Green Cuisine was formed in 2016, when three different people from diverse backgrounds came together with one vision. Alex, Will and Ash all shared the dream of a world where people could benefit from the positive effects of CBD at an affordable price. Frustrated by the lack of effective CBD products which are often massively overpriced, we decided to unite to develop a new range that actually worked. Each member of the team has brought their own unique set of skills to the table and has helped to develop Green Cuisine into what it is today.
Alex is our resident scientist. He has a background in chemistry and experience in the chemical industry. He believes that greedy corporations are jeopardising our health as a consequence of their unquenchable thirst for massive profits. Natural compounds cannot be patented, hence Big Pharma has no interest in developing these natural products, as the profit margins would be much reduced due to market competition. Alex’s vision involves combining the latest technological and scientific discoveries from the pharmaceutical industry with natural plant-based chemistry to provide safe and effective health products.
Will has a wealth of experience and knowledge in developing new innovative companies. He is a self-made and self-taught entrepreneur with a passion for pushing the boundaries of what is possible. He is interested in developing new ideas and creating a sustainable global business that delivers effective and affordable health products. Will is fascinated by plant-based medicine and truly believes in the potential health benefits of CBD. Given that our understanding of cannabinoids is rapidly progressing, this is an exciting time to be involved in such a positive field.
Ash is an ethical entrepreneur and passionate activist, whose own positive experiences with CBD fuelled his desire to share its benefits with others. In 2015, his girlfriend was diagnosed with epilepsy and was having multiple seizures every day. After suffering terribly from the side effects of her prescribed medication (Keppra and Lamictal) and at her wits’ end, she tried CBD oil on the recommendation of a friend. It had an immediate effect, drastically reducing her seizures from the first dose. Through a process of trial and error, she and Ash managed to find the correct dosage and developed their own oil, which is the inspiration behind the product Green Cuisine sells today. She has now been seizure free for one year and is no longer taking the medication she was prescribed. Ash has also suffered from psoriasis for the past eight years, a skin condition which leaves sufferers with large scabs covering various parts of their body. From research into CBD for his girlfriend’s epilepsy, they learnt of its anti-inflammatory properties and tried it on his skin with astonishing results - Ash’s psoriasis has now virtually disappeared - leading to them formulating the balm offered by Green Cuisine today. He is proud to be part of Green Cuisine; he believes in honest business and is happy to talk to anybody who wants advice and support before committing to a treatment.
