Ed Rosenthal is recognized worldwide as a leading authority on marijuana. In almost 40 years as America’s “Guru of Ganjasm” he has written or edited more than two dozen books about marijuana cultivation and social policy that cumulatively have sold over two million copies. His first book is the only title on marijuana cultivation to be reviewed by the New York Time’s Book Review and his latest release, Marijuana Grower’s Handbook has become the definitive marijuana cultivation resource and official course book for Oaksterdam University, the leading trade school for the cannabis industry. After almost three decades, his Ask Ed column continues to answer questions on all matters of marijuana from readers around the world.
Chip’s entrepreneurial career began after a very successful post-college corporate career that includeed startup’s in retail, healthcare, and natural products. In late 2013 Chip and his wife Cynthia sold their startup home care business and launched the first brick and mortar retail e-cigarette franchise, Palm Beach Vapors which led to research and discoveries in how other plants beside cannabis could modulate the endocannabinoid system. This research led to the founding of GnuPharma where Chip leads R&D development.
The company was featured in Entrepreneur Magazine in the February 2015 issue. The couple also founded and launched a 501c4 non-profit called Oklahomans For Health which is the founder and leader of the medical marijuana initiatives in Oklahoma. Chip authored State Question 788 which went on to become Oklahoma’s Medical Marijuana law and has been deeply involved with State lawmakers to build the regulations under the law.
Chip is a recognized and sought out speaker and educator on the endocannabinoid system and also speaks about regulations needed for the medical marijuana and CBD industries.
