He has helped more than 18,000 patients and is nationally regarded as one of the leading experts on Medical Cannabis. Robert Ryan is the Executive Director of the Ohio Patient Network.

Where: Gateway Event and Conference Center, 5441 Global Gateway, North Canton, Ohio.
What: Ohio’s Medical Marijuana Program is scheduled to launch on September 8, 2018. For many Ohioans, this has been greatly anticipated and signals a time of hope and healing. Some believe that accessibility to medical marijuana has systematically and tragically been denied for decades. Yet the medicinal uses of Cannabis have been documented since about 3000 BC. Modern science has already revealed so much about this sacred and controversial plant but there is still much more to understand. Research continues to discover the healing properties of Cannabis and how it promotes balance to the Endocannabinoid System found in our bodies.
According to Dr. Dustin Sulak, “Cannabis is a safe, powerful, and versatile medicine that can help so many people improve their health and their qualities of life.” Dr. Sulak explains that Cannabis is a therapeutic medicine that can work on many different conditions and parts of the body because it interacts with our Endocannabinoid System. “This is a system of physiology that is crucial for health and healing. We all have it inside of us and it is active throughout our entire lives,” says Dr. Sulak.
Nate Jackson, former NFL player and Bestselling Author believes in Cannabis so much so that he is an Ambassador for Athletes for Care, an organization that promotes the use of medical cannabis among professional athletes. “Athletes for Care has given me new purpose and the rare opportunity to be part of a group committed to helping the greater good. Through our initiative, we have the ability to help make positive changes to the way we, as a society, approach our health and wellness,” states Jackson.
The Ohio Patient Network is a 501C3 non-profit educational organization devoted to medical marijuana issues. Executive Director, Robert Ryan, has provided hours of testimony regarding HB523 and the Ohio Medical Marijuana Control Program. His experience with Ohio Legislature is extensive but his personal experience as a three time cancer survivor who used medical marijuana is perhaps most compelling. “The side effects and my response to traditional chemotherapy put me in a position of being removed from treatment,” recalls Mr. Ryan. With his oncologist’s support, he began to supplement with medical marijuana. “My white blood cells and my weight began to increase,” recalls Mr. Ryan. “My energy and my outlook greatly improved. I’d felt better than I had in over a year. I continued to supplement chemotherapy with medical marijuana, as I felt necessary, and I was able to return to work.”
