New Joy Organics Survey Reveals Many Americans Are Still in the Dark About CBD Oil
Awareness of the benefits of CBD oil products in the U.S. is growing, but there is still a lot more work to do. That’s according to data released today from our first “State of CBD” survey.
In March 2019, Joy surveyed more than 300 people across the U.S. about their knowledge and attitude toward CBD oil and CBD-related products. Some results were promising — more than 70% of people surveyed knew that CBD oil can help with pain and anxiety. But a shocking one in eight thought CBD oil either goes into cars or helps you get a better tan!
More importantly, when asked key questions regarding some of the common misconceptions about CBD oil, a surprising number of people answered that they simply didn’t know what the truth was. Here are some examples.
Can CBD oil cause a bad result in an employer drug screening?
Not even a third of respondents knew the correct answer: If it’s a high-quality test, THC-free CBD oil cannot cause a bad result in a drug screen.
Do CBD oil products make you high?
The good news here is that most people know the correct answer is that CBD oil products don’t get you high, but there was still a fairly significant number who either said you can get high from CBD oil or they weren’t sure.
Not sure (26.17%)
Is CBD oil addictive?
It’s clear that more education is needed here as nearly half said it was addictive or they weren’t sure.
Not sure (39.56%)
Do you need a prescription to buy CBD oil products?
Again, almost half either got the answer wrong or weren’t sure.
Is CBD from hemp legal in the U.S.?
This confusion is understandable. But while the CBD industry seems to lay in a gray area, as long as it contains less than 0.3% THC and does not claim to treat any ailments, it is legal in all 50 states.
We also asked Americans whether they had ever used CBD oil, plan to use it or would never use it. It’s promising that a full 83.8% said they either have used CBD oil or might use it in the future, while 16.2% said they would never use it.
A breakdown of the reasons given for never using CBD oil shows a lack of solid information about it.
If you don’t plan on using a CBD oil product, please explain why.
The biggest reason given for not using CBD oil products is that the respondents just didn’t feel like they knew enough information about the product and its benefits. A fairly large number, 14%, incorrectly believe that CBD products are illegal and made exclusively from marijuana. 1/4 said they just weren’t interested or didn’t feel like they needed it and 5.5% said it costs too much.
Here’s a breakdown of some of the most popular reasons given for refusing to use CBD oil.
I don’t have enough information on CBD oil. (36.2%)
I don’t need to use it/not interested. (24.4%)
It’s illegal/marijuana. (14.1%)
It’s unsafe. (8.6%)
It costs too much. (5.5%)
We hear these concerns often. While the compound CBD is found in marijuana, CBD oil is usually sourced from hemp, which has less than 0.3% THC and is legal to both grow and consume in the U.S. And while there may be misinformation that states otherwise, we have not heard any credible reports of serious negative side effects from CBD.
Fortunately, for those who are new to CBD or just need more information, Joy Organics has created an authoritative and comprehensive Guide to CBD Oil with information on the history, science and facts about the product and its benefits.
Percent saying “I would never use CBD oil products.”
Interestingly, the two age groups most suspicious of CBD oil were people over 60 AND people between 18-29. These two groups had the highest percentage of people who said they would never use it. The group most likely to use CBD oil products was in the 30-44 age range. Below is a listing of the percentage of people in each age group who said they would never use CBD oil products.
It’s impossible to know exactly why the oldest and youngest cohorts were the least likely to try CBD oil products. For the older folks, it could be lingering suspicions about the erroneous connection between CBD and marijuana. For the younger group, it’s possible that their reason for not wanting to try CBD is that they haven’t developed some of the symptoms yet that CBD may help (aches, pains, sleep problems, etc.)
Some other interesting takeaways from the survey:
Men were more likely to be suspicious of CBD oil products than women.
19.5% of men said they would never use CBD oil.
13.97% of women said they would never use CBD oil.
The geographic breakdown was very different, with people in the Mountain Zone and Mid-Atlantic zone being the most likely to use CBD and people in the southern U.S. the least likely to use it. Below is a breakdown of people who say they would never use CBD oil products by one of the nine geographic regions of the U.S.
