The TB100 list is all about acknowledging some of the most inspiring people in this industry, and the TB 100 Dialogues are about bringing these people together.
1-on-1 with Al Harrington & Dr. Ethan Russo
In this session we have retired NBA player and founder/CEO of Viola Brands Al Harrington with medical cannabis science legend Dr. Ethan Russo.
Russo is the founder/CEO of CReDO Science and spent 11 years consulting with GW Pharmaceuticals developing prescription medicines from the cannabis plant.
Russo was also the first to postulate on the “entourage effect” of cannabis (which basically means all the bioactive components of the plant work better together rather than in isolation).
Check out the inspiring clip of Harrington and Russo below:
Throughout this convo, Harrington and Russo dive into a range of topics including:
- Their cannabis stories and how they got into the industry
- The latest on cannabinoid research
- Overlooked parts of the cannabis plant
- Kids using cannabis as medicine
- Cannabis and sports
- The Brittney Griner situation
