The Güd
tymz story

We’ve got something for everyone.

One of the best things about cannabis is the social aspect—sharing the experience with friends. But for a long time, edibles have been plagued by slow onset times and inconsistent, unpredictable, overly long-lived effects that are less than ideal for social gatherings. Who wants to be at a party and be offered an edible that takes 90 minutes or more to kick in and then lasts for hours and hours, long past when you’re ready to go home?

Güd Tymz was born out of our President and Co-Founder Michael Visher’s realization that in order for edibles to work well in most social situations, they needed to kick in quickly and deliver a predictable experience that lasts for a reasonable amount of time. So he set out to create an edible that could do just that.

In 2018, Michael joined forces with biochemist Dr. Audrey Shor to tackle the problems of slow-acting, inconsistently dosed cannabis edibles. Over many months of research and development, they successfully produced a wholly new, water-soluble cannabis formulation capable of powering truly fast-acting cannabis edibles and revolutionizing the edibles market. From there, Michael and Audrey dove head first into developing fun, novel edibles infused with their proprietary solution and designed to work perfectly in most any social setting. Combining pharmaceutical-grade delivery technology with confectionary chemistry, Güd Tymz was born.

With dedicated attention to the highest quality ingredients and the most sophisticated processing techniques, Audrey and Michael launched Güd Tymz Cannabis-Infused Gelatin Shots in 2021 in Denver, Colorado, followed shortly by Güd Tymz Java Shots. Both products are currently available throughout the Colorado market, and will soon be launching in recreational markets nationwide.

our founders

Our Co-Founders Michael Visher and Dr. Audrey Shor are longtime friends who are serious about their life’s passions. Visher has dedicated himself to mastering a command of knowledge for every aspect of the cannabis industry, and today he carries the secrets to blending the best innovations to shake up current market trends. Dr. Shor is driven by science, blending biochemistry, epidemiology and ecological research studies to pursue new breakthroughs in cannabinoid chemistry.

A kayaking trip with the kids to search for the mermaids of Florida’s Weeki Wachee, a devotion to learning more, and the love of solving mental puzzles led to a spirited discussion of the challenges of cannabinoids on a molecular level. With this conversation, Decarb Factor and later, Güd Tymz, started to take shape.
