In this episode of The Feels, Dr. Jamila Owens-Todd shares how her love of being in a lab has led her to consulting on cannabis science for countless companies — both her own and others. Dr. Owens-Todd started the Meridian Institute for Naturopathic Therapies to meld her passions for plant medicine and chemistry while encouraging people to get involved in their own healing, right in their very own kitchens. Now, she is also an Adjunct Professor at SLU’s Cannabis and Science Operations programs, plus is the Chief Science Officer at MiDose.
