Tony Bourdain, the Scottish Highland bull and mascot at Sonoma Hills Farm, greeted us with enthusiasm when we brought friends up for a tour last month

From the brink to bloom: We’re baaaaack (plus a 5-part Q&A)

by | Mar 2, 2024 | Journal | 0 comments

It’s been a minute since you’ve heard from us, friends. Thanks for your patience. 

See our Q&A below for details, but in short, here’s what’s up:

It’s hard to say this out loud, but the truth is, we almost had to throw in the towel. Trying to make it in the California cannabis market has been the most challenging thing we’ve ever done.

If it weren’t for a few extra-amazing women in our circle — and without you — we’d be writing now to say goodbye.

But with unimaginable luck and gratitude, we’re writing to say we’re BACK, BAYBEEE! And it’s only possible because we’re saying goodbye to state-regulated cannabis, and going all-in with nationwide hemp. 🌱


Q: But wait, will my “new and improved” Green Bee favorite(s) be as effective?

A: Yes. We spent the past year researching and testing new formulations using hemp-derived phytocannabinoids that studies show are as great or better for the skin as cannabis-derived THC. In fact, our products are now even more effective, because they’re made with phytocannabinoids (and other new exciting ingredients) that are:

  • More antioxidant
  • More anti-inflammatory
  • More bioavailable and therefore faster-acting

Q: Are there other reasons I should be happy about this change?

A: Yes! Now that we’re using only hemp, going forward ALL our products will be:

  • Available nationwide
  • Easy to buy from our website
  • Travel-friendly
  • and you won’t have to pay outrageous excise taxes anymore!

Q: When can I get the new products?
A: We’re going back into production next week! 🎉 Barring any more supply chain or extreme weather incidents, we expect to have products available on here our website and in a spa or boutique near you by the end of March/early April.

Q: But your website still shows everything is sold out…
A: Yeah, we’re working on it…we’re rebuilding the whole thing to make it easier for you to find and buy what you’re looking for. We’ll keep you posted. The URL will remain We’re sunsetting our .shop website now that we don’t legally need to maintain two separate websites for cannabis vs hemp.

Q: What’s next?
A: In the coming weeks, we will:

  • Introduce you to our new Spa Collection and what it all means
  • Explain the science behind the new phytocannabinoids
  • Ask you to vote on potential new products
  • Share sneak peeks of our new packaging
  • Introduce you to all the new products
  • Get your feedback on new ingredients we’re excited about
  • Drop more plant knowledge, as always 🌿

Thank you for hanging in here with us

We’ve already asked you for patience…and more patience…and more patience. Thank you for hanging in here with us, sincerely. 

You make this rollercoaster worth riding, no matter how scary it gets. And when you share your feedback, stories, and good energy, it stops us from white-knuckling it and lets us enjoy the ride. 

We’re over the moon with excitement of what’s to come. We hope you are too — but please: comment below or DM us on socials or email us with any Qs or concerns so we can respond. We’re in this together.
