Debbie Doniger & Jason Provost

“I started The Pharm Stand because I saw how cannabinoids, like CBD, helped relieve my clients’ pain and stress, which noticeably helped improve their game.”

 

Debbie Doniger is a Golf Magazine Top 100 Teacher in America—one of only nine women on the list. Golf Digest named her #5 in New York, voted by her peers, and has been one of the top ten teachers since 2015. She is also one of the co-founders of The Pharm Stand and created the brand because she saw, first hand, how hemp-based cannabinoids helped relieve her clients’ pain and stress, which noticeably helped improve their game. 

Debbie contributes to Golf Magazine, Golf Digest and can be heard on Sirius XMPGATour radio live tournament coverage. She has appeared on PGATour Live, FOX Sports and hosted her own shows on Sirius Radio. One was for two years with fellow LPGA player, Natalie Gulbis, and the other was for four years with SiriusXMPGATour, combining the body and the swing with fitness expert and co-host, Ben Shear. 

Debbie grew up in Greenwich, CT and owes her successful AJGA Junior, amateur and college career to her long-time teacher and mentor, Jim McLean. She played college golf at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, where she was captain of the team from her sophomore through senior years. Always in the top ten, UNC Women’s Golf won the ACC Championship in Debbie’s senior year, while she also claimed the individual title. Debbie is in the ACC Golf Hall of Fame, and after competing professionally on the mini tours and The European Tour, she has dedicated the last 25 years to teaching, as a Lead Master Instructor for Jim Mclean and as Director of Instruction at GlenArbor Golf Club in Bedford, NY.

"I started the Pharm Stand to help improve the lives of others and contribute to reducing health care costs", I am convinced we have access to all natural interventions that can achieve both."
