MD FARMA provides scientifically formulated CBD products with the same quality expected of pharmaceutical medications. We’re excited about the potential of hemp-based CBD and work to expedite its entry into the mainstream of evidence-based health care.
Our mission is to bridge the gap between people who are interested in CBD and their doctors. Up until now, health care professionals have been largely excluded from the conversation about hemp-based products.
We seek to change that, reducing people’s reliance on prescription opioids and reintegrating health care professionals as a trusted, unbiased source of information on the potential benefits and uses of CBD.
Who we are
MD FARMA was founded by biotech industry experts Reggie Gatewood and Chad Collins.
Reggie Gatewood, Founder, President
Reggie brings over two decades of commercial sales, marketing, change leadership and large scale training success to MD Farma. During his time as US Head of Sales at Dermik the scale up and highly successful launch of Sculptra Aesthetic in the US marketplace.
Reggie has successfully led sales teams in the biotech, buy-and-bill, medical device and pharmaceutical sectors. Reggie has held multiple roles as a marketer, including spearheading the U.S. launch of a new indication for Plavix, the multi-billion dollar blockbuster cardiovascular medication that became one of the most successful products ever launched.
An International Coaching Federation (ICF) certified life coach with a passion for serving others, Reggie brings decades of experience in science-backed health solutions and working side by side with health care providers.
Like many others, he was drawn to CBD because of its potential to support people’s health naturally and safely. However, Reggie was taken aback by the lack of regulation, quality control, and evidence-based information in the CBD industry.
Given his unique perspective at the interface between patients and their doctors, he saw an opportunity to provide clinical grade CBD products and integrate health care professionals into the conversation about the potential benefits of hemp.
