CEO, CannaKids & SavingSophie.org
Tracy Ryan is the CEO and lead consultant for CannaKids, a California
Cooperative Cooperation that specializes in the creation of lab tested, and PhD scientist extracted cannabis oils. Since her infant daughter’s brain tumor diagnosis in June of 2013, Tracy has dedicated a huge part of her life to educating herself on the medicinal powers of medical marijuana in treating her own daughter’s disease, as well as all other pediatric and adult cancers, epilepsy, autism and beyond. Tracy has worked on a global scale with families who are seeking education, and treatment options for their loved ones, and has guided many patients to unheard of success.
Tracy and her team at CannaKids have recently entered into a collaboration with the Technion Institute in Israel where they are legally studying the effects of cannabinoids on many cancer types. CannaKids is sharing all of their patient data that they have been meticulously collecting with Technion. CannaKids is also working with another team of scientists in Israel, and will be opening up a national campaign that would give patients all over the US access to genomic sequencing, and cannabinoid recommendations based on the patient’s genetic mutations found in their tumor or blood sample.
Tracy is also the Vice Chair for the Women’s Grow LA Chapter, and as a public speaker, can be found speaking at medical cannabis and pediatric cancer events all over the country in her quest to educate the mass public on the power of this incredible plant. In addition, the Ryan family is the key focus of the Abby Epstein and Ricki Lake documentary, “Weed the People”, releasing later this year. They have also been featured in many national news pieces including, NationalGeographic.com, Vice News, Entertainment Tonight, and many more. As an educator, activist,
and self proclaimed Momcologist, it is Tracy’s mission to uncover the mysteries behind this plant in hopes to formulate disease specific cannabinoid formulations for patients of all ages.
