In December of 2017, Alison and Scott started making CBD-infused bath bombs as holiday gifts for friends and family members. Using oil from their cousin’s farm in Woodburn, OR, they crafted a recipe that wouldn’t stain the tub or leave an oily residue on the skin. Thinking it would be a fun way to create art together and give quirky gifts to those they love, they didn’t expect the incredibly positive impact CBD bath bombs would have on those friends and family. Almost immediately, they were bombarded with requests to make, and sell, more. Friends shared that what was a simple holiday gift had allowed some of them to be pain-free for the first time in years, or to sleep through the night.
What began as a way to share a love of crafting has now turned into a way to give people relief from pain and sleep issues, as well as amazing bath and beauty products, all of which are infused with a whole plant full spectrum hemp oil, grown organically and processed in a GMP-compliant facility on our cousin’s farm.
Two years later, Cherry River has become a phenomena. The company has been featured in Broccoli Magazine, won the Entrepreneur Pitch Fest at Clark College, pitched to Shark Tank producers, and are sponsors for the 2019 Waterfront Blues Festival, the first CBD company approved to do so.
Cherry River was named for the cherries that grow in the beautiful city in which Scott and Alison have planted their roots, and the Columbia River that snakes through the Gorge. Due to their organic products and carefully handcrafted items, Cherry River promises its customers the highest quality product and a luxurious bath experience at an affordable price.
