Kara is the co-founder of Verdant, a Minnesota-based organic wellness brand specializing in small batch, broad spectrum, THC-free Hemp CBD products. Ignited by personal health challenges, Kara has spent years understanding ingredients and their effects on the human body; combined with her professional background in brand and product development for both small and large, Fortune 500 companies, Kara leads product formulation and marketing.

Inspired by their childhood on a 150 year old organic farm and driven by family health issues, Kara and her siblings were on a solutions search. Ultimately this led to discovering both Hemp CBD’s meaningful, everyday benefits and the CBD industry’s alarming (and at times dishonest) ingredients and methods. Given their relevant experience and need, Kara and her siblings founded Verdant, devoting years to investigate every ingredient and detail before proudly producing their first broad spectrum hemp product, for their family and yours.
