Senior-High was created by Karen Lustman to gather information about cannabis products and how they can help active adults alleviate specific health issues, disseminate factual information about these products to seniors, and help our communities’ seniors enjoy safe, effective alternatives to expensive and potentially dangerous pharmaceuticals.
Frustrated with the lack of information available to consumers who use legal products to help with disease, chronic pain, and inflammation, Karen decided to partner with the people she trusts… the medical community that studies cannabis, the health care providers that prescribe it to their patients, and the seniors who know what really works for them.
Armed with a laptop, an AARP membership and a Medical Marijuana card, Karen and her team are determined to gather and share the latest developments and experiences from people like you who have found relief from pain and discomfort by using cannabis.
Karen Lustman is Senior-High’s driving force, President, and Chief Executive Officer.
Karen is a passionate advocate, patient, researcher, and blogger focusing on cannabis and its positive effect on active adults and seniors suffering from chronic pain and other ailments affecting those of us “of a certain age.”

Karen grew up close to the extended family, of grandmas, grandpas, 18 aunts and uncles and over 50 cousins. Summers were spent on her grandparents farm, with all the cousins together dividing up chores from slopping hogs to digging potatoes. For them, it was summer camp.
Karen is married to Lewis Lustman, and together they have raised three daughters, Misty, Amanda and Haley, and are working hard to spoil grandson Hunter who refers to Karen as “Nana” and Lewis as “Grumpa.” Hunter likes French fries and for his second birthday, Karen and Lewis took him to Hooters. Great fries! And the last time Hunter’s parents have spoken with Lewis or her.
Karen has worked with in the recruiting industry for 30 years. Prospecting and selling the service of finding talent for medical device and pharmaceutical companies kept her consistently growing and building a solid career within the industry. Her sales results were rewarded year over year by consistently winning President’s Club. She also managed a team of top recruiters that would win Branch of the Year for 9 out of 10 years.
In 2018 Karen decide to switch her focus to Alternative Medicine. Having damaged her knees in a fall, after countless visits to numerous doctors, she found no prescriptions or invasive procedures could ease her pain.
Quite unexpectedly, Karen – who had never tried cannabis in her life – was introduced to it and found it was far more effective than any potentially addictive prescription she had been given. Once she realized that, her efforts went into learning more and better understanding the plant. It became a path and a passion.
Karen took classes and visited dispensaries to learn everything she could about cannabis. The more she learned, the more she shared the information to her friends. She found so many people her age who did not know how cannabis could relieve their pains. She shared her knowledge and introduced a continuously increasing number of seniors and active adults to cannabis products that, based on Karen’s experience, could alleviate their pain, anxiety, sleepless nights, and many other maladies people experience as they age – and which the medicine of old could not help.
And thus began Senior-High.

Senior-High under Karen's leadership helped me find alternative pain relief from knee surgery. The recommended products were positive supplements to manage my pain. I highly recommend Senior-High and the individual customer service they offer.
Senior-High has helped me find the right solution to help me with my sleep problems. Their support has been right on and I really appreciate their educational materials that led me in the right direction. They make it easy to buy CBD products that work. Senior-High is great!
Thanks to Karen and Senior-High, I found a product that helps me get to sleep and stay asleep, without feeling hungover the next morning! This is the best sleep aid I have used!
A couple weeks before my plantar fasciitis surgery, Karen devised a course of treatment for me involving THC tincture and CBD balm. The improvement is stunning, and there’s just a chance that I will be able to dodge having surgery on my foot. Thanks Senior-High, for your sage advice.
Thank you so much for recommending Papa & Barkley Relief Balm. I have been using it on my knee to help my arthritis. It works great and I am able to enjoy my yoga classes much more. I also have begun using it on my left hip where I have a torn tendon and it is helping as well.
