Present Life Lands Deal for CBD Line Healist

After acquiring the Portland-based company Social CBD, the vertically integrated Kadenwood is expanding its brand portfolio with the Healist CBD line incubated by Present Life.

WHO: Founded in 2020, Healist makes topical and ingestible CBD wellness products designed to aid with stress, sleep, pain relief and immune support. The line is sold online and in bulk retail channels and is available in the US, UK and Brazil.

In 2019, Kadenwood launched its first branded products under Level Select in the personal care sector. And in late 2020, Kadenwood launched the Purity Preferred Pet business and Purity Organic Hot Teas to expand its portfolio of CBD brands.
