We believe in balance over burnout, the permission to leisure, and that chill is a form of wellness. We do one thing and we do it well: high quality, handcrafted plant powered gumdrops.
From Our Founder, Shaina Kerrigan
It hit me at 36. I was a career-driven mom of two, feeling the pressure to work more, do more, and be more. Trying to juggle it all left me burnt out, sleep deprived, and unable to give myself the permission to slow down. I knew I needed to find a better solution to take the edge off, and find some much needed balance. Starting with a new life mantra that everyone deserved to chill, Molly J. was born.
A better way to relax
After discovering CBD to be a healthy source of relief, I began spreading the word to other women in Marin, California. We started hosting in-home tupperware-style parties that always led me to the same realization:
We were in desperate need of a natural alternative to take the edge off.
Education, above all else, was how Molly J. got started. As we built momentum, it was clear that CBD’s anti-anxiety, anti-inflammation, and deep sleep benefits created genuine excitement and interest. Together, with input from our party attendees, we landed on an idea: Create a beautifully packaged CBD edible that feels like a treat and special ritual at the end of a long day.
Quality is Everything
From the start, we knew that quality needed to be the foundation of our small batch gumdrops, so we meticulously vetted over twenty CBD cultivators and manufacturers to find the absolute best fit. We spent almost a year developing our own proprietary gumdrop recipe and another few months perfecting the gift-worthy packaging, all in an effort to create a product to be proud of.
We’re Just Getting Started
In January 2020, Molly J. debuted our very first CBD gumdrop – the Chill formula in Berry flavor – to rave reviews. We now have three proprietary formulas to help with Chill, Sleep, and Hangovers, eight mouthwatering flavors, two dosage levels, and three different packaging options to find the perfect fit. We launched our loyal Molly J. Club — a growing community of VIPs who receive monthly doses of chill along with special perks and gifts straight from our team. On our mission to replace burnout with balance, we’re so proud of how far we’ve come and so energized for the road ahead. As always, thanks for supporting us.
