The Thought Behind Our Founder’s Eyes

TerpNutrition is a company I wanted to build with a foundation on transparency, quality, friendliness, and a positive mindset.

I started using CBD consistently about 2 years ago because I read an article about how it has been helping people with sleep. I grew up having issues falling asleep on time and there would be multiple nights that I would stay up until the sun came back up. Sometimes during those nights, I was able to do a lot of research on different topics of interest. One of those topics that came up frequently was cannabis and the benefits of cannabinoids. There are over 100 different cannabinoids. Cannabinoids are the compounds that make up the hemp plant, which is where TerpNutrition extracts all of our CBD for our products. A few examples of cannabinoids found in our tincture are CBD, CBDa, CBG, THC, and CBC. Recently, the 2018 Farm Bill was passed, making the sale of hemp-derived CBD legal in all 50 states. Industrial hemp HAS to yield a 0.3% THC or less in order to be legal. All of our products are well under that threshold. Now before you stop reading because of “THC…” Cannabinoids were a big misunderstanding that was unfortunately drilled into society’s head because of “the war on drugs.” Evidence shows that hemp and marijuana (both fall under the “Cannabis Sativa” family) were banned in the past to avoid impacting the paper/ lumber industry, which a lot of politicians were getting paid by at the time. There are countless studies that show the full plant healing, the “entourage effect,” is more beneficial than isolating a compound. This is why we have trace amounts of THC, which naturally is present in hemp when we do a full spectrum extraction. The entourage effect is when CBD works synergistically with its other cannabinoids for maximum results. This small amount of THC will NOT get you high, so don’t worry. We focus our products on CBD because of the therapeutic effects it can have on some ones everyday life. Below are just a few of the benefits that CBD can provide.
  • Inflammation
  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Sleep
  • Joint pain
  • Back pain
I grew up playing sports and to this day I continue to work out almost every day. I use CBD on a daily basis, specifically for inflammation that an active adult like myself deals with from training. I also use it proactively to help with anxiety that comes with the stress of moving and starting a business. I try to avoid using pharmaceuticals. I have witnessed not just myself but also Megan, my girlfriend, as well as hundreds of other individuals, benefit from cannabinoids, specifically CBD! This is what started my journey on creating TerpNutrition. I did countless trials and errors of other products that weren’t designed for active adults and weren’t utilizing the combination of cannabinoids and terpenes. This is a newer market and a lot of people are in it for the wrong reason. I saw some companies not understanding where CBD even comes from, and a few that were in it just for the money and didn’t focus on the QUALITY and SAFETY of their product. Everything started to click. All those nights I stayed up researching what I was naturally curious about became very useful! I wanted to gather everything I learned and focus myself on learning as much as possible of the human body and how it interacts with CBD. I wanted to provide a quality product that is safe for not only me but for my loved ones as well. Everyone says “be patient, you will find your calling…” TerpNutrition is my passion and providing the highest quality CBD products is my calling. Thank you for your time, and your attention <3 Ben Pasquel Founder of TerpNutrition
