We are the ButterstuPHD Family. From left to right, Darshon Haines, Scott Hess, and Joshua Rydberg.
Darshon Haines began his career unassumingly at a Taco Bell in Akron, OH. He initially hated the kitchen as he aspired to be a CAD designer. It was a boring summer job that birthed a hidden passion for the culinary excellence. After spending 7 years working for Chi Chi's Mexican Restaurant, starting in the dish pit and working his way up to line cook, he had found his life's goal. That humble beginning led him to various private country clubs and restaurant chains throughout the country. While working at Firestone Gold & C.C. he earned the title of Best New Chef of NE Ohio '98. From there he traveled and worked in the SW United States, where he discovered the culinary delight of Hatch Chili's and traditional southern cooking, all the way up to the Pacific NW where he discovered the simplicity of farm to table working as a Corporate Chef for Holiday Retirement. He is deeply rooted in Oklahoma and has been here for the last 16 years. His wife and five children are his inspiration and driving force behind his work to heal the body and soul with food. The tragic loss of his father in 2016 to cancer led him into the medical cannabis industry.
Unfortunately, in April 2020 we lost a member of our team, but his spirit and amazing recipes live on in our kitchen. Joshua Rydberg started in the dish pit of McDonald's the day he turned 15. Over the years he has worked his way up to Executive Chef, adhering to the lesson plan he studied at the school of hard knocks. He has cooked his way across Nebraska, Colorado, Washington, New Mexico and finally came to rest in the great state of Oklahoma, bringing with him the amazing cultural and culinary delights of each region he worked. Joshua has worked and was mentored by some of the best chefs in the world. Joshua finally came to rest in our beloved Oklahoma 15 years ago and his passion for helping people has brought him into the cannabis industry, with a fire to help those who are struggling.
Scott Hess has called Oklahoma home for the last 13 years. Working as an accountant and tax specialist he was lucky enough to meet Joshua and Darshon and get on this journey with them. As a business/tax expert he is lending his full support to Joshua and Darshon in hopes that they get to help a lot of people.
ButterstuPHD is truly dedicated to helping the patients of Oklahoma. Cannabis is a great medicine and can help a vast number of people. We truly believe in it.
