Rethinking Humanity's Relationship with Cannabis | Derek Thomas | TEDxBocaRaton


NOTE FROM TED: Please do not look to this talk for medical advice. We’ve flagged this talk, which was filmed at an independent TEDx event, because it appears to fall outside TEDx’s content guidelines. While cannabis and CBD are an emerging field of study, their associated health effects remain inconclusive and unsupported by current scientific evidence. TEDx events are independently organized by volunteers. The guidelines we give organizers are described in more detail here: http://storage.ted.com/tedx/manuals/tedx_content_guidelines.pdf

Since the dawn of civilization, cannabis has been a provider for humanity. Its numerous uses and versatility intimately connected us to it. As humankind flourished through the ages, we discovered new uses that only deepened that connection. Roughly one hundred years ago, an abrupt and profound shift occurred that resulted in a global shunning of the plant. Mankind forgot how beneficial cannabis is and created false stigma’s that are burned in our collective minds. Derek Thomas is vice president of Business Development at Veritas Farms, Inc (OTCQB: VFRM). Veritas Farms is a publicly traded company headquartered in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. It focuses on producing superior quality full-spectrum hemp oils and extracts made on its farm in Pueblo, Colorado. Thomas’ duties include developing and executing the company’s sales and marketing plans, advancing new product development, establishing strategic partnerships and acting as the corporate spokesperson. Before joining Veritas Farms, Thomas consulted for numerous cannabis firms including Technical420, Blue Moon Advisors, Hemp Inc., and Stonebridge Partners. His work spanned many verticals within cannabis including textiles, bioplastics, fundraising, agriculture, manufacturing, decortication, and sales and marketing. Prior to consulting, Thomas co-founded and acted as chief operating officer of Hemp Blue ― a premium hemp-based apparel company that focused on utilizing American grown hemp.
