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

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.

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.
