Teenage Millionaire

Cheyene spearheaded the “Smart Drug Movement” while still a teenager in the early 1990’s by inventing and branding the original Herbal Ecstacy and over 200 other award­winning products. Herbal Ecstacy became a global phenomenon selling millions of units all over the world.

Mogul by 18

Cheyene expanded his product line to include the first massmarket herbal cigarette brand: Ecstacy Cigarettes, which sold millions and became the most successful herbal cigarette in the world. Branded the “Willy Wonka of Generation X” Cheyene has been compared to such divergent entrepreneurs as Bill Gates and P.T. Barnum, all before the age of 18.

A New Era for Herbals

In the early 2000’s Cheyene worked in conjunction with major pharmaceutical companies and Fortune 500 companies to bring the technologies and benefits of plant medicines to the mainstream. Cheyene discovered and proliferated various unique formulations and plant medicines.

Inhaling The Future

In 2000, Cheyene invented, patented and developed a revolutionary new medical drug delivery technology with the Vapir Vaporizer, spearheading the then burgeoning vaporization industry. He also authored the definitive book on the science of Vaporization, Vapor: The Art and Science of Inhaling Pure Plant Essences. The Vapir Vaporizer continues to sell millions of units worldwide. Cheyene prepared Vapir for the public markets but subsequently sold it to a private investment group in Silicon Valley in 2006.

Words of a Wise Man

As Cheyene matured into a brilliant businessman, he felt the need to share his unique insights. In 2009, Victory Films released The Serpent and the Sun: The Story of an Aztec Apprentice, a documentary film about the last living Aztec Shaman. The same year he released the book Darkness: The Power Of Illumination, where he outlined a new and highly effective self-empowerment program combining wisdom of the ancients and technologies of the future. In Darkeness, Cheyene extracts and reveals a practical philosophy known as The Law of Opposites and shows us that all answers are found in balancing life’s opposing extremes. In 2012, he published The Brain That Changes Everything, touted as the ultimate guide to accelerating your brain.


As an entrepreneur, he has founded dozens of companies, most of which succeeded. Shaahin’s career and life experiences have culminated to form his latest venture: Accelerated Intelligence, a company set to pioneer the new age of brain support supplements with Excelerol in the forefront.
