The Periodic Effects Podcast focuses on the Business and Science of Cannabis. Hosted by Wayne Schwind, CEO & Founder of Periodic Edibles, a cannabis infused caramel company. This podcast takes a deeper look at the stories behind cannabis business owners, founders and executives.

Periodic Effects has partnered with Emma Chasen to bring you a one of a kind LIVE show that features a panel of cannabis professionals discussing topics on the Science of Cannabis. The shows are recorded in Portland, Oregon, in front of a Live Audience with a Q&A session at the end.
Wayne Schwind graduated with a bachelor's degree in chemical engineering from Michigan Technological University in 2010. Upon graduation he moved to Portland, Oregon, for a job in technical sales in the industrial water treatment industry. That role had a heavy focus on water chemistry and was a good primer for building a sales and general business skill set.
In 2015, Wayne left his sales position and started Periodic Edibles, a cannabis infused caramel company. After a year and a half in the medical market, Periodic Edibles received its OLCC recreational license on February 1, 2017. Since then, Wayne and his team have gotten Periodic Edibles into 100+ retail locations.
Wayne started the Periodic Effects podcast as an education platform with the goal of documenting and sharing his team's successes and struggles while learning from other Cannabis Professionals operating in the industry.
