Earlier this September, she was moderating the Docs and Jocks panel at the 2018 Cannabis Science Conference, where she discussed the medicinal benefits of cannabis in sports with a group of former professional athletes. In Marijuana for Medical Professionals Conferenceaddition to her solo presentation at this year’s Marijuana for Medicinal Professionals Conference, Dr. Uma Dhanabalan will also be moderating a panel on athletes and cannabis with a group of former professional NFL and NHL athletes.

Antonio is a sponsored cannabis athlete and the Co-Owner of Marijuana Fitness Nutrition, which encourages living a healthy and active lifestyle while promoting marijuana’s many benefits. A lifelong writer, with 15+ years of cannabis experience, he moved to Colorado in 2015, from Columbia, MO. It is here, in the incredible state of Colorado, where he’s found who he truly is. He earned his B.A. in Psychology at Columbia College while quickly climbing the ladder of bank management, before he and his wife decided to leave it all behind, to create more meaningful lives. He and his wife now advocate for their biggest passions, marijuana, fitness, and nutrition. Even when not advocating for the cause, Antonio spends his life orbiting around these three topics. If not in the gym, or enjoying Colorado’s many outdoor activities, he’s in the kitchen fueling organically for his next activity, all while consuming cannabis. On the rare chance you can catch him lounging, it will be on his plush couch, with his wife and two cats, watching Netflix through a veil of smoke.
