Welcome to the podcast, where we bring you conversations with extraordinary people who have remarkable stories to tell. Today, we’re thrilled to have Craig Henderson on the show, a combat veteran and founder of Extract Labs.
Craig’s journey began with his service in Iraq, where he witnessed the medicinal benefits of cannabis and CBD among his fellow veterans. After returning home, he developed a keen interest in the medicinal applications of these compounds and began to experiment with making his own CBD products. From a dusty corner of his garage, Extract Labs was born.
Since then, Craig has built Extract Labs into a leading manufacturer of cannabinoid products, dedicated to improving the quality of life for others through researching, developing, and manufacturing the highest quality products at an affordable price. But what sets Extract Labs apart is their commitment to service and community.
For Craig and his team, community comes first. That’s why they offer a 50% discount program to veterans, active military, teachers, first responders, healthcare workers, those on long-term disability, and low-income individuals. It’s a testament to their belief that everyone should have access to the benefits of plant-based wellness, regardless of their financial circumstances.
But Extract Labs isn’t just about affordability. Craig and his team are pushing the boundaries of what CBD can do, exploring the potential health benefits of other minor cannabinoids, and partnering with institutions like CSU to fund research into the effects of CBD on canine glioma cells.
In this episode, Craig shares his remarkable journey with us, from his time in Iraq to the founding of Extract Labs and beyond. He talks about the challenges he faced along the way, from navigating the legal landscape of CBD to building a company that values transparency, quality, and community.
We also discuss the potential health benefits of CBD and other minor cannabinoids, including their use in managing pain, anxiety, and other conditions. Craig shares his insights into the current state of research in this field and what the future might hold.
Finally, we delve into Extract Labs’ discount program and their commitment to serving those who have served us. Craig talks about why this program is so important to him and how it reflects the values that underpin Extract Labs’ work.
This is an episode for anyone interested in the power of plant-based wellness, the potential of CBD and other minor cannabinoids, and the inspiring story of a combat veteran who is making a difference in the world through his work. So join us for this fascinating conversation with Craig Henderson of Extract Labs.
