About Trina Hazzah

Trina Hazzah was born and raised in Washington DC. She attended Tuskegee University School of Veterinary Medicine where she earned her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine in 2006. She completed her small animal internship at Red Bank Veterinary Hospital in New Jersey and a 3-year residency in medical oncology at the Veterinary Oncology and Hematology Center in Connecticut. She has also completed the requirements to be a Certified Veterinary Chinese Herbalist from the Chi Institute of Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine.

She developed an interest in cannabis medicine during her quest for finding effective integrative approaches for veterinary cancer patients. Over the past 8 years, she has treated hundreds of patients with cannabis.

She has since given numerous lectures to veterinarians educating them on the topic of cannabis medicine, performed cannabis-related research, published peer-reviewed articles on cannabis in veterinary medicine, co-authored multiple cannabis-related textbooks, and is the president and co-founder of the Veterinary Cannabis Society, which is the first US-based non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization building awareness of cannabis as medicine for pets.

After almost 15 years of practicing medical oncology, she switched her focus to predominantly cannabis medicine and is the founder of Green Nile, Inc.
