The CBD market is often described as "The Wild West," and consumers have been inundated with start-ups attempting to break into it. But one grin-worthy company, Smilyn, combines scientific data with health-based knowledge to deliver an expansive CBD collection that celebrates and supports an active, new-age lifestyle.

Smilyn offers a portfolio of hemp-derived products that are trustworthy, tasty, and available as tinctures, gummies, softgels, and topicals to satisfy each customer's personal preference.

"We exist to revolutionize. We exist to not only help individuals look and feel incredible — but smile throughout the journey of life," says Smilyn co-founder and CEO Brett Weiss. "The mission is simple. Everyone deserves access to affordable, premium quality CBD products that leave you smiling."

Since childhood, Weiss has embraced an entrepreneurial spirit, first working at his family's car wash, then flourishing in the marketing and tech arenas as well as the lifestyle space. Weiss's intersection of big-picture strategies and timeless people skills has helped build Smilyn into one of the leading health and wellness brands of hemp-derived products.

A commitment to rigorous lab-testing, brand transparency and reputation, first-rate consumer experiences, fast shipping and incredible discounts contribute to a lifestyle that promotes longevity for every person (and every pet). Particular to the issues facing the LGBTQ community, Smilyn can be part of a pro-active shift toward conscious living that celebrates our diversity.

A recent report by the Kaiser Family Foundation revealed alarming disparities facing the LGBTQ community amid coronavirus. Seventy-four percent of LGBTQ people surveyed said worry and stress from the pandemic had negatively impacted their mental health. But as history reveals, queer people are resilient to the core. Fortunately, hemp-derived products can be part of an integrated wellness lifestyle that attributes to feeling our best and showing up in the world as our authentic selves.

Why Smilyn Stands Apart

CBD is one of the many compounds found in the cannabinoids found in marijuana and hemp — but not to fear! All of Smilyn's products are free of psychoactive THC. So, what's left? All of the good stuff.

Smilyn begins by partnering with Colorado farmers to grow 100% organic hemp, which is then processed and purified to yield a broad-spectrum hemp oil that contains an astonishing 112 cannabinoids. That's right — CBD is just one of more than beneficial 100 cannabinoids, along with naturally occurring terpenes and flavonoids. The hemp oil is then distilled and refined using an exclusive technology that removes any impurities.

Every batch is tested for quality and potency, but one final step sets Smilyn apart from its competitors: Proprietary nano emulsion technology. This critical production step yields better absorption, which means, according to Smilyn, "less product to achieve the same level of benefit as the products sold by most competitors."

Smilyn also offers a specific line of Delta 8 CBD products. D8, one of the 100+ cannabinoids, has been studied for its powerhouse properties, including anti-anxiety, anti-nausea, appetite stimulant, mood and memory enhancer, and sleep aid. Now that's something to smile about.

5 Reasons to Try CBD

Stress and Anxiety Relief — The National Center for Biotechnology Information reports that "evidence indicates CBD has considerable potential as a treatment for multiple anxiety disorders."

Sleep — A CBD sleep aid may help control cortisol levels, which significantly impact non-REM sleep cycles. Premium hemp soft gels with melatonin may support relaxation and restful, healthy sleep.

Pain Relief — Whether you try a roll-on for muscle fatigue or a tincture for arthritis for other aches and pains, some evidence suggests that CBD can be used for chronic pain.

Skincare — Whether you're seeking a healthy glow or calming irritated skin, Smilyn's beautifully formulated products will leave you fresh-faced for spring.

Pet Health— All the reasons why we love CBD can also be applied to our most beloved four-legged friends. Smilyn's appropriately formulated CBD pet products are pawsitively purrfect!
