Where To Find Medterra CBD In The Grocery Stores

Attention CBD lovers, we’ve got some good news: Medterra CBD is now available in grocery stores across the country.

It used to be that finding premium CBD was hard — you either had to search through tons of clunky e-commerce websites or visit a full-blown cannabis dispensary — but no more.

Keep reading to learn why finding premium Medterra CBD products is now easier than ever.

CBD Stats

CBD has gotten popular in the last several years — really popular. Data from SPINS, a leading retail trends source, shows that people have come to consider CBD just as much of a staple as their food products/groceries. Accordingly, they’ve come to expect that CBD will be available at their grocery stores. [1

What makes all these consumers like-minded in their love for CBD? Another set of data (this one from the Harris Poll) sums it up pretty well. The vast majority of Americans are aware of CBD’s health benefits, and most Americans who actually take CBD take it to relax, sleep better, and destress. As Quartz so aptly puts it, “Americans are taking CBD as a cure-all for the modern condition.” [2]

As the CBD industry continues to grow, so do consumers’ expectations. Millions of people have incorporated CBD into their day-to-day lives. Why not incorporate it into day-to-day shopping, too? Based on Medterra’s announcement, this idea just got a whole lot more realistic.

Why Medterra?

Let’s face it: the CBD market has gotten crowded. Dozens of seemingly premium brands crowd the average person’s attention the moment they begin shopping for a CBD product. 

What makes Medterra different?

If we had to pick just one thing, we’d point to its obsessively high quality. Medterra has one of the most rigorous testing standards on the market. They’ve also developed an industry-first in-house Medical Advisory Board that carefully appraises both new and existing products. 

Speaking of products, all of Medterra CBD products are made with 100% US-grown organic hemp. Each product’s stats are available for all the world to see, available via the linked QR codes present on every product package and online. Our COA’s (certificates of analysis) are thorough and flawless. 

Meanwhile, Medterra’s topicals are free from synthetic ingredients, plasticizers, or contaminants. They get their power from naturally derived, sustainably sourced ingredients — giving consumers the power to help drive the skincare industry into a more sustainable future.

Summer CBD Must Haves

Summer is here, and it’s time to get out of the house and enjoy the sun! Whether you’re barbecuing, swimming, hiking, biking, or just lounging around on the back porch, we’ve got the CBD you need to help you have a summer free of stress and discomfort. 

CBD is great for helping with relaxation, physical discomfort, and finding balance, making it perfect for helping you make the most of your summer. Our CBD summer selection is specially curated to help you care for everything summer can throw at you, be it sunburns, summer colds, or helping you (or your dog) recover from long days out in the sun. 

CBD + Manuka Cream

If you’ve been spending more time inside than usual lately, it can be really easy to overdo it with the sun, and under-do it with the sunscreen. We’ve been there, and we’ve got a cream for that. 

Made with New Zealand Manuka Honey, our CBD + Manuka Cream is a perfect summer addition to your skin care routine. This potent honey makes our CBD + Manuka cream strong and effective at relieving, cleaning, and restoring. It is blended with either 125 or 250 mg of our CBD to create a cream that soothes the skin, no matter what it’s been through.

Relief + Recovery Roll On

Summer weather means it’s time to get active. But if it’s been a while since you last exercised (or even if it hasn’t), getting active can mean soreness and aches in your muscles and joints. 

Our Relief + Recovery Roll On is designed to target aches at the source with a powerful combination of CBD + Arnica and Menthol. The cooling effects of this powerful trio penetrate deep into sore spots to provide immediate relief. And with a roll on stick designed for convenient on the go application, you’ll be able to bring it with you to all of your favorite activities. 

Immune Boost Gummies

Summer goes very quickly and the good weather only lasts so long. There can be a lot of pressure to make the most of it, and running from activity to activity can wear you down. 

If you’re looking to bolster your immune system, we recommend keeping some of our Immune Boost Gummies on hand. Made with our THC-free CBD Isolate and natural immune system super supporters like Vitamin C, Zinc, and Elderberry, these delicious gummies will give your immune system the boost it needs to keep you going all summer.

