Senior Editor

Lee Johnson

Lee Johnson is the senior editor at CBD Oracle, and has been covering science, vaping and cannabis for over 10 years. He has a MS in Theoretical Physics from Uppsala University. At CBD Oracle, he focuses on research-driven deep dives into topics ranging from medical uses for CBD to industry and user statistics, as well as general guides and explainers for consumers. Along with his work at CBD Oracle, he covers the science and politics surrounding vaping, covering stories such as a major premium vape brand finding itself at the center of the “popcorn lung” scandal and the EVALI outbreak of 2019. His vaping-related writing has appeared on other sites including Vaping360 and The Ashtray Blog, as well as in a New York Times op-ed. Alongside his more scientific and political work, he is also a vaper (having quit smoking with an early e-cigarette in 2012) who casually uses both CBD and cannabis. He is a passionate advocate of all three, and supports the freedom of consumers to choose while stressing the importance of accurate and honest information about the often-contentious topics. He is originally from the UK and is currently living in Sweden.
