Being reported by various outlets, this is what Marijuana Times are saying,
Singer/ songwriter Melissa Etheridge has reportedly entered the medical cannabis industry, creating a company called Etheridge Farms that will serve California patients. In an interview with Billboard, she discusses her decision to do so while attempting to perhaps distance herself from her fellow celebrity cannabis entrepreneurs.
“These are sun-grown California products. I want to really focus my products on wellness and on the medicinal part. Some people may not want to go into a dispensary for a Snoop Dogg [strain] — nothing against Wiz Khalifa and all those beautiful people — that’s not what they’re looking for. They’re looking for medicinal relief. I want them to know this is the brand that they can trust, that there’s scientific research behind it and really bring this to the medical community,” she told Billboard in the interview.
Etheridge was diagnosed with breast cancer back in 2004. A decade later, she is cancer-free, which she says is largely due to her use of medical cannabis.
