We offer Cutting-Edge, Organic, Full Spectrum Hemp products for a Balanced & Radiant Lifestyle!
Healios is a family-owned business operated by Kristen & Michael Norton, created for you and your family. We were driven to build a fully transparent company for wellness-minded people to discover and enjoy hemp products of the highest available quality, after being inspired by our own firsthand experiences with full spectrum hemp.
One of our most important goals is to create a better environment for all of us, both inside and out, so we developed the Healios Sunflower Project. With every Healios purchase, we give away one packet of sunflower seeds. Why sunflowers? Researchers discovered that sunflowers, like hemp, have the power to clean soil and oxygenate air through a process known as phytoremediation.

CBD is short for cannabidiol, which is a chemical compound found in the hemp plant. CBD is just one of over 100 cannabinoids, which are characterized by their ability to affect the body’s Endocannabinoid System.
Wait, What’s the Endocannabinoid System?
Let’s start with what we do know….You remember the systems of the body from biology class: Immune, Nervous, Digestive to name a few.. Well, Surprise! We have a 12th system of the body that was discovered in 1990-the Endocannabinoid System (or ECS). The ECS regulates all of the other systems and creates the balance or homeostasis that’s needed for optimal health and wellness. Although this is one of the most important discoveries in modern times, the United States hasn’t recognized it because they made Hemp illegal in the 1930’s. Since the plant was illegal it was nearly impossible for research studies to be done.
After the discovery in 1990, it didn’t take long for the U.S. government to decide that there was real value in the discovery of this system, so in 2003, it patented cannabidiol (and all other cannabinoids) as neuroprotectants and antioxidants, meaning that they protect against nerve injury, and defend against harmful molecules known as free radicals. The National Institute of Health has continued studying cannabinoids, and their findings are all favorable for a multitude of usages. In fact, a nonprofit called Project CBD examined the wealth of peer-reviewed scientific research, and concluded that cannabis oil may be therapeutic for individuals with conditions such as:
- sleep disorders
- and many others!
So really, What’s Old is New Again, because hemp has been used for everything from food to clothing to medicine since ancient times. Fun fact: the first recorded use of cannabis as medicine was made by Chinese Emperor Shen Neng in 2737 BCE.
And even though hemp and marijuana come from the same flowering plant (a.k.a. cannabis), our CBD is organically grown to be free of additives and preservatives, and completely non-psychoactive. Here at Healios, we are passionate about helping people lead happier, healthier lives, and we firmly believe that our organic CBD products can do just that.
