Socrates Rosenfeld Has High Hopes for Marijuana’s Medical Soothing

September 5, 2020

He's a human cultural melting pot but Socrates Rosenfeld's expertise is in marijuana – the medical use of cannabis – especially to help veterans, something else he knows about after serving as an Army officer.

In an interview with Green Entrepreneur, Rosenfeld – his father is Greek-Cypriot, his adopted stepfather Jewish-American, and his mother grew up in Indonesia, of Egyptian and Sumatran roots – announced two new e-commerce modules for his Jane Technologies, a retail software company that helped create online cannabis sales.

“The founding team and I had a clear goal to provide safe and smart access to a healing plant and to build a platform that would benefit the consumer, dispensary, and industry as a whole,” he said in the interview.

“Growing up in a multicultural home with generations of mixed heritage, I came to understand that connection transcends language, race, or religion,” he added.

“For me, plant medicine has helped me undo the long-term effects of overriding natural human emotion. It creates the space to feel any fear or emotional pain that has been carried for too long,” he added of his product.


Brad Parker, Hospitality CEO and founder of Parker Hospitality in Chicago, had an idea to put an Italian restaurant in an empty prime spot in the city's West Loop.
