BREVARD, N.C. (March 7, 2019) – Gaia Herbs, the leading herbal brand in North America, will unveil its new, modern packaging and three new product lines: Hemp, Nootropics, and Mushroom & Herbs Functional Powders, at Natural Products Expo West on March 7 – 9. Expo West attendees will be among the first to experience these exciting new innovations and are invited to visit Gaia Herbs booth #4139 for samples and additional information.

“As a brand that has been a pioneer in the herbal industry for more than three decades, we are excited to reveal our new packaging at Expo West. Our new design further reinforces our mission of connecting plants and people with beautiful close-up images of the heroes of our supplements—the herbs. We are proud to have developed the design completely in-house, leveraging the talent of Gaia Herbs’ visionary Brand Experience team. In addition to our new look, we will also be introducing our latest innovative products that will help people on their wellness journeys,” said Elena Lécué, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Gaia Herbs. “We are particularly excited about our new Hemp line. Due to the recent passage of the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 (also known as the 2018 Farm Bill), which removed all parts of the Hemp plant from being categorized as a Schedule I substance under the Controlled Substances Act in the United States, the marketplace is seeing an influx of Hemp products of varying quality. As the leading herbal brand, Gaia Herbs is proud to be bringing a new Hemp line to the market of the quality that consumers have come to expect from our brand, that is fully traceable to the source at meetyourherbs.com®, our comprehensive transparency program. In addition to that, Gaia Hemp extract is made from sun-grown American Hemp flowers, ensuring that people can feel confident buying Hemp from a brand they love and trust. We will also be debuting our new Nootropics line, featuring Gaia-grown™ Bacopa, and three new functional blends of Mushrooms & Herbs, providing support for cognitive, energy, and immune health.”*

The three new product lines transform Nature's wisdom into herbal formulas, combining science and tradition to create proprietary blends rooted in purity, potency, and integrity. Additional product details include: 

Hemp: As pioneers and leaders in the herbal industry for over thirty years, Gaia Herbs is committed to producing some of the highest quality plant-based herbal supplements in the world, delivering the full expression of Nature. Gaia Herbs is pleased to introduce two new Hemp products: Hemp Full Spectrum Extract 10 mg and Hemp Full Spectrum Extract 20 mg — bringing our same reverence for plants and focus on quality to our new Hemp line. 

Gaia Herbs Full Spectrum Hemp Extract contains less than 0.2% THC and is made with sun-grown American Hemp flowers. Gaia chose to use the Hemp flowers as they are known to be the main source of cannabinoids compared to other parts of the Hemp plant. Unlike products with isolated CBD, Gaia’s full spectrum Hemp oil contains a wide array of cannabinoids representing the synergy naturally found in the Hemp plant. 

Through Gaia’s industry-leading Meet Your Herbs® traceability program, people can enter the ID number located on the back of their Gaia Herbs Full Spectrum Hemp Extract and learn where the Hemp came from; how it was grown, harvested and extracted; and the tests it underwent to validate its purity, integrity, and potency. Gaia Herbs is one of the few companies producing Hemp products in the world that allows you to do this for a simple reason: Gaia has nothing to hide and everything to share. 

Gaia Herbs Hemp is available in two liquid potencies based on cannabinoids per serving. SRP $44.99 (10mg/mL, 1oz), $79.99 (10mg/mL, 2oz), $79.99 (20mg/mL, 1oz), and $129.99 (20mg/mL, 2oz). As a Certified B Corporation® dedicated to using business as a force for good™, Gaia Herbs is excited to announce that a portion of the proceeds from the sale of all Gaia Herbs Hemp products will be donated to support U.S. family farmers.

