When you Google “Preferred CBD,” to find out what, precisely, this thriving San Diego-based company is about, the answer is evident from the very top entry of that search: it’s the company’s website with a link that says “Preferred CBD — The Choice For Veterans.” Couldn’t ask for clearer messaging. And so it is for Preferred CBD.
For this PuraPhy exclusive, we caught up with a busy Eric Manese, one of Preferred CBD’s co-founders, to dig a little bit deeper about the successful venture and its unique—and unabashedly patriotic—partnership with a couple of US veterans’ organizations.
Tell us how Preferred CBD came to be?
Preferred CBD represents the result of longtime friends who decided to come together in the CBD business after the passing of the Farm Bill in 2018 with the sole intention of providing the masses with only the highest quality CBD products available in the marketplace.
In a sentence, if possible, how is Preferred CBD different from the countless other CBD providers?
The founders of Preferred CBD have decades of proven experience in the distribution of a wide array of products with some of the largest national retailers in both brick-and-mortar as well as online and we pride ourselves in our rigorous vetting process resulting in identifying only the highest quality CBD products made available to consumers.
To the best of your knowledge, is yours the only CBD company affiliated in any way with the US military?
Preferred CBD is the leader in sourcing and providing private label and branded CBD products to the US veteran community through established partnerships with the United States Veterans Chamber of Commerce and Veterans Advantage. With CBD sales referred by these veterans groups, Preferred CBD is able to make charitable contributions back to these two veteran nonprofit organizations. This reciprocal agreement provides needed aid and services to so many of our veterans.
What do you say to your potential customers who may have a misperception that Preferred CBD favors one political party over the other?
Preferred CBD is completely agnostic when it comes to politics as we’re solely in the business of providing ease from discomfort and we proudly serve all customers seeking relief through our products and therapies.
