Gary’s CBD discovery started out as a selfish journey looking to help his CrossFit Master Competition career but then discovered that his daughter had a dependency on opiates that lead her down a path of using heroin. He realized that this plant could help her overcome her addiction but , sadly the law and legislation were not on his side, and before he could get a cannabis product that was safe and viable, she lost her battle, losing her life.

She was on life support until her 27th birthday. That day Gary and his wife decided to let her go. His daughter was someone who always wanted to help others, which showed even after her death. To their surprise, his daughter was an organ donor, and she saved someone else’s life with her own.

At that point, Gary’s relationship with CBD and Cannabis changed to one of helping others in addiction with a particular focus on providing help to his fellow brothers and sisters in the fire department, many of whom face problems with PTSD and associated depression.
