My Story

Hi. My name is Anita, and I believe Cannabis is the missing link to countless undocumented medical breakthroughs. I’m passionate about researching, testing, and bringing my findings and patient testimonials to the forefront of medical research.

I get to wake up in the morning to spread the good news about Cannabis. As the founder and CEO of CBD Genie and as one of Texas leading advocates for Cannabis Treatment Therapy, I am here to shout it from the rooftops: Cannabis saves lives! It saved mine!

As an Air Force veteran, a Texas Tech alum with a B.S. in Cell and Molecular Biology with a minor in Chemistry and Spanish, certified Microbiology Technologist, certified Essential Oils Coach, and scientist I had no idea that one day I would wake up to excruciating pain and become a prisoner to my own bowels. I have had symptoms of Ulcerative Colitis for the past decade, but Cannabis has significantly changed how I handle the day-to-day pain.

Having been a patient myself, I can attest first hand that the painful, bloody mess that took me to the emergency room time and time again sucked the life right out of me. Not only was I already in pain, but the amount of needles poked and prodded into my skin at the hospital only made matters worse. The intravenous medications pumped into me left my arms sore and bruised and collapsed several veins. The chronic pain from Ulcerative Colitis nearly destroyed my social life, my career, my relationships, and if it weren’t for Cannabis (and everyone who brought this alternative to me) I wouldn’t be living the life I live today!

As one of the world’s leading advocates for Cannabis, I have done my due diligence. I’ve attended nationwide summits and scientific conferences, spoken with other luminaries in the field, and engaged in my own scientific studies, and I want to share that knowledge I have earned and hopefully inspire others to do the same.

The ailment that broke me down is now my strength, and I feel the healing power of sharing the science behind my cannabis testimony. I want to help others by getting involved! At CBD Genie, I am excited to have finally found my life calling, using my lab knowledge, scientific research and first-hand experience to demonstrate how Cannabis can help your body on its “Pursuit of Balance.”

CBD Genie’s Statement on Veterans

I am a proud veteran of the United States Air Force, having served with honor for over 8 years. It is my wish that CBD Genie affords veterans and veteran’s groups every courtesy we can muster. Please know that veterans issues are my issues as well, and it is my honor to serve other veterans in whatever way I can.

Public Speaking

My life was changed by cannabis. Instead of brutal medical bills and days lost to convalescence, I now have a passion to share the power of my testimony, a drive to advocate increased legal tolerance for cannabis, and excitement about the array of possibilities for derivative treatments. As part of my mission to educate the public about cannabis, I have been speaking at events and conferences receptive to my message all over Texas, from Amarillo to Rio Grand Valley, to Beaumont and the Capitol in my home town Austin TX. I am interested in speaking to other sufferers of chronic pain, especially veterans’ groups. If you would like to schedule an appearance, please contact me at anita@thecbdgenie.com. Thank you.
