It’s been one year since we launched CBD+ and boy, what a year it’s been. Time flies when you’re having fun. To celebrate, we’re sharing three of our favorite CBD oil recipes and two of our favorite product success stories.
But first, we want to take a little trip down memory lane. (You can scroll down to the recipes if you want, we won’t mind).
The Journey to CBD+
An Explosive New Project
It was so hard to keep our little bottle a secret, especially when operations focused intensively on production. There were several round of strict meetings and testings.
You see, some companies aren’t completely honest about their practices and we wanted to make sure every step of the way, we were not cutting corners. After all, if YOU were going to use this product, we wanted it to be both safe and effective.
Potency and Purity
We wanted to create a product that you could trust. Plus, we wanted to create a product that was truly premium and stood apart from the rest.
Thus, CBD+ was born.
What’s different about our CBD, when compared to others? Here’s the breakdown:
- 1500mg (most places offer weaker concentrations)
- based in full spectrum hemp oil (instead of coconut oil)
- peppermint flavor (for a more calming sensation and experience)
In today’s hyper-active world, nearly everybody is dealing with sensory-overload and is in need of de-stressing support.
Luckily, every body is also equipped with the Endocannabinoid System, a natural stress-reducing system. Receptors throughout the central nervous system are designed to absorb and utilize a phytochemical found in hemp called cannabidiol (CBD) that biologically helps manage physical and emotional pain.
• Substantial health discoveries have documented its success as a form of therapy
• Medical doctors, pain relief clinics and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) treatment centers have advocated for its use in treatment
• CBD has been used to reduce the psychoactive effects of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), cannabis’ psychoactive compound that is responsible for brain fog, delayed reactions and the feeling of being “high”
Finally, launch day came and we received so much positive feedback from you all. A new community within Purium emerged as the CBD movement began to sprout its wings. It was exciting!
We watched all your videos: running up to your mail carrier in anticipation of the oil’s arrival, your first impressions and more…we were so happy.
And then, our happy train hit a roadblock in the railroad.
One day, our web provider pulled the plug on our CBD page, forcing us to remove the product altogether. It was a huge blow to us.
So, why was the product pulled? Unfortunately, laws governing CBD operate in a grey area. While we are disappointed in our provider’s decision, we also respect that they acted in what was best for their company and employees. Tough decisions are never easy, we definitely know that.
We had to think fast. In a short span, CBD+ had helped many on their paths to wellness and we couldn’t just leave those people hanging. So, we hit the books and got a new storefront running.
After picking our store back up, we hit the ground running again (thanks to you amazing people).
We listened to your feedback and learned that the peppermint flavor was not jiving with some people. In addition, some customers wanted to use the oil for the pets, but the flavoring was prohibiting them from do so.
Thus, we released an unflavored version. This flavor might be better for cooking/baking too (unless you’re okay with a minty infusion).
Today, we’re still so happy to be providing you with pure and potent CBD. And with what the future holds, we’re pretty excited. We hope you are too!
In honor of its anniversary, here are two of our favorite CBD stories from customers like you. As you can see: it may not be marijuana, but it can still help support wellness without the psychoactive properties.

“Definitely the full spectrum CBD for my son…. Thank y’all so much for making that full spectrum, it has changed my family’s life!!”

And here’s another one of our favorites.
The CBD from Purium is amazing, Since I started using it in April, I have felt a lot less anxious, I feel more grounded and able to receive all the daily activities that can sometimes be overbearing. Thank you Purium for formulating such a wonderful product and allowing me to give my body whole nourishment.

These statements have not been evaluated by the FDA and are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease. Most work-place drug screens and tests target delta9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and do not detect the presence of Cannabidiol (CBD) or other legal natural hemp-based constituents. Even though our products contain less than .3% THC by dry weight (Federal Legal Limit), studies have shown that ingesting Full Spectrum CBD can cause confirmed positive results when screening urine and blood specimens. Accordingly, if you are subject to any form of employment drug testing or screening, we recommend (as does the United States Armed Services) that you DO NOT take CBD. Before taking CBD, consult with your healthcare practitioner, drug screening testing company or employer. You must be at least 18 years old to purchase CBD.
