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 Oregon recreational license in early 2017. Since then, Wayne and his team have gotten Periodic Edibles into 150+ 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.
