Jude Thilman is a medical cannabis educator and entrepreneur, offering public presentations throughout California and counseling individuals in wisely choosing and using cannabis medicines. Her education work takes place through her 501(c)3, Creative Change Productions, founded in 2002 (cchange.org). She is the founder and director of Dragonfly Wellness Center (dragonflywellness.org) which opened in 2011 with the mission of providing cannabis medical herbs in the context of a range of holistic healing practices.

Jude is Director of Education for True Farma (truefarma.com), which provides direct patient delivery throughout California of dose-verified, lab tested, pure medicinal cannabis. She hosts a biweekly television program, “Cannabis News & ViewsTM (seen on mendocinotv.com). She started Bhutan (bhutanwellbeing.org), introducing pure and potent Mendocino herbal medicines into the California marketplace since 2015. She brings 30 years’ experience in the management of complex, multi- dimensional projects and in the production of educational media, for which she has received national awards.

Jude brings a life-long commitment to social change and has been an activist on behalf of many causes, including civil rights, gender and reproductive rights, peace and social justice campaigns, among others. She strongly believes in health care as a human right and sees a return to traditional, herbal medicine as sounding the death knell for a “pharmaceuticals dominant” approach to resolving “dis- ease.” She serves on the Board of the Mendocino Cannabis Industry Association and was a leader in the 2016 campaign to pass Measure AF, the first ballot effort to end cannabis prohibition in Mendocino County.
