Kramer’s study of cannabis is driven by the many successes her patients have had over the past six years and she is considered a pioneer in this field. She has been featured in local and national media in Canada and has become a resource for veterinarians across North America seeking information on the benefits of medicinal cannabis for pets.

“Dr. Kramer is a vital addition to our team and her recognized veterinary knowledge builds on our solid foundation of in-house integrative care, cannabis cultivation, and marketing expertise,” said Darcy Bomford, founder and chief executive officer of True Leaf. “Her experience with medicinal cannabis for pets will be integral to our product development process.”

As chair of True Leaf’s Veterinary Advisory Board, Kramer will recruit veterinarians from around the world to join True Leaf as the company develops legal and safe medicinal cannabis products for pets.
