Kendra Mark, the founder of 2Rise Naturals, is on a mission to empower people to reconnect to their ability to heal and optimize, and CBD is just the beginning.
“Most of us have strayed way too far away from their own inherent ability to heal using natural methods. We’ve made it difficult, not because it is, because we’ve become lazy and disconnected from ourselves and from nature. The human body is an incredibly resilient and intelligent organism. Sometimes healing is as simple as getting quiet and trusting that you already know what to do.” – Kendra
Born in sunny California to a yogi, health nut, interior designer mother, and a straight shooter, big-hearted, businessman father, Kendra grew up in an environment that cultivated her decision to start a wellness company.
Kendra went to school for communications and PR and later transferred to a specialized 4-year program in energy medicine and somatic psychology. She’s since dove head first into all aspects of alternative medicine including nutrition, herbology, product formulation, genetics, and biohacking.
When she isn’t playing girl boss, Kendra can be found sitting at her tea table, hiking the beautiful red rocks of Sedona, or sweating it out in her infrared sauna. She claims that these activities are crucial to her staying on her game during the week.
Kendra launched 2Rise Naturals in 2016, making all of her products by hand in a commercial kitchen. After over a year of palate-numbing formulation testing with her first product, the Full Spectrum Hemp Tincture, Kendra publicly launched her company and hasn’t stopped creating and testing future recipes since then.
“The one thing that separates us from the ocean of CBD companies is our commitment to using pure, high-quality raw ingredients in all of our products. We don’t mess around with this. I can’t even tell you how long it took me to find a source of 100% coconut derived MCT oil that I could approve of. I don’t know if my CBD is better than the next guy’s. But I do know that I have a crazy quality control obsession and that is what makes customers continue to support our brand.” – Kendra
