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.
It’s no secret that CBD has become one of the most popular health products pretty much ever. Some would even say the non-psychoactive cannabinoid has hit celebrity status. Between 2017 and 2018, the U.S. hemp-derived CBD market nearly doubled in size…and it’s projected to just keep getting bigger. Try something to the tune of being worth $22 billion by 2022.
Celebrities are no strangers to the trendiest items to hit the mainstream, and CBD is no exception. The list of celebs who swear by CBD is long and includes everyone from actors and models to talk show hosts, comedians and professional athletes.
Why are celebs celebrating CBD?
For many of the same reasons as people in the mainstream — how it helps chronic pain, inflammation, anxiety and more. Who are the celebs that swear by CBD oil? Let’s take a look.
7 Celebs Who Swear by CBD
1. Jennifer Aniston
When Jennifer Aniston endorses something, the world tends to take notice. Really, who could forget that famous haircut? Open up any women’s magazine and you’re likely to see her face within the first few pages on some ad for something. She was named the World’s Most Beautiful Woman by People Magazine in 2016, she’s had an extremely successful career and is one of the richest women in Hollywood.
She also swears by CBD.
All the fame and fortune Aniston has experienced comes with a price. She’s openly blamed the media for making her feel like “an insecure girl” regarding her looks. In an open letter to the Huffington Post, Aniston explained it like this:
“The objectification and scrutiny we put women through is absurd and disturbing. The way I am portrayed by the media is simply a reflection of how we see and portray women in general, measured against some warped standard of beauty.”
Why is the former Friends star such a big fan of the non-psychoactive cannabinoid? “CBD helps with pain, stress, and anxiety,” she told US. “It has all the health benefits of marijuana without the high.”
2. Whoopi Goldberg
Whoopi Goldberg loves CBD so much that she started a cannabis company that carries her name. The actress, comedian, author and television host, who has been nominated for 13 Emmy Awards and won her first Golden Globe Award for her role in The Color Purple, has always been an outspoken advocate for marijuana legalization.
In 2016, Goldberg and business partner Maya Elisabeth (a cannabis business veteran and founder of Om Edibles, which has won 7 High Times Cannabis Cup awards) launched their line of women-focused products aimed at helping to relieve period pain.
Maya & Whoopi products are all designed with women in mind as a natural way to relieve period pain, nerve pain, menstrual cramps and other issues women getting older face. The company is aimed at middle-aged women, a demographic that can certainly enjoy the benefits of cannabis but doesn’t necessarily enjoy the high. Many of the products do contain THC, but there are options without it as well.
3. Alessandra Ambrosio
This Brazilian supermodel is best known for being a long-time Victoria’s Secret model. This drop-dead gorgeous gal, who has ranked on the Forbes’ list of highest-paid women in the modeling industry, once shared her secret for preparing mind, body and soul for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.
“The most important thing to do [to prep for the Victoria’s Secret Show] is to sleep eight hours the night before,” she said. “It’s hard because the mind gets anxious, so I try CBD oil and I think it helps.”
Ambrosio (and countless other individuals) is on to something. Research does indicate that CBD has “considerable potential as a treatment for multiple anxiety disorders,” after all. This supermodel celeb who swears by CBD has found success with the non-psychoactive cannabinoid’s ability to calm her stress before participating in one of the biggest fashion shows in the world.
4. Montel Williams
In 1999, famous talk show host Montel Williams was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS), a chronic (typically progressive) disease in which the immune system eats away at the protective covering of nerves in the brain and spinal cord. Since his diagnosis, Williams has become an outspoken medical cannabis consumer and has advocated for both CBD- and THC-based therapies for years.
One thing Williams suffered from after his diagnosis of MS was depression. At one point his depression became so overwhelming that he tried jumping in front of a taxi in an attempt to take his own life. Soon after, Williams started using CBD to mitigate his pain and mood. It worked so well that he now believes it helps him to better manage his day-to-day life.
