This article is brought to you by CBD American Shaman, exploring the potential of CBD, CBG, and cannabinol to bring wellness to the world.
Dr. Robert Kaufmann, affectionately known as Dr. Bob, traversed several journeys as a medical professional before becoming a CBD evangelist. He started his career as an OBGYN and spent more than three decades as a professor of medicine at Southern Illinois State University. His work on clinical drug trials goes back to the 1970s.
Dr. Kaufmann also spent most of his career nursing a bad knee from his college baseball and basketball days. While looking for a solution that would allow him to move forward with less pain and a clear mind, he started calling CEOs of CBD companies, which is how he met CBD American Shaman CEO Vince Sanders—and how he turned his medical research background into an insatiable curiosity for learning how the human body and cannabis interact. He started as medical director, eventually becoming director of research.
