The Haystack brand was founded in late December 2015 by Jeffray & Kathy by accident. Jeffray has been sober since January 20, 1993 and, after several car wrecks, he suffered from chronic back pain, shoulder and neck pain, and insomnia. While visiting Oregon Coast Cannabis, he jokingly asked Hannah and Andrew when will they make a strain for alcoholic/addicts? They replied: "Go home and google Charlotte's web strain." They did, and that started it all.
They spent the next year and a half perfecting the recipes and learning all they could about CBD and all the benefits from taking it. Within 2 years Jeffray lost 80 lbs, he was finely able to move and work out for longer periods of time without feeling chronic pain. They have been CBD advocates since Day 1 once they started.
Jeffray and Kathy spend half the year in Woodinville, Washington and Cannon Beach, Oregon—home of Haystack Rock—the inspiration for the name and vintage beach theme of branding. They have two wonderful sons, five dogs, and are passionate about dog rescuing in Puerto Vallarta, where they vacation and bring back severely abused dogs to new and loving homes each year, Kathy also donates wheels to special needs dogs too.
