Exact Nature Botanicals’ CBD Products

Exact Nature Botanicals LLC, a new e-commerce company founded by a father and son (father Thomas White and son Daniel White) who have both battled addiction, has launched some of the first CBD-based products designed specifically to help people suffering from drug and alcohol addictions. The company’s products are formulated to help curb addictive cravings, ease depression and anxiety, and improve sleep.

“We want to shed light on CBD’s role in helping manage these issues while demystifying and destigmatizing CBD in the process,” Thomas White said.
