Guy was a co-founder of CDA Health, a Gold Coast-based medical cannabis wholesale distributor and health service provider.

Since 2018, CDA Health expanded with a chain of medical clinics to enable thousands of patients to access medicinal cannabis by prescription where clinically appropriate. CDA Health eventually merged with Cronos Australia (Now Vitura Health).
Vitura Health also operates Burleigh Heads Cannabis, which is a licensed medical cannabis import/export distributor and the owner of the CanView online product ordering and management platform for manufacturers, pharmacists, and prescribers.
