How we started & why

Jarrett and Hiram founded Canbiance while finishing their undergraduate careers at the University of California Berkeley. While both were completing their degrees in Chemical Engineering, Jarrett experienced a period of Adderall addiction and abuse that negatively impacted his physical and emotional health. After realizing how many students lives have been effected by Adderall abuse on campus Jarrett and Hiram decided to take action and provide an all-natural alternative. 

As avid canbiance users, Jarrett and Hiram understood the benefits that canbiance provides for anxiety, creativity, and sleep and desired to apply their chemical engineering education to create a product that can serve as an alternative to the often abused prescription drugs.

What we're doing now

From learning how healthy lifestyle changes and intentional cannabidiol (CBD) use have benefited our lives, we’ve adopted an educational and empowering approach toward helping others live their healthiest and happiest life. Our product line includes a suite of plant based effect driven: gummies, botanical tinctures, and topical products to serve as remedies to chronic daily challenges like focus, stress, sleep and pain. 

The Canbiance family has grown in strength and connection. Our content, boba pop-up events, and collaborative partnerships have transformed into engaging community events and conversations on health, wellness, and entrepreneurship.

What we have planned for the future

As we look toward 2021 we are filled with hope and optimism. We continue to seek and leverage the powers of technology to deliver consistent and progressive value to our consumers through our products, services, and philanthropy. We’re just at the frontier of innovation in the hemp industry which we believe will be driven by technology, healthcare, and data. 

We’re excited to spearhead our mission, which is to inspire and empower people to live their healthiest and happiest lives through healthy lifestyle changes and natural wellness products. We believe that with the collective adoption of healthy lifestyle changes and conscious community action we can strive to create a world without illness.
