A bit about our speaker
Kemal Evans is a Sooke local who is well known for his music, but his understanding of Cannabis and passion for natural medicine have always been a quiet focus of his, having over 10 years experience in the medicinal marijuana field.
Growing up on the West Coast of BC on a small Gulf Island, in a family with a large focus on sustainability and organics, lead to Kemal working and learning in the garden from early childhood.
Since taking time away from his music to raise a family, he has been working under the regulation and scrutiny of the government in Canada’s medical marijuana program. His strong gardening skills are complimented by years of study and self trial with cannabis as a medicine.
Kemal is well versed in all methods of plant production and extraction. He works internationally as a professional cannabis consultant, advising on production, appropriate preparations, methods of ingestion, dosages and strains for specific conditions.
After a series of three car accidents that left him with a serious spinal injury, he was able to get himself off pain killers and anti-inflammatory drugs using only cannabis and other natural medicines. His passion is to be a healer whether through education, music or natural medicine… but preferably all of them.
Check him out on Facebook.
*** Kemal is not a doctor. He does not speak for or associate himself with Licensed Producers, Dispensaries or Health Canada. His consultation is his opinion. His opinion has been formed whilst researching most aspects of Cannabis for well over a decade. He does not offer medical advice and suggests that someone talk to a licensed physician prior to taking Cannabis. He does think that there are Cannabis experts with a lot of experience that can offer insight based on experience that no one else has.***