Williams recently started his own brand of CBD products. According to Williams, “My brand is the culmination of my experience with cannabis and hemp-derived CBD over decades.”
Williams says that he views hemp-derived CBD as a potential bridge towards increased cannabis acceptance amongst the confusing state regulations about THC ratios.
“We’re in this ridiculous never-never land in America when it comes to cannabis regulations. It’s gotten so ridiculous it’s almost impossible to navigate,” said Williams. “But at the same time, there are patients out there suffering, and we know there is some relief that can be had with CBD. It’s like during flu season, some people take zinc pills, some people take vitamin C. There’s no reason you shouldn’t be adding CBD to your daily holistic program.”
5. Morgan Freeman
Who doesn’t love Morgan Freeman? He has one of the most recognizable voices in Hollywood, not to mention that classic, calm demeanor dripping in Hollywood cool. This is one Hollywood star who has stolen the hearts of many a fan during his lifework.
Freeman, like many other actors, has long been an advocate for the legalization of marijuana. The famous actor turned to medical cannabis after an almost fatal car accident he suffered in 2008. When he recovered, he developed fibromyalgia.
“I have fibromyalgia pain in my arm, and the only thing that offers any relief is marijuana,” says Freeman. “They’re talking about kids who have grand mal seizures, and they’ve discovered that marijuana eases that down to where these children can have a life.”
Freeman, who regularly uses CBD for its natural pain-relieving effects, also uses THC for pain relief as well.
6. Mandy Moore
Mandy Moore recently spoke to Coveteur while getting ready for the 2018 Golden Globe Awards, where she opened up to the lifestyle publication about what was referred to as “perhaps her best beauty secret of the night.”
“This year,” said the singer-songwriter and actress, “I’m trying some CBD oil on my feet, which my stylist recommended. I asked her if there was some kind of numbing cream…I could be floating this year!”
7. Olivia Wilde
Actress, activist, model and producer Olivia Wilde lives a full life playing several different roles. In 2017, Wilde made her Broadway debut, where she played the role of Julia in 1984. She recently sat down with the New York Times to speak about her personal wellness and beauty routine. After talking about her skincare regime, Wilde had the following to say about CBD:
“Another thing I’m a huge believer in, in terms of body care: I’ve been using this body lotion that has CBD…Recently, I did a play on Broadway for six months, and my body was wrecked. My neck was really tight. The CBD has relaxing benefits, and the idea is to avoid using too many painkillers.”
Celebrity Treatment of CBD
Celebs have always been the leaders of all things trending, so it’s really no surprise that they’re embracing CBD. The thing is, CBD is much more than a trend embraced by the biggest names in Hollywood. It’s more of a movement that’s taken the world by storm that’s proving to be beneficial for just about every health condition under the sun. It’s no wonder so many celebs swear by CBD. The non-psychoactive cannabinoid really has become “the next big thing.”
The team at Joy Organics is hosting an event on Friday, February 15th that will offer customers our biggest discounts of the year, and with every purchase, we will provide a displaced child with breakfast and lunch for an entire month.
The passion to serve both local and global communities is the driving force behind everything our founder Joy Smith does. She has a platform and she is determined to use it to better as many lives as possible. Before Joy started Joy Organics, she spent time raising awareness and funds for children in Ugandan refugee camps.These camps were established due to the South Sudanese conflict, which displaced nearly 5 million people. They were meant to be temporary. However, as the conflict continues these encampments are beginning to feel permanent for the thousands of men, women and children caught in the net of war.
“To say this is a heartbreaking situation doesn’t begin to speak to the reality of these innocent people,” says Joy. When she visited Hope Primary School and learned that many displaced children were going without food, it had a profound impact on her as a mother and a grandmother. “These children are the future of their country. They are the leaders who will help South Sudan recover. But without proper nutrition, their growth and development will be impeded and so will their country’s.”
