Having owners that are involved in a business is vital to its success - Cloud 9 Cafe founders Gerod Latham and Juwan Johnson are not only there for every step of the process, but they also love what they do and how it helps others. CBD helped them through their rugby days and continues to help them on a day-to-day basis as they deal with aches from past injuries and stresses from daily life. Thanks to their passion for CBD and education many others are now aware of the positive benefits it has.
Gerod Latham, Co-Founder and Head of Production, says "We infuse a wide range of products with 99.9% pure CBD isolate to help people integrate CBD into their lives as seamlessly as possible. Unfortunately, not all CBD products are reliable so Cloud 9 Cafe’s mission is to produce the best quality products on the market and give CBD a good name so our customers can have a brand they trust. All of Cloud 9 Cafes products are third party lab tested, each label will have a scannable QR code for customers to see the test results for themselves right then and there."
Quality is of the utmost importance when it comes to Cloud 9 Cafe, they want to ensure everyone who tries their product receives the quality they come to expect from everything they do. Gerod continues with "Cloud 9 Cafes second main priority is to educate people on the benefits of CBD and dispute some of the misunderstandings about it. CBD was used for medicine long throughout history it is only up until recently that it was made illegal and demonized. People are doing themselves a disservice not having CBD in their lives so we try to spread the positive news about CBD." He is passionate about CBD and all of its benefits because he has seen it works wonders in his life; from helping him with migraines to giving him alertness in the morning, it has done that and much more.
Juwan Johnson, CEO and Co-Founder, chimes in "All of Cloud 9 Cafes products as of now have been made with 99.9% pure CBD Isolate. The Isolate is baked or mixed into these products to give people the sensation of relaxation and with rest with ease. The isolate is weighed out on the scale to get the bulk weight of the CBD Isolate getting put into the product. From there a recipe of the specific product being made will mix in isolate as some point in its stage of production."
He is very methodical in the process coming from an engineering background, but that does not cloud his artistic side. "A majority of the artwork and marketing come from Lindsey Michaud via Procreate, an iPad software that works in graphic design. Lindsey and I work together to create a handful of banners, packaging, and social media posts for our viewers. We have the packaging being clouds, mountains and trees because of where we are; Corvallis Oregon is an unseen beauty if you go for a hike or just take a peak at Mary’s Peak. The template used for the packaging brings the adventure and exploration nostalgia to the CBD community which is a group of people trying to relax, heal or recover from a hard day of work or long years of strenuous labor."
These partners are on a mission to help others live better lives by educating them about the benefits of CBD.
"The mission of Cloud 9 Cafe LLC is to elevate, inspire, and educate the people of today to build the leaders of tomorrow. Eliminating stress, anxiety and pain in the progress of getting people active and exploring the aspirations they have always dreamed."
