I want to introduce myself - I’m Jess! I founded Winged in 2017 after CBD saved me from a dark place. I was battling crippling anxiety after a series of major life changes. I was pretty desperate…I hadn’t had a good night’s sleep in a loooong time and everyday I felt like I was on the verge of crying at any given moment. A friend recommended CBD and that combined with the practice of spiritual surrender (if interested look up Gabby Bernstein and the steps to spiritual surrender- the practice works!) I began to feel the tightness in my chest lessen. I felt like myself again - I was able to sleep through the night, was comfortable in my own skin, and there was a lightness back about me that I had lost.
I started researching CBD and how it affects the body and came to find out that CBD is SO SO beneficial to women in particular! I learned that statistically we suffer from anxiety, depression, PTSD and insomnia at about twice the rate of men. I started talking to many women in my life- these bad ass ladies who seemed to have it all together - and I noticed a common thread. They experienced the same feelings I did - feeling overwhelmed and battling bouts of anxiety almost every single day. I thought what if I could do something to help that?
That’s when the idea of Winged began to form. I wanted to share the relief I felt from CBD with other women and set out to design a CBD product line specifically formulated for women. I ran the idea by one of the smartest people I know, Tim Mount, who is a master formulator, kick ass educator and all around one of the best humans in my orbit. Tim loved the idea and wanted to help build a brand to support all the women in his life - and one day his young daughter. So we teamed up and Winged was formed.
It is our mission to empower women to be the best versions of themselves. We think that with products formulated specifically for her body and her needs, plus a supportive community of Winged women, we might just be able to do that. Our product launch is March 2019…we can’t wait to show you what we have planned. Please join us as we get ready to take flight. We love you.