East South Central (37.50%) AL, KY, MS, TN
West North Central (32.82%) IA, KS, MN, MO, NE, ND, SD
West South Central (36.67%) ARK, LA, OK, TX
East North Central (14.04%) IL, IN, MI, OH, WI
South Atlantic (13.89%) DE, FL, GA, MD, NC, SC, VA, DC, WV
New England (13.33%) CT, ME, MA, NH, RI, VT
Mid Atlantic (10.26%) NY, NJ, PA
Pacific (12%) AK, CA, HI, OR, WA
Mountain (5.56%) AZ, CO, ID, MT, NV, NM, UT, WY
Android users are much moresuspicious of CBD oil products than iOS users.
22.12% of Android users say they would never use CBD oil products.
10.69% of iOS users say they would never use CBD oil products.
Lastly, we asked Americans if they thought there should be more regulation of the CBD industry. While we don’t want pharmaceutical companies swooping in and knocking out the little guys through over-regulation, we do think it would be beneficial for consumers if the federal government began to institute basic regulatory measures. Making sure labels are honest would be the first step: Is the CBD content accurate? Is it truly THC free? Are there heavy metals or pesticides in these products?
Right now, most consumers simply don’t know what they’re putting in their bodies unless the company from which they purchase has opted for transparency and self-regulation. At Joy Organics, we use ISO certified third-party labs to test all of our ingredients and products. That way we know what we’re giving our customers and our customers know exactly what they’re getting. Until the government begins to regulate CBD products, we believe the only way to truly be reputable is by doing so.
Should the government regulate growing, manufacturing and ingredients found in CBD consumer products?
Not sure (30.84%)
As we’re making our way through this industry, it’s both helpful and fascinating to get an understanding of CBD from a different point of view. We may love CBD, but that doesn’t mean everyone knows what it is and the benefits it can bring! We’ll continue to work hard to bring first-rate CBD education to the table so that, even if it’s slowly, more people can begin to understand this cannabinoid and how it may impact their life.
This is for those of you who are budget-conscious; you want to get into the CBD business, but you don’t have a lot of money and you want to know how you can get started with the least amount of money invested. The least expensive way to get started is to identify an existing brand that you respect that you would want to partner with, such as Joy Organics.
Something to keep in mind is that about 80% of the brands in this industry are not companies that you would want to partner with, but there are some “golden egg” companies that you can find through research. Get a good feel for their website, read their reviews and even look into their social media pages and what their following is like.
One of the advantages of partnering with Joy Organics is that you can buy our branded products. They’re presented in nice, professional packaging and labels so you can present a reliable, reputable product that you already know is going to sell.
While there are other CBD brands to consider, you can reach out to Joy Organics at firstname.lastname@example.org if you decide to take it one step further and find out more about partnering with our brand.
To provide a little insight ahead of time, when Joy Organics sets you up as one of our wholesale partners, you’re given a unique coupon code and then you place an order. Whenever you enter in the coupon code, you get at least 50% off your order of $500 or more. For larger orders, you can get 60% or even 65% off the overall order.
You want to identify an existing brand that you trust to partner with when you’re first starting out in the CBD world. However, if you have enough money to start your own private label brand, it’s recommended to start with the most popular products first for success.
The most popular products are typically 250mg tinctures and 500mg tinctures (and more recently 10 or 25mg softgels) by the Joy Organics standards. Depending on the type of CBD product you get, the serving size will have more or less CBD. There are some bottles that have 1,000mg to 5,000mg depending on the extra strength you choose; it comes down to preference and, sometimes more importantly, price.
Tinctures available through Joy Organics are the best combination of both quality and value. The 250mg tinctures, for example, are typically the best budget-friendly option for someone to see how their body reacts to cannabidiol extract. Likewise, it’s a budget-conscious decision to start with for selling as it’s a strength many are comfortable starting out with.
Whenever those who start out with the 250mg tincture come back, though, they generally come back for the 500mg bottle instead. If their budget calls for it, most of them will buy the 500mg instead of the 250mg, typically to see if they can get an even better or more intense effect than they received with the 250mg bottle.
If you do decide to partner with Joy Organics, we recommend the most popular flavors and strengths to start with, the 250mg Tranquil Mint and the 500mg Tranquil Mint tinctures. If you’re able to go for a third product to sell, we also recommend our softgels. If you can afford four, the 10mg and the 25mg softgels are the best options.
We also have a one-ounce container of CBD salve. It’s something to put on hands for a variety of reason and is extremely popular. If you can afford another one, dog chews are also a viable option. CBD is just as helpful for man’s best friend as it is for us.
Pick a popular product that you can trust is going to sell. If you want to start out on the more affordable side, partner with an existing CBD business and sell one or multiple of their products. In order to get started inexpensively, pick the most popular products, and as you start to get sales and your profits increase, you can branch out and sell a variety of others.
