Why I Started Pharmstrong

As we age, we spend way too much time letting our bodies hold us back.

It doesn’t seem fair!

When I was younger, I was committed to exercise, enjoying the outdoors, and staying active. I was a collegiate swimmer and enjoyed skiing. Then, as I approached 50, my body started falling apart. When I should have been enjoying life’s big adventures, I felt slower and weaker than ever.

In 2007, I pulled my back in a boot-camp style class. I couldn’t get out of bed or turn my head. For years I experienced sore, tight muscles and limited movement. I had to restrict my activities and watch what I lifted. Any wrong move, and I was back in bed, unable to move or turn my head.

I gave up skiing,
I couldn’t play golf,
Running would make my neck hurt for days!

Over the years, I spent thousands of dollars on special treatments and bought every muscle relief gadget I could find. But seriously, I was willing to do whatever it took to feel better.

In 2018, Ty and I started researching hemp-derived CBD and how it could improve our lifestyle. Living in Colorado gave us an advantage in trying local CBD products. It took a while to find the right products, but soon we took CBD regularly and loved the results.

We introduced CBD to many of our family members struggling with injuries. But as we continued our research, we soon realized that the CBD market was plagued by problems caused by poor quality, unreliable information, and product contamination.

The CBD industry needed a company based in science and truth!

So, with research, experience, and integrity, we jumped into the hemp CBD business on a mission to create a dependable company people could trust.

We started with hemp farming and quickly moved on to selling CBD to the public. Above all else, we are dedicated to producing safe, verified, reliable, hemp-derived CBD. That’s why in 2020, we introduced products with America’s highest seal of approval, USDA Certified Organic CBD. USDA Organic guarantees that our ingredients are pure and that our CBD is safe and natural.


We are proud to be one of only a handful of CBD companies with USDA Organic credentials!

Your stories are our stories.

We know you are missing out on important time with friends and family because of bad backs, sore knees, aching muscles, fatigue, and stress. We know you pop out of bed, and your mind says, let’s go, and your body says no. We hear you. 

At Pharmstrong, our customers share success stories with us every day. 

They are biking more, 

making a long drive on the golf course, 

hiking with family, 

and finishing marathons. 

Customers take Pharmstrong into the locker room and onto the tennis court. They use gummies before a workout and the HD2000 Gel Roller after. Ty and I use CBD every day, and our parents and siblings use it too. 

Don’t waste any more time. We are back doing what we love, and we want you to join us! 

Looking Ahead

We are excited to welcome new organizations into the CBD industry. We hope that together we can advance CBD research and increase public awareness. CBD is here to stay, and Pharmstrong is proud to be a premium, USDA Organic Certified hemp CBD leader.

Why Does USDA Certified Organic Matter?

Hemp is a super plant called a phytoremediator. That means it is used for cleaning toxins in the soil. A super plant acts as a container for removing toxins and storing the contaminants in leaves and stalks. Do you want to ingest a plant product containing toxins and pollutants? We don’t think so. When you buy USDA Organic, you know your hemp is tested and verified free of toxins, metals, molds, and pollutants. So always purchase American grown, USDA Organic CBD. It matters!
