How It All Began

As a child spending my summers working on a farm near Stanton, Nebraska, I learned to love the land and all that it provides, especially the produce. No other tomato in the world tasted like the ones grown in that soil. That is where my deeply rooted connection to the land began.

In 2015, after sustaining multiple injuries in a car wreck I found my quality of life severely lacking. I was in constant pain with horrible inflammation and felt that my spirit was waning. I decided to seek out a solution to ease these chronic issues. Eventually, I flew to California and learned about the possible differences that adding a phytocannabinoid rich supplement and boosting my endogenous cannabinoid system could make. My hope was restored and relief finally found after trying various products at the Cannabis World Business and Congress Expo in Los Angeles. I took what I learned there and decided to utilize it here in Houston, Texas.

By September 2016, I had begun to create CBD Houston which has been in business ever since. I began traveling the United States to reconnect with the land and visit farmers on their farms. As I built relationships with those men and women and worked with them more my vision for the future became clear: to provide consumers with legal, safe, and effective CBD products so that they too could reap potential benefits.

Now, as I continue to build my company, I think back to those early days. I strive to bring that passion and simplicity to our consumers with the products that CBD Houston offers. I maintain my connection with the land by regularly visiting partner farms, extractors, and manufacturers to ensure quality. I work diligently to stay up to date on trends in all of the related industries and continue to invest in our partnerships, processes and facilities to continuously create new growth opportunities.

Our consumer-focused business model means that CBD Houston is not simply putting out a product, but helping people. All products and marketing philosophies adhere to the strict State and Federal guidelines. Everything is independently tested for heavy metals, pesticides, residual solvents, mycotoxins, and potency. CBD Houston has a full-time research biologist on staff and is forming an ten-member advisory board to strengthen the vision and future of the company. My intention is to maintain a standing in the community as a leader and trusted source for people’s nutritional needs.
