Cannvas MedTech (CSE:MTEC) , a leading digital cannabis educator and business technology company, is pleased to announce the first appointee to its newly-formed Cannabis Sciences Advisory Board, providing independent scientific oversight and original content for the Cannvas.Me cannabis education platform. Angela Smith, PhD, joins Cannvas as the Board lead, bringing with her a wealth of experience in medical, scientific and clinical affairs for Canadian medicinal and recreational cannabis brands and natural health products, and leading international food brands.

“We are thrilled to welcome Angela to the Cannvas team as the first member of our Cannabis Sciences Advisory Board, where she will be instrumental in guiding our educational content to better disseminate timely evidence-based scientific research around cannabis and its myriad uses,” said Shawn Moniz, Chief Executive Officer, Cannvas MedTech Inc. “Cannvas continues to lead the way in accessible and physician-backed, educator-approved cannabis education, and Angela’s appointment strengthens our commitment to go above and beyond basic Cannabis 101 and provide users with credible knowledge and justification around the latest studies on cannabis and their impact on the health and wellness of Canadians.”

The Cannabis Sciences Advisory Board is an independent panel of esteemed and established scientific consultants from across a range of industries providing oversight and original content to the Cannvas.Me digital cannabis education platform. As the first appointee, Angela will lead the Board’s activities in determining in which areas of current cannabis scientific research to focus its efforts while leveraging her past experience coordinating and managing medical expert advisory boards to develop the structure of the Board’s contributions, activities and inquiries.

A PhD-level scientist with over a decade of experience in basic and clinical research and teaching, and expert knowledge in regulatory, medical, scientific, and technical affairs, Angela is the founder of Catalyst Life Sciences Consulting, a boutique firm providing a wide range of medical, scientific and regulatory consulting services for Canadian natural health products, highly regulated food products including infant formulas and foods, and medical and recreational cannabis. She brings with her a strong working knowledge of North American and international regulatory frameworks, including the Federal Cannabis Act and Provincial/Territorial cannabis regulatory frameworks.

Angela spent 10 years in the food and natural health products industry, leading and supporting prenatal, maternal and infant scientific affairs. Her expertise included the preparation of evidence-based regulatory documentation and scientific evidence, coordination, development and evaluation of educational program initiatives for healthcare professionals and consumers, and providing scientific expertise and evidence-based guidance to senior executives.

Angela has worked on projects with the University of Toronto, Toronto’s Hospital for Sick Children and B.C. Women’s and Children’s Hospital, among others. Angela has amassed a great deal of experience developing and managing medical and continuing education programs for healthcare professionals through organizations including the College of Family Physicians of Canada, the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada and the Canadian Council on Continuing Education in Pharmacy. Over her career she has also made valuable contributions to stakeholder consultations on health policies and position statements with the federal government, expert groups and associations.

Operating independent of any licenced producers or clinics, Cannvas.Me works with its Medical Advisory Board and Educational Advisory Panel and newly-formed Cannabis Sciences Advisory Board to provide a safe space for cannabis education with no pressure to purchase or consume.

The Cannabis Sciences Advisory Board will consist of prominent Canadians and Americans who are among the leaders in their fields with robust backgrounds in education, health sciences, medicine and research. Members of the Board will be in constant communication with the Cannvas.Me team to offer guidance on new educational modules, oversight of and contributions to original Cannvas.Me content, and insights into health sciences, clinical trials, medical, scientific and regulatory affairs, and other related topics.
