About Cheryl Shuman
Cheryl Shuman’s TV reality started at age three with Charles Kuralt. By age 17 she’d been in several television appearances and was offered to host a twice-weekly regular show on WLWT-TV in Cincinnati that led to a segment on ‘PM Magazine.’ At age 23, Cheryl relocated to Los Angeles as the personal optician to Michael Jackson and created a new business Starry Eyes. In Hollywood with Starry Eyes, she worked on the biggest films, TV and music properties generating revenues of $22 million within 36 months. This led to her own show on the QVC Network and a mutually rewarding 7-year relationship expanding to include product placement, production and branded entertainment divisions. In 2006 Shuman was diagnosed with cancer, and after years of following failed allopathic medicine treatments, she opted for endocannabinoids as an alternative. Having successfully used medical cannabis (raw juice and oils grown on a California farm), she subsequently founded the Beverly Hills Cannabis Club, became the face of medical cannabis and is most visible woman in the medical marijuana reform movement. Cheryl received the 2013 Activist of the Year award. Together Cheryl and Aimee, her daughter and EVP of Cheryl Shuman, Inc., have reached over 100 million viewers while appearing on such mainstream shows as CNN’s Piers Morgan Live, the Katie Couric Show, The View, ABC’s 20/20, Good Morning America, Fox Business News and many other international media outlets.
