About Us

Your Wellness Partner

Tessera Naturals’ mission is to educate and promote a healthy lifestyle that includes primarily organic unprocessed food, regular exercise, and holistic medicine whenever possible. We are strong advocates of using whole plant supplements to help enhance your overall well-being.

Why CBD Oil?

Our bodies are self-healing organisms. We are brilliantly equipped with natural mechanisms that kill toxic cells, fight infectious agents, repair damaged proteins, keep our coronary arteries open and naturally fight the aging process.

Some preliminary evidence suggests that natural CBD extracts might support many or all of these functions.

The Early Days

Initially founded by Jason and Olga Cohen in 2018, Tessera Naturals was formed after the couple discovered the benefits of CBD earlier that year, but experienced huge inconsistencies with various products providing radically different results.

The Cohens sought to develop their own line of products as clean as they are reliable, and after many months of research and development, and partnering with the industry’s leading scientists and product formulators… Tessera Naturals was born!

Passing the Torch

As the years went by and their business grew, the Cohens decided to leave their company in the capable hands of Joe Phillips.

Phillips, a U.S. Navy veteran with a BS in Chemical Engineering, offers expertise and experience that dwarfs most CBD vendors.

The entrepreneur spent years in pharmaceutical process development while also running several small businesses since 2009. During his tenure in pharmaceuticals, Phillips researched CBD’s many potential benefits.

Same Mission, New Approach

Joe, an avid outdoorsman, sees nature as a source of fun and a largely unexplored frontier of hidden therapeutic benefits.

As an arthritis patient, Phillips knows the limiting effects firsthand and sees CBD as a possible solution.

But Joe’s motivation isn’t just to reduce his discomfort and support general wellness. Other members of his family deal with daily issues that may be manageable with CBD.

His wife, Jenny – whom he has been happily married to for ten years – deals with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), while his eight-year-old son, Hank, lives with ADHD. Joe also has an uncle with multiple sclerosis (MS).

Phillips hopes that studies can soon irrefutably prove CBD’s effectiveness against arthritis, ADHD, MS, stress, and more with some preliminary evidence behind him.

Until then, Joe continues Tessera Naturals’ mission to provide organically-grown, affordable, safe CBD.

Why We’re Here

Tessera Naturals’ mission seeks to address a serious problem – not all CBD is created equal.

When the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) first looked at CBD products, they came to a horrifying conclusion. Nearly 70% of the extracts contained more or less CBD than advertised on their labels.

Some products carried more than 0.3% THC – the federal legal limit before cannabis goes from “hemp” to “marijuana” (both arbitrary and non-scientific terms referring to the same plant, Cannabis sativa L.).

Cannabis’ largely unregulated status means it’s easy for unscrupulous vendors to grow substandard hemp. Consequently, customers risk getting more than just CBD.

Synthetic pesticides and herbicides, chemical fertilizers, heavy metals, microbes, and fungi all compromise your CBD’s quality, safety, and effectiveness.

“Many people are seeking wellness and balance in their lives or are struggling with ailments that cause them stress. We don’t want to add to that stress with uncertainty and mistrust for the products they are purchasing.”

What does Tessera mean?

The word tessera refers to a small block of stone or glass used in the creation of a mosaic. Much like a mosaic, the cannabis plant is comprised of at least 113 known cannabinoids, as well as terpenes, flavonoids, amino acids and other naturally occurring compounds. These compounds synergistically work together to produce a range of benefits which is greater than the sum of its individual parts… similar to a beautiful mosaic mural created from small individual tiles of different shapes and colors.
