What we believe in
CBD Therapeutics was the first company in Canada to bring truly vertically integrated Canadian CBD to the market.
They are also believed to be the only company in the CBD space that has built and offered an educational curriculum on CBD for free to the public.
As director James Whitehead explains, that focus on providing the best product and service possible to their customers has been at the heart of their operations since the beginning.
“CBD Therapeutics was born out of a mission to provide Canadians with direct access to CBD and high-quality information about CBD. Neither of those things existed at the time,” says James.
“We also knew that nutraceutical cannabidiol products could be produced with a greater level of quality, efficacy, transparency, and attention to detail.”
All CBD Therapeutics’ products are formulated by highly qualified personnel, passionate about product development, with an uncompromising tenacity for quality assurance.
Their entire product line is tested for cannabinoid and terpene profile, solvent-free certification, and microbial contaminant screening. And all their raw materials are ethically and sustainably sourced, with an emphasis on organic options wherever available.
“Our focus is on the development of solvent-free, high bioavailability CBD products,” says James. “Our products are among the most effective CBD formulations on the market.”
“CBD will displace the majority of pharmaceutical drugs on the market,” says James. “We want to be there making that happen.”
Our connection to cannabis
James may sound like a man purely focused on the science – but his involvement in the world of CBD nutraceuticals is more personal than that.
“I’ve been injured in multiple motor vehicle accidents, including a fracture to my spine and major injuries to my knees and legs,” says James. “Cannabis, in particular, CBD, has allowed me to recover from not only the physical injuries but also the emotional and psychological trauma I suffered.”
Caring for a younger brother with a substantial head injury most of his adult life also helped James recognize the value of cannabis products in managing his brother’s symptoms.
“Five years ago, I was so frustrated with the lack of quality in the dispensary marketplace. I decided I had to launch my own business, dedicated to providing people with clean, safe, reputable access to cannabis,” says James.
From a fledgling business, James’s enterprise expanded to a large network of stores, now serving tens of thousands of clients annually.
“Helping so many people in this capacity taught me the value of the different cannabinoids and ultimately let me focus on CBD, which led me to start CBD Therapeutics,” says James.
Why being a part of the Pasha Brands family is important to us
James is nothing if not dedicated to the cause. He currently sits on Pasha’s Board of Directors, helping to develop a strategic direction for the company.
“Cannabis has just begun its future. It will become a major staple to the world’s development moving forward,” says James.
“We will not rest until we ensure that every Canadian is aware of the benefits of CBD and has access to it affordably and ubiquitously.”
