Who We Are

“The garden of the world has no limits, except in your mind.” -Rumi


In April of 2016, Vanessa and Chris met a visionary who wanted to infuse Cannabidiol (CBD) oil into all-natural skincare products. Together the three of them connected on one belief and that was that health and wellness is a basic human right. Chris and Elvis learned that they both lived through the passing of their young mothers and agreed that the health problems that preceded were largely influenced by the toxic chemicals found in everyday products. 

Vanessa Marquez knew further research and due diligence was required to move forward with the rather innovative idea. It was in a research paper that she discovered why CBD oil was so extraordinary and relevant to skincare. The study stated that compounds found in the Hemp Plant resembled similar compounds found within the Human Body. “This is remarkable! The human body has a special operating system made with specific receptors that respond positively to the compounds found in Hemp.” This response is unlike many other plants having the distinctive ability to support cell communication and function throughout the body.

They discovered the market was missing a clean branded, exquisitely crafted CBD product line. A skincare line that included CBD, while excluding THC and other ingredients such as parabens, mineral oils, toxic fragrances, chemical preservatives and petroleum were nearly non-existent. Prior to the inception of CBD Care Garden, the wondrous properties of CBD were unavailable to the population at large, sold solely online and in dispensaries. With a bold intention and a clear vision of making clean, hemp-based, luxury skincare products accessible to the world, The CBD Care Garden company was born.

“With firsthand personal experience from our customers, it has become profoundly evident to us that, “A lifestyle that includes hemp just makes sense.” -CBD Care Garden.

As a mother, I want to leave a legacy for my children and family. With CBD Care Garden, I feel I am part of something much larger than myself. CBD Care Garden is helping people understand there’s more to hemp and the cannabis plant species than “feeling high.” The fact that I get to be part of such an incredible, talented team just makes my heart happy. I am very blessed. I believe in this company, but more than that…I believe in CBD Care Garden’s creators. To be apart of a company who is dedicated to helping others with a committed heart fulfills my life with great purpose.”