In 2011, the United Nations General Assembly adopted a resolution that recognized happiness as a “fundamental human goal.” This resolution has led to a movement of people from 160 countries recognizing that real progress is about increasing human happiness and not just increasing the economy.
At Joy Organics, we couldn’t agree more, which is why we’re overjoyed to celebrate the International Day of Happiness.
Often, happiness is something you create. Looking to bring a little more happiness into your own life?
Check out the following habits of the happiest people on earth.
10 Habits of Highly Happy People
1. They Practice Gratitude
Positive psychology research suggests that gratitude is strongly linked to greater happiness. Not only does practicing gratitude lead to more positive emotions (it’s pretty difficult to be negative when you’re thankful), but can also lead to better physical health and overall feelings of wellbeing.
Researchers from the University of Miami have been studying the scientific nature of gratitude for years in what’s known as the “Research Project on Gratitude and Thankfulness.” Some of the major discoveries they’ve found in looking at various studies on gratitude and happiness include:
People who keep gratitude journals on a weekly basis exercised more, had fewer physical symptoms, felt better about their lives as a whole and were more optimistic about the coming week than those who journaled about negative or neutral life events.
Individuals who keep gratitude lists are more likely to make progress towards important personal goals.
Gratitude intervention with young adults resulted in higher reported states of positive alertness, enthusiasm, energy, determination and attentiveness.
Being grateful simply makes you a happier person overall. And at Joy Organics, we believe there is always something to be grateful for.
2. They Get Adequate Exercise
Did you know that getting a little exercise can go a long way when it comes to increasing happiness? A 2018 review highlighted that getting just 10 minutes of exercise a day or working out as little as once a week can make us happier people overall. Part of it has to do with the fact that exercise (even in small amounts) releases GABA, a neurotransmitter that decreases anxiety and improves mood.
Not big on fitness? Start small. Take a brisk 10-minute walk around the block, try some gentle yoga, take a class at your local gym once a week, dance, volunteer to walk dogs at your local shelter. Once you start, not only will you find your happiness starts to increase but that your body will even begin to crave physical activity.
3. They Do Good to Others
One of the biggest habits of happy people is that they give openly to others. Extending kindness to others not only generates happiness for someone else but also works like magic to increase your own levels of happiness.
One study found that spending money on others has a more positive impact than spending it on yourself. While money can’t buy happiness, buying things for others can increase your own happiness.
Doing good to others is possible even if you don’t have a dime to spare. Smile at others, compliment your cashier, write a thank-you note, volunteer at a local shelter or senior center, or bake cookies for your neighbor. There are plenty of ways to do good to others, which is basically the same as doing good to yourself.
4. They Surround Themselves With Positive People
It is really, really difficult to be happy when surrounded by negative people. Happiness increases when shared, but so does negativity. When you surround yourself with others who are genuinely enthusiastic and positive, it has a ripple effect, causing you to feel more inspired, creative and confident.
Remember, you have a choice of who you surround yourself with and who you give your energy to. If you’re hanging out with Negative Nancy or Debbie Downer all day, it’s going to be pretty much impossible to feel positive emotions. Embrace the positive peeps and put as much distance between yourself and the haters as possible. You’ll find your happiness begins to increase exponentially.
5. They Put in the Effort to Be Happy
Happy people don’t just wake up happy every morning. They’re human and experience the same emotions as everyone else. They simply put in the effort to be happy each and every day. Happy people understand that in order to remain happy, they must observe their emotional state and actively pursue a state of happiness.
We all know how easy it is to get sucked into the mundane details of life. Rather than focus on the monotony of every day, happy people put the effort into seeing past the routine structure and assess exactly what they need to do to not to get stuck in a negative mindset.
6. They Focus on Meaningful Interactions
Here is one habit of highly happy people that makes a huge difference. Focusing on meaningful interactions can be life-changing. Small talk is unavoidable, but it shouldn’t be the focus of your regular one-on-one conversations.
Happy people engage in meaningful conversations and engage with other people on a deeper level. They avoid gossip or speaking negatively about others, focusing instead on creating a deeper emotional connection and uplifting those they surround themselves with.
Make sure that when you do spend time with others that the interactions you have are meaningful. Engage in conversation that is uplifting, makes you think and puts the world in a different perspective than simple small talk.
