It was on a hike that Gabe Kennedy and Hudson Gaines-Ross discovered a shared life experience - both had undergone conventional surgeries after traumatic spinal injuries. As is common, both had been prescribed traditional pharmaceuticals that left them feeling dissociated, irritable and generally unwell. Disillusioned, they turned away from conventional western medicine and found healing and wholeness on a plant-based path to recovery, lifted by the power in plants along with eastern and western herbs. Amazed and inspired to share nature’s brilliance, the two founded Plant People.
For Gabe, a trained chef, this was an evolution in his embrace of alternative medicine (from a household of healers, his parents are acupuncturists and herbalists) and for Hudson, this would be his second plant-based venture. Inspired, the two now understood that to heal their communities was infinitely possible and utterly necessary mission. Plant People is a philosophy. Alongside its high quality and innovative products, the company exists to empower people in making alternative and altogether more positive choices when it comes to healing the body and mind.
In sourcing the best plant genetics, extraction methods and delivery systems, Plant People became a reality.
With the help of alternative medicine doctors and scientists, we tirelessly experiment with herbs, hemp strains and botanicals, discovering and sharing powerful, effective and innovative formulas.
