Zack Duncan

Zack Duncan began working with Solevo in the fall of 2017 as a digital marketing and SEO consultant. Zack leads a small digital marketing company called Root and Branch and is the Digital Marketing Executive in Residence at the University of Pittsburgh.

Since working with Solevo, Zack has changed from being a medical marijuana skeptic to become a defender of patients who use medical marijuana products. He has been repeatedly convinced by firsthand experience with patients, such as those who successfully use medical marijuana to transition away from heavy painkillers such as opioids.

Zack has a genetic heart condition called hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and a snazzy implanted cardiac defibrillator. While he has not ever used marijuana products himself, he supports the rights of patients who do. He is grateful for the opportunity he’s had to work with the Solevo Wellness team.
