OUR STORY

OUR STORY

Wayne J M Karim

Wayne J M Karim

Wayne is a medicinal chemist and cannabis specialist with years of formal laboratory training and research experience in total chemical synthesis and purification, organic chemistry, analytical chemistry, biochemistry, cellular biology, and molecular biology.

Wayne completed his studies for Bachelor of Science in Biology at the University of California, Riverside, and his studies for Master of Science in Medicinal Chemistry at the University of San Francisco. During his tenure at both universities, he served as an instructor for organic chemistry laboratory courses, and as a lead technician for botanical and chemical research laboratories.

Following his employment as Director of Extraction for the world’s first medical cannabis company (Tikun Olam) during their expansion into North America, Wayne founded Cweed LLC where he now proudly serves as Chief Executive and Chief Scientific Officer. The company currently provides professional consulting services to the global cannabis and hemp industries, while also contributing to numerous cooperative scientific research efforts in the sector.

Wayne Karim - Cweed LLC Founder & CEO

Wayne J M Karim – Chief Scientific Officer, Founder

Wayne is a survivor of 19 months of immuno-suppressive chemotherapy and an allogeneic bone marrow transplant following his diagnosis with very Severe Aplastic Anemia (vSAA). Through this period of intensive medical isolation and treatment, cannabis medicine played a central role in managing chemotherapeutic side effects, and was implicated as a direct contributor to transplant success and the ultimate recovery of his immune system. Extensive academic research he conducted regarding the relationship between cannabis and human immunocompetence has recently been compiled into a formal article and submitted for publication to the peer-reviewed scientific journal, Cannabis and Cannabinoid Research.
