Mender was founded in 2017 in San Luis Obispo, California, by April Cole Worely, out of a belief in the power of CBD. Passionate about naturally-made products paired with hours of poring over academic studies and personal healing journey from CBD, April, a creative agency veteran with a Master's Degree in Public Policy, continues to lead the company. The Mender brand was brought to life by designer Ariel Rosso and current Mender Creative Director Jesse Mireles (pictured above right in Lake Tahoe)—whose talents range from award-winning wine brands to international agency work. 

Mender's products are developed under the guidance of natural bodycare formulators using only fresh, clean ingredients. Each thoughtfully contains rich moisturizing oils, organic botanicals, plant-based ingredients, and non-GMO, single-source organic hemp CBD organically grown by the Tricolla Farms family farm. Our products are clean, potent, tested, and packaged in-house to ensure the highest level of safety and freshness.