Pet Tinctures

Summer is one of the best times for pets. But it also brings a lot of things that can stress them out. Travel, you returning to work, and 4th of July fireworks can all make this a difficult season.

CBD can help your animals relax in the same way that it helps you. Our CBD Drops for pets, will help keep your favorite friend relaxed and calm during those stressful times. Available in three flavors (Chicken, Beef, & Unflavored) to cater to picky palates, these precisely dosed drops are perfect for helping your pet find the same sense of calm and relaxation that CBD brings you. 

Pet Joint Support Chews

Long walks in the park, running down hiking trails, and getting out and about make this an amazing time for pets. But with all that extra activity comes extra stress on their joints. 

Help keep your pet feeling their best with our Peanut Butter flavored Joint Support Chews. These precisely dosed CBD chews are great for older pets who are having trouble with their joints, or helping younger pets stay active. Glucosamine, MSM, and Chondroitin work together with CBD to soothe, protect, and care for aching joints, and help your pet feel their best. 

True Full Spectrum Capsules

After a long day at work or out in the sun, it’s great to be able to kick off your shoes (or sandals) and really unwind, but sometimes it’s hard not to bring the stress of the day home with you. 

Our True Full Spectrum Capsules are perfect for diving into a deeper, more relaxing CBD experience. Made with the full range of beneficial cannabinoids found in the hemp plant – including 2mg of THC – these vegan capsules are designed to help you unwind. They’re great for relaxing on the couch, channeling your creative side, or having an alcohol-free get together. 

Medterra Wellness

As the days get longer and the nights get warmer, it’s important to be able to take the time to enjoy the summer. And to really enjoy it, you need to be feeling your best from morning to night. 

With the Medterra Wellness line, we’re bringing you nature’s greatest hits – powerful adaptogens, botanicals, and natural ingredients paired with our Ultra Broad Spectrum™ CBD in a variety of different forms. Fight stress, improve sleep, bolster your immune system, and relieve discomfort with all-natural gummies, elixirs, and capsules for all of your CBD needs.

Medterra Pride: Your True Self, 365 Days a Year

Happy Pride Month from the Medterra family! We’d like to take this opportunity to leverage our platform to share our love, appreciation, and support for our LGBTQ+ team members, friends, family, and customers. 

When Medterra first started, we wanted to bring CBD to everyone. But as we’ve grown as a company, as a team, and as a diverse group of individuals, we realized that that isn’t enough. For us, CBD is about reducing the stress and discomfort that life brings, and in doing so, learning to embrace our true selves – the versions of us that can so often get buried underneath the difficult realities of everyday life. 

In the spirit of Pride Month, we would like to announce that we are launching a partnership with True Colors United, an organization that supports and advocates for LGBTQ+ youth and youth of color who are experiencing homelessness. 

True Colors United is working to create a world in which every LGBTQ+ young person, wherever they live, is celebrated for being their authentic selves. LGBTQ+ youth have a 120% higher risk of experiencing homelessness – often the result of family rejection or discrimination based on their gender identity or sexual orientation. 

Research shows that up to 40% of the homeless youth population is LGBTQ+, a large disparity from their representation in the general population. These young people have unique needs like identity and transition-related support that not all providers have the knowledge or resources to assist with. 

By providing training and education programs to communities and service providers, advocating on the local, state, and federal levels, and collaborating with youth action programs, True Colors United is working to prevent youth homelessness.

To help do our part, we are launching our Pride Bundle, which will be available at 40% off, and donating 10% of the proceeds to True Colors United.

Our Pride Bundle is designed to help you with every step of your day, from morning to night, so that you can feel like your true self – free of stress, and ready to live each day to the fullest. In it, you’ll find: 

Good Morning Capsules

Fast-acting Liposomal CBD paired with Caffeine and B-Vitamins, plus adaptogens like Maca and Turmeric to help you get a fresh start on the day, maintain balance, and have the energy to take on everything you need to do. 