In honor of her birthday, Joy’s children dubbed February 15th “Joy Day.” On Joy Day, every purchase of a Joy Organics product will provide a displaced child at Hope Primary School with breakfast and lunch on school days for an entire month. Simultaneously, we will offer our products at the highest discount we can — all in an effort to get our CBD into as many hands as possible.
“We hope to make this an annual event,” said Joy. In 2019, our goal at Joy Organics is to improve the lives of 1 million people in the U.S. through our CBD products. The significant discount that we are offering, both in-store and online, will be a major leap toward that goal. “We also hope that, with this promotion and the compassion of our customers, we will be able to improve the lives of many more across the world.”
CBD products are the apple of the health and wellness market’s eye right now. People are stocking up on cannabis-based products in droves. Everything from skin creams to beverages to vape pens is offering servings of CBD. However, there’s only one CBD product in the whole market that has been regulated to date. This is a medication for epilepsy. So, why is CBD unregulated and what is the future of CBD research? Let’s take a look.
Why There’s So Little Research on CBD
Long before advances in technology allowed us to perform scientific experiments and record results on paper, our ancestors went through life with two principles. These principles were trial and error.
By using the land around them, our ancestors consumed plants for food sources. Over time, they realized that some herbs had a positive effect on their bodies. This realization was furthered with the advent of fire.
Fire cooks solid material such as hemp. Anytime you apply pressure on an object (such as cooking it), it creates chemical reactions throughout the object’s genetic makeup. This inevitably changes the chemical composition of this item. As a result, you have a new product that will have a completely different interaction with your system as a whole
When our ancestors consumed cannabis, they noticed many benefits of the plant. This caused them to use the plant in tonics to boost immunity. Others would implement the plant in services as a means for spiritual awakening. This long-standing history between cannabis and humankind dates far back to the Egyptians, who recorded using the plant for many practices.
The Ban on CBD
Like alcohol, cannabis was once used as an ingredient in common household products. You could find cannabis in many over-the-counter medicines. However, the world began to change its tune on cannabis.
People realized that inhaling some strains of cannabis caused psychoactive effects. During a time where alcohol was on the precipice of being outlawed, cannabis also became banned.
Eventually, the prohibition on alcohol was lifted, but the one on cannabis stuck. With time, science evolved. Laboratories were able to formulate over-the-counter and prescription meds for every ailment under the sun.
During this time, small studies started happening on cannabis. Eventually, scientists realized that cannabis comes in two different forms. There’s marijuana, one version of the plant. Marijuana has a high concentration of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). This is the molecule that we now know causes the psychoactive side effects attributed to using marijuana.
Meanwhile, another version of cannabis, hemp, has a low concentration of THC. Instead, the hemp plant is rich in CBD. While this breakthrough may seem monumental to proponents of medical cannabis, others didn’t share the sentiment. With the lines still so blurry between marijuana and hemp, why rock the boat? After all, pharmaceutical companies came up with solutions for everything. With this mindset, studies on CBD remained minimal.
CBD and Medical Cannabis
While the medical cannabis movement just hit a boom, it’s been percolating since 1996. Ironically enough, the first state to ban cannabis, California, became the first to legalize the plant medicinally. Under the Compassionate Use Act, those with life-threatening illnesses were able to seek relief from painful symptoms with medical cannabis.
For almost two decades, the medical cannabis movement remained under wraps. The cover stayed over CBD until 2011. This is the year Colorado famously legalized medical cannabis in their state. That year, the Rocky Mountain State changed the game for hemp and busted open the doors for CBD research.
CBD and Epilepsy
Medical cannabis made national headlines when a young girl named Charlotte Figi started taking CBD to fight her condition. Diagnosed with a condition known as Dravet Syndrome, Charlotte would suffer upwards of 300 grand mal seizures per week.
At the age of six, her family had already tried almost everything. They tried a ketogenic diet that hurt her bones. She attempted barbituates that were destructive to her stomach. Nothing did the trick.