7. They Focus on the Positive
Life is full of ups and downs for everyone. Happy people are not immune to bad things happening to them. They simply choose to focus on the positive. Rather than complain about the way things are or the way they think things should be, they choose to be thankful for what they have and what the situation they’re currently in is trying to teach them.
While it’s not possible to always remain positive (and there is something to be said about embracing negative emotions), focusing on the positive when the going gets rough will ultimately lead to increased levels of overall happiness.
This is also true for the opposite. Focusing on the negative will only lead to increased negativity. If you continue to expect the worst or focus on the worst, you’re just going to keep getting more of the same. Happy people focus on the positive, even when there doesn’t seem to be anything positive to focus on.
8. They Live in the Present Moment as Much as Possible
According to the Buddha, “the secret of health for both body and mind is not to mourn for the past, worry about the future, or anticipate troubles, but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly.”
This is something happy people understand. Life isn’t a dress rehearsal. It’s happening now and all the tiny moments that make up your life will one day be gone. Doing your best to live in each moment as it passes can have a significant impact on the happiness you experience overall.
Want to be more happy? Do your best to enjoy each moment as it passes. Over time, these little moments are the times that add up to your entire life. One day these will be the memories you look back upon. Enjoy each moment and we can guarantee that you’ll enjoy life that much more.
9. They Meditate
Did you know that a regular meditation practice could literally rewire the structure of your brain? Starting each day with just 5-10 minutes of meditation can literally be life-changing. Research shows, for example, that a regular meditation practice actually shrinks the amygdala, the fight or flight area of the brain associated with anxiety, fear and stress. This leads to decreased stress and anxiety, which in turn leads to increased happiness.
Other brain regions meditation has a positive effect on include the left hippocampus (responsible for learning, memory and cognition), the temporal parietal junction (responsible for empathy, compassion and perspective), the posterior cingulate (associated with mind wandering and self-relevance) and an area of the brainstem known as the Pons (where many regulatory neurotransmitters are produced).
Looking to increase your level of happiness? Try starting out your day with 5-10 minutes of meditation instead of scrolling through social media. We’ve personally found a daily meditation practice has been an exponential aspect of increasing our own happiness.
10. They Embrace a Growth Mindset
A growth mindset is the belief that you’re in control of your own ability and that you can learn and improve. While a fixed mindset embraces the idea that you are who you are and you cannot change, a growth mindset embraces the idea that you are in control of your destiny. A growth mindset adopts the concept that you can always improve.
According to Carol Dweck, world-renowned Stanford psychologist who has dedicated decades of research to better understanding achievement and success, “In a growth mindset, people believe that their most basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work — brains and talent are just the starting point. This view creates a love of learning and a resilience that is essential for great accomplishment.”
At Joy Organics, we believe happiness is best when shared with others. We hope these common habits of highly happy people resonate with you and are something you can implement into your own life if you haven’t already. In celebration of National Happiness Day, we wish you all the joy in the world.
More Americans have legal access to CBD and cannabis-related products than ever before — but the cannabis plant is still a schedule I drug on a federal level. Hemp has become legal to grow across the nation, so many people who are still required to stay THC-free or take drug tests as a stipulation for employment have come to rely on hemp-derived CBD. In some states, drug tests are a legal prerequisite before receiving state assistance like unemployment or food stamps.
At-home drug tests are easy to find and a far more affordable option than higher-end lab tests, costing anywhere from $5 to $30. If your work or benefits depend on the results of a drug test, though, you likely want more reassurance than what the outdated convenient store drug tests can provide.
The reality is that even when you take THC-free CBD, store-bought drug tests may result in a positive THC result. Here’s why.
Ways You Could Fail
There are just a few possibilities as to how you could fail a drug test, with the main reason being at-home drug tests are just not sophisticated enough to differentiate between the two cannabinoids. THC is the psychoactive component in cannabis plants, while CBD is the non-psychoactive alternative.
THC and CBD Similarities
Even though there are over 100 other cannabinoids, CBD and THC are what the receptors in the body interact with most; the other cannabinoids simply enhance or intensify CBD and THC’s effects. While there are some stark differences between CBD and THC, at-home drug tests may pick them up as cannabinoid substances all the same. Fortunately, the differentiation is established for more sophisticated drug tests, such as the ones used for workplaces.
Inaccuracies for Tests
Another possibility for why you might fail is that the drug test simply wasn’t accurate in general. For example, one of the most popular cannabis-specific drug tests, First Check, has almost half of its reviews on Amazon as one-star. People’s results are often inconsistent with the results they got for other tests taken, usually for their jobs. Whether they popped a false positive or a false negative the first time at home, the results were different for the more accurate tests at work.
