Filling the Gaps in Cannabinoid Science with Purpose and Passion
The first doctor of cannabinoid science in the U.S. talks CBD, stigma, and career ambition.
In 2016, Alexandra Capano became the first person in the U.S. (and possibly the world) to receive her doctorate in medical cannabis science. She is also a nurse practitioner with a background in adolescent medicine. Now, she works as the chief science officer at Ecofibre Limited, a start-up that makes medical-grade cannabis products and researches new ways to use hemp.
