Mr. Leon van der Linde, CEO


Leon Van Der Linde is the CEO of Canbigold, a pharmacologist who holds Honours and Master’s degrees in Pharmacology. This Academic background gave him the insight to understand the importance of Pharmacokinetics more specifically the bioavailability concept.

He realised that many of the known herbal extract medication lack sufficient efficacy due to low bioavailability. In-depth research pointed to various plant extracts which active ingredients’ can be potentiated by increasing the bioavailability through inhalation.

This led to 10 new patents in the last 18 months which treats numerous medical conditions adequately at lower concentrations.  

This Research& Development was applied to Cannabis for medicinal use which significantly reduced the side-effects of prolonged Cannabis usage.