  • Bacopa: Made with Gaia-grown™ Bacopa to promote a healthy, thriving mind.* When Gaia was unable to find Bacopa that met their rigorous quality standards, the company began a three-year cultivation process to grow its own Bacopa crop, becoming one of the only U.S. grown sources for this Ayurvedic herb. SRP $17.99 (60ct)

  • Agile Mind: Made with Bacopa, Turmeric and Ginkgo— a synergistic formula that supports healthy brain function and helps maintain healthy recall.* SRP $41.99 (60ct)

  • Nootropic Focus: Made with Saffron, Spearmint and Lemon Balm to support healthy concentration to keep up with life’s demands.* SRP $18.99 (20ct), $34.99 (40ct)

Healing through Hemp…and Honey

With a mission to support veterans and educate consumers about natural health, Colorado Hemp Honey hits the road to introduce Double-Strength Raw Relief Honey with 30 milligrams of whole plant hemp extract per serving.

Parker, CO (January 30, 2019) – Colorado Hemp Honey, the original hemp honey company, will hit the road this spring at leading healthy lifestyles expositions in the U.S. to introduce its new Double-Strength Raw Relief artisan honey with 30 milligrams of full-spectrum, naturally occurring hemp extract per serving. The company’s goal is to educate people about sustainable and organic agriculture and the importance of preserving bee health, along with showcasing its line of hemp-infused honeys at Natural Products Expo West, the world’s largest natural products trade show in Anaheim, CA. Colorado Hemp Honey also will feature its products at the 6th Annual NoCo Hemp Expo, the nation’s largest gathering of hemp industry professionals, in Denver, March 29-30.

Further, the company is dedicated to supporting the veteran and service-animal communities through its various philanthropic partnerships.

“We can’t wait to get out there and talk with healthy lifestyles influencers, advocates, business leaders and enthusiasts about the tremendous benefits of CBD and full spectrum, whole-plant hemp extract,” said beekeeper and farmer Nick French, co-founder with his wife Ali French of Frangiosa Farms, which produces Colorado Hemp Honey. “The naturally occurring CBD in our products calms the mind and soothes the body, supporting its inflammatory response and toning the endocannabinoid system.”

Frangiosa Farms, founded in 2008 in Parker, CO, to create local artisan neighborhood honey using organic practices, is dedicated to responsible beekeeping in the face of the bee population decline through community education, backyard beekeeping workshops, and support of locally sourced raw honey. In 2015, Nick and Ali created Colorado Hemp Honey using raw honey from the farm, full-spectrum, plant-based, non-isolate hemp extract, and organic essential oils.

Frangiosa Farms donates 10 cents from every jar of honey sold to Veterans to Farmers, with a mission to “train veterans in agricultural systems, technologies and business operations for a fulfilling and sustainable lifestyle.” Similarly, the company donates a portion of each jar of Colorado Hemp Honey Pet Tincture sold to support Freedom Service Dogs of America, which helps train and transform the lives of shelter dogs to serve as companion animals for veterans and others suffering from serious injury.

Combining the Raw Power of Hemp and Honey
Colorado Hemp Honey combines the healing powers of raw honey, organic essential oils, and cannabinoid-rich whole hemp extracts in a product formulated to help provide relief. Double-Strength Raw Relief contains twice as much full-spectrum hemp extract as the company’s popular Relief honey without sacrificing any of the delicious sweetness and complexity.

Colorado Hemp Honey is made from 100 percent pure, raw Rocky Mountain honey directly from the farm’s hives and industrial hemp from its fields and those of other Colorado farmers. Colorado Hemp Honey uses a proprietary blend of Colorado-grown, non-GMO, pesticide-free hemp and handles it gently to preserve terpenes and phytonutrients such as amino acids, carbohydrates, vitamins (including B1, B2, B6, D, and E), fatty acids (including omega 3 and 6), and trace minerals (including iron, zinc, calcium, magnesium, and potassium).

In addition to hemp honey in jars and sticks, Colorado Hemp Honey produces a line of diverse products, including pet tinctures with propolis, hemp-infused coffee and hemp honey chocolates. All products are triple tested for purity and potency.

Colorado Hemp Honey products are available in leading retail stores and natural food and pet retailers nationwide and online at www.coloradohemphoney.com. For wholesale inquiries, contact Dave Podesta, dave@frangiosafarms.com415.310.1659.
