Now more than ever it’s vital for businesses to give back to their communities. From providing local employment to a feel-good work environment, the success of a business can rely heavily on the spirits of their employees.

Which is why Dave DiCosola and Kam Norwood, two friends and entrepreneurs inspired by the promise of CBD as a healthy answer to some of life’s most common stresses and ailments, founded Half Day CBD. This tight-knit family business is making a difference in not only the lives of their employees, but in the lives of local hemp farmers as well.

Based in Chicago, Illinois, Half Day CBD works directly with local hemp farmers to source their oil, isolate and hemp flower, ensuring top-notch, pesticide-free quality as a part of their rigorous production standards. This ensures they’re securing their products from U.S. based Hemp farmers, as opposed to outsourcing production to an artificial lab.

From their meticulous growing and harvesting standards to final processing and formulation, Half Day CBD strives to provide full transparency in their manufacturing process to the consumer, and stands by their guarantee to deliver complete satisfaction of their products. Not only that, but the brand is also committed to hiring a diverse team of workers as a way to support local and often underserved communities.
