My friend and homie Grant did 2 tours in Iraq as a Marine grunt. Meaning he was doing front line shit.
Went to UT (University of Texas) and because he’s pretty smart he got a petroleum engineering degree and went to work at Chevron.
Here’s the rub.
The PTSD he was diagnosed with didn’t go away and like many vets he was seeking a way to function at a high level without all the traditional treatments like Paxil, Zoloft, Prozac, Effexor or Tegretol.
We remained friends and I kinda became Grants mentor. Especially as he sought a way to satisfy his entrepreneurial urge and at the same time help our fellow vets.
** SIDEBAR::: as a former Army nurse I gotta interject that PTSD is rampant among our heroes. Returing home from the stresses of combat and overseas service is placing enormous pressure on an ill equipped VA system **
Now back to the story….
After seeking alternative treatment options my homie Grant discovered CBD (cannabidiol) which is a component of cannabis and it became his mission.
As a result a company was born right smack dab in the middle of the green revolution. And I went all in for what is turning out to be the ride of a life.
In fact, if you’re reading this then you are somewhat a part of an even newer cannabis company and distributorship where it’s our mission as caregivers and entrepreneurs to introduce to you a new type of wellness. One that includes what used to be a “counterculture” and oft stigmatized plant called cannabis.
Until the next installment where I’ll share the genesis of a cannabis company, stay tuned and follow the links below…
