“Medicinal marijuana saved my son” says co-founder Russell Thomas. Several years ago, we discovered our one-year-old son, Jack has an incurable condition called Fragile X Syndrome; it’s essentially DNA corruption that leads to mental retardation, social anxiety and autism. He could not walk, talk or even eat solid foods.
They were the first parents to attempt treatment using cannabidiol (CBD), and saw a dramatic difference immediately. Jack now walks, talks and eats everything in sight.
All the Right Reasons
Shortly after Jack’s success with cannabis, Russell decided to leave his career of over 20 years in Computer Security to work in cannabis. He watched good people and companies have their reputations ruined, lives destroyed, and even social media accounts removed simply because of a plant. So, he pulled together a team and has spent years creating an app to allow the cannabis community to communicate safely.
With knowledge comes change. For nearly a century we have been misinformed and maligned to believe cannabis is harmful.
We created a medium that allows people to communicate and connect anonymously with other cannabis users around the world. It’s the freedom to speak and share knowledge and experiences that will change the perception of cannabis.
Leading the Charge
Duby started in Denver, Colorado in 2014 by Russell Thomas (CTO) and his cousin Alec Rochford (CEO), and continues to grow the largest active worldwide community in cannabis. Duby is now available on nearly every mobile device with hundreds of thousands of highly active user accounts. We are the cannabis industry leader of digital media and social networking.
