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 The conundrum of bringing CBD products to market is complicated by outdated legislation that, while perhaps well-meaning, limits the availability of the non-psychotropic hemp strain.
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. Jim didn’t quit his day job, though. All daily operations at GWL are run by a 3 woman team. Brandy is blessed to have Hannah and Cara by her side as partners!
We are so blessed and continue to grow. At any given time you may speak with our Green Wellness Life Staff… Hannah, Brandy, & Cara. Don’t hesitate to give us a call if you have questions or want to learn more about the Green Wellness way! And cheers to good health!
Charitable Work & Community Involvement
Community and healing have been core pillars at Green Wellness Life since inception. Healing the body can help one individual, but healing a community can help the many and we owe so much to communities across the country who have supported our company and mission from the beginning. Each year we engage in a number of charity and community activities.
Every Green Wellness employee gets $500 at the end of each year to donate to a charity of their choice. This past year, Green Wellness employees donated to the following charities:
- Earth Justice – A collection of lawyers using the legal system to advance clean energy, combat climate change, and preserve wildlife.
- YWCA’s Nurse Examiner Program – A program designed to provide free rape exams and medical help to sexual assault victims.
- Pilcrow Foundation – A foundation created to provide new hardcover children’s books to rural public libraries across the country.
- Crash’s Landing – A local pet rescue that helps cats find loving homes.
- Grace’s Table – A local organization that assists teenage mothers with parenting play, education, careers, and finding tools for healthier relationships, financial management, and other important adult skills.
In addition to our annual donations, Green Wellness Life also supports pet rescues, veterans and students. Rescues are very near and dear to us, as many of the staff members have rescued pets. For this reason, we not only donate items to rescues, but also offer product discounts to owners of rescued pets. We regularly donate pet tinctures, peanut butter, and coconut oil to pet rescues and sent over $500 in pet products to pet rescues and veterinarians in Puerto Rico this year who are working with homeless pets. Additionally, we offer a 15% discount to all veterans on any products in our shop and we award an annual $1,000 scholarship for students attending a college, university, or trade school.
