Max Tuttleman is an investor, entrepreneur, and philanthropist who’s focused on studying and developing cannabis products. He’s currently a fellow at Thomas Jefferson University, where he studies how cannabis can be used to treat withdrawal symptoms from opiates and alcohol, and his brand Bouquet CBD recently released hemp oil ice cream.
In this episode, for the first time publicly, Max shares his story as a former opiate addict, and how a simple painkiller prescription thrust him into addiction.
He’ll take us through what it’s like to have your brain chemistry rewired by opiates, and how after getting sober, he immediately made it his mission to help others trapped by these drugs.
And, you’ll hear what he’s doing now to combat the crisis including funding city initiatives, advocating for programs, and even just going to the library and researching it himself.
