A Catalyst for Good
Love is the answer is Will’s mantra for a reason: at sixteen years old, he had a near-death experience. What came out of it was an epiphany that he should let love guide his life. Quickly, he realized that love should also be an integral part of his career. While in college, he found that capital was needed to go into regenerative solutions that weren’t getting invested there fast enough. The best way to do that was to start a business with a triple bottom line policy. As such, his company could help people and the planet while still being profitable. He launched Ojai Energetics as part of his college curriculum and a senior project. That’s how Ojai Energetics was born. With an emphasis on making people and the earth feel good, the California-based company sells the only 100 percent USDA organic, water-soluble, full-spectrum CBD elixir on the planet. Will Kleidon believes Hemp is a catalyst for things getting better. That’s why Ojai Energetics is set out to deliver goodness and love to the world.
Will Kleidon Leading With Love
In 2014, Will saw a need for cleaner CBD products. The market was flooded with CBD-rich hemp oil made with synthetic fillers and without third-party batch testing results. He wanted to create an organic CBD oil he could feel confident taking and sharing with friends and family. With this in mind, Ojai Energetics became the first Public Benefit Corporation in the space. Being able to service and uplift humanity and all life by providing the most affordable and effective hemp products motivates Will Kleidon to continue innovating.
The Will Kleidon Manifesto, “Love is the Answer” and Ojai Energetics
The relationship between CBD and love might not be evident to all. But to Will, it is. Indeed, the endocannabinoid system regulates the entire human body. CBD oil takes care of yourself and makes you feel better. It helps you love yourself. In turn, your body and mind are ready to love others. To Will, if you’re feeling good, you are more likely to help someone else feel good. In an interview with the Cannabis Law Report, Will said, “We will always ensure from seed to planting to the final products in your hands that we have made the world a better place without cutting corners.”
Loving Yourself, Others, and the Planet
Ojai Energetics is on a mission to live out the Will Kleidon manifesto by putting people and the planet before profits while being business-savvy. Ojai Energetics emphasizes building relationships with the farmers who grow the ingredients. Additionally, the company only supports regenerative farming practices. This means that when buying CBD products by Ojai Energetics, customers are supporting topsoil and biodiversity. What’s more, Will Kleidon and his team run their servers with wind energy and ensure fair trade wages. They also make sure that those who cannot afford their products still have access to them. Ojai Energetics will not turn anyone away, because love is the answer.
In Honor of Will Kleidon’s Birthday: Igniting A Horti-cultural Evolution!
When Will celebrates another year around the sun on September 16th, he will donate 11% of Ojai Energetics sales for the day to one of his favorite charities – Ron Finley Project. The organization focuses on bringing culture and community together while ending food deserts where fresh, healthy food isn’t available for entire communities. Ron envisions a world where gardening is cool, where kids eat the food they grow, and where organizations embrace the act of growing, knowing and sharing the best of the earth’s fresh-grown food.
