Sebastián Marincolo

(aka Dr Sebastian Schulz) is a publicist, author, consciousness researcher, public speaker, and strategic consultant for communication and brand design.

He studied philosophy and linguistics in Tübingen and in the USA at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill under some of the most influential philosophers of his time, and completed his doctorate on a topic in the interdisciplinary field of neurophilosophy and philosophy of consciousness. His interest in the nature of human consciousness and altered states of consciousness led to a long-standing research focus on the cannabis high and its influence on higher cognitive functions and abilities such as memory, attention, imagination, pattern recognition, introspection, empathy, creativity and spontaneous insight.

To enable his research in a highly stigmatized field, he has worked both independently and as an employee in positions as photographer, creative director, and senior consultant for communication for foundations and other internationally operating clients. From 2017 to 2021, he worked as Director of Communications and Marketing, Germany, and as a Director for Internal Communications, Europe, for the largest cannabis producer in the world at the time. This enabled him to help medical cannabis achieve a further breakthrough in Germany and Europe, giving tens of thousands of patients access to cannabis as a remedy.

Marincolo is the author of four non-fiction books and numerous essays on the mind-altering potential of cannabis. He worked for a long time with Harvard Assoc. Prof. of Psychiatry Dr Lester Grinspoon, one of the world’s best-known cannabis experts, with whom he had a long-standing friendship. His research and cannabis macro-art photography has received worldwide media coverage, including SPIEGEL-Online, ZDF/3sat, Stuttgarter Zeitung, Hessen 2, SWR1 and SWR2, and Deutschlandfunk. He is a welcome speaker at conferences and has been a guest on numerous podcasts including the Brave New Weed Podcast, Aidan McCullen’s Innovation Show, the Natural Excuse Podcast, and the TrueLife Podcast.
