About Mr. McGooz
As a returning Marine from the Vietnam era, Mr. McGooz was a hardworking, angry young man. From 1978 to 2007 Mr. McGooz attended college at the University of Pennsylvania studying Biology, Business, and Industrial Engineering with a focus on Time and Method Studies for Production Environments
For years Mr. McGooz suffered from extreme back pain. The VA offered him opiates, which did not agree with his system. Cannabis offered him relief with the ability to continue working. Everything changed for Mr. McGooz in 2007 when he had the back surgery he had been avoiding for years due to a bullet wound during the 1976 Lebanon evacuation and increasing scar tissue in his spine.
By being forced to sit in a wheelchair for hours on end, his mind wandered. It wandered to places he did not recall, but the images he was seeing persisted. They would not leave him, day or night. He would wake up in bed drenched in water from night sweats and nightmares. Feeling very disturbed he sought out help at the VA in Cleveland, Ohio. Eventually it became clear that he was and had been suffering from PTSD. PTSD therapy for three years was very insightful and supportive. The only other relief he could depend on was from Cannabis.
Mr. McGooz has been involved with Cannabis for years. He was a grower since the early 70’s and owner of the ﬁrst Hydroponic stores in Ohio. His hydroponic experience includes managing hectare (35 acres) under glass of hot house tomato farms.
Mr. McGooz was a featured breeder of Cannabis in Treating Yourself, an International Magazine from 2010-2013, AKA 420grower. Mr.McGooz grew, tested and journaled over 130 known breeder strains, growing himself, 12-15 strains per turnover. His strain, Mr.McGooz White Magic, was known in Europe as one of the ﬁrst Cannabis strains successfully used for migraine headaches, as reported by Marc Ball and his team in the UK.
Mr.McGooz was a VIP featured judge, along with many other reputable Master growers, at three of the four Treating Yourself International Expos in Toronto.
A combination of his love for the sciences and sitting in a wheelchair all day long sparked his interest to return to the kitchen, now wheelchair accessible, and try his hands at creation. What came to follow is now known as Mr. McGooz Products, All Natural of course!
