About Candice Marley, MH, HHP, NC
Master Herbalist and Holistic Health Practitioner Candice Marley was born and raised in Denver, Colorado. Denver has been an environment where cannabis and hemp have been used both therapeutically and recreationally. Once legalization occurred in January 2014, Denver became known as The Gold Standard in Cannabis usage and research.
Always fascinated with how herbs could help the body balance and heal, Candice became her own test subject when after a difficult and high risk pregnancy, was left with significant and debilitating pain. Unable to walk or function normally on many days due to chronic and inflammatory pain and doctors recommending oxycodone or open back spinal surgery for treatment, neither a viable option, Candice turned to CBD. The effects and benefits were immediate, however because CBD was a new therapeutic agent, cost and availability were a huge problem. Candice would find products that were filled with sugar or other additives including THC, which she did not want, and monthly costs of therapy rose to almost $800. Candice decided to take matters into her own hands.
After testing and research, Candice was able to create her own product that was 100% pure and organic, no additives including less then .3% THC, cost effective and highly effective. Candice also understood CBD could be beneficial in a wide range of health conditions, and wanted to create a product for the public that would be both beneficial and cost effective. Thus gave birth to CBDAlign!
