Gabriel Ettenson is licensed in both Colorado and New York State as a Physical Therapist. He received his Master’s degree in Physical Therapy from Columbia University in 1998. After several years in practice, Gabriel began incorporating both Western and Eastern “alternative” approaches into his treatment programs. This included meditation, yoga, and Whole Body Vibration. Eventually, he also became interested in complementary nutrition for his patients; more specifically, Hemp Foods.

In 2013, Gabriel sold his practice and moved to Colorado to focus on educating people on various ways to fight disease and prevent illness through natural means. Being in Colorado, and interested in Hemp Foods, he was fortunate enough to be introduced to Paul Benhaim. There began the initial stages of building the foundation on which the Elixinol brand has been built.
