Hi, my name is Dave Hardy and I am one of the co-founders and partners in Keola Life LLC. I live in Lake Tahoe (Nevada side) with my wife, Donna and 2 Chocolate Labradors, Cass and Bear. When I am not running my business I love to spend time with my grandkids and 4 adult daughters. My passions are being outdoors, enjoying LIVE Music, and riding my Harley Davidson in the beautiful mountains we are blessed to call home.
I was born with a birth defect, bi-lateral club feet. This required several surgeries and hundreds of hours of physical therapy to allow me to walk in a somewhat normal fashion. I remember going trick or treating in a wheelchair when I was 3 or so and really walking and then running wasn’t a thing until I was 4 years old. A lot of people would call this a handicap, but I feel it was a blessing as it made me tougher and created a strong drive to succeed as walking wasn’t easy and took years to perfect.
Over the years my ankle joints and joints in my feet became progressively worse and in my late 40’s I started taking ibuprofen (NSAIDs) regularly for the pain that was 24/7. It got so bad that in my 50’s I was taking 4-6 ibuprofen a day, and on really bad days I would take prescription pain pills like Norco or Vicodin. This was not healthy for my liver and digestive system; it was causing more collateral harm than the pain it was relieving.
I was fortunate to be introduced to CBD by my brother who worked for Folium Biosciences, a premier grower and extractor of Zero THC CBD. I make a point about Zero THC for a reason. I run several businesses and have no desire or time to be “buzzed”, so getting the benefits of CBD without the “high” was essential for me. Once I tried the Hemp-based (CBD) topical products (balms and salves) and the ingestible products (gel caps and tinctures) I was amazed that I was able to go without much Advil and very rarely needed my prescription pain meds. I was so grateful for the dramatic change in my life, I started to investigate further. I wanted to learn as much as I could about CBD and ultimately wanted to figure out how I could be in the business of helping others by sharing CBD with them. I have not taken 1 ibuprofen or 1 prescription pain killer in over 2 years! Hallelujah! CBD has saved my life!
I was fortunate enough to be introduced to Scott Trudeau, a highly talented branding and design expert and we formed a company to market the Keola brand of CBD. We take great pride in creating the highest quality Broad Spectrum Hemp products. Our topical balm is amazingly effective to relieve pain and inflammation. Our gel caps and tinctures are highly effective and very competitively priced. Our Keola K-9 Pet Tincture is based in salmon oil to provide Omega 3 fatty acids as well as Broad Spectrum Hemp Oil (commonly known as CBD). All of our products are non-GMO, grown with organic farming practices and are thoroughly tested as zero THC and pesticide FREE.
The wonderful thing for me personally is producing a product that truly helps improve the quality of people’s lives. It is very rewarding and exciting to see and hear all of the success stories from our customers. We would love for you to experience the benefits that we have experienced too. In fact, for a limited time, please log in to www.keolalife.com and we will send you a sample balm stick FREE with no strings attached. We find once you try the product we feel you will be back to order more.
If anyone reading this has questions about how Broad Spectrum Hemp Products (CBD) can help in their lives, please feel free to contact us at [email protected]. One of the founders/owners of the company will personally answer your questions.
PS: A note for those of you who have “fur family members”. My family has raised Chocolate Labs for years and our original “mama” dog, Mama Cass is now 14 years and experiencing some of the more severe age-related issues including arthritis, pain, and anxiety. Her quality of life has been so much better after using our CBD products for pets. CBD is great for these issues with animals including dogs, cats even horses as well. If you think about it, back through the history of North America and for that matter “the world”, Hemp has grown wild everywhere. Hemp has been in the food supply as bison, buffalo and other game ate hemp and they were part of the food supply for humans. Native Americans used hemp in many ways including natural medicinal uses as well as creating rope, and other supplies.
