Can Vegans eat Velobar CBD Protein Bars?

Yes #veganfam, Velobars are Vegan - and here’s why.

Of all the influences that went into the development of our great-tasting CBD protein bar, the vegan strand was particularly important. As a child of the Back to the Land movement of the 1970s, and as a practicing Buddhist for several decades, the vegan ideology has always resonated deeply with me.

Velobar influences - Pythagoras and Lao Tzu

The following passage taken from the Vegan Society’s website gives a clear picture of of what the movement is all about:

[Veganism is] a philosophy and way of living which seeks to exclude—as far as is possible and practicable—all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing or any other purpose; and by extension, promotes the development and use of animal-free alternatives for the benefit of humans, animals and the environment. In dietary terms it denotes the practice of dispensing with all products derived wholly or partly from animals.

At Velobar, we try to live lovingly on the planet. Our plant-based CBD snack bar is a natural extension of that basic outlook. By delivering natural cannabinoids through healthy vegan superfoods, we are practicing “right action” in our own small way.

But of course, we can’t do it alone. Of the many fellow travelers who have helped us on our journey, we’d like to take this opportunity to send a warm shout-out to our friends at Vegan Strong, who have proved by their marvelous physiques that "Plants have all the protein you need"!
