Meet the ladies of ˈärdər

ˈärdər botanicals is a mother/daughter owned canna-wellness brand, focusing on luxury products made exclusively for women. Co-Founders and Co-Owners, Heather and Nicole Lambert, operate their e-commerce business out of Augusta, GA. The company’s unique approach to the rising CBD market, combined with their focus on cannabis education, are great assets in bringing mainstream focus to legalization and reform efforts throughout the state.

Who is ˈärdər botanicals?

Heather – “We are a canna-wellness brand creating infused luxury products for women. Both my mom and myself are life long sufferers of endometriosis, something we sadly have in common with too many women. The pain, bloating, fatigue, etc. that accompany that condition, can range from an annoying nuisance on the best days, to totally debilitating on the worst. Searching for better treatment options is what led us to cannabis as a natural treatment alternative, and soon after we formulated our first product, Blood Magick Menstrual Relief Balm.

We chose CBD because well, we’re in Georgia, a non-legal state. Honestly, I don’t think either one of us expected the results we got. The difference in relief with CBD alone was astonishing. So much so, we made everybody we know try it, because we just couldn’t believe it ourselves. Family and friends, turned into friends of friends, and before we knew it, we had created this business that neither of us saw coming. We kept that same plan going forward with other products, choosing very intentional ingredients for very specific issues. It’s not that the products in our Blood Magick line won’t work for other ailments, or even that it won’t work on men; it’s just going to work best for period-related issues, because that’s what we created it for."

Ok so, you two work together, what’s that like?

Nicole – “We have been in the industry for 2 years now, not long by a lot of standards, but this has been the most rewarding experience of my life. After finding out personally how much CBD helped, we both just became obsessed with learning everything. Heather was fresh out of Georgia Southern University with a BS in Biology, and preparing to begin medical school when all of this started. She was home in Augusta for the summer, shadowing doctors at Medical College of Georgia, when things took a different and unexpected turn. At first I felt total panic, but that soon turned to relief when I realized that now we wouldn’t have to pay for medical school!

Seriously though, I’m so happy that we get to work together every day. She could do this without me, but I know I wouldn’t be doing it without her. We work extremely well off of each other, and Heather’s bio-medical background easily transitions into this business. At the end of the day, they both are about healing and helping people. I’m just extremely lucky that we are both passionate about the same thing, and at the same time.”

That is a bold move after so many years of preparation. Heather, can you tell us a little bit about that?