True Full Spectrum Drops

These delicious Chocolate-Mint drops contain the full range of benefits the hemp plant has to offer – including 2mg of THC in each dose. They’re perfect for de-stressing after a hard day at work and finding a deeper, more relaxing CBD experience. 

Sleep Tight Gummies

Get your best night’s sleep every night. These Strawberry-flavored gummies contain 25mg of CBD Isolate and 2mg of Melatonin in each dose + sleep promoting botanicals like Chamomile, Lemon Balm and Passion Flower. 

We’re committed to using the power of CBD to do good in the world – not just during Pride Month, but 365 days a year. 

We would love for you to join us in support of True Colors United. If you would like to learn more about their mission, you can find their information here, and if you would like to support them directly, you can find their donations page here

Happy Pride Month, 

From Medterra

The CBDo’s and Don’ts of Finding Safe, Effective CBD

There’s Some Crazy Stuff Out There

A quick search online will turn up all sorts of CBD products, from tinctures and gummies to even things like CBD infused pillows, workout clothes, and dental floss. Bars are now adding CBD cocktails to their menus, and your local coffee shop may even be willing to put it in your latte. In some places, you can even find CBD at your local gas station or grocery store. 

But with all of these options floating around, you may be starting to wonder which ones are worth trying. And if you’ve been duped by a visually appealing CBD product that didn’t actually do anything, you may be wondering if any CBD is worth trying. 

To help you find safe, effective CBD products that actually work, we put together an easy to follow guide to the do’s and don’ts of CBD. 

Do: Choose products from certified American hemp farms

CBD, like the food we eat, is grown commercially in the U.S. And just like the food we eat, rigorous safety and quality standards are paramount to ensuring that your CBD is safe. Look for products that are certified by the U.S. Hemp Authority. This industry-leading certification holds hemp growers and CBD producers to the highest of standards when it comes to farming, harvesting, manufacturing, and testing.

Don’t: Buy CBD from just anyone

That guy you met at a party with the “totally legit hydroponic setup” in his closet isn’t someone you should be buying tomatoes from, let alone CBD. Also, we’d recommend avoiding any brownies he’s baked. 

Do: Buy rigorously tested CBD products developed with the input of doctors

It’s important to know not just what’s in your CBD, but how much of it is present in each dose. Choose CBD from companies that partner with independent, third-party labs to test their products regularly, and post their most recent testing results and certificates of analysis. And since CBD is used to help with a variety of different problems from stress to discomfort to sleep, look for products developed with the input of doctors who understand these issues. 

Don’t: Buy CBD that stresses out your mother-in-law

Or your dad, your grandma, yourself, or even your next door neighbor. With an untested product you’re never going to be exactly sure what you’re getting. So go for CBD you can share with your loved ones (or neighbors) and destress together. 

Do: Buy CBD that’s available in a wide variety of forms to suit your specific needs

CBD is not one size fits all, and it’s important to be able to try different types and delivery methods to find what works best for you. Whether it’s a flavored gummy, carefully-controlled capsule, or tweakable tincture, it’s worth it to take the time to find the ingestion method that’s right for you. And having the option to choose between Isolate, Broad Spectrum, and Full Spectrum CBD allows you to find what works best for your body and your specific needs. 

Don’t: Buy one-off novelty items

That CBD toilet paper might seem like a great idea (though hopefully not), but chances are it’s crap. One-off CBD novelty items are just that – novelties. Without a viable delivery method,  consistent dosing, and scientifically-verifiable efficacy, you’re basically just flushing money down the drain.

Do: Buy CBD that consistently delivers the amount it says it does

Look for packages with clear labeling that let you know exactly how much is in each serving, and how large a serving size is, and avoid things that make you guess. Using a consistent dosage allows you to experiment to find out exactly how much CBD works best for your body. Having different strengths available can be good for helping with different issues – the amount you need to destress could be significantly less than what you need to fall asleep. 

