WelCel Founders are Pioneers of CBD

The Faces of CBD in Fort Worth

Reprinted from Fort Worth Magazine (February 2021)

With over 40 years of public service between them, husband and wife pair, Dr. Lisa Gardner and Trey Phillips, founders of Thrive Apothecary and WelCel by Dr. Lisa Gardner, have spent their professional lives committed to improving their community. As a board-certified and surgically trained physician, Dr. Gardner spent 15 years in corporate medicine as one of North Texas’ most sought-out OBGYNs and surgeons. Dr. Gardner made the bold choice to close that chapter in her life, firmly believing that the philosophy behind the one-size-fits-all corporate health care model did not square with her vision for patient care.

Together, Dr. Gardner and Trey, a highly decorated SWAT officer and retired sergeant with Forth Worth Police Department, have become leading voices in the cannabis, hemp and CBD sphere. Thrive Apothecary and WelCel are founded on years of research and medical understanding, the only truly physician-founded and -owned CBD companies in Texas. Sourcing premier, full-spectrum CBD hemp oil products, rigorously vetted, and independently tested by third-party labs – Dr. Gardner and Trey provide trusted products designed for those seeking a healthy, holistic lifestyle.

Trey and Dr. Gardner share a passion for innovation and leadership – sharing their story and enthusiasm for CBD with tens of thousands of people – their story even capturing national attention. Their journey as advocates have taken them all the way to the steps of the State Capitol in Austin to lobby on behalf of hemp legislation and medical cannabis reform.

Many CBD producers are formulating products that are, at best, weak and mislabeled formulas, and at worst, dangerous ones containing toxic components like pesticides, molds, and even heavy metals. This couple is dedicated to providing safe and effective products to the community they love. Thrive carries only the very best CBD hemp oil products the industry has to offer. Dr. Gardner and Trey invest in third-party testing for every product sold in the expertly curated boutique. WelCel by Dr. Lisa Gardner provides reliable, double-lab third-party tested, full spectrum CBD hemp oil that is guaranteed to be non-GMO, vegan, mold-free, pesticide-free, and free from heavy metals. Years in the making, Dr. Gardner’s unique formulation maximizes the benefits with three key added ingredients: turmeric, ginger and peppermint, creating an enhanced ‘entourage effect.’ WelCel products are enjoyed by consumers all over the U.S. Combining modern science, medical knowledge, and plant-based health, Thrive Apothecary and WelCel are Fort Worth’s premier, holistic wellness solutions.
