Stanley Atkins II
CEO/Founder
The CanniMedic & The Stanley Group, LLC

I am a US Navy veteran, retired Clayton County firefighter Paramedic and entrepreneur. I proudly served my country on two deployments into the Persian Gulf. I separated from the Navy in 2006 and joined the Clayton County Fire Department in September of 2007. I went on to achieve the certifications as an EMT, hazmat technician special operations, as well as Paramedic. I received several state and national awards including the Distinguished Pediatric Trauma Life Safety Award, as well multiple Cardiac Life Save award. In 2015 I was forced to retire from the fire department, while also working as a Paramedic technician at Emory University Hospital due to severe illness.

In 2015 I began to research alternative therapies for severely ill patients, with a special focus on the endocannabinoid system and thus becoming known as "The CanniMedic". I transitioned my knowledge base in emergency medicine over to cannabis healthcare education. I began to educate and advocate in Georgia for the creation of a medical cannabis program for Georgia patients. I have collaborated with organizations such as Peachtree NORML, Women Grow, Safe America Foundation, DBHDD, Cobb County Crisis Intervention Training, as well as local and state elected officials. In January 2019, I was appointed as the GA Chapter President of Minorities for Medical Marijuana (M4MM). 2019 also saw the successful passage of medical cannabis cultivation for the production of low thc oil, as well as industrial hemp cultivation . Through my continued work and advocacy in the cannabis space I have been featured on platforms such as Vice, The Young Turks, B Real TV, High Rollerz BJJ and Benzinga. I have been featured as a guest speaker at conferences and events across the United States. While attending MJ Bizcon in 2019 I won the M4MM "Business Pitch contest", for my medical cannabis patient referral program.