Don’t: Buy CBD made by some guy in his garage

This one feels like it should be obvious, but some just can’t resist an “entrepreneur.” Like our van-dwelling friend from earlier, no matter how convincing your cousin’s friend’s Facebook friend is, a home-brewed CBD is never going to be consistently dosed and safe to use. 

The CBDo’s and Don’ts

CBDo: be careful! Only buy safe, trusted CBD that’s been certified and tested, doctor approved, and is available in a variety of strengths and ingestion methods. 

CBDon’t: use unverified, unreliable, unsafe CBD! It’s honestly easier than you’d think. Just follow this guide and be wary of products that don’t live up your highest standards.

Does CBD Oil Expire? CBD’s Shelf Life Explained

Does CBD oil ever go bad? Does it have an expiration date?

Yes, it does — but the good news is that CBD oil is more shelf-stable than most supplements. 

CBD oil usually stays ‘fresh’ and biologically active for years. Here’s what you need to know about CBD oil’s shelf life. 

  • CBD oil’s shelf life
  • Factors that affect CBD’s shelf life
  • How to determine CBD’s freshness
  • Our CBD’s expiration date

CBD oil’s shelf life

The terpenes and flavones found in CBD oils/tinctures act as antioxidants that allow these products to last for a long time. 

How long? Many experts say 14-24 months. [1] To stay extra safe, we recommend using our products within 12 months. 

To learn more about CBD oil and how to use it, click here

Factors that affect CBD’s shelf life

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a fat-soluble compound, which means that it’s most effective when coupled with fatty acids. 

And the stablest, healthiest fatty acids of all — contrary to popular belief — are actually medium-chain and long-chain saturated fats (MCT’s and LCT’s). Studies show that these fats are pro-metabolism and anti-stress. [2]

Why are MCTs so healthy? Largely because of their molecular stability.  Saturated fats remain stable and unoxidized whether they’re sitting on a shelf or helping structure a body’s cells. [3]

In other words, MCT oil is the best carrier oil for CBD for the same reason that it’s so healthy for us. Studies have shown that only cannabinoids that are infused into MCT oil or coconut oil (which is 70% MCTs) are resistant to light/heat-induced degradation. [4]

How to determine CBD’s freshness

Determining your CBD oil’s freshness is easy. Just taste it! If it tastes rancid or overly bitter, it probably is. 

If the oil tastes fresh, earthy, or minty, however, it’s probably fresh. And this taste test is just the start. If you opt for a Medterra CBD product you’ll have more quantifiable ways to determine the freshness of your CBD oil. 

Our CBD’s expiration date

All Medterra products are labeled with a QR code that links to their lab tests/COA’s. Simply scan the code using your phone and you’ll be led to a document that reveals their expiration date. 

Our CBD’s expiration date is typically set 24 months after its production date. To help your CBD Stay as fresh as possible throughout this time period, be sure to keep it in a dark, cool place. 

Summing things up

When it comes to CBD oil, quality matters. One of our goals at Medterra is to deliver hemp’s purest, freshest ‘essence’ to you. 

We do this by using the stablest carrier oil available, placing our CBD in dark bottles, and being conservative with product expiration dates.

Medterra Launches Our True Full Spectrum CBD Line

Today is an incredible moment for Medterra. 

We ripped up our old rulebook to meet the growing needs of our customers and stay in line with legislation with our new product line, True Full Spectrum.

With guidance from our Medical Advisory Board and with respect to our brand quality and purity standards, we are launching the True Full Spectrum line — our first CBD line with THC. 

Our True Full Spectrum contains a 5:1 ratio of CBD to other hemp compounds while staying within the legal requirements of less than 0.3% THC by weight with a standardized 2mg THC per serving in each product. With the 5:1 ratio, we are able to activate the ECS receptors and achieve an enhanced entourage effect designed to maintain balance, enrich sleep, and promote deep relaxation.

