The Barlean’s CBD origin story starts back in the 1970s, and it’s a little fishy.
Literally – Dave Barlean worked as a fisherman! An advocate of sustainability, Dave established a revolutionary fishing method to help the creature he loved most.
This method effectively separated fish species for commercial purposes from aquatic endangered species.
Dave also perfected the promise he made to his customers – to provide only the freshest fish possible – with the help of his wife, Barb Barlean.
While raising their four children, Barb Barlean utilized her operational flair when it came to the family business. Located in Washington, Barb created a state-wide transportation system for Dave’s harvested salmon that ensured quick deliveries and optimal freshness.
And it would be their son who would not only join the family business, but push it forward – by discovering an innovative way to make flaxseed oil.
