ABOUT THE PRESENTER
Jakub Pritz, Ph.D. has been working in the cannabis industry since 2015 as a separation operator and consultant for the production of recreational cannabis oils and other cannabis-related products. He can attest to current cannabis production methods and what the person should be aware of. His interest is to create botanical extracts of cannabis to be delivered in differing modalities depending on the effects sought and data affirmation. For example dosage control in inhalation for acute pain relief, transdermal applications for arthritic pain and oral methods for digestive symptoms. Patrons should be aware of the euphoric effects of THC and the interactions cannabinoids have with one another in varying ratios.
Prior to this, Jakub held a post-doctoral position at UCSD’s Moore’s Cancer Center where he was in charge of data management and accruing international radiation oncology centers to join the International Evaluation of Radiotherapy Technology Effectiveness in Cervical Cancer (INTERTECC). This trial required the coordination of several centers to follow strict data collection standards, quality checking of the institution capabilities and implementation of plan protocol. He received his Ph.D. in Applied Physics (concentration in Medical Physics) from the University of South Florida in 2011.
As an athlete, Jakub competed in the Patriot League as a swimmer, setting records along the way. During his graduate school years at the University of South Florida, he participated in, coached and competed with their water polo club.