Desperate, the Figis uprooted to Colorado. They began administering CBD to Charlotte. The seizure activity would stop as the CBD would hit the stream. With regular use, Charlotte now experiences a handful of seizures a month.
Seeing this miracle unfold on live television, more states jumped on board the medical cannabis bandwagon. Currently, over half of the United States recognizes cannabis as a medicinal treatment.
In the same breath, this realization opened the door for CBD products in all 50 states. While not recognized as medicine, CBD is now treated as a supplement across the nation.
How the CBD-Epilepsy Connection Opens the Door for Research
When Charlotte started taking CBD less than a decade ago, scientists had a general idea of how CBD interacted with the system. When a seizure happens, it’s because there are loose electrons floating about the system. As these energized molecules bop about, they cause chemical reactions with every genetic structure they bump into. This causes the involuntary impulses that trigger an epileptic episode.
CBD binds onto these purposeless electrons. As a result, the rogue molecule is sort of quarantined. This will cause less distress on the system and is less likely to trigger a seizure.
While that seemed convincing enough for people to try CBD, others remained skeptical. At the time, there were not enough answers to the “why” and “how.” Due to this uncertainty, some people were in an uproar about treating a child with hemp.
However, this breakthrough in 2012 opened the door for research that was conducted just last year. Studies are already targeting strains of cannabis to treat specific types of seizures. For instance, in a 2018 study “comparing two doses of CBD to a placebo, the researchers reported a 41.9 percent reduction in ‘drop seizures’” for those with Lennox-Gastaut syndrome.
With CBD making such headway in epilepsy treatment, 2018 saw a huge breakthrough for cannabis. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) signed off on their first regulated CBD product. Known as Epidiolex, the CBD-rich prescription comes in a liquid form and has only been approved in treatment for Dravet Syndrome (Charlotte’s condition) and Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome (the study referenced above).
CBD Products in the Mainstream
2018 also saw the Senate sign off a new Farm Bill. Under this act, hemp is now legal in all 50 states. That means there are no restrictions on CBD products being shipped across state lines.
Prior to this new law, no CBD products have been regulated by the FDA. With so many other products littering the wellness market, allocating resources in a federally illegal industry wasn’t a priority.
With the lift on this ban, the interest in CBD products has hit a sky high. By the year 2022, the CBD market is expected to hit as high as $22 billion.
Increased interest in products means increased interest in regulation. Under old laws, hemp was overlooked by the Federal Justice Department. In order for companies to cultivate hemp, they needed permission from their state and to adhere to strict laws.
With the law Farm Bill, the Federal Justice Department will take their eye off the industry. It will now be under the umbrella of the FDA.
Since hemp is being lowered a clearance level, it will be easier for people to produce. This is where the FDA is going to want to get involved. Their duty is to make sure that the products available on the market are safe for consumers. As CBD products continue to become readily available, the FDA is going to call for more transparency from companies. This will force the industry (and government) to invest more money in more testing CBD.
The Future of CBD Research
We already know a quite a bit about CBD as it is. While the research on hemp products may not be as conclusive as those on NSAIDs and Ibuprofen, there’s enough to give us a ground understanding of CBD’s potential.
Thanks to research already on CBD, it is safe to conclude that CBD may help with:
This list may look impressive, but it’s just the beginning. Hemp farmers are already working closely with specialists to create strains to target specific ailments. For instance, at Joy Organics, we partner with cultivators who breed hemp plants high in CBD. This makes it easier to not only isolate (and remove) THC from the product, but it makes our full spectrum hemp oil more potent.
Last year’s monumental announcement surrounding Epidolex shows that specialized CBD care is already in the works. Strains are being bred to formulate targeted health care. As proven with Epidolex, the end result may mean that more CBD products will be promoted as medicine rather than as a supplement.
