Our Story

When & Where
It All Started

In 2014, Carter Lash, owner of Carter’s Aromatherapy Designs, wanted to help a close family member in need. He decided to create a pain cream that turned out to really help. Knowing the relief he brought to his dear relative, and seeing a demand for more products that were truly effective, Carter understood what his mission was going to be. After making some business decisions he left his hometown of Stowe, VT and headed out west to get established in what seemed like a promising California Cannabis Industry market.

The Journey &
The Adventure

Being a one-man show gave Carter the freedom to really put everything he wanted into creating the CAD Pain Cream. He held nothing back in sourcing the best ingredients and materials to make sure each batch was exactly as he envisioned it. He personally mixed each jar and delivered it to dispensaries up and down the state to make sure it reached as many patients in need as it could. Patients would constantly remind him of why he did what he did with stories of people that had been helped by the CAD Pain Cream. The knowledge of how much Carter was helping people was enough to distract from the long hours and personal funding he was using to survive in the wild west of the 2014 cannabis industry.

Never Change

Since then the reach has gotten bigger, the location has expanded, but the high-quality ingredients and process has not changed. You will find only the best essential oils, organic butters and fully compliant whole plant cannabis-derived CBD oil in CAD products.
