Garrett Greller suffered from chronic pain in his knees, back, hips, and ankles and was diagnosed with arthritis at the age of 14. After two years of doctors’ visits and unresolved pain, Mr. Greller started his entrepreneurial journey and founded Uncle Bud’s Hemp with one pain relief product, Uncle Bud’s Topical Pain Reliever, which is the only thing that worked for his pain. He was determined to help himself and others solve their chronic pain issues with effective and accessible products that offered relief through natural and affordable CBD and hemp products. At that time, CBD was widely misunderstood, and Mr. Greller was a true pioneer in the pain relief sector of hemp and CBD. He worked with an FDA registered lab to formulate the hemp-based natural pain products that now includes an expanded line of hemp products, skincare, and personal care lines.
With its rapid growth trajectory, the brand has amassed a cult-following with a burgeoning range of products, roster of major retailers, and the support of a growing circle of iconic brand partners, including NBA legend and entrepreneur Earvin "Magic" Johnson, Grammy Award-winning recording artist Toni Braxton, and NHL Blackhawks star defenseman Seth Jones. Uncle Bud's has grown to include over 75 hemp and CBD products retailed in more than 15,000 stores nationally and internationally, making them one of the top hemp and CBD brands in the world. As a leader in the space, Uncle Bud's Hemp takes pride in being Made in America, GMO-free, cruelty-free, and Leaping Bunny Certified.
