Hannah Loves This Topic!
There are only a handful of blogs that I have written, and this one is by far one of my favorites. As a rheumatoid and fibro patient since the age of 16, I continue to experiment and look for new CBD products that can benefit my quality of life! I often say I am a young woman, in an old woman’s body. This is not fun as many of you know! So not only do I find that the products offered by our new vendor are becoming part of my daily pain management regime, I also feel inspired by the company’s principles. This week I’d like to introduce you to our newest brand, Bloom Farms.
Who’s the newby on the block, Bloom Farms?
When looking to onboard a new vendor we have a process that I have become all too familiar with at this point. Someone calls, I politely listen, I then ask them to send me an email. I look over product info and lab results, then I file that info into a potential vendor file. Later to be looked at for potential products to sample for the store. We talk to a lot of new vendors and not all of them stick out! Many never make it past the informational stage, and even more do not get past our sampling process.
My experience with Bloom Farms was very different than most vendors I speak with. I was immediately impressed by what the company stands for. When it comes to the topic of vape, people are often either very afraid of it or terrifyingly unaware of the potential health risks. With concerns about nicotine, VG, PG, and vitamin E acetate causing life threatening popcorn lung, it was beyond refreshing to hear about Bloom Farms and their commitment to the customer and their health.
What is the mission of Bloom Farms?
Before I delve into the exciting new products that we are going to be adding to our collection, I want to emphasize how cool it has been to work with this company. Bloom Farms advertises their mission being to “provide millions of people a life full of relaxation, relief, creativity, and fun.” To accomplish this lofty mission they have a few core values published on their Mission page:
- Give something amazing back
- Be good to everyone (including yourself)
- If something isn’t working, change it
- Own your results, be unstoppable, and create amazing experiences
Green Wellness Life stands behind those values to promote a better quality of life. From our giveaways, to guaranteeing all of our products, to our commitment to finding the best individual solution, we are all about our customers. We are completely committed to our customers health and well being from start to finish! Bloom Farms walks hand in hand with our principles by offering a fresh look as well as quality products that can assist with many issues you may be dealing with including pain, anxiety, relaxation, mood and more!
Although their commitment to safety offers a much appreciated peace of mind, I found that their commitment to being a 1-for-1 company, to be equally impactful. This is the reason I was so excited to write this blog. In the office it’s my job to unpack, sticker, and put away products in the stock room when delivered. We never onboard a product without trying it first so when we ordered a few samples to try, my heart soared when I saw a little cutout of a hemp leaf with some little black dots embedded in the paper. This funky textured cutout thanked me for my purchase and included some mystery food seeds. I was originally very confused. Why the heck is this CBD company sending me vegetable seeds? On the back of the seed card there was a little blurb about what it means to be a 1-for-1 company. For every purchase of a Bloom Farms product, they donate a healthy meal to a food-insecure individual or family. Hunger is far reaching and in your neighborhood. 1 in 8 people struggle with food insecurity and 1 in 5 children don’t know where their next meal is coming from. Thanks to customers like us & (hopefully) you, Bloom Farms has already donated over 2 million healthy meals since 2015.
A Fresh Look
Here at GWL, we are packaging junkies. We truly love cool looking labels and packaging and it is pretty hard to ignore how incredibly classy the Bloom Farms packaging is! I know, I know this is definitely not most important but I can say I appreciate the attractive, professional look they bring to CBD products.
Let’s Talk Products!
It’s pretty hard to talk about safety and packaging without going over the new products. We have brought on three of their products.
- 250 mg mini disposable vapor pens (fully disposable pen with battery)
- 250 mg cartridges (fully disposable cartridge – battery not included)
- New buttonless rechargeable vape battery
What originally attracted us to try these products is that there is no carrier oil. The inclusion of some carrier oils, like VG and PG, brings about some health concerns that as a company(along with Bloom Farms), we have made a conscientious effort to stay clear of. These broad spectrum vape products are 60+% cannabinoids like CBD, CBC, CBG, and CBN. You’ll notice that there does not appear to be a lot of liquid in their pens, and that’s accurate, but it’s ALL active ingredient – no filler! I have been a fan of the Social CBD disposable vapes since I was having a panic attack and Cara stuck a little blue pen in my mouth. My panic attack subsided pretty immediately and I became a believer. Although a fan, I only used that isolate CBD pen when struggling with situational anxiety. Switching from a CBD isolate vape to a broad spectrum uncut vape was night and day–I use this pen entirely differently.
Instead of grabbing my vape when I can’t control my breathing, I grab my vape when I’m nauseous, when my body aches, when I get those dreaded pins and needles (thanks Fibro), and when I find myself getting worked up/anxious. There are four flavor options including natural, blackberry, sequoia mint, and stone fruit. So not only do they look amazing, they taste amazing too. You’ll get up to 300 puffs from your pen or cartridge, depending on the length of your draw. It is hard not to love these delicious and cute vapor cartridges and pens.
A Safe Company
The new vapor products look cute and taste great, but are they safe? From soil to oil, Bloom Farms works to create safe products. All of their hemp comes from responsible California farmers and each yield is meticulously lab tested for cannabinoid ratios, pesticides, fungi, and any other undesirables. Each oil is extracted without the presence of petroleum-based solvents and they only use FDA-grade BPA-free cartridges. As with everything, we advise moderation. It is important to note that quality vaping products, that isn’t a green light to vape all day every day. Nonetheless, as someone who casually vapes I have peace of mind when I grab my Bloom Farms pen.
After learning a bit about who Bloom Farms is and what products we brought on, hopefully you have an idea how this newest vendor addition could fit into your life.
