Aloha - we just got back from Maui, Hawaii the birthplace of POG, surfing, and Aloha to soak up some inspiration for our new POG flavored CBD GUMMIES. We drew inspiration from the tropical flavors found on the islands as well as the vibe. In Hawaii things happen a little differently -- no rush, no fuss, just good vibes and lots of talkin’ stories with your Ohana (family).
That’s the inspiration behind our new AWAKENED CBD GUMMIES -- delicious flavors and blissful effects. First up is our POG flavor with natural passion fruit, orange and guava flavors. Made with full spectrum and whole plant CBD, each juicy gummy delivers 25mg of full spectrum CBD that will feel like a vacation for your mind. We will be releasing three additional flavors before the end of the year, so stay tuned my braddas and sistas, aunty’s and unko’s.
Awakened founder Levi Strom and Kush Queen Founder Olivia Alexander.
The POG Gummies represent the first in a series of new products I’ve been developing with my good friend Olivia Alexander, founder and CEO of Kush Queen, who, like Awakened, represent the legacy California cannabis brands that have crossed over into the states recreational market as well as the National CBD market. Olivia is a true trailblazer in the space and I’m proud to be working with such an inspiring and innovative female ganjapreneur.
Our new POG CBD Gummies are 100% Vegan!
Plant Based Lifestyle
What makes this particular product so special for me personally is that they are 100% vegan -- which is difficult to accomplish in a gummy (gelatin free). Some of you that follow our Instagram may already know that I have begun my personal journey with a mostly plant-based diet since January 2021 and plan on fully transitioning to a vegan lifestyle next year. I feel that this decision is one that I had to make for the future of our planet and my own individual health and wellbeing. Awakened has always embraced plant based ingredients so the alignment of my brand ethos with my personal lifestyle choices just makes sense.
Full spectrum hemp extracts have multiple cannabinoids including small amounts of THC.
To speak to the most important ingredient, the flower, we started with premium, sun grown, pesticide free, USA hemp derived full spectrum CBD. This extract is solvent free and looks like honey and smells like a pine forest after a rain with hints of lemon peel and spice.
What is Full Spectrum CBD?
Full spectrum CBD, as compared to broad spectrum or isolate, is a whole plant ingredient that features multiple cannabinoids, including THC. Broad spectrum has no THC and isolate is up to 99.9% pure CBD with no other plant compounds. The entourage effect, as it’s called, has been experienced by many of our customers and explored by researchers like Ethan Russo and correlates to the synergistic relationship between CBD and THC and other phytocannabinoids and terpenoids. Our new POG CBD GUMMIES have at least 7 different cannabinoids in them, including delta-9-THC, and loads of natural terpenes, but with less than 0.3% THC so they are legally considered Hemp and won’t produce a psychotropic effect. Hemp and cannabis are the same plant, the distinction is purely for regulatory purposes not botany. We are so thrilled to be able to share these hemp derived CBD GUMMIES along with our Raw Hemp products with a national audience.
Inspired by Hawaii and made in California.
Made with Aloha
We are so stoked to be able to offer these new POG flavored CBD GUMMIES made from sustainably farmed USA hemp and manufactured with Love and Aloha right here in California. The spirit of family and the craft of hand made products are at the core of our beliefs and values at Awakened. We think you will be able to taste and experience the difference. Mahalo, Aloha-Aina.
