Andrew went to Europe in the winter of 2018 to learn about the CBD industry. After spending a couple of months conducting market research, he realized that Colorado was the place to be. He returned that January and promptly founded WCH. His expertise is in product formulation and brand management. Andrew is motivated by helping people improve their health and feel their best. When he isn’t promoting good health through the use of CBD, he works as a personal trainer. In addition to strength training, Andrews hobbies include going on hikes with his dog Rex and reading.
