Introducing our new Operation Enjoyable Employment Program Project.

The Creative Drill Sergeants 501(c)3 Nonprofit values the Hemp 4 Warriors Project (H4WP) mission to HELP VETERANS SUCCEED IN THE HEMP INDUSTRY. 

Transitioning service members who need economic stability have a vast array of opportunities for farming, research, employment,  entrepreneurship and more in the hemp industry as it grows. 

Our H4WP includes businesses, groups, organizations and individuals that assist our veterans transitioning into civilian life to find successful careers in the hemp industry.

Industrial hemp is grown and cultivated much differently than cannabis for recreational or medicinal use. Our H4WP focuses on Federally legal industrial hemp grown and cultivated for commercial or personal use as materials, food, fiber, oil and much more…

We utilize all 2018 Farm Bill Veteran benefits to the fullest as a TEAM!

The H4WP was originally founded by Jarrett St Amand as a means to assist veterans with success in the hemp farming industry. Mr. St Amand is a combat action disabled Marine veteran and father of two young men, Cameron and Keaton, and has been a leader in the hemp industry. Currently, he sits on the Board of Directors for the Creative Drill Sergeants (CDS) Nonprofit as our Holistic and Wellness Programs Director. He believes that Hemp farming, as well as the many other economic and healing aspects associated with the hemp industry, align with the CDS nonprofit mission.

H4WP will be expanding its mission of helping veterans to become successful hemp farmers to include the principles of the OEE Program to expand its outreach, education and vocational skills training for employment and/or entrepreneurial opportunities within the hemp industry.

Cannabis 4 Veterans Education Program

  • Lead the Veterans community in removing stigmas associated with medical cannabis and CBD.
  • Provide high-quality educational programs focusing on the peer reviewed literature available that conceptually supports the therapeutic effects of CBD and medical cannabis in the treatment of chronic and acute pain, as well as treatments for a variety of other ailments and diseases.
  • Integrate medical cannabis and CBD into our other holistic healing modalities such as, nutrition, aromatherapy, yoga & massage will demonstrate how CBD and medical cannabis can be used to enhance successful outcomes these modalities can produce when practiced appropriately.
  • Develop an exceptional, practical knowledge base on current research of medical cannabis and CBD to provide high quality educational training about legal products available to Veterans as alternatives to traditional pharmaceuticals for effective pain treatments that can replace highly addictive opiates.
  • Educate Veterans in the language of medical cannabis and CBD to increase confidence in conversations with Veterans because the Department of Veteran Affairs has not embraced CBD and medical cannabis as effective healing modalities or alternatives to traditional western medicine. CDS feels it is the responsibility of its holistic healing mission to provide as much education and legal access to these alternatives.
  • Learn as an organization how to broach the topic of medical cannabis and CBD with Veterans who may not appear open-minded because they are not yet aware of or have been misled about medical cannabis and CBD through high-quality educational information that demonstrates their healing benefits.
  • Increase Veteran understanding & appropriate application of the various medical cannabis and CBD forms and their modes of administration to heal Veterans.

Vetanicals will be a CDS H4WP “White Label” product line name used for the manufacturing of botanical and hemp products made by, and for, veterans. Manufacturers can develop and produce their botanical and hemp products under the Vetanicals name to assist nonprofits to fundraise and help alleviate the discomforts many veterans suffer by augmenting the use of, or removing the need for, opiate pain medication. The CDS Vetanicals product line will help heal veterans and train them in product development, production, marketing, sales, and an overall understanding of the business.
