History of JPotter Health
JPotter Health was founded by Jackie Potter, a Healer Certified CBD Coach (read more about Jackie Potter's credentials). With a history in science, Jackie had been closely following the benefits of cannabidiols since a 2012 study published in Pharmaceuticals. She was extremely interested in the potential benefits in the areas of anxiety, sleep, PTSD and pain management without the nasty side-effects of prescription drugs. At a professional networking event Ms. Potter met-up with a group of women who were selling CBD oil products - which clearly had Jackie's attention. After "signing-up" as a product distributor to initially try the products for herself, her children and her parents she quickly found many of her friends were also very interested in CBD oil for their various needs - muscle recovery, sleeplessness and arthritic pain. However, Jackie couldn't help but wonder - was this just the placebo effect? With a science background Jackie wanted more evidence that cannabinoids were to credit for the benefits experienced by her friends, family and herself.
JPotter Health: A Business Based on CBD Expertise
Jackie spent months accumulating hundreds of hours of education from The Medical Cannabis Institute, TMCIGlobal, education for healthcare professionals who want to learn about medical cannabis and its potential clinical application as well as getting her Healer Certified designation from renowned cannabis clinician, Dr. Dustin Sulak.
While learning more about CBD, other cannabinoids and the endocannabinoid system, Jackie began to question the CBD products she was using and distributing - requesting 3rd-party lab reports and more details about where and how this cannabis was grown as well as the extraction method. After getting the run-around for months Jackie was faced with the harsh reality that this company was selling CBD more like a multi-level marketing cosmetic, jewelry, candles or kitchen gadgets rather than a health product. She determined the company she was representing did not value the science behind the benefits of CBD oil. This company was more interested in capitalizing on the CBD-hype and selling anything with a CBD label to generate a profit and attractive commissions in a multi-level marketing distribution model. Jackie severed her relationship as a distributor and took her passion for CBD and her new CBD business in a different direction.
CBD Expertise With No CBD to Sell
Jackie never wanted to "sell" CBD - she had always wanted to help people "buy" CBD - unbeholden to one company or line. After ending her distributorship relationship with the MLM company she decided to take her credentials and expertise and make them into a business of helping people find the right CBD, a healthy CBD, that she felt confident was transparent in their CBD contents so that she could help people choose which product, and its concentrations of other cannabinoids, terpenes, carrier oils and other components would best fit the individual and their needs. Rather than just distribute one line of products for one company, Jackie began working on CBD Coaching Packages she could offer, delivering her help, as a CBD expert, to help find the right CBD product for the customer - full-spectrum CBD, broad-spectrum CBD, CBD isolate, CBD edible, gummies, tincture, topical or flower for baking, smoking or vaping - these are all aspects of CBD consumption to consider - unique to each individual and their endocannabinoid system.
Professionally Vetting CBD Oil Manufacturers: Tinctures, Topicals, Edibles
Jackie had lined up friends, family and others interested in trying CBD and now she had to find a product that had science behind it. She began her quest to find US-based companies, organically-growing hemp, in a controlled environment with an extraction method they can stand behind that have independent 3rd party lab reports for all their products. Fast forward a few years and JPotter Health has vetted several different companies from Washington and Utah to Colorado and continues to work with companies gaining credibility as healthy growers with transparent products in the CBD oil industry. Long gone are the days of taking a CBD oil without knowing exactly what's in it.
