Discover CBD continues to expand with new stores opening up across the country. The latest city to join the ranks is Olathe, Kansas with a store owned by Mallory Saunders-Harman. She and her family already understand the benefits that come with a high-quality CBD product and now she wants to share them with the community in her hometown.
“I am an advocate of CBD! I started to use CBD a few years ago as a way to ease anxiety. I still use it and have advocated for my family to use it! My husband also uses it now to help with migraines and sleep quality—he uses the Active CBD Oil capsules and the Active CBD Oil roll on,” Saunders-Harman said.
Her husband isn’t the only one using CBD, she explains her mother is also using a combination of tinctures and salve to manage the pain she experiences from neuropathy after undergoing chemotherapy.
“I recommend the products in our store because I use them myself and I have given them to my family,” she said continuing, “I’m excited to share CBD with our neighbors! We’ve had many people stop by as they walk around the neighborhood and ask questions about our products. I’m looking forward to continuing to learn and sharing what I’ve learned with our customers!”
Saunders-Harman says several factors affected her thought process as she looked for a way to have a positive impact on the community. She previously worked as a project manager and an executive at a construction company—a high stress profession that proved to be brutal with her anxiety. That is what motivated her to try CBD in the first place. Now, Saunders-Harman says she wants to help others find a path to relief.
“It is my intent to make this store a source of CBD knowledge for our local community. When it is safe to have social gatherings again we will be offering small classes (Q&A sessions) weekly in our store’s gathering area,” she said, “In addition, we will be supporting a couple of local organizations that have made huge positive impacts in the Kansas City metro area.”
Education and community support are at the core of the Discover CBD mission. They are attributes that Sanders-Harman takes seriously as she works to spread knowledge in her hometown. She stresses the importance of quality control measures in the industry—including the use of batch testing and sharing third-party lab results on every Active CBD Oil product. This allows customers to have accurate results for the specific product they purchased.
“Many of our competitors in the area have lab results available but the test results are several years old. My staff is very knowledgeable about CBD but are also honest about what results a customer can experience. At the end of the day it’s more important to build trust and knowledge than to just make any old sale,” she said.
Her commitment to quality and CBD education makes Sanders-Harman a perfect addition to the Discover CBD family.
“I was looking for an investment that would be a positive impact in my local community. I knew that CBD had the potential to help people, and as I researched more into Discover CBD, I found that the company fit my values as a business owner,” she said.
The community of Olathe is said to be one of the fastest growing in the country. The town boasts an active lifestyle, from competitive sports for participants of all ages, parks, bike trails, and several nearby lakes.
“Olathe is a great fit for an active, healthy lifestyle and CBD definitely fits into that mindset,” Saunders-Harman explains.
She leads a continually active lifestyle with her husband and her two daughters, including a family favorite tradition of taking scuba diving trips. Sanders-Harman is a self-proclaimed animal lover with a big heart.
“We currently have a dog and a cat. In the past my family fostered bunnies for the Missouri House Rabbit Society, a local rescue group. In my store well behaved pets are always welcome,” she said.
And yes, she is a huge sports fan who naturally roots for the Kansas City Chiefs & Royals, and the KU Jayhawks!
Beautiful store, knowledgeable owner, picked up some Active salve for my knees, 1100 mg jar, as the owner suggested, and it worked great! Very happy with my experience at the store and the CBD results.
