Alphagreen is the result of a love for health and wellbeing merged with a passion for technology and innovation. Founded in 2019, the company is the brainchild of Alexej Pikovsky and Viktor Khliupko.
As a proponent of using CBD to alleviate both psychological and physiological ailments, Alexej realized there was a gap in the market for trustworthy and effective CBD products that go beyond oil and vapes. His deep background in investment, finance and emerging markets was the catalyst that planted the seed that would become Alphagreen.
With this idea in mind, he reached out to an old friend and e-commerce development expert, Viktor, whose experience in tech and love of exercise and meditation made him just the man for the job. Viktor and Alexej meeting was a twist of fate in more ways than one. When Viktor saw an opportunity to work in Dusseldorf in 2013, it was a mutual friend who helped him make the move and set up his business.
The same friend would later introduce Viktor to many of Alexej’s childhood friends before later introducing the two to one another. Despite different professional and personal backgrounds, Viktor and Alexej often discussed ideas together, and finally took the plunge when they saw an opportunity that could help millions of people facing daily health concerns.
Alexej and his co-founders saw the need to help European customers access the best products in wellness and medical cannabis. Alphagreen Group operates a curated marketplace in the UK and separately imports and distributes medical cannabis to pharmacies in Germany.