One thing’s for certain, CBD products are already extremely popular. However, the stigma of cannabis still surrounds the industry. With more research, the demand for CBD products will continue to rise. As more people get on board, others will become influenced. This opens Pandora’s Box of possibilities. Not only are these possibilities endless, but they’re exciting as well!
3 letters are making a huge impact across mainstream headlines. They are CBD. This ingredient is being added to everything from lotions to cocktails. So, what has caused this huge wave of CBD products? Why has the world fallen in love with CBD? Kristen Coffield of the Culinary Cure stopped by Good Morning Washington and offered a crash course on all things CBD.
What Is CBD?
CBD comes from a plant that is categorized under the genus known as cannabis. The two most common plants classified under the cannabis umbrella are:
Cannabis contains unique chemical compounds known as cannabinoids. In marijuana, the most abundant cannabinoid is THC. THC is responsible for the psychoactive feelings marijuana users report.
Hemp has extremely low levels of THC. Instead, its main cannabinoid is CBD. CBD doesn’t cause the body to feel high.
Instead, CBD acts as a strong antioxidant that has shown promise in alleviating pain, reducing bouts of anxiety and decreasing the number of spasmodic episodes a person may have. In addition, CBD exhibits strong anti-inflammatory properties that eclipse those of Vitamin C. This is why CBD is such a hot commodity for the health and beauty sector.
How to Use CBD Products?
Anytime you implement a new supplement into your routine, it is best to consult a physician. This is especially true when entering a market as new as CBD. Currently, CBD products are not federally regulated. While CBD products are deemed safe for consumption, there are no proper guidelines for recommended use.
When you use CBD products, Kristen suggests starting with a 1 mg to 3 mg serving size. It’s best to try out before bedtime, in the privacy of your own home. That way you can assess how your body reacts to using this form of therapy. From there, you can adjust, incorporating CBD into your morning routine…or anytime you see fit.
Serving size is a matter of preference. This particular area is where the waters get a bit murky for unregulated CBD products. Some companies may not disclose how many milligrams of CBD you are getting in each bite or drop. This makes choosing the correct serving size more difficult for the average consumer.
With so much uncertainty surrounding the CBD market, it is in your best interest to do some research before purchasing products. You want to choose a company that uses high-quality, organic ingredients optimized for the best results. Also, check to see what their serving suggestions are and if there are any additional active ingredients in the formula.
Using CBD Products In Your Everyday Life
Part of the fun with CBD is that you can implement these products into your everyday life unlike any other supplement on the market. One of the best ways to use CBD is in your food!
Cannabinoids love fat. Fat absorbs these nutrients. In turn, when we digest CBD-rich foods, our body absorbs the fat and the CBD inside of it. Anytime you can incorporate CBD with fat, you are going to increase the benefits of your supplement.
With CBD tinctures, you just need to a few milligrams to some of your favorite snacks, apps and meals.
Some amazing ways to infuse CBD into your diet include:
Chia seed pudding with cinnamon and CBD
Lavender chai latte with almond milk and CBD
Macadamia, cacao, coconut bliss balls
Our body is designed with a special endocannabinoid system. When we consume plant-based molecules from hemp, receptors within the endocannabinoid system interact with the CBD. Based on the reaction of your system, some of the symptoms that caused you to seek support from CBD may subside.
Why Choose CBD Products?
CBD is such an easy supplement to work into your regimen. Why wouldn’t you? It’s a great way to start your day off relaxed, power through it pain-free and rest easily at night.
For those who turn to NSAIDs for pain relief but dislike the side effects, CBD may be a viable option for you. CBD is not known to have any gastrointestinal side effects. In fact, CBD has shown to fight off some of those ailments!
As CBD products become readily available, you will witness cannabinoids popping up all over the health and wellness market. Expect to see CBD in everything from skincare to pet treats. Just be sure to research each company extensively. You want to reap the benefits of CBD, not open the door for more issues! Choose a brand you can trust like Kristen Coffield. Opt for 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.
