Our Story

The Whole Plant™ journey started in about 2016 with Alex and his belief in whole-plant medicine. Alex had been diagnosed with a critical case of Crohn’s Disease at the age of 21. His family had seen first-hand how he had to struggle with very few answers from doctors. When traditional medicines weren’t working, Alex had no choice but to research alternatives.

In 2018, Alex graduated from the Cleveland School of Cannabis as a part of their inaugural class with a focus on Medical Cannabis Applications. He then went to California to gain more industry knowledge and partnered with a Cannabis Collective that solely focused on whole-plant medicine and extraction.

Seeing how effective it had been for himself and others, Alex brought the concept of whole-plant medicine to the CBD industry and created our brand Whole Plant™. Since then, Alex has been in remission without the use of any pharmaceutical medicines! Alex and our team strive to make an impact in the industry every day to help others in need by providing HIGH-QUALITY products for an AFFORDABLE price.

Extraction

The Whole Plant™ product line is truly one of a kind in the industry. Utilizing more than just CBD, our product line is based around an all-natural whole-plant extraction. This extraction method allows us to extract high amounts of CBD, many important minor cannabinoids, and the essential terpenes in the plant.

Many of the other cannabinoids like CBG, CBC, CBN, other cannabinoids, and terpenes can be lost in other extraction methods like C02. In our Whole Plant™ extract, we have 8-9 total cannabinoids and the original plant terpenes that are essential for the entourage effect. All of our hemp is organically grown, extracted, and processed in Ohio.

Goal Specific Products

Since we can preserve many cannabinoids and terpenes in our extract, we grow specific strains (varieties) of hemp to create cannabinoid and terpene profiles for our goal specific products. We believe in growing particular genetics so we can create a consistent product every time.

Our goal-specific products are made up of our Morning Clarity, Daily Bliss, Nightly Wellness blends so our consumers can base which product they need for their wellness goals! We grow hemp CBD Sativa, Hybrid, and Indica strains for each of our goal specific blends. Many products in the market just have one CBD oil for everything while we follow the success of the cannabis industry by having different strains (varieties) for different wellness goals.
