Sagely Naturals provides plant-based CBD-infused products that support whole self wellness.

Meet Sagely Naturals, the Largest Female Founded CBD Company on the Market

As CBD-infused products continue to grow in popularity, Sagely Naturals has established itself everywhere from CVS to Neiman Marcus to Los Angeles’ natural food Mecca Erewhon. The company was founded in 2015 by Kerrigan Behrens and Kaley Nichol, who wanted to create approachable products for consumers utilizing the therapeutic benefits of CBD, without the psychoactive effects of THC. Sagely Naturals employs PhD chemists to create their proprietary medicinal products, like their best selling Relief and Recovery Cream or their Tranquility Roll-On. Buoyed by their own positive experiences with CBD, the founders hope their products make their way into the medicine cabinets of even the most unlikely CBD consumers.

“The first time I tried CBD in 2015, it literally changed my life,” Kerrigan Behrens said. “I have been dealing with chronic back pain for years and a friend recommended that I try it to help to alleviate the pain. Someone gave me some CBD honey to try and about an hour after I used it, my back felt better than I could remember in years. In that moment, I really felt like CBD had the potential to change a lot of peoples’ lives for the better.”

The next day, Behrens and her soon-to-be business partner Kaley Nichol got medical marijuana prescriptions and went to a dispensary for the first time. They were shocked by how unappealing the CBD products were to them. They left feeling displeased with the branding, and the ingredients — primarily, the fact that all the products contained high amounts of THC.

“With regards to form, the vast majority of marijuana sales in California currently are ‘flower’ (like the buds of the plant that you smoke) and ‘concentrates’ (like vaporizers or shatter—extremely high potency options that you also smoke),” Behrens said. “I personally don’t like smoking and edibles can be really unpredictable so I was left to wonder: Where are the products that I already use in my everyday life?”

“Also, the branding of the products really turned us off,” Kaley Nichol said. “As women, we felt like all the products were made for men. What if we want something that we can proudly display on our bathroom counters or carry around with us in our purses? There are extremely limited options for this. Most of the branding of products in the cannabis industry continue to be centered around this ‘stoner’ ideal. Instead, we wanted to create an inviting brand that feels therapeutic, familiar, and safe. One that you would see at Target or Whole Foods, not in a typical dispensary. There’s also the fact that women deal disproportionately with pain, stress, and sleep issues, which also happen to be the top three reasons why people are turning to CBD. Even today, there are no female focused wellness brands in this space (only beauty brands) that are specifically addressing women’s needs with CBD.”

The duo made it a priority to make set to make a line of products that you would already have in your medicine cabinet with specific amounts of CBD.

“Maybe even the most alarming impression we had prior to launch was that the products all contained really high amounts of THC,” Behrens said. “What if we want the therapeutic benefits of the cannabis plant but we don’t want to get high? It seemed to us that there was a huge opportunity to create products that really highlighted CBD instead of THC. So the mission for Sagely was born very early on out of a desire to create products that bring the familiar, everyday form of objects we use in our daily lives into this industry. After all, the majority of Americans aren’t comfortable getting high and the beauty of CBD is that it has all of these benefits with no psychoactive effects.”

Kerrigan and Kaley both had backgrounds working in finance and food industries prior to launching Sagely Naturals.

“Our shared experience working at investment banks not only gave us a foundational understanding of finance, it more important gave us a shared work ethic and drive that has been critical to launching a startup,” Behrens said. “While we didn’t have specific experience in the cannabis space prior to founding Sagely Naturals, our personal drive to help our customers has set us on a mission to bring the benefits of CBD to as many people as possible.”

The duo funded their launch with their own savings.

“We were the definition of bootstrapped,” Behrens said. “Kaley and I didn’t pay ourselves a salary and all we could really afford when we started the business was to launch with one product. We had ideas from the get-go for multiple collections and multiple products but we really had to be focused. At that time, in 2015, no one had heard of CBD so it felt like a huge risk to be putting our savings into a business that was so unfamiliar.”

Drawing on their finance backgrounds, the founders knew that in order to be able to grow, they would either have to turn a profit really quickly or raise money really quickly.

“Fortunately, we were able to turn a profit within six months of launching and so we were able to grow through cash flow for the first two years of the business,” Behrens said. “Since then, we’ve raised two rounds of capital, the first was half angel investors and half institutional and the most recent one was almost entirely from Venture Capital.”

As a small startup, Nichol said they initially struggled to find a contractor that was willing to work with a small initial order but could also scale a quality product.

“We wanted to work with contractors that had extensive experience in skincare as our approach to building Sagely was to create a great product experience that is familiar, enjoyable and can compete with other consumer products on the shelf,” Nichol said. “Luckily, we found a great contractor in Los Angeles that took a chance on us as founders and has since scaled with our business as we’ve launched into mass retail. On the sourcing front, similar to contracting, there weren’t many options for CBD in 2015 given it was such a new industry. It was critical to us to find an extractor that could provide U.S. grown, full-spectrum hemp-derived CBD with 0% THC. Even now, the market was primarily isolate or full-spectrum CBD oil but with small amounts of THC. As it was critical for Sagely Naturals to provide an approachable product that was derived from the whole plant, our CBD source was something we weren’t willing to compromise and we invested a lot of time to source the right product. We have since partnered with incredible farmers in states like Kentucky and Colorado.”

The duo see the future of the CBD market as one that continues to scale, albeit one that uses CBD in unnecessary categories.

“I see a big trend of adding CBD to cosmetics—like CBD in mascara or CBD in hair products—but I don’t understand the necessity of these types of products,” Behrens said. “CBD is an amazing anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant, but that doesn’t mean that you need it on your eyelashes! I also see big, established CPG brands starting to add CBD to things like food and personal care. I think as the trend continues to grow, we’ll continue to see novel products with CBD in them, however, it’s important to know why the company added CBD to the product and what benefits you’re getting because of it. CBD has so much therapeutic potential and I don’t want to see that meaningful, life-changing value diluted because it’s being added to products with no therapeutic value.”

Sagely Naturals plans to continue to grow but focusing on what they do best, bringing CBD-infused products to medicine cabinets.

“Our focus on topical applications like creams and essential oil roll-ons, has enabled us to become experts in how to formulate these kinds of products so you can definitely expect to see some innovative topical applications from us in the next few months,” Behrens said.
