Why has CBD come into the picture?

Jonah Kaplan and Café team member Nicky del Pozo started using it for chronic pain relief from old injuries and were immediately impressed with the results.

“I was taking an Advil every day,” Jonah said. But once he started using CBD, that daily Advil became a thing of the past. 

“It’s a wellness thing and we wanted to share that with people, ” Jonah said of CBD, adding that it’s overcoming its “negative stigma” thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties and approval for usage in epilepsy medication for children.
