Thomas White, Co-Founder and President/CEO
Thomas has long wanted to use his skills to contribute in some meaningful way to solutions to society’s problems, to do work that stands to make a difference in people’s lives. Now he can, given CBD’s richness of benefits, especially in helping people in recovery.
|Thomas knows all too well what it’s like to be in the grip of addiction. For more than twenty years, Thomas was a disheartened addict and alcoholic with two DUIs on his record, a drinking habit getting progressively worse, and a marriage strained to the limit because of it. He was slipping into darkness and feeling hopeless, helpless, and ashamed. It’s not that he didn’t want to stop; he couldn’t.
Thomas finally hit rock bottom and sought treatment. And even then he didn’t get sober right away, relapsing several times over the year following his stint in rehab, before finally being able to put down the drink and drugs.
Now, he’s proud to say, he has twelve years of sobriety under his belt. And it’s Thomas’ own struggle and loss that’s at the root of Exact Nature’s singular mission. Thomas always said that if there was a pill to help him with his addiction, he’d take it. It’s this hope that forms the foundation of Exact Nature Botanicals.
"My greatest hope is that that people will try these products as part of a comprehensive approach and commitment to getting sober. Addiction is a life and death issue for millions of Americans." says Thomas, before adding, "If CBD can help someone get sober, can you imagine the countless marriages, families and jobs that can be saved? This is why I'm doing this."
Professionally speaking, Thomas spent his pre-Exact Nature career in marketing communications, first at the corporate level (for Seagram’s, not ironically), then for the Peace Corps (first as a volunteer in Botswana, then as the agency’s press secretary in DC), and in recent years as the chief marketing officer for several universities.
