Ivan Moody, Founder and CEO of Moody’s Medicinals and Greenings
Multi-award-winning singer-songwriter. Renowned entertainer. Health and wellness entrepreneur. Substance use disorder survivor. Book author. Horror film actor. Ivan Moody, lead vocalist of internationally-acclaimed hard rock band, Five Finger Death Punch, is the founder of high-quality, all-natural full spectrum CBD company Moody’s Medicinals as well as new premium cannabis brand, Greenings.
Moody started perfecting his vocals at an early age, joining the choir at seven years old and singing in bands at the early age of 16. Following his move to Los Angeles in 2001, he joined metal band, Motograter, which won Hit Parader’s “Best Band” in 2003. Motograter’s success opened the opportunity for the group to tour alongside prominent hard rock figures Korn, Marilyn Manson, Slipknot and more. By 2005 Moody joined Five Finger Death Punch as lead vocalist, achieving rapid commercial success.
Ivan and Five Finger Death Punch have gone on to achieve 25 top hit music singles and recently broke the world record for most consecutive Mainstream Rock Airplay #1 hits (14 total) along with six gold albums, four platinum albums, and a platinum single. They now hold the record for the most #1 albums in the history of Billboard’s hard rock chart with their new album “AfterLife”.
The album came out in September 2022 and already boasts two #1 hit singles. Five Finger Death Punch frequently performs at the biggest festivals around the world and is currently bringing its massive show to arenas across America with country rockstar, Brantley Gilbert. The artists collaborated on on "Blue On Black'' in 2019 which became a global #1 hit. Five Finger Death Punch has been the recipient of countless awards, including SiriusXM Octane Music's 2014 and 2015 “Artist of the Year” and “Best Live Band” Awards, as well as the "Soldier Appreciation Award" from the Association of the United States Army.
As a direct result of Moody’s struggles with alcohol use disorder and addiction, spanning the course of his touring career, in June 2017, Moody took action and started to focus on his health and recovery. By 2019, Ivan was taking a number of pharmaceutical medications meant to help him with sobriety. However, the medications proved ineffective for Moody, causing unwanted symptoms like anxiety, loss of appetite and sleeping problems. The famed rockstar was already familiar with herbal medicine but these issues prompted him to research and start looking to CBD and THC as a powerful means to help him overcome his struggle and ultimately succeed to become sober.
Passionate about sharing what had helped him in a major way on his road to sobriety, in June of 2019, Ivan founded Moody’s Medicinals, a line of potent vegan healing full-spectrum CBD tinctures, roll-ons, pre-rolls and gummies, to provide effective holistic relief for himself, his mother and other consumers struggling to manage chronic pain and limit the use of synthetic pharmaceuticals.
The determined entrepreneur’s introductory all-natural regime replaced four out of five of his daily prescription medications and has been the driving force behind his philanthropic pursuit to help veterans, athletes, performers and those struggling with substance use disorder issues to improve their physical and mental health.
In October of 2022 Moody shared an exciting announcement with the world – the launch of Greenings by Moody’s Medicinals, a high-quality, edgy cannabis line, which features a variety of premium flower, pre-rolls, and gummies available through a partnership with Exhale Brands and Exhale Dispensary, located in Las Vegas, Nev.
Over the years, Moody has personally donated to causes dear to his heart, including the Food Recovery Network, USA Skateboarding and St. Jude's Children's Hospitals. Through Moody's Medicinals, the plant medicine advocate and his team have worked with the Special Ops Charity Network, Disabled Veterans of America, The Eagle and Badge Foundation and Veterans Cannabis Coalition.
Moody is a proud resident of Las Vegas and a devoted father.
