Happy 4/20, Austin!
As more and more people turn to CBD for its relaxing benefits, Austin-based Earlybird CBD is helping consumers find the highest-quality CBD products to fit their specific needs.
Earlybird CBD was founded in 2018 when co-founders Mark Hullings and Justin Adair recognized the recreational potential of hemp-infused products.
After selling other CBD brand’s products for nearly two years on their website, the entrepreneurs combined research and customer feedback to create their own line, including recreational, full-spectrum CBD hemp gummies and tinctures.
“What we realized was that the products with the greatest demand and most effective results, as relayed by our customers, were those with the full-spectrum oil that contain the full range of cannabinoids naturally occurring in the hemp plant,” says co-founder Mark Hullings. “This, of course, includes THC.”
Each consumer has their own desires with their usage of CBD, whether that’s chilling out as they prepare for bed or enjoying a light buzz before an activity.
“We formulated our product to have enough THC and other cannabinoids to produce a mild euphoria for most consumers,” explains Hullings. “It’s perfect whether you’re gearing up for a fun hike outdoors or unwinding after a long day.”
Their gummies have a 5:1 CBD to THC ratio, and the tinctures range from 25mg/ml to 100mg/ml. Earlybird CBD’s products are also legal in all 50 states.
“Many of our customers compare the euphoric feeling of a gummy to a couple glasses of wine…but without a hangover and with the added benefits of CBD,” says Hullings.
To celebrate this April 20th, indulge in Earlybird CBD’s Summer Paloma or order a 4/20 picnic featuring Earlybird CBD gummies, food from Spread and Co., cider from Fairweather Cider and a succulent from Desk Plants.
