Dan Humiston: [00:00:32] I'm Dan Humiston and on today's show how Charlie Gregory's battle with cancer led to Medi -midst a smoke free solution to the agony of chemotherapy.
Dan Humiston: [00:00:53] Hey Charlie. Hi Dan how are you today.
Charlie Gregory: [00:00:56] I'm doing excellent Be On. Share with the listeners my story.
Dan Humiston: [00:01:03] Well today we're with Charlie Gregory and we're going to be talking about his company Green Cross brands and what are their products there. But before we dive into that Charlie can you tell listeners your journey into cannabis. What led you here.
Charlie Gregory: [00:01:19] Yeah.
Charlie Gregory: [00:01:19] I had the misfortune of getting cancer and a very rare type of cancer that put me in the 1 percent group when I went into the into the world of cancer treatment in America.
Dan Humiston: [00:01:36] Wow.
Dan Humiston: [00:01:37] So are you right now in remission.
Charlie Gregory: [00:01:40] I am.
Charlie Gregory: [00:01:40] I've been in remission for 10 years.
Dan Humiston: [00:01:44] Assuming when you went through your trials with cancer you realize that there are a lot of problems and there are a lot of voids that should be filled. Can you expand on that a little bit.
Charlie Gregory: [00:01:55] One of the things I always knew is that you know marijuana always cannabis always made my stomach feel good and I would eat one of the things that happens when you start taking cancer meds and treatments that your stomach feels like mush.
Charlie Gregory: [00:02:09] Everything is horrible and you're throwing up and you're the worst case. No. You had kind of combined them Merry-Go-Round with the worst cases seasickness and have that 24/7.
Charlie Gregory: [00:02:22] So smoking weed to help get rid of your stomach. No it was an amazing thing and built up my appetite. Your only problem was I couldn't smoke it in the lobby and the vape pens were out but you couldn't use them indoors. Can I eat it edibles but they are unpredictable. I had a function to day. I needed small doses of a different formulation. It would not go into my lungs but would stay in my mouth all areas in my mouth that are more reliable uptake and I needed measured dosages so that's why I started the quest to develop the body of so once I made the first batches of my went through all the medical wards and all of a sudden I'm looking around the ward and everybody's using them and they're all going. Thank God it really works and it does feel so much better.
Dan Humiston: [00:03:15] So this is like like an inhaler. Like people that have had asthma.
Charlie Gregory: [00:03:19] Yes exactly. Same same type of thing what they call that is a pressurised metered dose inhaler.
Dan Humiston: [00:03:27] When I look around the room I saw people who had the little bit of relief and that they had a lot of comfort in what's what I found interesting.
Dan Humiston: [00:03:39] Is that it's a self-contained unit. It's the person doesn't have to do anything it's all packaged up. They opened up the package and the quality inhaler is is right there and they don't have to add anything. They don't have to do anything the batteries are nothing involved when it's done they throw it away they get another breath you take care of making sure that the quality of the of the ingredients in the products is is at the highest level. I mean this is such a closed easy thing.
Charlie Gregory: [00:04:11] And by consistently delivering superior Cannabinoids THC formulations it makes this line the products and patients and consumers who really need a highly effective and potent consistent dose but without smoke or vapor. There is no smoke there is nothing to live. There is no battery. There is no bowl to fill or are they.
Dan Humiston: [00:04:37] And there's no guessing there's no guessing. It's exactly the same dose every time same exact dosage every single time.
Charlie Gregory: [00:04:47] We just added in the ability to use bluetooth as monitoring with ease so that it will track your usage without doing anything it it'll just track your usage feeding into your computer or your phone. In short your usage and then you can go back or your doctor can go back and look over that and.
Dan Humiston: [00:05:09] Now you're you have to be pretty far along with this process because obviously you've already packaged it up and you're giving it to people. Tell us where you are in this process. Because it's it's way beyond a concept an idea.
Charlie Gregory: [00:05:22] I guess. 2014 was the start up we launched the MVP around April 2015. I had. You know a large sum of money going into this and convincing people and staffs go up and we dispensed about 5000 units and they went over really really great.
Charlie Gregory: [00:05:45] But in the meantime I realized I will never in a million years be able to handle any volume with this one armed bandit of a machine. I'm working with and I needed the scale.
Dan Humiston: [00:05:59] That's a perfect segue into this next phase of Green Cross and brand you invented the product yet you got the product to a point where there's demand for it. You know it works. Everything's in place. You've done all the heavy lifting. Yes. Now is the next phase where you have to scale this up so you can get it to the masses.
Dan Humiston: [00:06:20] What kind of opportunities are there for investors to help you get it to the next level.
Charlie Gregory: [00:06:25] And as investors those products being made the product has been developed all the marketing pieces are done all the molds are in place the formulations are pretty much there. We have now key personnel in place.
Charlie Gregory: [00:06:45] We need the money to put the business on the map. It's just replicating what we did.
Charlie Gregory: [00:06:50] But in a bigger format so I could take that product a regional product to a state wide product to a national product to an international product extremely fast.
Charlie Gregory: [00:07:04] As an investor to jump into that exponential growth would be easy. So that's what we're looking for and investors. Somebody is sure that he wants to commit to this not. Will it work. The more I want this to work and I'm going to make sure I do everything I can to make it work period.
Dan Humiston: [00:07:31] If an investor is interested in learning more he can contact you Charlie at but marketers can and he can also contact me You hold on to that one day and that's the secret Bat Cave email.
