From Hemp, With Love.
At the POPSUGAR Play/Ground event held in New York City June 21 – 23, we teamed up with Alison Brie to celebrate the launch of Manitoba Harvest Broad Spectrum Hemp Extract with CBD. For us, this launch is kind of a big deal. We’ve spent the last 20 years spreading our love for hemp foods. Now we’re using our expertise to create the highest-quality extract products, so you can relax and feel good about enjoying hemp goodness in a whole new way.

“Power Your Happily Ever After” was the theme of the woman-led event focused on empowering women to live their best life. Brands and messages focused on wellness, meditation and food gathered to inspire attendees to explore and play as they heard from celebrities and influential leaders. Next to “hemp”, “play” is our favorite 4-letter word and we were thrilled to be a part of the action. We believe that the transformative power of hemp plays a big part of enjoying our lives to the fullest and we had a great time sharing why we’re hemp’s biggest fans.

Manitoba Harvest presented an engaging and informative panel, “CBD: Not Your Average Flower,” which was all about the myriad of benefits of CBD as well as clearing up misconceptions about hemp. Alison served as a featured guest and she shared how our products play a role in her daily life, especially with her work as an actress on the successful Netflix series “GLOW”. “This product is all about starting wellness from the inside out and that’s something I believe strongly in, as well. I’ve been using the Manitoba Harvest Broad Spectrum Oil Drops. I’ll place the peppermint drops under my tongue or mix in my tea. Often when we’re shooting and training really hard, I’ll pair that with an Epsom salt bath before bed. I’m seldom on a good sleep schedule when we’re filming. It’s nice to have something that calms my mind before bed but is not a heavy sedative.”

We lead with integrity and it was wonderful to hear Alison referencing that when she spoke about partnering with us. “I love Manitoba Harvest Broad Spectrum with CBD because I’ve been using their products for years. They’ve been working with hemp for over 20 years. They know the plant so well and they’ve tested so thoroughly that you can feel confident in the product.” Shop CBD Oil Drops.
