A Conversation with CBDfx About Veteran Support (and Other CBD Assistance Programs)

By Melena Gurganus

A number of brands offer military discounts and assistance programs. We reached out to CBDfx to ask about the response these programs get from veterans and why the brand has focused on military support.

What encouraged CBDfx to start a military discount program?

After years of thoroughly researching and studying the many benefits of CBD, it became clear to us that this amazing compound may have the ability to help those who suffer from anxiety, depression, and PTSD. In our research, we came across countless studies that demonstrated CBD’s unique ability to alleviate these symptoms without the side effects that are associated with more conventional treatment methods.

At CBDfx, our main goal is to help as many people as possible get relief in a natural and relatively safe way. CBD is considered not addictive and may be taken in fairly large doses without risk of bodily harm. Therefore, it made perfect sense to provide a discount to those who have served our country. We all know about the seriousness of PTSD that can result from time spent overseas. We hope that our CBD can help these men and women.

Do many soldiers and veterans take advantage of the discount?

We’re delighted to say that our military discount is extremely popular. The fact that this discount is so popular tells us that our CBD is actually helping them readjust to their post-military lives by providing them with the relief that they deserve.

Do you think more awareness regarding CBD’s potential impact on PTSD, anxiety, and addiction is needed?

Despite the popularity of our military discount, there absolutely needs to be more awareness regarding CBD’s potential ability to treat these issues. Many of our customers were previously taking psychiatric medications that were prescribed by their doctors. While many people can take these drugs for long periods of time, that doesn’t mean that they’re harmless.

By now, we are all aware of the fact that commonly prescribed psychiatric drugs can be addictive and dangerous if taken in large doses or over long periods of time. CBD is still being researched for its potential side effects and risks. However, it’s widely accepted among medical researchers that it’s an incredibly safe alternative to popular psychiatric drugs.

We hope that over the next couple of years, the stigma associated with CBD becomes a thing of the past. This plant-based compound can be the next big thing in the mental health world.

What kind of feedback have you received from soldiers and veterans about the product line? Are certain products more popular than others with these customers?

Overall, the feedback regarding our product line has been incredible. We’ve really put a lot of time, effort and money into coming up with the very best formulas that you can find on the market today. Our CBD is full spectrum and comes from organically grown hemp. These things make an enormous difference when it comes to quality and effectiveness. We’re pleased that our customers find our CBD products to be extremely helpful in terms of providing relief.

We’ve found that our oral tinctures seem to be the most popular products that we offer. Many believe that sublingual administration is the easiest and most long-lasting consumption method. Plus, we make it easy for our customers to adjust their dose because we offer our tinctures in a variety of CBD concentrations.

If you wanted our nation’s soldiers and veterans to know one thing about your brand, what would it be?

We want our nation’s soldiers and veterans to know that we’re not just here to profit off the CBD craze. We truly believe that high-quality CBD products can change people’s lives. As we said before, we really do the research when it comes to learning about CBD and how it can benefit people’s mental and physical health. We formulate our products in order to provide our customers with the most relief possible. We don’t use cheap filler ingredients or lazy extraction processes.

At CBDfx, we’re trying to change people’s attitudes when it comes to hemp. We believe that CBD has a bright future in the medical industry. Our hope is that our high-quality CBD products can inform people that there are natural, relatively risk-free alternatives to popular drugs that people take to find relief.


CBDfx, like other brands, is careful to point out that CBD works differently for every person. It can provide much needed relief for one person and then offer the next person an entirely different experience. What we’re all pushing toward is access. The theme we hear when we talk to people around the country—brands, legislators, veterans—is that people believe those who serve our country should have access to the best possible care. In some cases that means the ability to try a variety of new and different options in search of something that works.
