Owners, Katie Moodie and Brooke Brun, have been best friends since 2009. In 2013, they established kb Pure Essentials, LLC with the purpose of building a natural wellness brand that could help improve people’s quality of life. In late 2014, Brooke began to experience health issues from her anti-seizure medications. Her belief was that she was being over- medicated and there had to be a better way to control the seizures without the debilitating side effects. Katie assisted Brooke in her research and they discovered CBD, a non-psychoactive compound in cannabis, was being tested on children with epilepsy. Brooke tried several different brands of CBD products on the market at that time, and none of them provided the results she was hoping for. Since Katie and Brooke were already in the business of formulating products, they decided to try and make the CBD oil themselves. Over months of trial and error in their extraction and personal experimentation, Brooke and Katie came up with an oil that allowed Brooke to reduce her medication by 1000mg per day and still remain seizure free. She is now on what doctors consider a “non- therapeutic dose” of pharmaceutical medication combined with KB Hemp CBD Oil. Brooke noticed not only that her seizures were controlled, but she no longer suffered from chronic depression and anxiety, and was able to sleep through the night.
They began to share their Hemp CBD Oil with family and friends who they felt may benefit from the oil. The feedback received gave them the motivation to re- brand the company, focusing on the medicinal benefits of cannabis. In April 2015, Brooke and Katie began to incorporate their hemp CBD oil into their natural skin care line. A couple months later, they began to offer their Hemp CBD Oil as an internal supplement that could provide relief from several inflamm- atory and neurological disorders. They have now developed a full Hemp CBD Oil wellness and personal care line of products that continues to grow in both quality and demand.
They have a strong customer base and community following which has pushed them to become greatly involved in the scientific and professional cannabis communities. They have become more than just another brand of natural products; they have evolved into company that people trust and rely on for relief from their physical and emotional pain. kb Pure Essentials exists because Katie and Brooke have experienced the powerful benefits of cannabis, and it is their mission to eliminate the stigma surrounding this super-herb and provide quality products that can help change lives.
