Green Wellness Life started as a quest for work-life balance, with a journey into holistic health along the way. Brandy and Jim Palmer wanted to put holistic, complementary products based on the latest research and standardized processing methods within reach of people seeking healthier lifestyles and relief from symptoms of disease.
Their journey began when Brandy saw an ad looking for a “rock star” part-time project manager in Michigan for a manufacturer/supplier of alternative health products derived from hemp and it’s increasingly-researched component, CBD. Brandy was a busy, successful project manager working 60-hours a week, but as the pressures of juggling family life continued to mount, she and Jim decided there must be a better way to balance hard work with family life, and a move fit the bill.
Brandy put her love of research to work to help the growing company bring products to market and navigating the FDA. While both marijuana and hemp are part of the cannabis family, industrial hemp plants contain only trace (and ergo, legal) amounts of the psychoactive ingredient, THC, that has earned marijuana its reputation as a controversial substance and political hot potato. The conundrum of bringing CBD products to market is complicated by outdated legislation that, while perhaps well-meaning, limits the availability of the non-psychotropic hemp strain. Presently, manufacturers must source legal hemp from countries that do not ban its production. Another challenge that makes Green Wellness Life products different is that the CBD is extracted using CO2 instead of hazardous extracting agents such as benzene. The industrial hemp sources receive two levels of lab testing before components are used in products.
In the course of her work and research into the heady scientific interactions of cannabinoids and CBD on the human endocannabinoid system, an amazing thing started happening. Friends and family would use the various CBD products her company supplied or developed, and their reports were inspiring. A friend with arthritis finding relief from inflammation and pain, a child with ADHD increasing focus through the use of a tincture…everything Brandy was reading, it seemed, corresponded with real life anecdotal evidence around her.
Jim and Brandy decided to launch Green Wellness Life to give others the opportunity to explore complementary health products on the leading edge, backed by mountains of research — natural, holistic, supportive products that are produced conscientiously and with regard for environmental sustainability and optimal human health.
