Ohio-based Sapphire Essentials announced today the full launch of their unique CBD product line, designed specifically to meet the needs of active adults and seniors. Sapphire products are made in the USA and use a proprietary & organically-grown hemp plant which delivers a broad spectrum, phytocannabinoid-rich and 100% THC-free CBD complex.

Sapphire Essentials was founded by nationally recognized healthy aging expert Dr. Jim Collins. As a Gerontologist focused on wellness and health care for seniors and older Americans, his 30-year plus career has spanned everything from Geropsychiatry to home health regimens for active seniors.

“I have been passionate about helping older and aging Americans. Members of this community, often overlooked by both traditional and holistic medicine, struggles daily with numerous physical and emotional health conditions. But they should not have to,” said Collins. With a burgeoning marketplace full of hemp-based “cures,” Collins differentiates his line. “While many CBD supplements are created with industrial hemp, and produce lower amounts of CBD, their end crop doesn’t yield the best medicinal outcome. We cultivate a proprietary strain of hemp specifically bred for the most medicinally concentrated cannabinoid strains of medical cannabis—without causing a drug high. You enjoy the benefits without the worry.”

Sapphire Essentials stands by their quality and can prove the standards they set make a difference. That starts with the type of cannabis used to make their products. Grown in the United States, their hemp is fully licensed and registered with the Colorado State Department of Agriculture. It is Non-GMO, GMP compliant, eco-friendly, solvent-free, lab tested and grown without pesticides. But Dr. Collins goes even further, asking those interested to do their homework, research the possible benefits of CBD, and read results on Sapphire Essentials’ website from third party testing of his products.

Dr. Collins also enlisted the help of another powerful voice in medicine. Dr. Leonard Wisneski, MD, has extensive knowledge and interest in the benefits of CBD and therapeutic applications involving the endocannabinoid system. With thirty years in the clinical practice of endocrinology, Dr. Wisneski is a recognized leader globally in the field of integrative and whole person health. His role at Sapphire Essentials is as a medical and scientific advisor.

“From my work with NIH, fellowships, time as an adjunct professor, and work with patients, I can easily marry the thought processes and results of cutting-edge research with that of the traditional doctor-patient experience. So, I understand how doctors treat aging issues and where science can go to do even more. I am proud to partner with Sapphire Essentials to help the aging community explore the possibilities for living a better life,” said Dr. Wisneski.

Every Sapphire Essentials product is fully lab tested and certified. Certificates of testing and information can be found on our website at We are proud to offer consumer and wholesale partnerships on the website as well.
