Our Story

Born From One Son’s Mission To Help His Father Fight A Chronic Disease


The Start

Through Experience Comes Innovation

Scott Holden (founder) began running cannabis extraction via CO2 and hydrocarbons for oil manufacturing and early-stage product development for the cannabis vape industry as a side project to his career in software.


CBD Global Is Founded

Leaving Software Technology & Getting Back To Biological Sciences

Scott learned of his father’s CMML diagnosis and began to focus on hemp CBD product development to find a high potency and non-intoxicating solution for his father.
CBD Global launched, making it one of the first three companies to appear in the CBD industry, pre-dating the US Farm Bill.
CBD Global secured a rare high CBD strain of low THC hemp with >75% CBD concentration in first phase extraction, which held greater medicinal value and legal compliance than the popularized Charlotte’s Web strain that appeared much later.
Began importing and distributing crude CBD hemp oil and CBD isolate into US market.
Began research projects with three universities covering areas of study in plant genome sequencing, gene transformation via CRISPR technology, human bioavailability blood analysis to determine dosage and regimen plans, and radio assays for measuring receptor binding affinity and subsequent product efficacy.
