Emma Chasen has a mission to educate people on the science of Cannabis so that they may take charge of their own healing. After graduating from Brown University in 2014 with a degree in Medicinal Plant Research, Emma went on to coordinate Clinical Oncology Research Group. When her supervisor refused a Cannabis trial in favor of another expensive pharmaceutical drug. Emma quit and headed across the country to Portland, OR.
She found her way to Farma, the popular Portland dispensary that takes a more scientific approach to Cannabis; rejecting the Indica/Sativa binary and instead focusing on chemotypes to determine effect. She began her career at Farma as a budtender and was quickly promoted to General Manager after only a few months. She oversaw the operations of the shop and continued to uphold the pillars of esteemed customer service and cannabis education during the rocky regulatory transition from OHA to OLCC governance.
Emma is now a cannabis industry consultant and helps brands develop educational marketing collateral and educational program to further elevate their brand presence in a competitive industry. She also helps cannabis businesses with business organization and creation of internal on boarding programs to set them up for success in the competitive adult use market. Emma continues to seek ways to spread cannabis education through consulting, writing, speaking and teaching.
