New York, NY—HempFusionand Verdant Oasis have partnered up to donate 1,000 bottles of HempFusion’s Stress CBD Capsules formulated with ashwagandha to frontline workers in New York City, according to a press release.

Jason Mitchell, N.D., Co-CEO of HempFusion, explained: “This idea was originally inspired by the CEO of Verdant Oasis, Beata Jedrzewska, by asking the question ‘what more can we do to support those that so selflessly give themselves to help all of us?’ From there, the collaboration between HempFusion and Verdant Oasis began with Carl Germano, C.N.S., C.D.N., VP of Verdant Oasis, Medicine Hunter Chris Kilham, and the HempFusion team. Our goal was simple: Provide free nutritional products to the selfless frontline medical workers in New York City.”

The press release notes that New York City has been hit particularly hard, and the healthcare workers there are facing extraordinary stress, in addition to the physical dangers of working during the pandemic. The donation aims to help support these employees.

If you are a frontline worker outside of the NYC area, please stay tuned, as we are working on something for you in the near future.”
