The Cannabonez Story

Our story begins like so many other longtime dog owners. After turning seven, our beloved Roscoe started to lose a step. He was struggling up the stairs, tired easily, and seemed to have lost much of his appetite. He just wasn’t himself anymore. We knew we had to do something – and fast.

So we introduced Roscoe to non-psychoactive CBD oils. Thankfully, within a couple of weeks, we noticed an incredible improvement in his health and vitality. Stairs no longer proved a challenge for Roscoe, and he was less anxious overall. In addition to regaining his appetite, he was getting along better with other dogs. It was like the old Roscoe was back!

Now our mission is to help as many other four-legged friends enjoy the same benefits and lifestyle as Roscoe. We all love our pets. Why not give them the best quality of life possible?

Why CannaBonez?

CannaBonez is a specially formulated blend of Hemp Derived Terpenes, CBD Isolate, and USDA Certified Organic MCT Oil. There are over 17 different Terpenes in our specially blended formula. Our CBD isolate is the highest grade isolate available on the market with a Pharma Grade Lab certification and a purity of 99.96%. CBD by itself has a wide array of health benefits, but when we add our signature Terpene blend, we enhance the CBD to a greater extent. Adding different Terpenes allows us to guide your pet’s CBD experience.

What are some of the overall benefits of CBD for pets?

Other members of our Woof-pack have used this product for:

Pain & Inflammation

Joint Stress, & Lowered Mobility

Aggression & Anxiety

Threat of Seizures

Reduced Circulation & Heart Problems

Lowered Appetite & Nausea

Skin Sensitivity & Other Allergies

Negative Effects of Aging


What Makes Your Products Different?

Several years of research and development have gone into the making of Mumm’s Signature Terpene blend. Terpenes are simple hydro-carbon chains that enhance the therapeutic benefits of the CBD known as the “entourage effect.” The therapeutic benefits ranging from anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antioxidant, decrease nociceptive pain, muscle relaxation, gastrointestinal issues, and anti-spasmodic. Our products are lab-tested, and contain 0.00% THC.

How does CBD work?

CBD interacts with receptors in the brain and immune system. Receptors are tiny proteins attached to the cells that receive chemical signals from different stimuli and help cells respond. The neurotransmitters are released into the synaptic cleft by exocytosis. Once CBD enters the bloodstream and breaks the blood brain barrier, (think of it as the distribution center) to all the synaptic clefts, it migrates throughout the body to effect inflammation, reduce pain, & calm stress. During our research we have seen that CBD has an anti-inflammatory effect. CBD engages with the endocannabinoid system in many organs throughout your pets’ body, helping to reduce inflammation.

Kara Reich is the lady behind one of our newer product lines, Me Time Botanicals. You can come in store to sample most of her products, or read on to get to know more about Kara!


Your website:  www.metimebotanicals.com

Your Instagram: @metimebotanicals

Founder’s name(s): Kara Reich

Tell us your story of how you came to create Me Time Botanicals: 

As a wife and stepmom to two preteens, I found it challenging to find me time and typically put myself last on the list. After many tear-filled stressful nights, I finally realized how important it was to fill my own cup. As the passion grew for self-care, I whipped up a coffee scrub with simple, plant-based ingredients right from the kitchen and enjoyed an evening soak in the tub. Feeling refreshed and energized, it hit me that wanted to share this Me Time secret with everyone. 

After enrolling in Formula Botanica's Organic Cosmetic Science School to broaden my natural skincare knowledge, Me Time Botanicals was born & I never looked back. Me Time Botanicals thoughtfully blends passion with skin-loving plants/plant-based actives that naturally contain antioxidants, vitamins, essential fatty acids, and phytonutrients to nourish you inside and out during your self-care skincare ritual. Carve out a few extra moments to relax & recharge your mind, body, & soul with moisturizing oils & luxurious butters, mineral rich salts, and botanical nectars passionately blended so you can enjoy your me time.

