A little over six months after opening a CBD business, Ty Homan and Jake Schrom have learned a thing or two. Originally doing business as CBD HempDropz, they recently made a change.
“We changed our name to Kato CBD,” explains Schrom. “The owner of the CBD Hempdropz line was not allowing us to carry other brands. Now that we are able to control what brands we carry, we are also able to offer better pricing for our customers.”
The duo knows a little bit about taking care of customers: Homan has been a delivery driver for many years, and Schrom owns Hometown Fitness in Eagle Lake. Their reasons for delving into CBD are very personal.
“I started using CBD last year to help with my anxiety,” explains Schrom. “I didn’t feel like myself when I used a doctor recommended prescription, so I looked for something natural. CBD has changed my life. I shared with Ty how well CBD was working for me, and he started using CBD to help with his lower back pain. We both had found success in CBD and started to tell our friends and family members about CBD. After several of them had found what they were looking for in CBD, we knew that we would be able to help people experiencing similar ailments.”
Their best seller so far has been pain cream, but Schrom says the product offering is vast so educating the consumer is important.
“Everyone who walks in the door, is offered a sample of our products. While they are trying samples, we explain how CBD works, along with answering all of their questions. We offer many different CBD products with and without THC. Some of our products include pain creams, oils, water solubles, gummies, soft gels, and e-juice. We even carry coffee and bath bombs that have CBD in them,” he says.
He says all products are grown and manufactured in Colorado. The products are also third-party tested, with the test results available to view in the store.