Trace Amounts of THC
Another possibility is the Occam’s razor for the issue. Unless the company you’re buying from is 100% THC-free with the lab results to back it up, there is a maximum amount of 0.3% THC allowed for every CBD product. If customers take particularly large servings of that product, those trace amounts of THC can add up to trigger a positive on a drug test.
Why Store-Bought Tests Aren’t Working Anymore
Many people use store-bought drug tests as a preventative measure. Parents, for example, might drug tests their teenage children if they suspect they’re under the influence. Likewise, others worried about testing positive on a drug test at school, work or for legal matters may run to store-bought tests just to make sure they’re in the clear. Unfortunately, with the sheer inaccuracies of many tests, they’re not a very good preventative measure.
On the contrary, they do more harm than good by creating false negatives or false positives. Imagine a teenager who has always stayed away from drugs getting a positive on a store-bought drug test and being dealt consequences all because the drug test itself is inaccurate. Or worse, imagine someone trying to get a job they’ve really been vying for. They take a store-bought test to make sure they’re in the clear and show a negative, but when they get to the job and take the more accurate lab tests, they reveal a positive result.
What Needs to Change
Store-bought drug tests and convenience store results are behind in the times. Unfortunately, popular drug test brands that sell to the mass market haven’t yet caught up with the most recent laws regarding CBD. As a result, they haven’t changed their tests to search for just THC. Instead, finding any cannabinoid in the body might set off a positive result.
With hemp-derived CBD legal across the country and CBD products running rampant in popularity, store-bought drug test brands have to change their formula or continue to be criticized for their inaccuracies.
Don’t rely on a drug test you can buy at a convenience store or grocery store if it comes down to your job, benefits, children or something else near and dear to you. You can trust in Joy Organics’ CBD products and lab results to ensure you don’t have any THC in your system and you can feel confident that the store-bought test is not accurate enough to decide your fate.
There’s a reason employers don’t use store-bought drug tests to determine the results for whether you keep your job/benefits or not. At-home drugs tests are simply not as sophisticated or as accurate as lab tests.
CBD’s popularity is on the rise with no sign of stopping, but this rise has been recent overall. Until now, at-home drug test brands have gotten away with not developing a differentiation between the two cannabinoids because CBD wasn’t widely available to the public.
Now, at-home drug testing brands will need to improve their qualitative window instead of just testing for THC. Until then, trust that a store-bought drug test may not be accurate, and you shouldn’t rely on it if you’re trying to test negative for a more serious test.
The popularity of CBD has given rise to new ways to use this diverse cannabinoid, including some truly fun and exciting edibles. Most of the time, people will take their CBD by way of tincture, softgels or vaping. While these methods are fine and can be easy to use, they can often taste bad or use a device you might not own, like a vape pen. This is where CBD candies come in!
Edibles are a great way to use CBD because they are very easy to take (you just eat them) and can give you a very specific amount of CBD whenever, wherever. When using a vaporizer or tincture, it can be relatively difficult to measure how much CBD you’re taking. Edibles come with specified amounts of CBD in each piece and package, giving you a wide range of options for tasty treats that are tailored to your needs!
Here is a list of the top 10 best CBD candies to satisfy that sweet tooth!
The staple of all infused candies, whether it be alcohol, cannabis or CBD, is the gummy bear, so that’s the first on our list! The Chill Gummies gummy bears are a delicious CBD edible that has an assortment of flavors in each pack consisting of apple, orange and blue razz with a little over 10mg of CBD per piece. They’re perfect for use right before bed and do a great job of relieving some of those aches and pains too.
Hard candies are becoming a popular choice for people who want an efficient method of using CBD like a tincture but even tastier. This has a lot to do with the fact that hard candies are meant to stay in the mouth for a few minutes, which allows the CBD to be absorbed slowly under the tongue and through the mucous membrane in the mouth.
These CBD hard candies come in 4 different flavors that will knock your socks off: Blue Raspberry, Caramel Apple Pie, Cartoon Cereal Crunch and Pomegranate Lemonade. Each bag has 60mg of CBD and four pieces per bag, giving you a dairy-, gluten-, nut- and soy-free treat that literally anyone can enjoy!
If you’re looking for a classic type of gummy that just tastes good and has the CBD you want, then look no further. The CBD gummies by Kats Botanicals are a sweet, gourmet treat that suit the lifestyle of everyone from the college student to the businessman.
