Purpl Pro from Purpl Scientific

Purpl PRO is a pocket-sized cannabis potency application that is crazy accurate, totally affordable (under $1500) and easy to use.

The Purpl PRO allows users to conduct limitless THC and CBD tests. The compact device uses the same technology used in the pharmaceutical industry, where accuracy is paramount. The Purpl PRO connects to a user’s smartphone and creates a robust potency testing system in the palm of the hand, with lab-accurate results in under ten seconds.

“We created this device so it can be used by anyone in the hemp and cannabis ecosystem, including growers, processors, distributors and retailers,” Chad Lieber, President of Purpl Scientific, said. “In addition to unsurpassed accuracy, we also kept the unit affordable, so that having insight into any plant’s potency is simple, fast, and inexpensive.”

Unlike traditional testing methods, which are expensive and take days to obtain results, the Purpl PRO provides limitless tests with results in under 10-seconds. As one user said, “the unit paid for itself within the first week of using it.”

Restart CBD

Some of the finest quality CBD in America is coming from a company founded by two sisters in Austin, Texas. Restart is the brainchild of Shayda + Sydney Torbai after one of the sisters was trying to recover from an auto accident.

During that time, they encountered the frustration of finding quality organic hemp products from trusted suppliers. And as a family of athletes and living in Texas, they needed a legal product with zero THC. Realizing very few pure products existed in this market, they decided to create their own.

After months of research and development, RESTART CBD was born.

The company's Signature Product Line (Replenish, Recover, Relax and Repair) is derived from organically grown industrial hemp with CO2 extraction, 3rd party lab testing for quality, and organic ingredients.