Full Spectrum Medterra CBD

With so many CBD products on the market, we’re launching True Full Spectrum with the same transparency we’ve always believed is so important to our customers. Our research revealed to us that consumers often have no idea how much THC is present in the full spectrum products they’re purchasing from brands. Because of that, Medterra’s True Full Spectrum products clearly display the letters “THC” and the amount of THC on every label. As a company, we felt a responsibility to correct for this lack of transparency so that current CBD customers and new customers alike have the best possible shopping experience. 

In addition, each product is made from 100% organically grown hemp from the United States (also U.S. Hemp Authority certified) and includes a Certificate of Analysis detailing the ingredients and product safety. Our True Full Spectrum products are also vegan and non-genetically modified. 

Full Spectrum CBD

True Full Spectrum is available in gummies, capsules, and drops: 

  • Gummies – Vegan and all-natural flavors with two options: Original formula in citrus flavor and Deep Sleep formula with 3mg melatonin in mixed berry:
    • 30ct jar: 25mg CBD, 2mg THC per serving – $59.99
  • Capsules – Vegan and unflavored liquid capsules contain:
    • 60ct bottle: 50mg CBD, 2mg THC per serving – $109.99
  • Drops – Available in citrus and chocolate mint flavors in three strengths:
    • 15ml bottle: 50mg CBD, 2mg THC per serving- $49.99
    • 30ml bottle: 50mg CBD, 2mg THC per serving – $99.99
    • 30 ml bottle: 100mg, 2mg THC per serving – $169.99

When I started Medterra in 2017, the goal was to help change people’s lives. But as we have continued to grow, it has become increasingly clear that CBD is a deeply personal experience. No one product will be right for everyone, and no two people will feel the same benefits from the same product. With our Full Spectrum line, our goal is to cater to our dedicated customers who have been asking us for more – for a deeper CBD experience, and a more complete set of benefits. 

The team at Medterra has researched heavily into the needs of our customers. We have read their reviews, listened to their stories, and shared in their victories. And we have combined their invaluable insights with the results of the 2020 Brightfield CBD Consumer Report to ensure that creating a Full Spectrum CBD line is the correct choice, with regards to both our customers and CBD consumers as a whole. 

Medterra has gone from a wild idea between two friends to the first brand to produce isolate, broad spectrum, and full spectrum CBD. Since the beginning, our goal has always been to do things differently – to disrupt the CBD industry and to make CBD products for everyone. Our True Full Spectrum line is the culmination of this goal, and I could not be more proud of it and the amazing team that has worked tirelessly to develop it. 

We now have a CBD product line available for our customers that are looking for a deeper CBD experience, and who want the benefits of THC without the worry of psychoactive effects when taking the recommended serving size. With this, Medterra is reshaping the CBD industry. 

Billy Kemper, Big Wave World Tour Champion and 4-time winner of Peahi Challenge, is an early user of the line. Our new True Full Spectrum line played a crucial role in his recovery from life-altering injuries in February 2020. 

Billy Kemper CBD Drops

I was fortunate enough to sit down with Billy to learn how True Full Spectrum helped in his recovery. Billy shared with me, “The new True Full Spectrum line plays a vital role in my day-to-day routine in keeping me rested and calm, and my body moving while easing any discomfort. It’s the best on the market – get the full benefits of the hemp plant from one the most trusted brands in the industry.”

Learning about Billy’s story showed us there was a more meaningful role with this new, beneficial product in helping people with their recovery journey with ease and less stress on the body. 

Our True Full Spectrum line is the culmination of years of thought and hard work, hard-fought shifts in legislation, and evolving consumer interest. But more than that, it is a testament to the diligence of the Medterra team, to the early mornings and long nights, and to the challenges we have overcome together to make this moment a reality. 

Our goal is to educate and provide our customers with the best and most powerful CBD options in a broad type of formats and formulas. As the CBD industry continues to evolve, Medterra will too. Our team of Medical Advisors and staff is staying at the forefront of innovation and research. As new behaviors change and legislation begins to adapt, we will keep moving forward to give our consumers the best possible CBD experience we can. 

