Happy Pride Month from the Medterra family! We’d like to take this opportunity to leverage our platform to share our love, appreciation, and support for our LGBTQ+ team members, friends, family, and customers.
When Medterra first started, we wanted to bring CBD to everyone. But as we’ve grown as a company, as a team, and as a diverse group of individuals, we realized that that isn’t enough. For us, CBD is about reducing the stress and discomfort that life brings, and in doing so, learning to embrace our true selves – the versions of us that can so often get buried underneath the difficult realities of everyday life.
In the spirit of Pride Month, we would like to announce that we are launching a partnership with True Colors United, an organization that supports and advocates for LGBTQ+ youth and youth of color who are experiencing homelessness.
True Colors United is working to create a world in which every LGBTQ+ young person, wherever they live, is celebrated for being their authentic selves. LGBTQ+ youth have a 120% higher risk of experiencing homelessness – often the result of family rejection or discrimination based on their gender identity or sexual orientation.
Research shows that up to 40% of the homeless youth population is LGBTQ+, a large disparity from their representation in the general population. These young people have unique needs like identity and transition-related support that not all providers have the knowledge or resources to assist with.
By providing training and education programs to communities and service providers, advocating on the local, state, and federal levels, and collaborating with youth action programs, True Colors United is working to prevent youth homelessness.
To help do our part, we are launching our Pride Bundle, which will be available at 40% off, and donating 10% of the proceeds to True Colors United.
Our Pride Bundle is designed to help you with every step of your day, from morning to night, so that you can feel like your true self – free of stress, and ready to live each day to the fullest. In it, you’ll find:
Good Morning Capsules
Fast-acting Liposomal CBD paired with Caffeine and B-Vitamins, plus adaptogens like Maca and Turmeric to help you get a fresh start on the day, maintain balance, and have the energy to take on everything you need to do.
True Full Spectrum Drops
These delicious Chocolate-Mint drops contain the full range of benefits the hemp plant has to offer – including 2mg of THC in each dose. They’re perfect for de-stressing after a hard day at work and finding a deeper, more relaxing CBD experience.
Sleep Tight Gummies
Get your best night’s sleep every night. These Strawberry-flavored gummies contain 25mg of CBD Isolate and 2mg of Melatonin in each dose + sleep promoting botanicals like Chamomile, Lemon Balm and Passion Flower.
We’re committed to using the power of CBD to do good in the world – not just during Pride Month, but 365 days a year.
We would love for you to join us in support of True Colors United. If you would like to learn more about their mission, you can find their information here, and if you would like to support them directly, you can find their donations page here.
Happy Pride Month,
