IT ALL STARTED WITH A POT BROWNIE

A few years ago, our co-founder’s grandmother asked him to procure her some marijuana.

Apparently, it was all the rage amongst her friends, and between her diabetes and her husband’s Parkinson’s, she was ready to try anything that could help.

But she was scared. She hated smoking, vaping confused her, and half the people she knew who had tried an edible had overdone it in a terrifying way. So, frightened but hopeful, she asked her grandson for help.

As it happened, a law school friend had left the law to become a baker, and she was able to supply a brownie from her inventory. But, like most edibles, it was far too potent for safety. 100mg of THC in a single square was a recipe for disaster. So he sat in the kitchen and meticulously sliced that brownie into 20 pieces, sealed each in a plastic bag, and gave them to his grandmother with directions to eat half a piece at a time.

Needless to say, her fears were not assuaged. A scrap of brownie had the ability to put her in a bad place? That seemed too much to risk. And so those brownie bits sat in the back of her freezer, never to be touched. All the while, her pain and her husband’s sleep troubles carried on.

Our founder decided that what they needed was a different kind of edible. Something healthy, something precise, something that wasn’t scary at all. Colorado said 10mg was a standard dose, but even he — a seasoned consumer — felt that 10 was too much. His grandmother didn’t want to get stoned. She wanted to feel better. All she needed was a little help. So he experimented and refined, and in the end decided that 2.5mg was the goldilocks number. Enough to relax, not enough to intoxicate. Enough to ease her pain, and no more. Relaxation, safely.

With the dosage nailed down, he turned next to the vehicle. Baked goods were out: if the marijuana helped, his grandmother’s diabetes would make daily consumption impossible. And pills were exactly the thing she was trying to avoid. So he went looking for something that would fit with his grandmother’s lifestyle. Something calming, yet healthy. Natural, but enjoyable. Something that would provide a sense of calm. Something she already loved. It took a little while, but in the end the answer was obvious: TEA.

And so Stillwater was born.

There’s more to the story of course. There were the months of work to develop a water-soluble form of THC, that being the key to accurate dosing. Then there were the years spent building a factory, getting it licensed, and developing production processes that ensured perfect dosing for every item we made. We wanted to make products that any grandmother would feel safe consuming. Because, in the end, it’s about feeling better. And you can’t feel better until you feel safe. That’s what we want to offer our customers: the sense of safety they need to feel better.

So live your life to the fullest. Stillwater Brands is committed to matching every consumer with the dose that’s best for them, no judgment, no hassle. Fat-free, calorie-free, sugar-free, and delicious. It’s the best in cannabis, helping to bring out the best in you.