It’s been so exciting to see our vision come to life. These new products unleash a whole new generation of CBD to everyone. True Full Spectrum CBD is a whole-body recovery tool (both mentally and physically) – for those needing additional support in their everyday life. I believe that we have created something amazing, a life-changing tool with the ability to empower people to live better. But we do not plan on stopping here. We will continue to grow and evolve, advocate for CBD, and revolutionize this amazing industry.

The Perfect Dose of Medterra CBD

The Perfect Dose Doesn’t Exist… 

How to master your CBD dosage throughout the day to maximize your benefits.  

Cannabidiol oil, or CBD, has become incredibly popular in the last few years thanks to its wide-reaching therapeutic effects on its users’ sense of mental and physical wellbeing.

Whether you’re one of the millions of people experienced with using natural CBD supplements, or you’re curious about getting started, pinpointing the ideal formulation, quantity and schedule for taking your CBD is one of the keys to maximizing the benefits.

CBD comes in a lot of different forms, strengths and targeted uses, and every person’s body will react somewhat differently to the substances one consumes.

But don’t fret! Figuring out the perfect regimen of CBD for your own specific goals and needs is easier than you might think. Let’s take a closer look.

What is microdosing?

The concept of microdosing may be familiar to some readers. It means taking very small amounts of a drug or supplement in order to test or benefit from its effects, while also avoiding harmful or unpleasant side-effects. Sounds good, right?

Similarly, in medicine, titration means finding the dose of a drug that offers the maximum benefit with minimum adverse effects. Well, lucky for us, CBD has extremely limited and mild known side-effects and has been found to be non-toxic in humans in doses up to 1,500mg/day. But the concept of titration, and more specifically self-titration, is still helpful in guiding CBD users.

Start with a microdose — how little can you take to feel any positive effect at all? Does increasing the dose from there cause improved results? And beyond what point do you no longer notice improvements? If you can answer these questions, you’re well on our way to optimizing how you use CBD in your daily self-care regimen.

Delivery Methods (not overnight shipping, but we offer that, too):

Before any attempt to establish your ideal personal daily dose of CBD, it is crucial to understand the difference in concentrations and bioavailability between the common delivery methods that are out there. We’re talking topical, sublingual and oral. 

When it comes to precise control, the clear choice is sublingual delivery in the form of a tincture. First, the dropper allows you to administer a specific quantity of CBD. Some quick math (or reading the label) will help you figure out the strength per serving.

For example, a 1,500mg strength tincture in a 30mL bottle will have roughly 30 1mL servings of 50mg each. Fractional markings on your dropper or counting individual drops allows for even greater precision.

Tinctures tend to have good bioavailability (the percentage of a substance that enters circulation when it is introduced to the body so as to have an active effect) of around 13% – 19%. For consistency and effectiveness, remember to use your tincture correctly by holding the oil under your tongue for at least 30 – 60 seconds before swallowing. This delivery method should produce effects within about 30-45 minutes or so, with effects lasting from 4 – 6 hours.

Oral (capsules or gummies) delivery of CBD has lower bioavailability than a tincture (around 10% – 20%), but offers other benefits like ease-of-use and potentially longer-lasting effects. When you consume CBD orally, it has to pass through your digestive system before taking effect, which can take one to two hours.

Though lowered bioavailability may mean less CBD ultimately gets to your bloodstream, the effects may last longer (roughly 4 – 8 hours), making this a great delivery method for formulations targeted at aiding sleep, for example.

Unlike sublingual and oral products that enter the bloodstream through your mouth or stomach, topical CBD like lotions and creams act primarily on the endocannabinoid receptors found in the body’s peripheral nervous system.

The result is that they can provide targeted, specific feelings of relief for the user’s body. Researchers believe that with topical CBD, bioavailability is very low. Which is to say that if you find CBD creams and lotions effective, you should feel confident using it as often as needed.

Is Less More? Maybe yes, maybe no.

