"If you're not making someone else's life better, then you're wasting your time. Your life will become better by making other lives better." – Will Smith
I suffered a compression fracture of my L1 and T9 vertebrae, and I have been diagnosed with PTSD, anxiety and depression. Medical marijuana and hemp/CBD have provided me with a safe, natural way to be actively involved and ultimately in control of what I put in my body to heal and maintain my physical and mental health. My favorite part about working in the CBD industry is educating the public on the incredible health and wellness benefits of CBD. In my free-time, I enjoy spending time with my two daughters and playing guitar.
I had never planned to be a part of the CBD industry; when I first started out as an intern I honestly didn’t know much about it. But, I have always been interested in natural alternatives for everyday products and cosmetics, even trying to cook some up myself! I soon realized that CBD was one such alternative in the pharmaceutical industry, with the potential to help so many people with so many different things! Being from Western Maryland, I’ve seen what the over-saturation of opiates and other pharmaceuticals has done to people and communities. The health industry has prioritized making money over the well-being of patients. I think the cannabis industry as a whole is really poised to change that and put individuals more in control of their own general health and wellness without so many of the risks. You can usually find me somewhere in Downtown Frederick with friends, on a walk, or doing arts and crafts!

Manufacturing our own products rather than engaging in a private label program allows us to better control the source of the raw CBD we choose to use in our formulations. Our company takes this responsibility very seriously and is committed to quality over cost. We partner with trusted Colorado growers and processors that provide detailed information and/or certifications to support the quality and safety of their raw materials. As for our other ingredients, we strive to source organic, pure and natural ingredients whenever possible. Relēf CBD products are non-gmo, cruelty free, and safe for human consumption or topical application.

Raw Material Testing
All of our raw CBD goes through supplemental rigorous testing to ensure the quality and potency is at the highest possible standard. Our third party testing facility, Atlantic Test Labs (MD), is an ISO 17025 accredited laboratory that specializes in medicinal cannabis and CBD testing. We have developed a great partnership with Atlantic Test Labs and together will bring transparency and honesty to the CBD industry and to our customers. We test all new raw materials for potency, 48 different pesticides, and microbial activity. After successful results are achieved, we move on to product manufacturing. These results are always available to our customers upon request!

Our Relēf CBD products are handcrafted in small batches of no more than 200 units at a time. We do our best not to overstock our finished goods shelf to make sure your product is as fresh as possible. We follow cGMP (Current Good Manufacturing Practices) guidelines, utilize sterile equipment and require all production technicians to wear sterile gloves, hair nets, and clean lab coats. The SOP’s developed for each product as well as each batch we produce allows for full traceability. We are completely transparent when it comes to our production process and welcome potential retailers and customers to schedule a tour and visit our facility.

Quality Control/Batch Sample Testing
Once a batch is complete, a small sample is retrieved and sent to Atlantic Test Labs to undergo additional potency testing. As we wait for results, the finished batch is transferred to our Quality Control shelf for visual inspection. Once the batch passes testing, it is then transferred to our finished goods shelf and is deemed ready for sale to consumers! The Certificate of Analysis, or CofA, is uploaded directly to our website and available for view by all.
