GrowBLOX Sciences, Inc., a.k.a. GB Sciences (GBLX), a cannabinoid therapy research and development firm, has appointed Peter Emerson to serve as the senior advisor to CEO Craig Ellins. In this role, Emerson will work closely with Ellins on a wide range of policy issues primarily to ensure that treatments are uniform in purity, consistency, and potency, just like any other medicine.
“We have the science, the technology, and the right team to elevate cannabinoid therapies to precisely target debilitating medical conditions,” said Ellins. “Peter Emerson will facilitate our expansion so that we are able to help patients across the country.”
For over forty years, Emerson has helped shape public policy while serving as a senior executive in the US government and during his work with national and international clients. At GB Sciences he will draw upon his experience spearheading strategic communications, marketing, public relations, and advertising initiatives for individuals, corporations, and nonprofit organizations.
“I could not be more pleased to join a company that is seeking to provide evidence-based and medically sound cannabinoid therapies to those afflicted with such wide-ranging chronic conditions as Parkinson’s, epilepsy, and pain,” said Emerson.
Emerson stays active in both the private sector and academia. In addition to his business pursuits, Emerson serves as Associate for Public Policy at Cambridge Health Alliance’s Division on Addiction, a teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School, and as Chairman of the Task Force on College Gambling Policies.
He also serves as a member of the Board of Directors of the Southern African Enterprise Development Fund, a one-hundred-million-dollar fund created by President Clinton at the urging of Nelson Mandela to foster economic growth and promote the creation of jobs in the Southern African region.
Emerson has contributed op-ed pieces to the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and the Boston Globe, as well as postings to the Huffington Post.
He graduated magna cum laude from New York University with a BA and from Harvard Kennedy School of Government with an MPA.
