Pocono Organics, one of the largest regenerative organic farms in North America, has launched one of the first regenerative organic grown full-spectrum hemp product lines and the only to carry the globally recognized Rodale Institute logo on its products and packaging.
Pocono Organics’ wellness product line includes artisanal, small-batch items including tinctures, creams, salve sticks, lip balms, massage oil, popular bath bombs as well as a pet-friendly organic tincture. These products are formulated in their own lab and are available online and carried in more than 30 retail outlets, spas, and doctors’ offices across multiple states.
Pocono Organics, located atop the Pocono Mountains, uses the power of USDA certified organic full-spectrum hemp extract to deliver a broader range of wellness-promoting cannabinoids - creating the entourage effect that unlocks numerous potential health benefits through multiple cannabinoids versus relying solely on CBD.
“I personally know the power of plant-based supplements,” said Ashley Walsh, Founder and President of Pocono Organics. “I was diagnosed with gastroparesis in my late ‘20s. It is a very painful and daily condition where my stomach is paralyzed and I am unable digest food normally. My doctors wanted to cut out parts of my stomach, insert feeding tubes, and put me on a regiment of pills. I took a different path including an organic diet as well as CBD-rich supplements, which became vital to how I managed my condition and are part of my daily wellness routine.”
Power of Nanoparticle Technology
Nanoparticle technology is used in the pharmaceutical and nutraceutical industries as a way to make products instantly bioavailable to the body and to ensure precise dosing without diminished impact through first-pass metabolism – when ingested products first go through the stomach before going to work one to two hours later.
“Nanoparticle technology is a game-changer for people seeking the immediate benefits of full-spectrum hemp extract,” Walsh added. “Instant bioavailability is vital for people who want to get an accurate dose they expect. The water-soluble, nanoparticle formulation has been done for select products including one of our tinctures and all of our bath bombs. It’s not seen often in this industry because it’s hard to do and is a big investment, but the value is worth it. And, we’ve kept the price in range with traditionally formulated products. We’ll be announcing a full line of nano-particle products soon made with organic ingredients.”
Power of Trust
“We are focused on becoming vertically integrated which is why we have invested in our in-house formulation and packaging because it’s hard to know who to trust when it comes to high quality organic CBD products,” Walsh continued. “Our mission comes from my personal healthy journey and I want to ensure our products are accessible for all – including our pets - which make this very personal for me.”
According to a study done by the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, nearly 70% of CBD products are mislabeled. This troubling statistic is why Pocono Organics is transparent in how and where its products are grown so that consumers can make an informed decision about products they can always trust.
“Every hemp plant grown at Pocono Organics has been in our hands from hand-seeding to hand-harvesting,” said Walsh. “We hang dry our plants so that they retain higher levels of cannabinoids and terpenes – which makes a better-quality product. Each of our products include organic ingredients that you can pronounce!”
Every Pocono Organics’ product has a QR code that allows consumers to review the Certificate of Analysis (COA) from an independent, third-party research lab ensuring there are no pesticides or heavy metals in any of the products.
"I have been using Pocono Organics creams, both scented and unscented, on my clients in our spa and believe these to be top-quality products that actually work,” said Yvette Bertsch, Spa Director at the historic Congress Hall Resort in Cape May, NJ. “I was impressed by Ashley and how her products evolved from a deep desire and need for health, healing, and a better quality of daily living. Ashley’s products far surpassed me and my clients’ expectations for results, which is why I trust and use Pocono Organics.”
“Kitchen Toke's foundation is rooted in the belief that cannabis is food and food is medicine,” said Joline Rivera, founder of Kitchen Toke. “Our collaboration with Pocono Organics very much fit that definition. It starts with their care in the regenerative farming practices through to the final products. Pocono Organics is a win/win for people and our environment, especially the honeybees!”\
The Pocono Organics line up can be found at more than 30 retail locations, including Kimberton Whole Foods, Kalahari Resorts and Conventions, Riverwards Produce Market, Local Roots NYC, Kitchen Toke online store.
“I have been recommending CBD to my patients for several years,” said Dr.Peter Hunt, a practicing chiropractor in Stroudsburg, Pa. “The primary reason is its ability to allow the body to better respond to stress and reduce inflammation. The flavonoids, polyphenols, cannabinoids, and terpenes all act together to reduce inflammation and protect the central and peripheral nervous systems. I am finding that the nanotechnology is very effective for many of my patients. Pocono Organics’ partnership with Rodale Institute ensures the highest level of organic farming that you can find, thus ensuring the highest quality products that are available.”
Pocono Organics is also the only company in the world to carry the renowned Rodale Institute logo on its products and packaging as a sign to consumers of the high standards and responsible farming practices used to make these items.
Rodale Institute, recognized as the global leaders in regenerative organic science and research, is a strategic partner of Pocono Organics to bring the power of soil-based farming to larger audiences. Regenerative organic agricultural practices include low-till methods and zero use of chemicals and pesticides. This farming approach produces some of the cleanest and nutrient-dense crops grown on earth – making them better for consumers – while also strengthening and healing the soil in which they are grown – which is better for our planet.
