Dr. McGinn’s extensive background and his unique areas of expertise make him one sweet partner to have in the medical cannabis and hemp industry. Tom McGinn currently serves as the Senior Health Advisor and Director of Food, Agricultures and Veterinary Readiness Response for the federal government. He’s worked on advisory boards to medical cannabis supply firms, has served as an advisor to medical cannabis start-ups, and even founded his own start-up, VetXcel, which provides medical services to the veterinary community. His distinct blend of expertise in the medical cannabis and veterinary industries makes him a veritable “guru” in the art of providing stellar and delicious CBD veterinary products, and we at Hive are excited and honored to call him a partner.
Dr. McGinn’s extensive knowledge-base began at NC State, where he received a plethora of distinguished honors and awards for his academic pursuits in veterinary medicine, emergency management, and animal response, and served as an adjunct professor. In his career as a veterinarian, Dr. McGinn founded VetXcel while working to advise other medical research companies in their work on diabetes, advanced knee surgical techniques, and wound healing. Before attending vet school, he operated a diary farm for many years. He also knows a thing or two about agriculture and emergency medical response: Dr. McGinn has served as a Medical Advisor at FEMA and a subject matter expert in public health, food, and agriculture at the Department of Health Services. During the September 11th attack, Dr. McGinn worked at Ground Zero as Deputy Commander for the National Disaster Medical System’s Veterinary Medicine Assistance Team, ensuring the health and safety of both people and animals directly impacted by the attack.
He’s a brilliant and dedicated partner and a passionate advocate for both human and veterinary health. Today, Dr. McGinn lives on a farm in Maryland, pursuing and protecting the well-being of pets and livestock, and promoting better health among his neighbors. He’s no stranger to loss: Dr. McGinn watched a brother succumb to opioid and alcohol abuse complications. He recognizes that understanding and compassion are needed in all things: in medicine, in agriculture, in cannabis-product manufacture, and in baking. He’s the expert you’d trust to have your pets’ best interests at heart, and at Hive we think having him as a partner is pretty sweet. You can get the same treats for your pets here at Hive as this trusted vet Dr. McGinns does.
