Our Projects Include:

Council for Federal Cannabis Regulation

Artemis’s founder, a former Justice Department regulatory lawyer, is the founder and Chair of the Council for Federal Cannabis Regulation. The CFCR brings together leaders from established industry and the emerging cannabis industry to work with the federal agencies as the government begins to legalize cannabis. The CFCR’s current work is led by its scientific committee and seeks to provide input to the FDA from various constituencies to create fair and informed regulations that reflect the needs of all industries from food to pharma. Our understanding of those regulations, anticipating their adoption and shaping their terms provide us with a critical edge to build a successful cannabis business.


Our Values


We find unique solutions and seeing what others don’t by bringing together innovative ideas, approaches and alliances.

Social Consciousness

We work closely with the Marijuana Policy Project to support the legalization of cannabis and the creation of FDA and other regulations for the safe use of medicinal cannabis.


We promote the moral and economic dignity of every individual, regardless of race, religion or color.

I was fortunate to meet Sheri soon after moving from Wall Street into the cannabis industry. Her unique way of thinking, her articulate vision and her extensive history of successful execution were immediately apparent and I committed to finding ways to partner with her. Sheri contemplates cannabis holistically and understands that the short term dynamics currently at play will ultimately be superseded by traditional commercial fundamentals. Given this disposition Sheri’s ability to identify long term value in individuals, products, services and platforms is truly differentiated. Her insights and impact set her apart and establish her as a true thought leader in cannabis
