When we looked at the cannabis space, we saw a lot of products for sale and very little concise information about what was good and safe. The industry looked like the Wild West—no barrier to entry for brands in a completely unregulated market.

Our idea was to build a website that people could trust. A smart place to learn about natural remedies and connect with quality brands that regularly test products. We are here to help people navigate the ever-changing landscape of natural health with evidence-based articles that are easy to understand.

  • We cite medical journals
  • We avoid broad, reckless medical claims
  • We talk about hemp, CBD, our bodies, thinkers, and brands—as they matter to people
  • We believe in smart writing that
    • is simple
    • rewards curious people
    • and upholds the “better angels of our nature”
