– Our Story –

Our CBD Oil journey began in 2013 when we started noticing a buzz about CBD oil products in chronic pain communities on social media. Something about CBD oil was different from other supplements and products. CBD oil seemed to be working for more people than anything we had seen discussed before.

The popularity of CBD oil products continued to increase. We noticed that there was a lack of reliable, trustworthy information about CBD oil available to consumers. We also noticed people being taken advantage of by scammers, multi-level marketing salespeople and unscrupulous companies.

So we set out to change the landscape of the CBD oil industry – to put power in the hands of the people who are just looking for some relief. Our mission is to educate consumers and empower them to make their own informed decisions about these products.
