Ardent with Founder and President Shanel A. Lindsay

Ardent with Shanel A. Lindsay, Founder and President of Ardent, today on Plant Prophets with Vern Davis only on Cannabis Radio. For years Shanel struggled to dose accurately with her medicine. She thought she was doing a good job with her homespun methods until she took her medicine to the lab and realized she could be doing much better. Determined to find a solution, Shanel decided to test all the methods people are currently using. Shanel learned It’s virtually impossible to get a full decarb with this conventional appliance. Every method she tried fell short. She commissioned testing with MCR labs on the science to finally solve this grey area in the cannabis world. Armed with this breakthrough research, Shanel developed the NOVA – an inNOVAtive in-home device that delivers decarbed marijuana to patients looking for an alternative method to consume.

Over 10 years ago, Ardent founder Shanel Lindsay began to use cannabis medicinally as an alternative to pharmaceuticals to treat pain and inflammation caused by an ovarian cyst. The best therapy was one that could be applied topically or ingested, which lead her to begin to process the cannabis in order to create oils, tinctures, and salves. Shanel quickly found that properly preparing cannabis for medicinal use was truly a scientific process. Over the next decade, she continued to gain first-hand expertise with various methods of extracting, preparing and applying cannabis compounds. Although she had become an expert over years of trial and error, she saw many patients frustrated by their inability to make effective medicine or their lack of time and resources required to attempt the process.
