Hemp Depot provides hemp and CBD oil products, seed and clones
Hemp Depot, a provider of hemp CBD oil products, seed and clones, today hired Jeff Trujillo as its vice president of sales and marketing and Dustin Seifried as its lead scientist and new product and extraction director to its growing team.
In his new role as VP, Trujillo will focus on further expanding Hemp Depots wholesale and retail reach with a new inside sales organization. Additionally, Trujillo will develop Hemp Depot’s affiliate marketing program and create and oversee its internal marketing team. Trujillo has a history growing sales teams in rapidly evolving industries such as telecommunications and pharmaceutical for brands including Verizon, NTT Communications, Pfizer, Baer and more.
In Seifried's new role, he will focus on advancing the quality, purity and scientific sophistication of Hemp Depot’s products.
Seifried is a published scientist with notable work in Nature.com’s scientific report, "Contrasting Roles of Cannabidiol as an Insecticide and Rescuing Agent for Ethanol-induced Death in the Tobacco Hornworm" and an additional research report pending publication on the use of CBD to alleviate alcohol-induced stress.
Previously, Seifried worked Disney World’s EPCOT greenhouse and aquaponics program as a research and design chemist for baby food and beverages; and at Atkins, where he managed all instrumentation for Atkin’s products.
“Trujillo and Seifried are both incredibly valuable additions to the Hemp Depot team as we continue to scale and see tremendous growth due to our unique combination of value and purity,” says Andy Rodosevich, CEO and co-founder of Hemp Depot. “Their roles are fundamental to continuing Hemp Depot’s growth as one of the largest providers of hemp-based CBD in the United States, and their unique experience will be a great benefit to everyone in our organization.”
