Entourage effect: the effect of cannabinoids and terpenes are working together in perfect synergy. Most animal studies with cannabidiol (CBD) utilize synthetic, single-molecule CBD produced by biochemical laboratories for research purposes. In contrast, whole plant extractions typically include CBD, THC, and more than 400 trace compounds. Many of these compounds interact synergistically to create what scientists refer to as an “entourage effect” that magnifies the therapeutic benefits of the plant’s individual components—so that the medicinal impact of the whole plant is greater than the sum of its parts.
What is CBD?
(noun) cannabidiol : a non-intoxicating cannabinoid found in cannabis; known for its many potential therapeutic benefits, playing a pivotal role in physiological processes such as memory, mood, & pain. It is often overshadowed by its cousin, THC (the compound in cannabis that produces a “high” feeling, known as marijuana). As more research is being done and CBD is gaining momentum in the scientific community and media, many health benefits are being discovered.
"There are thousands of patients who currently use cannabis as a medicine... There is no questions about its safety. It is one of humanity's oldest medicines, used for thousands of years by millions of people with very little evidence of significant toxic effects. More is known about its adverse effects than about those of most prescription drugs."

Founder & CEO
New Orleans native Mariah Grimes is passionate about CBD and its rapidly growing uses. I was diagnosed with epilepsy at the age of 13 and have been heavily prescription medicated since 2004. Although the seizures were for the most part controlled, my anxiety levels remained high and untreated. Not wanting to prescription medicate once again, I looked into CBD. After experimenting with different dosages and types of CBD, I made it a part of my daily routine and continue to research its benefits for my family and friends. The more I learn, the more hopeful I am for others who share similar issues.
Co-Founder & President
Taylor Hamon, a Cleveland, TN native, realized that CBD could help alleviate many of the health and wellness problems his girlfriend, friends, and family were facing. As Mariah started experimenting with CBD oil, I started heavily researching CBD and hemp. Not long after, I decided we would do our own CBD oil extraction and processing! I became a bit of a CBD nerd, and strongly believe that everyone can benefit in some way from its many uses. As our small company grows, there is never an opportunity missed to learn more about CBD's benefits!
