Our Founder’s Fully Activated CBD Story

Welcome to Fully Activated!
We’re so glad you’re here and that you’ve chosen to trust us with your various CBD needs!  We want to share our personal story of our experience with CBD, how Fully Activated came to be, and why we believe our products are unmatched.
Our founder, Nick, has experienced chronic pain most of his life.  As he jumped from medical professional to medical professional searching for a solution to his pain, he was frequently misdiagnosed and found himself looking for something more.
After deciding to take his health into his own hands, he found CBD…
At the time, he was helping his mother with her dog rescues and noticed that several of these foster animals also had issues from skin infections to joint problems and emotional stress.  He began to take CBD for his own needs and started their foster pets on a regular regiment.  He quickly saw improvements in his own pain, as well as, the quality of life and improved conditions for their beloved furry friends. 
One of the largest issues he encountered was the consistency and quality of the CBD he found.  Motivated by his new found pain-remedy, he chose to move to Colorado to search for a solution & eventually grow his own high-quality CBD hemp plants and create his own products.
 
“I couldn’t accept how the majority of CBD companies were treating people and more importantly our pets!  I saw too many people and too many animals in situations where they needed love, genuine help and compassion… but instead we were being treated as sources of income by our doctors and vets.” – Nick, Fully Activated
 
After moving to Colorado, he realized how hard it was to truly find consistent, high-quality CBD hemp plants.  But, it didn’t take long for him to connect with his hemp-growing counterpart!  With a chemist background and a love for genetics, Nick knew this man was his chance to create something great to share with the world.  His partner offered a hemp farm approved by the state of Colorado and the magic began! 
As the farm grew, the two tested the CBD content of the plants and began crossbreeding the highest concentration plants with other high concentration plants to produce giant outdoor hemp plants with high volumes of CBD.  This genetic crossing has created the ‘proprietary blend’ of high-quality CBD that Fully Activated uses today!  While the evolution of these plants never stops, only the best strains with less than .3% THC are used.  The Colorado Department of Agriculture visits the farm regularly to test the plants, and they consistently pass with flying colors.  Typically, if the crop exceeds the <.3% THC then it is condemned and, sometimes, even burned to prevent distribution.  However, due to careful and attentive crossbreeding, the farm has never had to waste a crop! 
Once the hemp plants are mature, they are taken to processing and the products are all created within 20 miles of the farm.  The naturally grown, locally sourced hemp is used to create tinctures, salves, isolate, vape juice, dog treats, capsules, body balms, and more.  We’ve heard great feedback from happy customers and would love to give you the chance to experience a higher quality of life.  We’re happy to discuss our various products and answer any questions you may have regarding CBD and Fully Activated. 
 
Please reach out to us with specific questions or concerns.  We’d love to hear from you!

Here’s to Our Health!

With the emergence of CBD companies, social groups and a growing acceptance of cannabis comes a whole new world. We’re stoked to be a part of it for reasons that go well beyond a buzz. 
It goes without saying that the medicinal explorations of the cannabis plant in its entirety are at the top of our list for excitement! After years of perfecting techniques and securing clean and consistent materials, we’ve reached the freedom to share the benefits of this plant with our loved ones, our pets and you! We are part of a movement that is open to more natural forms of healing and care, moving away from the grips of pharmaceutical companies. We are constantly learning firsthand from research and experimentation, not only in the medical community but from our professional peers working compassionately with cannabis.
The agricultural benefits are undeniable. From crops to textiles, the cannabis plant in all of its many forms help sustain farms, create jobs and allows people access to the plant’s nutritional and medicinal properties. Like any other plant, the growing methods practiced have a lot to do with the finished product. There is a certain buyer’s confidence when you know you’re getting a product that was grown with knowledge and care. Tell us again what the argument against this giant multipurpose crop with numerous beneficial properties from seed to flower is about?
Let’s talk about how society has begun to embrace cannabis and integrate it as part of a healthy lifestyle. It seems to have reminded people to ask their own health questions, the importance of knowing their own bodies and trusting their nature. Fashion has taken a fun front seat with stylish imagery moving from campy to classy, making it professionally more approachable. More and more it’s becoming widely acceptable to discuss your recreational cannabis use and demand more attention to it medically. 
In the blink of an eye, hemp has the ability to become the new cotton, cannabis our medicine of choice and this archaic prohibition over with. Put down your champagne flutes and raise your High Society Collection clips – here’s to our health!

who we are

 Heres a little about who we are and why sharing plant medicine knowledge is so important to us. Big thanks to all who take a few minutes to read our little blog, hopefully you’ll take something away from it!
We’ll start with who we are:
After years of misdiagnoses and being over prescribed pharmaceuticals for phantom conditions, Nick decided to take control of his own health. Combining a gluten free diet with little to no processed sugars, replacing pharmaceuticals with plant medicine and regular physical activity, Nick was able to redirect his health and regain his quality of life.
With an engineering background it only made sense that he would start production of his own products to ensure quality, purity and cleanliness for his family, friends and himself. Shortly after Fully Activated began, Courtney, a long time friend from a similar industry joined Nick in Colorado to lend her skills and knowledge to the cause and the company. It didn’t take long before both Nick and Courtney realized they had found a true calling, not only in life, also in love.
 Now, we are a husband and wife team that together have almost 30 years experience in the marijuana industry ranging from cultivation to genetic development. We’ve merged our ideas of plant medicine and a preventative lifestyle to offer products that can be utilized daily by anyone in need, anywhere.
