Mr. Stein has been in the legal profession for over 40 years and currently operates his own legal consulting firm.

The purpose of this team is to further spread autism awareness and to work with groups and institutions to offer services such as basketball camps, anti-bullying, self-defence, job training and quality housing. Through his work within these organizations, Mr. Stein discovered the benefits of CBD and the amazing results through its application.
As part of the Company’s commitment for growth, Mr. Stein will add his wealth of knowledge, extensive business experience and leadership to help guide and navigate the Company.
