When I stepped into the brand-new processing facility of Connoils in Big Bend, Wisconsin at the beginning of October, I was greeted by its founder and CEO, Stacy Peterson. I was struck by not only the beautiful stainless steel vats, knowledgeable staff, and enormous machinery, but also the heart and soul of all those at Connoils committed to producing the best CBD oil and other products.
It is clear that Connoils’ mission since its founding in 2007 is to heal, to help, to know that people’s pain and illness will be eased. That devotion was felt throughout the opening day tour. The 24,000-square-foot state-of-the-art facility includes cleanrooms, a warehouse, and an office space, all enabling Connoils to be a leading international supplement manufacturer, distributor and wholesale supplier of bulk oil ingredients for creating gels, capsules, pills, dried beverages, tablets, drinks, and more.
In order to honor Christopher Mann and the biodynamic teachings he shared with Stacy, Connoils' new line of products ‘AbbyChristopher’ is named for two people she loves and admires: her daughter Abby and her biodynamic mentor, Christopher. This Connoils brand of CBD oil was developed in partnership with some of Wisconsin’s most knowledgeable hemp growers to create this highest-quality product. AbbyChristopher may have two other people’s names on the label, but it is clear that Stacy’s incredible drive and heart are in every bottle.
To guarantee the quality of their oils, Connoils utilize a third-party testing facility to make sure the cannabinoids are intact and tested for uniform strength and potency. These lab tests are essential to ensure a pure and natural product, free from contaminants, making AbbyChristopher’s full-spectrum CBD oil products high quality and fully traceable. What is also truly “traceable” is the core essence of biodynamic principles at work to heal. Congratulations to Stacy and her whole team at Connoils on their incredible new facility!