My promise to you is to never use synthetics in products, always be plant-based, cruelty-free and keep your skin soft & radiant at an affordable price.


Who is another local maker you admire?

Kelly Hauschild of Homegrown Holistic. She is an remarkable herbalist, yoga teacher, amazing mom and all around vibrant human that encouraged and inspired me to launch my skin and body care line. 

What’s your favorite Charleston Restaurant?

My husband and I had our first date and 3 years later our wedding reception at Poogan's Porch! Such great memories plus those biscuits are fantastic.


What is your favorite song to jam out to while you create products or look for inspiration?  

I have few mixes on youtube that plays random songs but Wild Child by Kenny Chesney always seems to pop up and anything by Pink. It connects me to my inner badass and reminds me to stay free. 

What is your favorite product you offer right now and what was the inspiration behind it/why will people love it? 

Although I should haven't "favorites" among my creations, Morning Perk Eye & Facial Serum will always be near to my heart! I actually created Morning Perk for our wedding guests. I wanted something our family and friends would enjoy and actually use instead of something that would just be pitched. It became such a hit that I launched Me Time Botanicals.

Company Founder: Emily Kirby

Share a fun fact about your brand or your story/ tell us about your products: 

Before heading to college, my dad told me I should think about majoring in Graphic Design. Being a stubborn teenage girl, I quickly turned that idea down. Ha! A few years after graduating college, I realized he may have had a good point. :) So I went back to school for a graphic design, and that was the start of Texture Design Co! Lesson learned, sometimes parents have really good advice.

Who is another local maker you admire? 

I’m a huge fan of the beautiful weavings by Sunwoven. I love Erin’s use of color; she puts together the yummiest color combinations! We have one of her pieces in our living room, and it really makes me smile. We now carry these weavings in our store, too!

What’s your favorite Charleston Restaurant? 

Basil is my “tried and true”! It was one of the first restaurants I visited when I moved to Charleston 11 years ago, and it is still a top favorite. Their Thai food never gets old!

What is your favorite song to jam out to while you create products or look for inspiration?  

It changes regularly, but this week I’ve listened to ’Say Something’ by Chris Stapleton and Justin Timberlake on repeat.

What is your favorite product you offer right now and what was the inspiration behind it/why will people love it? 

A Charleston Baby’s First Year Book will forever be a favorite project! I started working on it when we found out that we were expecting our first child. I wanted to create a baby book that I was excited to fill out, and I’m so happy with how it turned out. The pages are full of colorful illustrations of Charleston, and I think it is the perfect baby gift for new parents in the Lowcountry!

Our goal is to add a little sunshine to the closets of women everywhere, but our mission to spread happiness doesn’t end with clothing! Escapada Living supports various charities both locally and abroad. The Escapada Living Children’s Fund was established 4 years ago to help support the local community in Solo, Indonesia (where our factory is located). We are so grateful for the community’s acceptance and support, and our fund provides care, school supplies, and new experiences for the children of two orphanages within the village. Our production manager is very much involved in the children's daily lives, taking them on fun excursions and constantly seeking out ways to improve their well-being. The Solo community has given so much to us, it’s nice to be able to give back.

Who is another local maker you admire?

Where do I begin? I’m a big fan of Hart tassel earrings (Hart Hagerty), Charleston Rice Beads from Candy Shop Vintage, and the fabulous stationery from Texture Design Co...just to name a few!


What’s your favorite Charleston Restaurant?

My new favorite restaurant is Melfi’s, but my go-to restaurant is The Obstinate Daughter. You have to try the Gnocchi alla Romana!

What is your favorite song to jam out to while you create products or look for inspiration?  

The Pandora station at the office gets shuffled regularly, but I tend to like upbeat tunes when searching for inspiration!


What is your favorite product you offer right now and what was the inspiration behind it/why will people love it?

