Cannabinoids, terpenes, phytochemicals, organic cultivation

Luke Sumpter specialises in endocannabinoid system science, cannabis phytochemicals, and organic cultivation.

“As something that makes us who we are, we should all seek to learn more about the endocannabinoid system”

With a degree in Clinical Health Sciences and a passion for growing plants, Luke has worked as a professional writer at the intersection of these fields for the past 7 years. Having completed his dissertation on the emerging role of the endocannabinoid system in musculoskeletal medicine, he has a growing interest in the interactions between cannabinoids found in the plant kingdom and this universal regulator.

Luke has also spent several years researching and writing about organic cultivation methods, with a particular focus on soil biology and how caring for the interconnected web of microbes in the soil leads to superior yields and healthier plants. His background in covering health and physiology content allowed him to get to grips with scientific literature and convey complex concepts in simple terms for wider audiences.

Overall, Luke’s areas of expertise are:

  • Endocannabinoid system science
  • Cannabinoids, terpenes, and phytochemicals
  • Organic cultivation
