Los Altos Town Crier Spotlight
The origin story of Dr. Dabbs Everyday CBD was recently profiled by the Los Altos Town Crier. It’s how Cory and Greg created a quality and healthy sustainable solution from their personal lives that they wanted to share with others at scale. What started out as friendship became an opportunity for others to benefit from as well.
How Greg and Cory Met
Los Altos chiropractor Gregory Dabb’s passion for his patients and practice at Better Life Chiropractic Center left him believing he had found his true calling.
And then he met Cory Schwaderer.
Schwaderer, a patient of Dabb’s, had undiagnosed Lyme disease that metastasized into spinal meningitis. He had been in the hospital for weeks at a time and was going to the hospital for immunotherapy daily when a doctor told him about cannabidiol (CBD) products. Schwaderer’s doctor said research showed that CBD could help his pain. It did – and at a time when CBD products weren’t widely available, largely because people weren’t educated on the ingredients in CBD, which contains no THC, the psychoactive component in cannabis.
Although Schwaderer was skeptical of chiropractic treatment, he made an appointment with Dabb at his brother’s urging. “(Dabb) laughed at me when I met him and told me, ‘You’ll be off that cane when you leave the office today.’ I didn’t take it very well.”
Schwaderer did walk out without assistance, and he and Dabb forged a friendship.
Using CBD products changed his life, so Schwaderer approached Dabb a few years later with a proposal to launch a business together that was people-oriented and offered simple products.
The result of their partnership: Dr. Dabb’s Everyday CBD products.
“People are looking for therapeutic relief, and that’s why we have just the two items,” Schwaderer said. “We just wanted strong medication that works in two simple forms.”
Although anyone can use CBD for relief in areas such as sleep, physical recovery and anxiety, Dabb said, it’s especially helpful to seniors who need alternative pain mitigation options after taking nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs their entire lives.
“They have stomach ulcers, or kidney issues, or small intestine issues,” Dabb said. “(They say), ‘My doctor says I can’t take Tylenol anymore, I can’t take Advil anymore. … I think a lot of seniors, for health reasons, are being forced to find something without side effects.”
What's Behind Dr. Dabb's Everyday CBD
Dabb was interested in hemp long before he met Schwaderer. But discovering its oil extracts could be used to replace narcotics his patients relied on piqued his interest.
Hemp, a “cousin plant” of marijuana, does not contain the THC required to alter someone’s brain functions. Rather, it positively affects the body, Dabb noted.
“Your body has cannabinoid receptors in its central and peripheral nervous systems,” he said. “That is what the CBD binds to. So it’s not like you’re taking something that affects you in some way. It’s part of your body’s own natural regulatory system. It literally drives homeostasis.”
After studying the science, Dabb and Schwaderer recommended a therapeutic dose of 1,000 mg. They relied on a government study about the benefits of CBD, information on where the line’s hemp is sourced from organically in Colorado and the lab results of each lot, produced and tested by an in-house third party – available for customers to check on the bottom of each product.
