Kadenwood was formed to create exciting brands and products for the future. Their first focus in the consumer products marketplace is on shaping CBD into a trusted, mainstream wellness category. To ensure success, Kadenwood merged a team of proven industry heavyweights in CPG marketing and innovation with a vertically integrated, seed-to-shelf CBD farm group. In September 2019, Kadenwood launched its collection of branded products with the goal of creating enduring brands people trust as being safe and effective.
Kadenwood launched its first brand, LEVEL SELECT™, in the personal care category. All of Level Select’s CBD oil comes from Kadenwood’s own U.S. hemp farms ensuring the highest quality and purity while containing no THC. This quality is further backed by farm leadership who received the “Best CBD Farmers of 2018 Nationwide” award. Kadenwood is also partnering with government agencies to help define strong standards and regulations for CBD.
