Our Story

There was a moment – you know when the clouds part and all of a sudden, you see something so clearly that wasn’t even on your radar before… We had one of those. And nothing has been the same since. 

To take you right into it – we became so frustrated hearing story after story revealing the complete lack of integrity and abundance of misinformation in the hemp industry.  We heard many stories of uncertainty and struggles related to significant gaps in the hemp industry that impacted consistent business growth. Insecurities about who to trust and how to legitimize work in an industry clouded by doubt and misinformation.  

Both successful in our respective fields but each longing for deeper fulfillment — seeking to use our experience in more meaningful ways — we began to have our own beer-time conversations and envisioned ourselves building a hemp business built on integrity and doing things the right way. We also shared a desire and intention to prioritize spending quality time with the people and places we love the most: our families and the outdoors. We wanted to create a business that would truly honor this work-life balance.

So we began to dive into each facet of the industry, including farmers and processors to understand hemp crops and its abundance of uses and environmental benefits.  Through these relationships and research, we were introduced to an ingredient called Hemp113 ™ which is a patented new way for processing hemp. A non-extracted, non-isolation process that maintained the integrity of the plant — turning it into a powder while preserving its active, natural state. Lab results showed that this whole plant hemp ingredient maintained most of its cannabinoids — meaning it was one of the most pure, non-extracted full-spectrum hemp ingredients in existence. This changed everything for us. It meant that Nurtrium would be carving out its newest business endeavor — our own product line. 

We started Nurtrium Health & Wellness and will be using this whole plant hemp powder as the foundational ingredient in our complete line.  The more we researched, the more excited we were to support the growth of the hemp industry, and to craft our own whole plant hemp products that promote increased harmony for the body, and for the planet.

And with that, our mission is simple: Craft and deliver natural, wholesome products that are both good for the planet and good for the people. That is what we are doing.  Beyond our excitement, we feel honored to have found a path we believe so wholeheartedly in. We look forward to sharing our excitement, our stories, and our journey with you.

“We are committed to improving human beings’ relationship to themselves, to one another, and to the environment.”

For us, the excitement of bringing our Health & Wellness products to the market amplifies at the intersection of 3 main things: Our own lived experiences of personal relief, learning about hemp’s nutritional value, and its “lock and key” relationship to the human endocannabinoid system.

Personal Relief

As self-proclaimed mixologists, our first batch was crafted in the kitchen. A couple phases of refinement later, we felt we had the perfect combination of a few, simple ingredients that struck the right balance. Pleasing both our sense of smell and the products absorption into the skin. And then the most invaluable days of research and development began — sharing it with family and friends. Their feedback and the results Ryan experienced in his own family encouraged us to keep pushing.

Our belief in the effectiveness and beauty of hemp, like many of yours, stems from personal trials seeking relief from one condition or another. For Ryan and his wife Corey, one of the biggest motivators was the relief it provided to their 10-year-old son, Liam, who has suffered with an intermittent severe red rash and clinically dry skin since infancy. Early on they took him to doctors who offered endless recommendations for over-the-counter lotions and creams marketed to fight the condition. They tried every single recommendation, nothing worked.

As an adventurous family, they sought out places to live that promote an outdoor lifestyle.  From mountain towns in the Pacific Northwest and Southwest to enjoy snowboarding, hiking and fishing. To the Pacific Ocean both in Southern California and Nicaragua to actively participate in surf and beach life. With each move — and the drastic weather and climate changes that went with it — their son would experience flare-ups. They longed to find him a solution that afforded him comfort. While allowing him to ingest the plant felt a bit too extreme – at least to Ryan’s wife — they agreed to try one of the samples mixed for the friends and family. Liam experienced relief within the week, and Ryan and Corey felt grateful to finally have a healthy option for him.

Nutrition

Research shows that hemp is one of the most nutrient rich plants available. It’s an exceptional source of protein and amino acids, achieving more than 25 percent of their calories from protein, and all 21 amino acids needed by the body — including the 9 aminos the body can’t produce on its own. Hemp also is rich in fiber, phytonutrients, vitamins and minerals. Whether ingesting it or using it topically, hemp truly is the body’s peaceful warrior — achieving harmony and balance even against the most difficult of factors.       

Human Endocannabinoid System (ECS)

Our bodies benefit as this whole plant hemp powder works directly with your ECS system. It works like this: the human endocannabinoid system or, ECS, is the primary system used to establish and maintain equilibrium in the body. When the body detects a compromised homeostasis (when internal systems are out of balance) the ECS releases endocannabinoids to interact with hundreds of receptors located throughout the body. These receptors act as “locks,” which are opened by endocannabinoids, the “keys.” Once the lock is opened the body is immediately activated to restore equilibrium.

Having learned that the hemp plant contains 113 known phytocannabinoids, many of which mimic our body’s own endocannabinoids, we understood the healing potential of the hemp plant. When introduced into our bodies, these phytocannabinoids unlock our receptors and activate the process for internal health and balance.
