Fishingmoon was established out of necessity by Tom Pieper in 2017. Two years prior, Mr Pieper was diagnosed with prostate cancer and underwent surgery at City of Hope Cancer Research in Duarte, California. This event laid out the groundwork for alternative methods to maintain and enjoy life. Tom connected with a seasoned pharmaceutical team in Los Angeles and EDES products were developed, tested and eventually distributed through dispensaries in California.
After returning home to Hawaii, Mr. Pieper dedicated time and effort to educate his Ohana (extended family and friends) about the benefits of Hemp derived CBD. Less than a year after his return to Hawaii, Natural Food stores, Gyms and other business ventures inquired about Fishingmoon products and EDES Oils and Ointments became available to the public through retail stores and independent distributors in the US.
