Meet the Edna's Unbaked Team
Bryan Scogins - Owner
I grew up in Burleson, Texas, and graduated from Burleson High School in 2002. Shortly after high school, I got into banking starting as a teller and ending at Bank of America as a Mortgage Loan Officer. I quit banking at the very beginning of 2013 and opened up Burleson Vapor (Electronic Cigarette Store) to help others, as well as myself to quit smoking cigarettes. My son had lung surgery when he was very young, which left him very sensitive to the cigarette smoke. I wasn’t even able to smoke outside and come back in without setting off an asthma attack. After quitting smoking, myself, I wanted to help others get off the detriment of cigarettes.
In early 2017, I started hearing about CBD. At first, I was skeptical, especially with the stigma surrounding the plant here in the south. The more research I did, the more I started seeing the benefits. I was diagnosed with OCD and Anxiety when I was 18, but I hated the side effects of all the pills. I decided to give CBD a chance with an open mind, and I haven’t turned back. I get the same results as I did with the prescriptions, but with no side effects! I couldn’t believe it, and honestly still can’t believe it. It has helped me, my wife, and even my son (who is now 8 years old) with his ADD/Anxiety. After seeing the results, I started looking into opening a store, as I wanted to help others in similar situations, who were looking to go all natural. I knew I wanted a retail store that specialized in only CBD, that way we can focus on helping each individual’s needs, so we opened Edna’s Unbaked on January 1st, 2018, next door to my vape store.
My favorite part is hearing the success stories from our customers. The fact we are able to help relieve some of their symptoms - whether it be pain, anxiety, insomnia, etc. - makes everything worth it. Having customers come back in and tell us how much CBD has helped them is so rewarding, and we hope you’ll be the next success story!

I started working at Edna’s Unbaked alongside Bryan on January 1st, 2018. I have seen the amazing things that CBD can do first hand and strive to help share my knowledge and personal experience with it as much as I can.
In early 2017, I’d been suffering from excruciating back pain every day for months before finally booking a doctor’s appointment. I walked out of the doctor's office with a fresh diagnosis of arthritis, with the news of a herniated disc in my spine being the cherry on top. I was prescribed many different pain medications, none of which really helped to alleviate any pain. Not only was this medication ineffective, I was also worried about the long-term side effects of all the pills I had to take just to be able to sit comfortably. So, I began to look for other options, hoping I’d find something, anything that would help. It was then I’d found out about CBD and its many benefits. I had heard stories from friends and read other stories online about how it helped relieve the pain of back injuries worse than my own, and at this point I was willing to try anything. To my surprise, it not only took away the pain in my back, it has also been the only thing to alleviate my sciatic pain.
Since then, I have been a firm believer in CBD; it’s given me the ability to function every day without the pain in my back deterring me. It’s been such a positive journey for me, and I hope to share my personal experience with all of you. My days here have been and will continue to be a learning experience for me, made better by all the different stories told by so many different people that have successfully found a natural alternative to prescribed medication. To hear such positivity is incredibly heartwarming and makes me all the happier to work here.
