Entrepreneur Launches First Black-Owned Wholesale CBD Oil Program of its Kind

Cory Holmes, founder of Holmes Organics

Holmes Organics, founded by St. Louis-based entrepreneur Cory Holmes, is providing businesses looking to get involved in the CBD industry with direct access to premium quality and 100% THC-free CBD products. The wholesale CBD program gives businesses the opportunity to profit from a multi-billion dollar industry by becoming resellers.
Their wholesale distribution program is free to join and provides business owners with 50 percent off their current retail prices. They offer low minimum orders of $500 (equivalent to $1000 retail price) and free shipping via USPS. All orders include lab reports for each batch and free educational and quality assurance brochures to distribute to your customers. Last but not least, they deliver world-class customer service and a 30 day return policy.

How to Introduce CBD to Your Menu

There are many ways in which you can introduce CBD to your menu or inventory. The key is to ensure that you clearly state which foods, drinks, and products are CBD-infused. You can sell any of our wholesale products in your store or offer infused products. Here are a few ideas to consider:

* Infused coffee and tea
* Infused smoothies and fresh squeezed juices
* Infused cocktails
* Infused salad dressings, sauces, and baked goods
* Infused artisan products like coffee grounds, jam, butter, and more
* Standard CBD menu items, seasonal dishes, or prix-fixe menus

How to Introduce CBD to Your Retail Store

You don’t have to be a restaurant or food retailer to join their wholesale program, you just have to own a business or retail establishment. Here are a few ways their customers offer CBD beyond infusing food and drinks. Depending on where you live, you might be the only retailer in your city selling legal CBD!

* Sell CBD products in your health food store or alternative care practice—massage therapists, chiropractors, naturopaths, etc.

* Infuse your handmade bath and body products

* Create a signature pain management massage oil and offer it as an upsell

It’s not often that an emerging industry arises which is why Holmes Organics Founder Cory Holmes decided to launch his cannabis business. The Farm Bill of 2018 brought with it the legalization of hemp-derived CBD. CBD is a powerful plant extract that has been used for medicinal purposes for thousands of years, not to be confused with the plant used to produce marijuana. It’s a product with all the medicinal benefits of marijuana, and zero risk of getting high—making CBD legal in all 50 states.

“I grew up in poor neighborhoods with gun violence, having stress and anxiety as a part of my daily life,” said Holmes. “In college I suffered from a few football concussions. In 2017, I was randomly shot at while driving—and the PTSD didn’t set in until about a year later. Pharmaceuticals were the most common treatment for my symptoms, but they come with harsh side effects and the high risk of addiction. This made side-effect-free CBD the better alternative. Also, an option that delivers faster and more powerful results.”

Holmes started exploring hemp-derived CBD, but quickly found that few products worked. The industry is highly unregulated, not all products are pure, and quality can vary from one batch to the next. He saw an opportunity to do better and he jumped. His products are pure, organic and the processing is fully transparent. His line includes a full range of CBD products including a tincture, supplement, targeted pain relief salve, and dog treats—with more natural ways to heal on the way.

“Holmes Organics is so much more than my business,” said Holmes. “It’s my way to help people heal and thrive—naturally. Helping people is what I love to do which is why I am taking things one step further by offering the wholesale CBD program.”
