Why we started Onáya...

Our founders are not your average CBD company. They are licensed healers, herbalists, and clinicians with over 30 years’ of combined experience.  They have infused Onaya with their extensive plant knowledge acquired from around the world during their plant explorations and from their love of nature. 

Hemp started out as an experiment for them at their clinic when their patients started asking them for a clean source of CBD tinctures.  They quickly realized how difficult it was to find a reliable and trustworthy source that stands behind what they do.  This led them to partner with a local organic farm and start their own brand called Hummingbird Botanicals.  As their company grew, they decided to change their name to ONAYA. 

Our founders have dedicated their lives to diving deeper into the medicinal properties of plants, to empowering others to be their best selves, and to bringing awareness to the importance of nature for our survival. They have realized that when you feel good, you make better choices for yourself and others. As Onaya continues to grow we look forward to the exciting new herbal blends that are in the works.

"We want to be present in the world and make a positive change. We want to see our Planet restored to balance, our Plants thriving with clean air and water, and People empowered through health and wellness", Joaquina and Bradley

Our three core truths that we hold close to our hearts are:

We love the Planet, Plants, and People!

Core Value 1: Plants

We asked ourselves, as healers and herbalists, how could we use our knowledge and skills to help transform the world? Hemp was the answer. We strongly believe that hemp is a plant that has the power to positively impact our lives and our planet.  

Plants are an essential part of our lives. We use them in our practice and in our lives for every ailment we have. They have truly transformed us on so many levels and we hope that you can begin to experience some of this healing plant goodness as well.


Core Value 2: Planet

Most people agree that our planet is in trouble. Between Climate Change and pollution, the globe is becoming less hospitable to life. Hemp can help change this paradigm. This extraordinary plant is fast growing, produces lots of oxygen, and sequesters carbon. How? Hemp is a renewable resource in every sense of the word. It can be used for textiles, paper, animal feed, food for people (hemp seed), rope, building materials (hempcrete), and it can even be used to make biodegradable plastics.

Since we only use the finest hemp flower to make our CBD Oil, the rest of the plant is used for these other purposes. Hemp can change the nature of how we coexist on the planet. Please support the use of Hemp to change the world and to feel better.  


Core Value 3: People

People in modern times are overworked and stressed. As a species we have lost our connection to our environment and have lost our connection to ourselves and each other. We have an intrinsic need for nourishment, relaxation, and connection.

The Endocannabonoid system (ECS) helps the body adapt to stress in a positive way. Some people have even called CBD the “great adaptogen”. Adaptogens are herbs that help the body adapt to stress in a healthy manner. This alone can help with the relaxation necessary to deal with the stress provided by modern life.

Let’s be honest, CBD can’t directly help you feel more connection to the planet or other people. However, it can help you feel healthier and less stressed. This does, allow for the exploration of connection and creativity. Re-member connection!
