In episode 34, I’m very pleased to present Deborah Caldwell, who is the co-founder, along with her surfer-dude husband Bruce, of Topicanna Sun Grown, a very special medical cannabis topical company out of San Luis Obisbo, California. Deborah holds a degree in Kinesiology from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, with a long history of working with athletes and patients. 17 years ago, she became very interested in creating topicals made out of herbs and in 2001 she created a topical formula to help patients manage inflammation between sessions. Thousands of batches later in 2011, she added cannabis to her amazing topicals thus elevating her Synergy Formula to its current glory. Up to now, topicals have been existing in the shadow of their sexier smoke-able and edible counter-parts. But all that is about to change big-time with the legalization of adult-use cannabis. In this interview Deborah answers the following questions: Will you tell us the story of how you became interested in topicals leading to you creating Topicanna Sun Grown. Tell us about your topicals and why they are so unique. How many products do you have? Are there any psychoactive properties to your topicals? So how do topicals work? What conditions can topicals treat? And how effective are they? How have your topicals been received from within the medical community? How do you determine the proper dosing when using topicals? How safe are topicals? How have your topicals been received from within the cannabis industry? Where are your products available? How do you think that the roll-out of California’s legal adult use in 2018 will affect your business?
