ForwardGro Medical DirectorGet to know our Medical Director, Dr. Deb Kimless

What do you like best about working at ForwardGro?

The people. Everyone is smart, collaborative, and hard-working. They are interested in learning from my geeky science and medical knowledge base and I get to learn something new about the processes and procedures of all aspects of the cultivation business.

How did you get into the cannabis industry?

My mom had an adverse response from a pharmaceutical that caused her bones to spontaneously fracture. Needless to say, she was in severe pain. She couldn’t take traditional pain medications as she had a paradoxical response to them. I learned that physicians in Israel were using cannabis to treat a whole host of medical conditions including pain. Sadly, Mom died before she was able to try and see if cannabis could be helpful. But in her memory, I studied and continue to study everything I can about cannabis so that I can help inform others.

What do you like best about working in the cannabis industry? 

Cannabis medicine has revolutionized patient treatment options that are both safe and effective. As a physician, that is exciting!

What do you enjoy doing outside of work?

I am obsessed with English Premier Soccer. It is a wonderful balance of skill, grace, and athleticism. I support Chelsea, and although they are in the top 4 each and every game is a nail biter!

Is there anything else you would like people to know about you or ForwardGro?

ForwardGro cultivates high-quality cannabis and if my mom were alive today I would absolutely recommend her using any ForwardGro product.