Which brings us to the final piece of the puzzle: you. Yeah, you! If you’ve read this far, you must have some goals — the things you want to accomplish by incorporating CBD into your self-care routine.

Be clear about these goals first — what kind of psychological state do you want to promote (or prevent)? What type of physical challenges do you need to overcome in your day-to-day? How do you want to feel when you go to sleep at night, or wake up in the morning? There are various CBD supplements and formulations targeted at these fundamental wellness goals — choose what’s best for you.

Next, plan how best to distribute your supplements throughout your day and week. Do you need a boost in the morning? Sustained focus through the afternoon doldrums? Help getting to sleep? Make a schedule and stick to it. Daily consistency is believed to contribute greatly to CBD’s effectiveness.

Finally, using what you learned today, dial in your specific dose. Start small and find that key amount where you say, “ahh, there it is!” Continue to build from there while asking yourself if the benefits increase as well. If the benefits plateau or fall off, then step it back a notch. It might take a little patience and experimentation to find the perfect, individualized regimen, but the reward will be well worth the effort.

Don’t take my word for it — let’s hear from the pros:  

Most people seeking to maximize their benefit from CBD use various products and delivery methods throughout their day to establish a “loading dose” of CBD early on in the day–and then maintain it by grazing with different consumption methods throughout the day.

This strategy has the benefit of keeping levels of CBD relatively high throughout the day, so benefits can be experienced over a 24-hour period. For example, some athletes may take a sublingual tincture to start the day, and then top up with gummies or caps mid-morning or around lunch time.

Of course, we are all mindful of our immune system these days, so Immune Drops + CBD are a helpful addition to the daily CBD stack to enhance immune response with natural support compounds.

To wind down or recover from a busy or active lifestyle, many athletes like to treat themselves to a soothing topical cream combined with sleep-oriented products like our CBD + Melatonin capsules for sound rest.

Medterra’s Frontline Heroes

At Medterra, our goal during the COVID-19 crisis has been to give back by actively supporting those who have been the backbone of our communities throughout the evolution of the pandemic. Like many of you, we feel indebted to those who have continued to provide essential care and support at a time when it was most needed.

Help Support Our Frontline Heroes: Give 15/Get 15

In recognition of frontline healthcare workers’ invaluable work during this time, we’re proud to launch our Get 15%, Give 15% initiative. From June 16 – 23 we’re offering customers 15% off their entire purchase, while doubling down by donating an additional 15% of proceeds to the First Responders Children’s Foundation.

Shop Now

We feel a sense of profound respect and admiration for the contributions that frontline healthcare workers have made during COVID-19 pandemic. But we mustn’t forget the physical, spiritual and financial tolls endured are real, and they and their families could use our help.

10,000 Tinctures

If we rewind to when the crisis first started, we wanted to help our frontline responders during testing times. So, we donated over 10,000 CBD tinctures to frontline healthcare workers across the country to support the demanding conditions on the job.

We hoped our products would support focus, recovery, and restfulness, during the challenges faced by those in demanding fields like emergency healthcare.

An up-close picture of the realities that these frontline healthcare workers faced on their day-to-day can be seen at #StoriesFromTheFrontline on Instagram, where they shared the trials and tribulations they experienced on the frontline.

They shared the daily realities of working in COVID-19 intensive care units and other first responder roles supporting the pandemic response.

Whatever their specific story, it is clear that they–and their families–need support like never before.

#StoriesFromTheFrontline have inspired us at Medterra. They remind us that every action–no matter how big or small–have profound effects on the world around us.

Our Get 15%, Give 15% initiative aims to go further by giving first responders’ families the support they need right now.

In addition to direct savings for our customers, we’ll be donating 15% of online sales during the week to the First Responders Children’s Foundation COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund, which provides financial support to frontline workers and their families who are enduring hardship due to the COVID-19 crisis.

During a time of need, we aim to support frontline communities with a philosophy of holistic well-being, which goes beyond just “feeling good.” By considering the whole person–body, mind, spirit and emotions–we hope to provide the necessary tools to help keep our frontline communities and their families healthy, happy, and prosperous.

