About Cheryl Shuman

Cheryl Shuman's TV reality started at age three with Charles Kuralt. By age 17
she'd been in several television appearances and was offered to host a
twice-weekly regular show on WLWT-TV in Cincinnati that led to a segment on
'PM Magazine.' At age 23, Cheryl relocated to Los Angeles as the personal
optician to Michael Jackson and created a new business Starry Eyes. In
Hollywood with Starry Eyes, she worked on the biggest films, TV and music
properties generating revenues of $22 million within 36 months. This led to
her own show on the QVC Network and a mutually rewarding 7-year relationship
expanding to include product placement, production and branded entertainment
divisions. In 2006 Shuman was diagnosed with cancer, and after years of
following failed allopathic medicine treatments, she opted for
endocannabinoids as an alternative. Having successfully used medical cannabis
(raw juice and oils grown on a California farm), she subsequently founded the
Beverly Hills Cannabis Club, became the face of medical cannabis and is most
visible woman in the medical marijuana reform movement. Cheryl received the
2013 Activist of the Year award. Together Cheryl and Aimee, her daughter and
EVP of Cheryl Shuman, Inc., have reached over 100 million viewers while
appearing on such mainstream shows as CNN's Piers Morgan Live, the Katie
Couric Show, The View, ABC's 20/20, Good Morning America, Fox Business News