Tough question! Off-the-shoulder styles are so in right now, so I’d have to say the Tasseled Monica Dress and the Stretch-Knit Bonnie Dress. The Monica is super fun and flirty - perfect for a day out on the town! The Stretch-Knit Bonnie Dress is stylish, comfortable and cute! For tops, my go-to is our ¾ Sleeve Susan top. It’s available in both our signature rayon fabric and stretch-knit fabric.

Abby, share a fun fact about your brand or your story/ tell us about your products: 

I created this collection when I first moved to Charleston and was totally falling in love with the city. I photographed these on a medium format film Hasselblad camera, which is an incredibly beautiful and mechanical Swedish camera. Shooting film slows down the process of composing and creating my images much more than digital, plus I love the soft way it captures light. I don’t shoot film much for my client projects, so I started my print shop to share my love of film photography and Charleston with everyone! 

Who is another local maker you admire?

My friend Julie of For Heaven Bakes makes INCREDIBLE 3D cakes! Seriously, look her up and you will be blown away.

What’s your favorite Charleston Restaurant? 

My go-to for dinner is always Leon’s! 

What is your favorite song to jam out to while you create products or look for inspiration?  

My favorite band is Tennis and I’m always jamming to their song “Never Work for Free.” I listen to them every single day!


What is your favorite product you offer right now and what was the inspiration behind it/why will people love it? 

My favorite photo in the shop is 1 East Battery. I love the details on the house, the glowy sunset light, and the palm tree! The neutral colors work in anyone’s space, and it looks amazing framed in either white or black!

Aren’t Abby’s photographs beautiful?! Come by soon to shop them in person!

Meet Our Makers: Charleston Hemp Company
IMG_2128.JPG

We are so thrilled to introduce you to our latest vendor, Charleston Hemp Company. There are lots of misconceptions out there about CBD oil, but no, we aren’t selling marijuana! The difference between hemp and marijuana is the ratio of THC to CBD; hemp products have a higher ratio of CBD, and less than .3% THC. Charleston Hemp Company works closely with MUSC to test their products, and so far we are the only downtown shop carrying CBD products (vape pens, oils, salves, and more!). Come by soon to see our selection, & read on to get to know Malia from Charleston Hemp Company and their products a little better!

Tell us about some of the known benefits of CBD:

Benefits vary per person and can differ based on other factors like your diet, body composition, etc. Known possible benefits include pain management, combatting anxiety, anti-seizure properties, reducing side effects from cancer/cancer related treatments, and even assisting with sleep. CBD is also known to have anti-inflammatory properties and can potentially help conditions such as acne.

What’s your favorite product of yours right now, and what was the inspiration behind it?

I love our salve. There's 100 mg of CBD in each 1oz jar. I think a lot of people who are skeptical of CBD and don't want to try it orally go for the salve. Within 30-40 mins, people will come back and tell us what a difference they feel. It's simple, topical, and great for spot treatments. It can literally go on anything and everything and I feel like it really works. Sunburns, bug bites, joint pain or even muscle cramps after a workout.

Tell us a fun fact about your products:

We designed our packaging and labeling after the 1914 $10 bill. They are actually harvesting a hemp filled on the back of the bill! In most states, it was a requirement to grow hemp since it was used for the majority of different textile products. The first American flag, by Betsy Ross, was actually made out of hemp as well. These days, regulations only allow for 20 South Carolina farmers allowed to grow industrial hemp. Charleston Hemp Company is one of those!

Tell us a Charleston restaurant you're loving right now:

Uneeda Sicilian, Stella's, The Workshop


Who is another local maker/company you admire?

There are so many that go to local markets that we have created great bonds with, but R&R Acres and their local honey/chocolate covered honey are delicious! 

What’s your favorite song to jam out to while you're working on your farm or heading to a local market?

Throwback playlists on Spotify, songs that everyone pretty much knows and have jammed to at one point in life.
