Starting a Cannabis and CBD company

Did I ever tell you about the time I gave up my Hollywood career and started a CANNABIS and CBD HEMP company?

Like the original WILFRED short film, it all started as a joke. I was in my office writing yet another pilot script for a Hollywood studio that would never be made, and to break the monotony I made a joke post for my social media followers promoting ‘Wilfred’s Weed Delivery Service!” Well the response was overwhelming. Fans were talking about taking road trips from all over the US to come to LA and buy Wilfred’s weed!

Before I knew it, I’d given up writing, sold my apartment to bankroll the business, acquired a Californian cannabis manufacturing license and immersed myself in the industry. I designed the packaging, shot a commercial, procured the flower then hit the pavement going from dispensary to dispensary making sales in a Wilfred Cannabis T-shirt. I was chasing a dream I could have never imagined possible. It was terrifying and exhilarating.

My favorite part of building the business in our first year were the in-store appearances where I would promote the brand and meet the fans AS WILFRED. It was the first time I actually got to meet the people who had made the tv show such a success.

It’s hard to describe the joy in the eyes of these grown adults as they hugged a smelly Australian man in a crusty old dog suit. It was like they were tapping into their childhoods, but from an adult “let’s smoke a blunt together” perspective.

Of course, with the world the way it is right now, it isn’t practical for me to make in-store appearances for a while. But now, with the launch of our new Wilfred CBD Smokes that can be ordered online and shipped to most States in the US, I have a new opportunity for fans to meet the big dog.


The first 500 people to purchase a carton (pack of 10 packs) of Wilfred CBD Smokes will be invited to join one of several exclusive “Zoom Q&A sessions with WILFRED!” that we will coordinate with the buyers in the coming weeks.

They will also receive a Limited Edition “1st 500” Wilfred CBD Smokes bumper sticker (I love bumper stickers and this is a beauty!)

To be part of this once in a lifetime opportunity go to

Each carton of Wilfred CBD Smokes contains:

- 10 packs of 20 Filtered Hemp CBD Smokes rolled in classic cigarette style (200 smokes)

- 100% Organic Hemp Flower, No Biomass

- 16,000 – 20,000 mg CBD per pack

- Less than .3% THC (non-psychoactive)

- No Tobacco or Nicotine

Thanks for reading. Stay safe. Wilfred hopes to meet you soon!
