Our retailers loved Appa Life products so much that they began asking if we’d be willing to make products for their brands too. And so, our manufacturing business (Appa Extracts) was born.
Being entrepreneurs ourselves, we wanted to make sure our retailers didn’t encounter the hassles that we did on our journey. That’s why at Appa Extracts we guarantee we will:
Our team of dedicated and amazing individuals
is what makes things possible.
CEO & CO-FOUNDER
“Can we test this batch again Todd?”
A line her scientists – Todd Griffin, Ashley Neil and Ethan Berney – will inevitably hear whenever she visits the Appa Extracts laboratory in Locust, North Carolina. And it’s not for the lack of trust either. Todd, Ashley and Ethan are talented and skilled (and loyal) scientists with degrees up the wazoo and to be honest, she’s lucky to have em’.
Some say it’s a tad bit obsessive-compulsive. A lot will say she’s a perfectionist.
COO & CO-FOUNDER
“This industry is full of…!”
A loud sigh by Appa Life’s co-founder, Cory VonEgidy.
A frustration brought about by the current state of the CBD industry that is slowly mirroring “Big Pharma”. And an industry that will inevitably resemble the “Weight Loss” industry in the near future.
While most focus their resources on extracting money out of hemp, VonEgidy focused on the best methods to extract CBD – along with hundreds of other compounds – out of Hemp (Cold Extracted, hands down).
“I don’t like generalities”
Ethan is our resident genius. He’s got a strong conviction that science and generalities mix about as well as oil and water. Although his attention to detail can be overbearing and eye-roll-inducing to some – everyone sleeps well at night knowing there’s a keen and discerning eye on our product development.
