Shivam is Awshad’s resident CBD expert and the force behind its inception. It was during his time at the University of Texas at Austin, USA that he first experienced CBD’s therapeutic properties to help manage his chronic insomnia. After college, Shivam went on to work in India’s oil and gas industry in various capacities, before deciding to explore the United States’ vibrant CBD landscape further. With a keen understanding of a booming cannabis industry, he came back to India with a vision for a holistic, homegrown cannabis lifestyle brand. That brand manifests as Awshad.
