Tonic Vibes | What we Love

TONIC was born out of necessity. I was looking for a natural way to manage my anxiety and depression. Something that could help me like cannabis had, but would be workday-friendly.

I began combining CBD with ashwagandha root because I 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.

“The results were lifechanging and that’s when I knew I had to share this with the world. That’s how the O.G. got its name – it was the original blend that started it all”
After experiencing first hand the difference that these formulas can make mentally and physically, I made it my mission to bring the most healing to the most people and knew that in order to do that, quality, consistency and intention had to be present in every stage of the process.

That is why we started our own hemp farm, Tricolla Farms, in upstate NY. Growing our own hemp flower allows us to dictate the cultivation practices, genetics, and overall quality of the plants that ultimately become your TONIC products.

Thank you for caring about where your hemp is sourced and who you are supporting when you purchase your products; thank you for sharing your stories and spreading the word.

Your love, support, and most importantly, your trust is appreciated beyond words and I promise never to take it for granted.

Happy healing,

Brittany Carbone, Founder & CEO

The CBD market is about to get even hotter

The CBD market is about to get even hotter

The CBD market is hot right now — but it could it be even hotter if consumers understood what they are buying.

Today, many people are interested in CBD-based alternative medicines but are confused about the types of products available to them and which brands to purchase. They simply lack the evidence-based information they need to make comparisons.

Introducing Flower & Tonic, a new resource for helping consumers make confident, informed decisions around CBD products. By working closely with laboratories, researchers, clinicians, cultivators, manufacturers, distributors, attorneys, and opinion leaders, we have personally tried, tasted, and evaluated over one hundred CBD products. We spotlight and bring recognition to the CBD products that we know are safe, effective and most likely to deliver on their promises.

Flower & Tonic was founded with a single mission: to eliminate the confusion around CBD products and create a forum that educates consumers and connects them to the very best products. As even more CBD products enter the market, our site will continue to evolve with additional insights and product recommendations.
