CBD maker, conservationist Jane Goodall partner to support environmental initiatives

A Canada-based CBD manufacturer has entered an exclusive partnership with wildlife conservationist Jane Goodall to co-develop natural health and wellness products that will help support environmental conservation and reforestation initiatives.

Neptune Wellness Solutions Inc., headquartered in Laval, Quebec, will work with Goodall to develop plant-based hand sanitizers, essential oils and hemp-derived products under the existing Forest Remedies brand. The products will launch this summer.

“The health of people, animals and the environment are interconnected; this pandemic demonstrates this,” Goodall said in a statement.

“However, if we all make ethical choices, every day, our collective power for change is great.”

Through the partnership, Neptune has donated $25,000 and will give 5% of all sales from the Forest Remedies products to the Jane Goodall Institute.

The Forest Remedies products developed through the partnership will leverage Neptune’s collaboration agreement with International Flavors & Fragrances Inc. to develop hemp-derived products.
