Our Co-Founder and CEO, Jake Garry, discovered the amazing qualities of cannabis in his teens after being fascinated by the plant. Jake attended Texas Tech University where he studied business management and agriculture farming. He was hoping that Texas would eventually bring the cannabis and hemp industry to his home state. After partnering with one of Texas’ most prominent businessmen, Todd Pietsch, and being mentored by his lifelong best friend, Orlando Watts, the vision for Drops of Life was born. Today, Jake focuses on building the Drops of Life brand in addition to serving on the Executive Board of the Texas Hemp Coalition to make lasting change in the hemp industry.
Co-Founder Orlando Watts was born and raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico and has been in the medical cannabis industry for over 15 years. Orlando was integral in building New Mexico’s medical marijuana industry and loves connecting people with the products they need to live a better life. Through Drops of Life, Orlando is able to leverage his extensive experience and passion for wellness to teach people about how beneficial cannabis can be.
