Partner Spotlight: Greenlife Organics

Partner Spotlight: Greenlife Organics

Often when it comes to relieving aches, pains and stress, people are torn between nature and science. Despite praise for CBD as a novel and natural remedy, there has been concern over the lack of FDA oversight and regulation in the industry. The controversy centers on certain brands’ inconsistent quality, strains and extraction methods and lack of transparency with consumers. When scientific proof falls short, people are forced to turn to un-natural remedies, like ibuprofen. When doing so, consumers risk long term side effects and lose the additional health benefits of CBD products.

 

But this is where Green Life Organics comes in. Greenlife Organics is a seed-to-market hemp farm and brand committed to balancing nature and science. They produce CBD infused capsules, oils, topicals, pet products, and home goods that are safe, natural, and effective. Their contribution to CBD research studies and product innovation is their focus as they strive to bring knowledge, inspiration, and healing to every customer
