Parkinson's Leads to CBD with Sonny's Wellness
Show Notes

Moving across the country to Oregon from New York was the necessary step for this week's guest. Tom Oliva was eager to gain access into the CBD market. For Oliva, it all started with his grandfather “Sonny,” which is where Sonny’s Wellness got its name. Sonny struggled with Parkinson’s disease for years.

In this episode, you will learn tips for moving your business to a new location, the basics and benefits of CBD,  how to get your products on the shelves at stores, and much more.

Episode #158 - "What It's Really Like to Be an Entrepreneur" has been rebranded  to "That Entrepreneur Show"

Each week, the founder of a company or brand shares what worked for them, what they needed to improve on, and all of their learning lessons along the way.

The show is stopping in Oregon to sit down with Sonny's Wellness C0-Founder, Tom Oliva. Head to and use SONNYS30 at checkout for a discount on your order.

The last two years for Tom's grandfather were especially difficult for his mental and physical health. Tom spent countless days and nights trying to help comfort Sonny, and after consulting a friend in the Biotech industry, Tom learned about Cannabidiol (CBD). After a few phone calls and a lot of research, he learned that the oil from the cannabis plant might be the key to finding relief for Sonny.

Tom immediately purchased CBD for his grandfather and noticed improvements within hours. Sonny’s muscles and joints had reduced inflammation and pain, and his appetite and mood swings were in check. Most importantly, the CBD helped Sonny sleep through the night for the first time in months. CBD made Sonny’s life significantly more comfortable before his passing, and Tom hopes to help others find how CBD can change their lives as well.

After experiencing first-hand the difference CBD can make in people’s lives, he set out to create a reliable and safe brand of products that people can come to know and trust. In 2019, when CBD was finally legalized across the U.S., he knew that it was time to make his move. He created Sonny’s Wellness, which is founded on the principles of integrity, compassion, and transparency.
