“I am not a good enough salesman to sell a mediocre product. Our philosophy as a company, no matter what we’re making, we want to find a way to make it better. If we don’t, someone else will.” – Eli Callaway
We are a passionate foursome who have learned a lot about golf and golfers, and we’ve shared in the torture as well.
And golf is like life. Both are anxiety and stress provoking, produce pain, and teach the importance of resilience. Golf and life require the development of a sense of calm and focus, and a desire and commitment to improve.
We believe that cannabinoids (chemicals derived from the hemp plant) can improve cognitive function and focus, produce a calming, relaxant and anti-anxiety effect, and alleviate pain through their potent anti-inflammatory properties.
The focus of PinHigh CBD is PURITY, QUALITY AND POTENCY, while providing maximum VALUE for our clients.
Pin High CBD’s mission is transparency; to create the highest quality products while exceeding our customer’s expectations, in order to develop long term relationships.
Pure products. Integrity driven. In search of excellence.
Michael J. Cohen
President and Founder
Michael J. Cohen is a retired Vascular Surgeon, and an avid golfer whose game suffered while he was working, never taking Wednesday afternoons off. He began his career in the golf industry at the age of 10 as a caddie at the Acacia Country Club in Cleveland and has been involved in golf ever since. Dr. Cohen was Chairman of Champions for Children for nearly a decade, the major charitable event for the Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children and Women, developing a close and cherished relationship with the King, even being on a first name basis: Mr. Palmer and Doc..
In 1990 he founded Inside Right LLC, a unique golf-themed note card company that featured an Arnold Palmer collection.
Since retiring from performing surgery 10 years ago, he has been a consultant in the healthcare industry, and is playing more and generally better golf. With age, he became aware of the need for the potential performance-enhancing effects of CBD, and equally important, their pain
relieving ability. His goal for Pin High CBD was to create a different kind of company, with the highest quality products and transparency.
Michael is the President and co-Founder of Pin High CBD. If you have any questions about the use of CBD, he will personally strive to answer all questions at doc@PinHighCBD.com.
