Founders Alex Vargas and Joe Stone met through mutual interests and instantly connected. They had matching values, entrepreneurial prowess, both veterans and each craved a higher purpose in their lives. They had always felt a deep calling to be of service, but like so many people in today’s fast-paced society, they were suffering from career fatigue and stress. Having both heard the buzz around CBD – a dialogue about the hemp industry began. Neither had tried the products themselves but soon after their conversation, they both tried CBD and were amazed at the immediate difference it made in their lives. They realized this was the opportunity to serve they’d been seeking.At this point they enlisted the help of Mirta Vargas, Alex’s wife, a Doctor of Pharmacy. Originally a CBD skeptic, Mirta’s view changed when she used CBD for relief of knee soreness. To her surprise, the relief was immediate. After relentlessly researching more information about the CBD industry, Mirta decided to join Opulent as co-founder and Chief Product Officer. Since its inception, the company has integrated the expertise of people involved in every step of manufacturing CBD products: hemp farmers, manufacturers, scientists, doctors, third-party testing labs, and like-minded professionals. They knew this was the beginning of something truly special. Something that would create the change the founders and their families wanted to see in the industry. Opulent Organics started with the vision of bringing the science of CBD to the forefront of a widely unregulated industry. This dream became a reality when co-founders Alex Vargas, Joe Stone, and Dr. Mirta Vargas dedicated themselves to creating a CBD brand of substance. They endeavored to create something measured by more than revenue. Opulent Organics was born to enrich lives and CREATE the gold standard for how to buy CBD.
