Producing High-Quality, Pure, and 100% Natural CBD Oil


CBD Essence was founded by Don Ballou in 2014 because he couldn’t find anything product that he could trust to treat his various ailments. Don had spent a lifetime fighting these ailments. Don found that regular use of CBD oil helps his symptoms and lets him lead the full life he dreamed of EVERY SINGLE DAY.

Don founded CBD Essence because during his research he discovered that many companies were using cheap technologies and harmful chemicals to mass-produce “CBD oil” that was ineffective and unsafe. 

Don decided that his CBD company was only going to use the best manufacturing practices to produce the highest-quality CBD regardless of cost. So he invested in the cleanest processing method called “CO2 Extraction,” and then decided that his company would only ship CBD to customers within 24-hours of it being processed. The results were a CBD product that is the freshest, most natural CBD on the market and is also the most potent and absorbable. Don’s vision and dedication to CBD are what makes CBD Essence the most beneficial CBD product on the market today.


Since 2014, We've been excited about helping people lead healthier and happier lives. Our main goal is to provide the most consistent and best CBD oil.

We focus on producing high-quality, pure, and 100% natural CBD oil made daily in small batches to maintain the highest quality and consistency.

Our Mission

We won’t make it until you buy it! Our “small batch” approach to CBD manufacturing not only ensures the quality and the consistency of our CBD oil, but it also makes sure that what you receive is the freshest and the most potent and absorbable CBD oil available on the market today.

The Original Small Batch CBD Company

From the beginning of CBD Essence in 2014, we decided to bring the best small-batch CBD to the market regardless of profit margins and scalability. We believe strongly in the overall benefits CBD can have on your wellbeing, which is why we set out to be the best CBD company instead of the biggest. All these years later, we live up to that promise by still guaranteeing freshness by only processing your CBD oil within 24-hours of shipping it to you.

Our founder, Don Ballou, discovered some disturbing trends in the CBD business during the early years. Companies were cutting corners by using fillers and harmful chemicals to stretch the shelf life of their CBD and sacrifice potency for profit. As a daily CBD user himself, Don made a promise to his customers never to compromise their safety and the efficacy of his product in order to increase sales. He knew that a superior CBD product that guaranteed quality and safety (like CBD Essence does for all of its products) would sell in the long run because of customer loyalty. 

What resulted from Don’s vision is CBD Essence, the first small batch CBD company to offer pure full-spectrum CBD to their customers that is processed within 24-hours of shipping. CBD Essence was a pioneer in the emerging CBD market back in 2014, and as CBD sales are projected to reach $22 Billion in 2021, CBD Essence is still one of the most trusted CBD companies because of the principles instituted by Don from the beginning.

Don Ballou

By being the person who needs CBD oil on a daily basis and understanding all the problems people face from the inside, I was able to create a special formula for the CBD Essence oil that is simple, pure, and without any supplements that are so common among similar products. We make a specific colloidal emulsion that combines the CBD oil with the coconut oil in such a way that the coconut oil protects the CBD through the stomach acid. As a result, it delivers CBD molecules more intact where they’ll get readily absorbed.

Today, I feel happy and fulfilled by the fact that I can live an active and healthy life from the inside out and help people achieve the same by using CBD Essence products that really make an impact
