When Will Kleidon, the CEO and Founder of Ojai Energetics, first started his California-based CBD company, he was on the hunt for a CBD oil made without chemicals or unnecessary ingredients.
“I was working on a senior class project based on the science of essential oils and terpenes. Ultimately, I wanted a CBD product that was clean and contained zero synthetic fillers and heavy metals. I was unable to find one, so I created my own,” explains Kleidon. “Today, the possibilities are endless, as we have secured intellectual properties and patents to advance our technology in hemp.”
Inspired by innovation and fueled by design, Will formed Ojai Energetics in 2014 and reflected on how the marketplace has changed since the Farm Bill was passed.
“When we first started, we were in this untouched landscape six years ago. It’s amazing to look back and see how much we have learned as we continue to combine innovation and technology and drive the growth of our business. Since then, Ojai has become the first cannabinoid company to patent and create a water-soluble product and now holds multiple issued patents worldwide for both process and final composition for encapsulation of cannabinoids.”
Named after the spa-resort town of its home base in Ojai, California, Ojai Energetics is committed to serving the hemp industry as a catalyst for good. The company works with organic hemp farmers and creates an organic line of full-spectrum hemp elixir, a CBD coconut oil, and CBD sports gel.
Kleidon and his staff have a triple bottom line policy of putting people and the planet first, with the intent of being fiscally responsible while supporting regenerative farming practices and wind energy. The company has a financial assistance program that guarantees access to its products to anyone who needs them.
Additionally, Ojai Energetics was the first Public Benefit Corporation in the industry, which means the company serves a larger purpose while also engaging in profit-generating activities.
Kleidon adds, “We bring ancient healing products to new life using modern innovations at an affordable level, never compromising the quality of our water-soluble CBD oil. We’re here to provide CBD users with a dependable bridge to optimal living, promoting everyday health and healing.”
Unlike other CBD oils, Ojai Energetics full-spectrum organic CBD oil provides benefits in less than 30-seconds versus 30-minutes.
Kleidon explains how Ojai cracked the code, “We created a full-spectrum hemp oil that enters the body more quickly. The difference comes from our water-soluble CBD that utilizes patented technology. Thanks to its significantly higher bioavailability, customers will get more CBD in each drop than they will with other products.”
Ojai claims its CBD oil is absorbed the second it makes contact in the body. “All of our products are 3rd party batch tested, are sourced with the greatest care, and actually work. You can feel good knowing you didn’t just give your body or loved ones the best, but also helped others and the planet as well,” said Kleidon.
Through Kleidon’s hometown connections in Silicon Valley, Ojai Energetics is ready to ride the surge of hemp innovation that is sweeping the nation. From hiring Ph.D’s from Stanford and Harvard in molecular engineering to working with the United States Department of Energy, Kleidon says Ojai is gearing up to become a leader in hemp technology and design.
“We focused on building the most robust IP portfolio in the space in our ‘skunkworks’ first, working with the leading IP group Wilson Sonsini over the past 7 years, and are now ready to accelerate more of our technology to market. You will see our hemp supercapicitors used in electric jets and for sustainable renewable energy sources, to customized cannabinoid therapeutics, all the way to cannabinoids used for space travel,” said Kleidon. “I believe in following my vision and passion and collaborating with partners that align with our mission to serve the better good in people and our planet.”
