Looking for CBD developed specifically for golfers? So were we, and that’s why we developed On The Green CBD.
Our co-founder, Nick Fishenden, moved from the UK to California in 2008 to attend the Golf Academy of America. There, he obtained a degree in Golf Management and went on to start his career as a budding touring professional, playing on the Gateway Tour and attending Q-School for several years.
Sadly, a career-ending back condition and further injury resulted in Nick having to rethink his long-term future, at which point he joined the world’s largest and most established CBD company, where he eventually fulfilled the role as their International Senior Account Manager.
It was through this personal experience that he developed an in-depth knowledge of the rapidly developing CBD industry, becoming a leading advocate of the science and the benefits to be derived for amateur and professional golfers alike.
In June of 2019, Nick approached his father, Neil, with his ideas for On The Green CBD. As a career entrepreneur, having led several start-ups and decades spent developing sales operations around the world, Neil easily recognized the extraordinary potential for CBD within the golfing industry.
With Nick's knowledge of the CBD markets and Neil's experience and expertise in international investment, along with their combined passion for golf, the two are uniquely set to position On The Green CBD as the authority of CBD wellness for golfers of all ages and abilities all around the world.
On The Green CBD is excited to announce Anton Gayton as our Managing Director for our European expansion into the UK.
Born in London, Anton’s early sporting career was in athletics. He ran for Belgrave Harriers and represented Surrey at county level. Then having been introduced to golf as a teenager, Anton has continued to play competitively as an amateur.
Anton has spent decades in senior sales and leadership roles for some of the world’s largest IT companies including Compaq, HP and Oracle, which is where he and Neil met and the two have remained close friends, sharing their love for business and for golf.
More recently, Anton has been running his own company, helping teams and individuals in business and sports perform better under pressure.
Having known Neil and Nick for many years, Anton was introduced to CBD and spent time understanding the benefits and potential for golfers and decided to invest and ultimately join the On The Green team as Managing Director for the UK.
