We all have a personal story of why cannabis has such a profound impact on our lives. My story began decades ago when I first became fascinated with plant medicine and the interactions the active molecules had within human physiology.
I abhorred school, so at age seventeen I joined the U.S. Armed Forces where I operated as a Chinese linguist during my enlistment. Once out of the military, I spent years trying to find my place in the world. I could not however, ignore the still, quiet voice inside that beckoned me to explore this fascination.
This precipitated my long journey into the world of science.
Following my PhD in small molecule chemistry, I conducted research at Stanford as a post- doctoral fellow, where I further honed my skills as a scientist and molecular magician. Upon leaving my tenure at Stanford, I couldn’t fathom going to work for Big Pharma. Serendipitously, I ended up on a medical cannabis farm on the Navarro Ridge in Mendocino for the season. This experience drastically altered the course of my life and re-ignited in me a latent obsession for plant medicine.
I was inspired by this miraculous plant and became myopic in my pursuit to bring this medicine to the world. It was immediately apparent that the industry was in dire need of standardized, innovative medicine of the highest quality, hence Level was born.
Our mission is to create cannabis products that empower people to live healthier, happier, and more enjoyable lives.
Level blends produces an array of high-quality cannabis products expertly crafted to achieve desired feeling states – relaxation, energy, etc, . We hold deep respect for the cannabis plant, and upholding its integrity is one of our guiding values. To this end, we offer our line of cannabis products completely free of pesticides and additives.
Level sources its oils from flowers from cannabis strains that you rarely see in dispensaries. These strains are high in cannabinoids like CBD, CBG, and THCV which offer different effects from THC. Level scientists apply advanced techniques to unlock the plant’s many benefits and magic.
Thank you for letting me bring my science and magic to you! It is created from lots of hard work and even more love.