At Medterra, we believe our Get 15%/Give 15% initiative honors those holistic values. By caring for those who care for us–our customers, our healthcare providers, our essential workers, we hope to share the benefits of a life well-lived.

So whether you’re new to Medterra or longtime member of the Medterra family, there’s no better time to treat yourself to your favorite products. Taking care of yourself while giving back has never been easier or more affordable.

Meet Joe, Our Operations and Supply Chain Specialist

You Think Your Standards Are High?
You Should Meet Joe.

No matter what is going on in the world – Joe makes sure you get the highest quality products on time, every time.

When we started Medterra, we had one priority: to create the highest quality CBD products for our customers. If we were successful in that, we knew the rest would take care of itself.
Three years and 1,200,000 products later, the Medterra team thought we had this perfected. Turns out, you can always do better.

As Medterra expanded, we knew our supply chain and operations needed an expert. Actually, more than an expert – someone that had the right skills, and also had a personal connection to CBD.

Joe’s that guy and he’s working around the clock with his team. GMP, US Hemp Authority Certified, 3rd Party Lab Tested – what the CBD industry regards as high quality are now the basics for us.

Here’s are some of the steps Joe is taking to ensure Medterra products get to their destination:

1. Fulfillment partners in place to serve online, retail, and wholesale channels with geographic distribution of fulfillment warehouses across the country.

2. Agreements in place with several shipping partners for full supply chain redundancy.

3. Supply agreements with critical vendors to ensure supply of critical raw materials.

4. On site audit of all suppliers to ensure CGMP (Certified Good Manufacturing Practices) is being adhered to.

5. Rigorous raw materials and finished goods testing with 3rd party laboratories in California and Florida.

6. Formal process to track quality performance throughout the supply chain and respond quickly with corrective actions and countermeasures.

That means no matter what is going on in the world – Joe and Medterra are here for you. Your health and wellbeing are our priority. The principles of quality, adaptability, and resilience are driving Medterra to keep delivering high-quality products to you, our valued customers.

Medterra is here for you and so is Joe.

New Broad Spectrum Line

It’s that time of year again, one year is closing and another is about to begin!

We are thrilled about the year of success and growth we have had here at Medterra and we are anticipating an exciting 2020.  The start of a new year is all about improving and sparking positive change and we are truly taking that to heart. We are very excited to announce the launch of our Broad Spectrum Line.

Created with the same tried and true hemp that we derive all of our isolate from, our Broad Spectrum Products will also utilize the hemp from our dedicated fields in Kentucky.  The difference is in the extraction process, which is known as Chromatography. This unique method allows us to filter out all of the THC, while leaving other cannabinoids, terpenoids and fatty waxes.

Our formulation is going to feature several cannabinoids including CBG, CBN, CBC, CBDV, along with CBD.  These compounds are currently being studied and have shown promising results for their therapeutic properties.  An advantage to combining the organic components of the plant, leads to what is known as the Entourage Effect. The Entourage Effect is the collective synergy between cannabinoids, flavonoids, terpenes, and fatty acids that are naturally found in cannabis.  All of these elements work together to influence each others mechanisms, producing higher levels of beneficial effects, and as a result, allows us to produce more efficacious products.

The first products to launch will be a 1000mg and 2000mg Broad Spectrum Tincture, both available in an uplifting citrus flavor.  The composition of the cannabinoid profile will predominantly be CBD with several supporting cannabinoids including CBG, CBN, CBC, CBDV.   The formulation will also include the terpenes, flavonoids and waxes that are preserved in the chromatography extraction.  Certificates of Analysis will be available for each and every product and will clarify all of the plant components found in each bottle.

The successes of this year have served as motivation that we will continue to progress and innovate, so that we are able to offer the most efficacious and affordable CBD products to our customers.  This begins with the launch of our new Broad Spectrum product line. Happy New Year!
