We had the good fortune of connecting with Sean Collins and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Sean, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
I worked for Walgreens for 15 years. While I was there, I became disgusted with the amount of C2 pain medications we were dispensing. When the farm bill passed in 2019, I had several customers coming in looking for CBD. Walgreens didn’t sell it and my customer base had no one to go to. I saw CBD as a natural alternative to pain medication. I created CBD Beauty and Bath so my client base could have a company they could trust for a natural alternative to pain medication.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I’ve always had an entrepreneurial spirit. As a Store manager for Walgreens I was able to fulfill this desire by making business decisions for a multi million dollar a year store. As the company changed, so did the tasks the company had us do and the compensation also decreased. The desire and ability to help sick people was greatly diminished with the new corporate rules that were coming down. The company was putting profits over care for our customers. I wanted a company that cared about the health and wellness of our customers. I wanted a company that used natural ways to help people get well and fell better.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I would take them into the mountains of Arizona. There is nothing more fun then to hike the mountains, go boating in our lakes, or go 4 wheeling on some mountain trails.
