Founder of VETGardens EST. 2022

The mission I set forth was to find purpose and balance, which took me on a journey through paradise's healing gardens.

  After my time in the Navy, I was dysfunctional and without direction. This nature lead me to make some poor decisions, but there was one decision that saved me. My decision to choose cannabis as a means of healing both mentally and physically. Now, my garden brings purpose and joy which greatly improves my quality of life. As I turn a new leaf in my life, my passion and purpose has grown as well. Now, my main goal is to assist those who were in need like me. Particularly, I want to show them the light and joy cannabis has brought into my life, throughout the plant's lifecycle.

Co-Founder of VETGardens EST. 2022

 The mission I set forth is one of self-discovery in a world of kindness with my VETCommunity.

My name is Jake Williams and I’m from Lahaina, Maui. I served 15 years in the US Army with Combat Tours worldwide including; Iraq, the Asia Pacific, Cuba, and South America. I medically Retired in 2021 as a Parachute Malfunction and a bad landing gave me my 5th and final Service related TBI. I immediately wanted to replace the numerous medications I was on with something natural that allowed me to be myself. I began studying cannabis at Learn Sativa University in Florida achieving my dispensary Management certification and quickly moved to The Cannabis University graduating with a Master Growers Certification. Feel free to reach out with whatever question you have and I’d be more than happy to talk with you and point you in the right direction.