Each bag has ten gummies and each gummy contains 10mg of CBD with the option for two classic flavors: Watermelon and Blue Raspberry — perfect for a hike or just relaxing with some friends.
Everyone loves lollipops and now you can grab one with 10mg of CBD! These tasty little sweets are some of the best available on the market. Made with CBD isolate, these suckers are powerful and a great way to unwind after a long day.
Kratom CBD makes these lollies in 6 “chronically” delicious flavors: Strawberry, Tangie, Blue Dream, Lemon OG, Gushin’ Grape and OG. You’ll be sure to savor these guys!
We have gummy bears, worms, snakes and now froggies! Green Roads created a frog-shaped gummy that you can get in a bunch of different flavors, like grape and green apple, and even carry sour versions! They come in:
Chocolate is the most important food group…well, not really, but whenever there’s a chance to add something amazing to chocolate, like CBD, you end up with a delicious candy bar that will turn anyone into a chocoholic! This is what Lulu’s Chocolates did and their vegan, raw, organic chocolate is a melt-in-your-mouth treat that will make you want to eat the whole thing.
Lulu’s Chocolate Bar has 80mg of full spectrum CBD. It’s divided into 4 pieces, each containing 20mg of CBD.
Probably one of the most interesting and unique of all the candies on this list, the CBD Salt Water Taffy is a fun way to take CBD. They have amazing flavors including Bergamot Orange, Strawberries & Cream, Extra Dark Chocolate, Passion Fruit, Sea Salt Caramel and Peppermint. Each bag has 400mg of CBD with twenty pieces of taffy, each containing 20mg of CBD per piece. These aren’t your granddaddy’s salt water taffies!
Another classic gummy bear candy with a CBD twist, the Medix CBD gummy bears look just like the real thing but have CBD infused into them! These yummy gummies come in a 100mg and 300mg option. Each bear contains 10mg of CBD and comes in an assortment of flavors!
Silky smooth and velvety delicious is all that can be said about this CBD-infused delicacy. Grön is a company that specializes in gourmet CBD-infused foods and their 100mg milk chocolate bar not only tastes amazing, but each bar is hand-crafted and fair trade, making this candy bar one of the best and friendliest on the market.
This gummy tells you everything you need to know about it right in its name — this is not pot and won’t get you high (like everything on this list) but it is a delicious gummy. It comes in a tasty strawberry flavor and each container has 30 gummies and contains 300mg of CBD/10mg per piece. This is a vegan gummy that even the snobbiest of foodies will love!

“People on CBD related FB pages have messaged me asking what company I decided to go with. Of course I tell them Joy Organics! We all had miserable experiences that ranged from not receiving all items ordered to lackluster customer service. I couldn’t take it any longer so I did a Google search and that’s when I came across Todd’s videos on YouTube. I was totally blown away by his honesty on what to look for in a CBD supplier and the obstacles to watch out for along the way. Most importantly, how to get approved for a merchant account! Not to mention the customer is always right philosophy. Becca and Alyx are prompt to answer any emails. I couldn’t ask for a better support team and that’s why I will continue doing business with Joy Organics.”

OUR UNIQUE PROCESS
Joy’s processes ensure that her products provide an effective solution while remaining at an affordable price point.
Each of our hemp oil droplets is between 4 to 200 times smaller than the industry standard. This means that they’re more easily absorbed into the blood whether consumed orally or applied to the skin.
Our solution was to create a water-soluble nanoemulsion technology. This patent-pending technology transforms active compounds into nano-sized emulsions.
Our highly bioavailable products are not only extremely effective, they’re also extremely economical. You’ll get the same results from a much smaller amount of what we create than you would from our competitors. This is better for you and your wallet.
Joy is a wife, mom and grandmother. As a self-proclaimed “health nut”, her story begins in a place that many of us know very well – persistent pain and trouble sleeping.
While researching natural solutions, Joy learned of the benefits of CBD and began trying the top brands.
What she found was distressing: only one of the seven biggest CBD oil brands gave her the relief she desired.
After more research, the answer became obvious. Today’s CBD oil industry is a mess. There is minimal government oversight. No enforcement of false label claims and a huge variety of ineffective extraction and delivery methods.
As Joy’s frustration grew, so did her passion for creating a product people could trust. She then put together her team to create the most pure, organic, and bioavailable THC-free full spectrum hemp oil on the market.
