Scott Holden

Founder & CEO of CBD Global

Founder & CEO

In 2014 Scott created Cannabis Transparency Standards™ (CTS), which was the first chain of custody compliance program in the hemp industry; now in the process of being block chained with a crypto token payment option to free businesses from banking and merchant underwriting control.

Prior to hemp, Scott worked in software consulting for companies like Lockheed Martin, General Dynamics and Boeing, implementing IBM software development tools and Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) practices.

He also held the position of CEO for an encrypted mobile communications company, where he expanded the business’s service models increasing revenues by millions, right before resigning from software to find an alternative treatment to chemotherapy for his father’s chronic myelomonocytic leukemia (CMML).

Now focused full time in hemp, Scott applies his formal education in molecular biology and biochemistry to conduct research and develop natural plant-based drug delivery systems that offer patients healthier and more convenient alternatives to traditional pharmaceutical drugs.

Despite his 18-month prognosis, Scott’s father is successfully winning his battle after 7 years (and counting) with the help of cannabis.
