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. 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 The conundrum of bringing CBD products to market is complicated by outdated legislation that, while perhaps well-meaning, limits the availability of the non-psychotropic hemp strain.
