In 2016, Jay was contacted by his longtime friend, J.P. Larsen, who had spent the last 5 years working with hemp farmers in the US and abroad. Although the demand for CBD was growing by the day, the two recognized the lack of quality online retailers with fairly priced CBD products. Utilizing J.P.’s direct access to US-based industrial hemp farms and Jay’s marketing experience, Medterra was born. From its start in Jay’s living-room, the Medterra team has quickly expanded to over 50 employees and operates out of its headquarters in Irvine, California.
Now one of the leaders in the CBD space, Medterra has continued its focus on providing its customers with CBD products that they can trust and rely upon without the worry of THC. With testing and compliance at the forefront of their operations, Medterra works with a single partner farm in Kentucky that grows hemp specifically for Medterra products. Medterra now sells products in the US, Europe, and Asia with 1,000+ retail locations carrying Medterra on their shelves.
