Joshua Littrell, is a United States Air Force Combat Veteran who served two tours overseas (Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom) as a Bio-Environmental Engineer focusing on Occupational Health and Environmental Protection in peacetime and Nuclear Biological and Chemical (NBC) detection and analysis in wartime. Joshua discovered medical cannabis as a treatment for chronic pain and degenerative disc disease as well as PTSD. The effects of cannabis transformed Joshua's life, allowing him to significantly reduce the amount of prescription medication provided to him by the Veterans Administration and live a clear-headed and productive life he feared Iost to chronic pain and PTSD.
Armed with a new appreciation for cannabis's effectiveness and safety and a passion to serve his fellow Veterans, Joshua has worked tirelessly for the past 5 years to promote legalization of medical cannabis in his home state of Georgia and throughout the southeast. His goal: to end the needless deaths associated with accidental prescription pain medication overdose and reduce the number of suicides associated with PTSD and Chronic Pain.
Joshua spent almost 10 years in insurance and financial services before entering the cannabis space and after he completed his enlistment in the USAF. Joshua is a graduate of Georgia Gwinnett College and holds a bachelors degree in Business Management. Joshua resides in Warner Robins GA, at Robins AFB where his wife Linda is still serving on active duty with the USAF. Joshua and Linda have 2 amazing fur babies, Maggie and Camo.
