What Illumenates You?


 

“We are the first health bar in this Planetary Biosphere to be cross-pollinated and inspired by ancient to modern modalities of healing .. consciously extracting nutrients from nature and distilling them into an abundance of nectarous offerings.”

 

As we continue to evolve as a natural lifestyle brand, our intentional growth consistently aligns with our mission. Cross pollination reappears throughout our business model, because shifting the paradigm to a healthier mind, body and planet is a communal effort. Like nature, cross pollination promotes diversity. Food as medicine is not a one size fits all approach: different healing modalities are required at different times and for different people. Our latest cross pollination is the intersection of liquid life force with medicinal hemp juice and functional foods: Lumen.

To give you a little back story, Lumen transpired from a working relationship between Jacob Freepons and our founder, Gia. These two guided the renovations of our Healdsburg location. In the dust filled, deliriously long work days, Jacob vocalized his desire to share the healing qualities of hemp juice. Conversations led to formulating cold-pressed juices that included hemp. This new form of food as medicine deeply resonated with Gia. Jacob and Gia presented their formulations at New York’s Food Tech Connect. The juice was a hit! Some months afterward, the team grew in size to include co-founders Kris Taylor and Yasir Hashim, agricultural partner Chris Jagger, and a talented group of advisors. Research and development shifted the product from full-sized juices to functional shots. Everything was beginning to fall into place, with the exception of the right name. Gia suggested Lumen, with the word's connection to beekeeping and The Nectary. Lumen officially launched in early 2018.


Lumen/ˈlo͞omən/ noun

"A point where the light emerges from the earth and extends

out to the heavens. It is where a virgin queen bee, as she mates

with the drones, comes into understanding of her role and

delivers her message to the heavens."

(Song of Increase by Jacqueline Freeman)

Over the years, food as medicine has presented itself in different modalities, from raw, vegan food to healing bone broth and now, medicinal hemp juice. Lumen truly delivers a farm to bottle regeneratively-grown hemp elixir. The functional ingredients offer relaxation, immune support and anti-inflammatory effects. You’ll be surprised at the myriad of benefits from a handful of plant ingredients.

Restore Elixir


Hemp juice

Hemp juice is derived from cold-pressing the upper parts and leaves of the Cannabis sativa plant. This juice is drug-free and non-psychoactive. Hemp juice brings out the adaptogenic properties of the plant. Hemp is an ancient superfood that's been used in multiple civilizations for millennia to help the body find homeostasis. Our body constantly wants to maintain this state of balance. Proving balance and homeostasis involves physiological processes, such as appetite, pain sensation and mood. Hemp juice provides full spectrum nutrition, including vitamins, minerals, enzymes, amino acids and antioxidants. Put simply, hemp can be used to obtain the medical and nutritional benefits of the cannabis plant without the marijuana "high".
