Rhett Ritter, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Purple Peake has been researching CBD for years. In high school he showed a high interest in the study of natural ways to heal and maintain the human body, which quickly led him to CBD, and Cannabis in general, as a medical alternative to help and heal many ailments. Attending forums statewide and nationally, he quickly found his calling, deciding he would dedicate his life to helping people through the use of this miracle plant.

After high school, in the fall of 2015, he began his studies at Frostburg State University, entering his freshman semester having already completed two years of collegiate courses, he found himself progressing fast and learning quickly. While there he majored in Ethnobotany, minoring in Health Sciences, and was one of the first students at the school to study Cannabis in an educational capacity. Learning about the rich history of the relationship between humans and plants, he was amazed to find out how much of an important role the Cannabis plant played in the evolution of humans and vice versa.

Continuing his education outside of school he began to travel all over the country working with experts and visiting operations of all sizes. Through these connections he was able to gain insider knowledge of the industry and learn from some of the best and brightest in the field. After extensive time on the road and hands on learning in the field he felt it was time to use his knowledge, connections, and philosophies to form a company of his own, focusing in on consumers needs and wants.

His dream was realized in December of 2019 when Purple Peake opened it’s doors for the first time. Since then he has dedicated most of his time to building a global Cannabis brand where customers are treated like family and the experience is like no other.


Rhett was a strong believer in the use of Cannabis for medical purposes at an early age. One day, as an assignment in school, he was tasked with writing about a topic, related to his field of study, that interested him. This is the paper he wrote and presented in 2014 at the age of 17!

“The beauty of cannabis, the power of cannabis is in it’s variety. There are so many flavors, so many effects, medicinal and recreational. It’s a plant but is not one plant, it is thousands of plants.” -Franco Loja, Head Breeder – Greenhouse Seed Company

Most people, at least in America, will take a health course at one point or another in their school years even if not interested in a career path involving health. Some common sections of the course include drug use and effects on the body, sex and what could happen after, the bodies systems and how to take care of them. But wait, one thing left out of the curriculum for health class nationally is education about the Endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system is a sub system in our bodies that regulates all our major systems including the respiratory, circulatory, nervous, endocrine, digestive, reproductive, so on and so forth. Proper maintenance of the endocannabinoid system will lead to a greater state of health.

Cannabis, kaneh bosm in the original Hebrew (Bennet, 1996), is the only plant on earth which can supply the proper compounds to support our endocannabinoid system. A collaboration of 480 compounds and counting (Atakan, 2012), cannabis is being explored more and more every day with over 30,000 research documents published focusing on cannabis or cannabis related topics (Roskam, 2013). These compounds consist of 66 cannabinoids that have been identified, terpenes, amino-acids, vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients(Atakan, 2012) can be obtained from the cannabis plant using different methods of consumption all producing different effects and having a wide variety of health benefits (Simpson, 2013). Vitamins A-K have been found recently in perfect ratios for the human system.

Cannabis, by true definition, is a nutrient. Containing different compounds which human bodies require in order to sustain itself which are either not produced at all inside the body or is produced in minute quantities not sufficient for survival. Humans naturally produce cannabinoids, terpenes, and several other compounds only found in the cannabis plant but in only miniscule quantities. In order to fulfill the needs of the body, cannabis must be consumed by one method or another.

Lotion can be made that is infused with cannabinoids resulting in healthy skin, side-effects being softness, exfoliation, even-tone, and people staring at your beautiful arms. Made popular by modern culture, brownies can be made using a form of cannabis in which you extract the essential oils, such as THC or CBD, and then bake brownies using this ingredient which creates different effects compared to other methods of consumption. Hemp oil is a concentrated form of cannabinoids and nutrients from the flowers and leaves of the plant in which different methods are used to extract them such as using alcohol or butane and boiling off the excess liquid (Simpson, 2013).
