Shop Canndigenous and Support Native-Owned Businesses This Indigenous Peoples’ Day

Canndigenous hemp products bring wellness to the forefront, including CBD and CBG gummies

Cambridge, Wisc., Oct. 5, 2023 — Canndigenous, the CBD hemp company that’s committed to doing everything “in a good way,” invites you to support Native American-owned businesses this Indigenous Peoples’ Day, October 9.

Indigenous Peoples’ Day was instituted in 1992 to honor the cultures and histories of Indigenous people in America. A counter-culture response to Columbus Day, the holiday offers an opportunity to recognize Indigenous people, traditions and small businesses in our communities and across the country.

“Doing things in a good way this holiday means considering the impact you make with your purchases. By supporting Native American-owned businesses, you help promote a better future for Indigenous people,” said Canndigenous founder and proud member of the Bad River Tribe, Rob Pero. “Of course, this doesn’t just apply to Indigenous Peoples’ Day, but it’s a good reminder to seek out excellent products made by Indigenous people and to shop in an intentional way.”

3 CBD Hemp Products to Try This Indigenous Peoples’ Day:

For The Mind Gummies

For The Mind gummies include CBD and CBG molecules that attach to the brain’s CB1 and CB2 receptors, causing an increase of the neurochemical anandamide. Known as the "bliss molecule,” anandamide promotes feelings of happiness and mental balance. For The Mind gummies contain 25mg of CBD and 25mg of CBG.

For The Body Gummies

Try Canndigenous’ for The Body gummies for euphoric sleep, pain relief and relaxation.
