Ojai Energetics Story:
One day, studying various Permaculture plants, Will came across people discussing hemp and its amazing potential to help heal humanity and the planet. Will had long known that hemp was a profound plant, and with further research he discovered that what he knew was just scratching the surface. He has since learned that hemp can fuel cars, replace the petroleum-based plastics industry, make anti-fungal and anti-microbial fibers and clothes, and produce paper. Hemp is a complete protein source, it can produce medicine for countless conditions, and it has the optimal balance of omega 6 and 3 fatty acids for humans. It creates Ozone, can replace concrete, and can be raised sustainably in polyculture systems!
While researching hemp’s legality in the US, Will came across an article about how a CBD-rich oil, which is a non-psychoactive derivative of hemp, was federally legal to sell in the US, just like hemp seed oil. He learned that CBD was deficient in our bodies, and how numerous studies have shown it to be vital for optimal health and living. He looked for a good product to try and could not find one that he would want to put in his body. He knew he had to help as many people gain access to safe, pure, and high-quality CBD products as he could. So, using his network of health, science, and sustainability professionals, he set out to form a value-driven company that could provide the purest, healthiest, and most ethically produced CBD products on the market. Ojai Energetics was born.

Stanton’s passion follows in step with his godfather Paul Newman, to help people with illnesses and quality of life.
Stanton says: “My body has endured some serious injuries, long-term side effects, along with significant aches and pains. I am a firm believer in its effectiveness and have witnessed firsthand its ability to provide support for post sport recovery and overall wellbeing. I can’t stress enough how valuable this phytonutrient is for athletes like myself who suffer the consequences of an active lifestyle and career. We need to break down the stigma associated with this natural plant and its cannabinoids that effectively work with our body’s own endocannabinoid system.”
