Let’s stop wasting our tax dollars locking up young people over a plant. Instead, let’s build a safe, regulated cannabis market that will create jobs, save money, promote racial equity, and provide high-quality marijuana products for responsible adults to enjoy.
At Velobar, we don't just flap our gums on social media. We'll be hitting the streets in New Jersey this week, handing out pamphlets to drum up support for a YES vote on Public Question #1, the legalization of marijuana.
We started Velobar in 2016 as a healthy medical marijuana edible for MMJ patients in Oregon. Our reasoning at the time was - if you're seeking wellness from plant-based medicine, why not boost that natural medicine with natural plant-based superfoods?
Nowadays, we could all use a little plant-based medicine. And we'd all prefer to get that medicine from healthy plant-based ingredients, grown in a sustainable way. That's what Velobar is all about - delivering the wellness of CBD, combined with the robust physical sustenance of protein-rich superfoods.
When my good friend Manny Chevrolet invited me to be a guest on his long-running Troubled Men podcast, it seemed like a great opportunity to tell the whole freewheeling Velobar story from start to finish.
So grab a cocktail, eat an edible, or do whatever else floats your boat, and check out Troubled Men Episode #111 Brant Reiter Cannabis Pioneer OUT FROM THE WILDERNESS.
Velobar is my own way to carry on my mom's legacy, to try and make the world even just a little bit better. One of the things putting a new product out into the world lets you do is get up on a soapbox and try to get people's attention. So for what it's worth, the soapbox I'd like to get up on today is the #fightfor15 movement. If you haven't done so already, please consider going to their website and signing a petition to protect workers' rights.
And of course...we wouldn't be Velobar if we didn't put our money where our mouth is! To show our support for workers who truly are essential, we've been running a 50% OFF promotion for health workers, food workers, and workers in the CBD and medical marijuana industries. If you're a worker in one of these essential industries, you deserve a break! Relax and take 50% off your order of any Velobar product with the discount code CBDISESSENTIAL50.
Yes #veganfam, Velobars are Vegan. 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 a natural sense of calm and well-being through cannabinoids and healthy vegan superfoods, we are practicing “right action” in our own small way. We'd like to send a warm shout-out to our newest retail partner, Billion Vegans. Billion Vegans is an online superstore where you can find an immense variety of carefully curated products - reviewed, certified and recommended by a staff of dedicated vegan practitioners.
In times like these, with so many people suffering from the stress and anxiety of trying to keep their heads above water financially while sheltering in place separated from friends, family and loved ones, we believe the CBD industry is essential. To all the frontline workers out there putting their own safety at risk to keep us well-nourished and healthy, we want to express our deepest thanks and appreciation for the essential work you do every day. To show our appreciation, if you're a frontline worker who could use some healthy CBD to get through your day, or a worker in the CBD or medical marijuana industry, email us for a 50% OFF discount on all VELOBAR products.
When I decided to start Velobar, there was never any question that all our food ingredients were going to be organic. If we were going to be delivering the wellness of plant medicine, you can bet we were going to do it in a healthy way. And when I say “healthy,” I don’t just mean healthy for our bodies. I also mean “healthy” for our planet - specifically, the natural ecosystems that keep us all alive, and that we as stewards of Mother Earth are duty-bound to nurture and protect for future generations.
