SeaWeed Naturals, the new premium wellness brand from Ashlan and Philippe Cousteau, has launched a product line combining the “benefits of cannabis with the natural power of the oceans.”

Using restoratively farmed seaweeds, algae and kelp, SeaWeed Naturals claims to be the first brand to combine marine botanicals with full spectrum CBD/THC oils. The result is a collection of proprietary Ocean/Plant Botanical formulas created to renew “both our customers and our precious seas.”

As Global Ocean Ambassadors, the founders have dedicated their lives to conservation and sustainability; and their SeaWeed Naturals product line seeks to restore oceans through restorative farming techniques, charitable efforts, and the creation of sustainable blue jobs.

“Through our products, our values, and our charitable activities, SeaWeed Naturals is restoring oceans, providing sustainable jobs, growing the blue economy, restoring biodiversity, and combating climate change,” their website proclaims. “We know that seems like a lot, but it is amazing what we can achieve when we work together, hand in hand with the ocean, to enhance the health and wellness of ourselves and the planet.”

Ashlan is the principal founder of SeaWeed Naturals — a first-of-its-kind brand that she started in order to leverage the benefits of the cannabis plant with the powerful effects of marine botanicals like algae and seaweed.

Inspired by the legacy of his grandfather Jacques Cousteau, SeaWeed Naturals co-founder Philippe is a multi-Emmy Nominated TV host and producer as well as an author, speaker, and social entrepreneur.

The company’s initial product offering includes Topicals and Edibles, all produced with SeaWeed Naturals’ signature combination of cannabis and marine botanicals. The Topicals line of products includes something called Comfort Body Oil, which is made from coconut oil, vitamin E oil, jojoba, cannabis, kelp, omega-3, eucalyptus, tea tree, peppermint, lemon, and lavender.

The Edibles line includes gummies in various versions. The Low Tide Starfish gummies are recommended by the company as “a perfect way to relax at the end of a long day,” combining 10 mg of Indica cannabinoids with melatonin, along with their seaweed and sustainably sourced, vegan-friendly DHA omega-3 fatty acids.

As you might expect, there is a High Tide version as well, with many of the same benefits as Low Tide, but with “a slightly different mission. With 10 mg of Sativa cannabinoids, and no melatonin, High Tide will elevate your mood and help you feel focused.”
