Episode 015

The topic of CBD is surprisingly one of the most requested from my listeners! Maybe you’ve heard moms talking about CBD in passing or have seen it mentioned online. Maybe you’re not 100% sure what CBD is, maybe you already know, maybe you use it, maybe you’ve thought about using it, or maybe you’re one of many who aren’t even sure if it’s legal or not? It doesn’t matter which of those describes you…this highly anticipated episode is for you! There are a lot of takeaways from today’s show as we pull back the curtain on CBD.

Will Kleidon is here to share with us not only what CBD is, but fascinating information about its use, it’s history, and his incredible company Ojai Energetics.

Will Kleidon is an award-winning pioneer and futurist of the Cannabis industry. He is known for cracking the CBD code by creating the most effective and clean CBD rich hemp products on the planet.

 Featured in Cheddar, Forbes, Money, Entrepreneur, and the LA Times, he is a regular keynote of the Cannabis Forum and BevNET. Will is a subject matter expert when it comes to the art, science, and technology of the Cannabis business, history of hemp, and what it means to our future.

 As early as 17 years old, Will organized and implemented a sustainability fair which drew over 25 organizations and 500 attendees. He studied permaculture in Australia and achieved the second highest nationally accredited certification in Permaculture Design. 

After searching for a CBD rich hemp oil for a personal need in 2014, he couldn’t find one that was made without synthetic fillers, had third-party batch testing results, and used organic ingredients.

 Not only did he set out to create the most effective and clean CBD rich hemp oil products, but he was also determined to align them with his love and care for the earth and all of its inhabitants. And so, Ojai Energetics was born, as the first Public Benefit Corporation in its industry.

 Ojai Energetics is a triple bottom line driven cannabis technology company with a primary focus on the organic and science-driven nutraceutical and medical sectors.

They’re also one of my favorite brands…be sure to head over to after the show for more information. 

Will believes hemp is a catalyst for things getting better…and he’s walking the walk. He created 
Ojai Energetics to help deliver goodness to the world.
