Founder & CEO at TONIC, Co-Founder Tricolla Farms & Bardo Labs

TONIC was born out of necessity. Brittany was looking for a natural way to manage her anxiety and depression. Something that could help her like cannabis had, but would be workday-friendly.
Her work as a personal trainer and health coach provided her with a pretty deep knowledge of herbal remedies. Adaptogens like ashwagandha were something she used herself and recommended to my clients.
When she learned about CBD, she decided to give what she honestly thought of as “fake weed” a shot. She was shocked at how well it actually worked, but the lightbulb moment didn’t happen until she really took the time to understand how CBD and the Endocannabinoid System were actually working to provide these marked results.
She began combining CBD with ashwagandha root because she realized they have similar effects, but take different pathways to get there. The idea was that together they could cover more ground, doubling down on each other’s effects to create a stress-relieving, mood-boosting, adaptogenic powerhouse … and that’s exactly what happened.
