Creating Cannabis Infused Products With Love: Holistic Remedies LLC
I met Tosin in my previous career, and recently we reconnected over entrepreneurship and the power of plants. We both left the retail industry to pursue a goal with the greater good in mind, and both have found ways to utilize the skills we learned in our prior career to take our social entrepreneurship to the next level.
I have always been curious about CBD and hemp based skin products, and immediately had to try some for myself. As a farmer, I have many aches and pains. When I found myself suffering from severe back pain after pulling tomato plants & stakes, the CBD Healing Balm was my go to. Instead of aspirin, I could utilize a natural plant to relieve my pain. How amazing is that! Because of this,

Read below to learn more about Holistic Remedies LLC and their story!
Who are the entrepreneurs behind Holistic Remedies LLC, and what inspired your brand?
Tosin and Isaiah are the entrepreneurs behind Holistic Remedies LLC. We have been together for over seven years and have always bonded around our love for cannabis. We were inspired to break the negative stigma that is associated with the plant, and thus Love in a Jar was created in Isaiah’s basement. Isaiah and Tosin both drew from their natural talents to create their product line. Isaiah’s interest in creating and botany, coupled perfectly with Tosin’s love for helping people and her administrative background. Our love was the perfect recipe for Holistic Remedies to be created.
Where are you from? Where is your brand based?
Tosin is from Brooklyn originally, but moved to central NJ in middle school. She is now residing in East Orange. Isaiah is a NJ native, currently residing in Union, NJ. Our biggest audience for Holistic Remedies is in NY.
What are your favorite ways to use your products?
What has been your favorite part of starting a business?
Creativity with branding and marketing, networking/ meeting new people, introducing our brand to new customers, enlightening people about the holistic benefits of cannabis.
Running into unforeseen roadblocks that derive because we sell cannabis infused products. For example, we can only sell our hemp body butter on FB and IG, not our CBD healing balm. Another challenge has been increasing traffic to the website.
Why do you believe small, local businesses are important?
Because it keeps our local economy booming, creating jobs in the community. Also, small business owners give back to the community ( ie; Our upcoming Back to school Drive), and it’s good to help make your neighbors more money instead of pouring dollars into multi-million dollar businesses who don’t value their customers as much as a small business would.
How did you build your ingredients for your products? What made you decide to focus on hemp and CBD based products?
We were already interested in Cannabis because we enjoy using it. With cannabis legalization on the rise, we knew we wanted to be a part of the economic growth. Tosin also has parents who experience pain, and she works with patients who have pain too. Lots of people aren’t able to get relief from their prescriptions, and cannabis helps tremendously with pain. This intrigued to use this ingredient in our products.
If you could only define your brand in one sentence, what would you say?
Inspired by Hemp and Cannabis, Holistic Remedies was created out of love for the mind, body and spirit.
What is your opinion on the City of East Orange, and in what ways would you like to see the city change/remain the same?
We like that East Orange is an up and coming area, close to NY and highways. We like that the Mayor Ted Green makes himself available for his community. We like that East Orange has a multitude of different property types- you can find high rise buildings, residential areas, commercial real estate, etc. We want to see the parking rules lighten up and allow street parking after 2 am.
