After Son’s Successful CBD Treatment, Mother Launches CBD Product Line

Roxanne Benton, owner of Patriot Botanicals, launched her line of hemp cannabidiol oil (CBD) drops after she was inspired by her son’s positive reaction to CBD, which has helped to control his ADHD and Tourette’s.

A few years ago, her teenage son Bevan was diagnosed with ADHD and Tourette’s Syndrome. Roxanne initially used essential oils to help relieve his symptoms, which inspired her to learn about holistic healing.  She now has a store that sells tools and supplies to people in the aromatherapy industry.

Having used essential oils in her own health and wellness routines for over six years, she eventually met a man named John Taylor, who  informed her about a CBD project he was working on in Kentucky. The project utilized hemp that is grown under a Federal Pilot Program, is flavored with natural CO2 extracts, is pesticide-free and is federally legal throughout the U.S., as per the Farm Bill of 2014.

Naturally, Roxanne trusted her new friend John and decided to launch her own company reselling his product, and named it Patriot Botanicals.

“I named my company Patriot Botanicals because it harkens back to our country’s positive history with hemp,” she said.

“I already had a small audience, and they were thirsty for knowledge about how this misunderstood plant – this natural product – could help so many with widely varied issues. So, I did what I do best – dug into research and started offering my own brand of Patriot Botanicals CBD oil, to my customers.”

CBD is derived from cannabinoids, which is one of a class of diverse chemical compounds that acts on cannabinoid receptors in cells that alter neurotransmitter release in the brain. Cannabinoids are the natural compounds found in cannabis and they react to the human body’s endocannabinoid system.

Roxanne hadn’t mentioned to Bevan’s therapist that he was taking CBD until he remarked to her that Bevan was behaving differently.

“I told him about the whole story about my friend, the manufacturer of CBD in Kentucky and how we gave it to Bevan. His therapist said to ‘keep it up!’ ” says Roxanne, who was so thrilled with Bevan’s progress. Bevan is now 15 and thriving. He and his twin sister both play Lacrosse, and Roxanne’s whole family uses CBD on a daily basis.

These days, Roxanne is using her son’s personal experience to help people, especially other moms, realize that CBD is neither a snake oil nor a cure-all. “As I understand it, CBD mainly helps bring our bodies back to homeostasis, so our bodies can work more efficiently,” she said.

Patriot Botanicals has a walk-in shop located at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, however, most customers prefer to order online. PB offers speedy, free, same or next day shipping in the Continental US. CBD from industrial hemp is federally legal to ship to all 50 states (due to the 2014 Farm Bill) as it contains .03 percent THC or less.

Says Roxanne, “There’s less than a Horton Hears A Who speck of THC in our hemp drops. You’d have a greater chance of getting high at a  perfume counter at Macy’s.”
