Helping you Explore and Discover the Unknown is our passion. Meet the Team that makes it possible:
PACKAGING TECH & DELIVERY REP
As a East coast native, cannabis has always been a taboo subject for me. That’s why working with Periodic edibles has been an enlightening experience, where I have learned the true benefits of cannabis. Being a newcomer to THC, our Balance CBD caramel helped ease me into some of the possible effects, and opened the door to new possibilities for different experiences. Having a consistent and reliable product eased my mind and eliminated the psychological side effects of experimenting with cannabis.
If you’re an action sports adrenaline seeker like me, then you’ll understand that cannabis can be effective for not only elevating the experience, but also for recovering and recharging afterward. When I discuss our effects-focused caramels with you, I understand that it’s more than just a “high” – it’s about the complete experience. That’s why I love working for Periodic edibles, where from the top down, our caramels and formulas are approached from the perspective of optimizing every part of the journey.
PRODUCTION PROJECT MANAGER
As a creative-minded individual with a passion for conscious living, I understand the desire for an intelligently designed and honest cannabis product. That's why I focus on implementing creative innovations that improve our kitchen and packaging processes without compromising the quality and simplicity of our hand crafted caramels. I want everyone to feel good about purchasing and consuming our products.
BUTTER TECH & PACKAGING TECH
If you’re an introvert like me, you understand the importance of managing your anxiety. I’ve found that cannabis helps me to open up and connect with others when dosed correctly. That’s why I focus on crafting consistently dosed butter and carefully packaging our caramels. It’s important to me that you always have an enjoyable and repeatable cannabis experience.
With a background in the culinary arts, I have always yearned for creative ways to express myself. Within that desire I have learned that unbridled creativity can lead you to disastrous concoctions. Combining the rigors of science and the freedom of creativity, I take pride in delivering a cannabis product that is consistent and delicious while still displaying the heart and soul that we all put into our work everyday.
As a meditator, I utilize cannabis to activate a sense of presence within my life. The effects of cannabis help me with a variety of tasks; whether it’s teaching a yoga class or lovingly playing with my newborn child Artemis. I ensure that every caramel we produce is mindfully packaged so that your edible experience is perfect from start to finish.
I enjoy learning about everything cannabis has to offer. From growing, to processing, to consumption methods and everything in between. I like to experiment with different products to find what works best for me depending on what effect I'm hoping to achieve. I truly believe in the quality and consistency of effects that our caramels deliver - that's why I work hard to make them available to as many Oregonians as possible.
DIRECTOR OF OPERATIONS
I enjoy baking and sometimes turn those baked goods into edibles at home. Making your own edibles can be intimidating because you want to have a predictable experience. Our caramels are the perfect way to dose at-home baked goods - you can easily create 10 cookies with 5mg of THC each, or go with a stronger dose depending on your tolerance. I take pride in ensuring the reliability of dosing and effects that you experience from our edibles by managing the precise scientific processes and procedures that we use in our kitchen every day.
As a lifelong Houston Astros baseball fan, I understand that life is full of highs and lows - from 100+ loss seasons to a World Series win. I’ve personally found cannabis to be the best way to enhance those highs and push through those lows. That’s why I focus on helping you accurately predict the cannabis effects you’ll get from our caramels so that you can confidently maximize every part of your journey, whether it’s climbing mountains or conquering your daily errands.
PACKAGING TECH & BRAND AMBASSADOR
As a mother of three teens and a toddler, a wife, a pirate cosplayer, and a photographer who also suffers from anxiety, constant exhaustion, and insomnia, I know the importance of finding healthy and sustainable ways to keep up with my kids and life. This is why I have found such a passion for our caramels. Whether I'm grabbing an Active caramel to keep me going during an 8 hour high school dance competition, or our Balance CBD to keep me calm and headache-free after an exhausting week, I appreciate that I am part of a company that cultivates happiness in my own life, as well as that of our customers. I would love to help other parents find ways to incorporate cannabis into their life and fight the unjust societal stigma that comes with it.
Why Periodic edibles?
Our founder Wayne Schwind’s college background was heavily focused on Science & Chemistry. With that background, he decided to base the company, products, and brand around “The Science of Cannabis”. The more Wayne learned about caramels, the more he realized it takes a high focus on chemistry to make good caramels, especially while scaling to larger batches and trying to keep an artisanal caramel quality. Who would have thought Wayne would eventually use his college degree to make cannabis products - we’re sure the college counselor didn’t :)
I’m in love with nature and people, and fascinated by human nature. I’m amazed everyday at how community and culture can affect, influence and evolve an individual. I believe the power of teamwork can challenge us to grow and evolve in ways that we cannot on our own.
I know this from my personal journey - the experience of building this company and team has required me to evolve into a better human being. The products we make further enhance our own quality of life, and we want to share that experience with you!
I built this company to create freedom. You could call it physical, mental, spiritual or financial freedom. The mission is to create an environment where we all have the opportunity to thrive. Unfortunately too many people work solely for survival.
I want our team to assume survival and focus on thriving. The freedom to thrive takes work and doesn’t come easy, but the opportunity to try is what we’re focused on.
The products we make and experiences we share are the oxygen to that freedom.
This is Hard to Say to you as a Customer, but here is my business philosophy…
People say “Put the Customer First”, but I disagree with that…
My philosophy is to “Put the Employee First”…
I believe doing so will create the best possible product and experience for the customer - Employees that are challenged to grow and proud of their work will deliver great products!
We’re a team of individuals making a product we ultimately want for ourselves…
We wouldn’t sacrifice our own experience, so if you’re anything like us, you can expect our best!
I’m blessed to find myself with this company and team, operating in the cannabis industry, with all the other amazing pioneers, breaking new ground.
If you’ve purchased our caramels, we greatly appreciate your business and support!
If you have any cannabis questions or feedback for us, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
