Humans of Cannabis

Sean Beeman – Sean Beeman is the proud owner of Genesis Pharms, a local Eugene cannabis producer and processor. Alongside his wife Kassy, Genesis Pharms produces a variety of products from flowers to RSO and tinctures.

My cannabis story begins when I moved to Oregon in 2002 and became a medical patient. Back then I was just using cannabis to treat migraines. I was growing at first just for myself and my wife. Soon after I started growing for other medical cannabis patients in Oregon. Back then the system was more relaxed and it gave me the opportunity to help a lot of people out without all the newer restrictions of the OMMP and the OLCC. After being diagnosed with Hepatitis C in 2005, I tried every form of medicine available, pharmaceutical and herbal. It wasn’t until January of 2010 that I called up Rick Simpson and began asking about whole-plant cannabis concentrate. In April of 2010, I took my first dose of RSO and since then began taking it daily. I knew from day one of taking the RSO that this form of cannabis medicine was a game-changer. After 11 months of cannabis treatment, my doctor took a biopsy of my liver and the results showed that it was clear of any signs of Hepatitis C. Once I had seen what this medicine could really do, I continued to provide medicine to medical cannabis patients, including RSO. In addition to providing medicine to those in need, I helped teach patients how to grow their own cannabis and make their own RSO.

In 2016, Genesis Pharms got their recreational cannabis license after Oregon legalized recreational cannabis use. We had already been heavily involved with the medical program so this was an easy choice for us. I knew that regulation would make things more difficult but I knew it was the right direction to go in if I wanted to keep providing quality medicine and education. Since then we have consistently been involved in the Oregon recreational cannabis industry, providing our products to dispensaries across the state. I have numerous testimonials from customers and patients who have used my products to help treat a variety of ailments, including cancers. Their experience, along with my own experience is exactly why I do what I do.
