Currently available in sea salt chocolate chip flavor, with each piece containing 25 milligrams of CBD, the cookies are set to go to market on February 26; right now, they can be ordered on the company website. Next month, distribution of the crunchy treat will expand to brick and mortar channels in Colorado that include liquor stores, coffee shops, grocery establishment and gyms. And that’s not all. According to Rose, his team, which consists of a business partner and an intern from the University of Denver, are applying the final touches to deals “that would open us up for retail distribution beyond just Colorado for these cookies as well.” The ice cream line can be found at various Whole Food locations and other retailers in the state.
When asked why he chose to follow up his ice cream line with cookies, Rose said the mainstream snack favorite will help widen distribution of RoseBud’s offerings to more reason. There’s also another reason: “Frankly, traditional CBD edibles are boring and don’t taste good,” he admitted. “Anyone can put CBD in something, but that doesn’t mean it’s good. Making sure that the taste of our products is superior to everything else in the category has always been the most important thing for us.”
Down but certainly not out, Rose soon took a friend’s flippant suggestion that he start a THC ice cream company in Denver seriously. “I spent the next three and a half years working in professional kitchens making ice cream, taking various door to door sales roles, and making countless batches of THC ice cream while trying to secure investors and develop a business plan,” he related.

When RoseBud Ice Cream, a Denver-based CBD-infused frozen dessert brand, launched in late 2019, it was not under the most auspicious of circumstances. Not only was it a few months before the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, but founder Sam Rose was still working a day job he hated and found depressing. After undergoing what he characterized as a “stoned epiphany,” Rose, now 26, mustered up the courage to leave the corporate world behind and pursue his entrepreneurial dream full time. Despite some bumps, mostly caused by coronavirus restrictions and lockdowns, his startup has thrived. An example of this growth is evidenced by Rosebud’s expansion of its product line with the introduction of its latest delectable goody, CBD cookies.

And despite the curve ball tossed his way courtesy of the pandemic, Rose expresses gratitude for his present situation as well as optimism for the future.

In May 2019, Rose encountered another roadblock after investors he had courted for nearly two years pulled out of a deal. Resilient and determined, Rose pivoted to selling CBD ice cream at his business partner’s suggestion. Fortunately, it would prove to be the right decision in the end. “After doing my homework I realized that we could reach a lot more people by selling CBD-infused ice cream rather than THC,” explained Rose, who has been bootstrapping his brainchild since borrowing money from his father to help jumpstart RoseBud.
For Rose, the conceptualization and launch of his nascent business has been the apex of a long and lingering desire that began when he was a student at DePaul University. True to the uncertainties of life and business, hurdles appeared. “Before graduating college in 2016 I pitched an investor on starting a marijuana dispensary in Oregon for which I had spent two years developing a business plan,” he recalled. “The investor laughed me out of the meeting.”
“The pandemic has definitely hindered some aspects of the business, like not being able to do sampling for a couple months,” said Rose. “Running a business was always going to be stressful so if this means things can only get better when we return to some degree of normal that makes me excited. Even with the pandemic I know I am incredibly lucky because I’ve never been happier in my entire life and I owe it all to RoseBud. After all the years of trying to get here, it feels amazing to finally live this dream.”

CBD – short for cannabidiol – is a non-psychoactive compound of the cannabis plant, typically found in oil form. While it doesn’t have the “heightening” effect of the THC found in the whole plant, CBD research has revealed that the oil can benefit users both physically and mentally. It could potentially be used as a treatment for a number of conditions including arthritis, PTSD, depression, epilepsy, schizophrenia, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, and chronic pain. Researchers are also looking into CBD’s anti-cancer properties.
For many, the holiday season is about more than just food – it’s also about spending quality time with friends and family. But it can also be pretty stressful, so why not help make spirits bright with some homemade vegan treats infused with CBD?

CBD has a neurological impact on humans and has the potential to treat Alzheimer’s, Multiple Sclerosis, and Parkinson’s . The reason why it’s believed that CBD can help with neurological diseases is that it helps to protect nerve cells from degeneration.

One reason why marijuana is often used for chronic pain is partially due to its CBD content. CBD on its own can be just as impactful on pain without the hallucinogenic side effects. Studies have paired CBD with morphine and have shown CBD to be able to reduce the use of morphine in patients with acute pain. CBD also boasts the ability to fight tumors and helps to slow the progression of a variety of cancers. Specifically, CBD simply makes it harder for cancer cells to grow.
Officially known as cannabidiol, CBD is a compound found in the cannabis plant. Studies have shown that when extracted from the plant, CBD has an array of medical uses which is why the compound is currently popping up everywhere from dog treats to coffee shops throughout the US.
Typically when being used for culinary or consumption purposes, you’ll find CBD in oil form and can simply drop it into drinks, desserts, soups, or consume it straight! A good rule of thumb, as with any new supplement, is start with a dosage around 25mg and increasing or decreasing as you feel comfortable.
Step 3: Roll heaping tablespoons of mixture into round balls. Roll each bowl in cinnamon-sugar mixture.
Unlike marijuana, CBD is not a hallucinogenic, meaning it does not get you “high” (specifically the THC in marijuana is the compound that creates this feeling). This is the main reason why CBD is sold over the counter, even in areas where marijuana is not sold legally. CBD can be extracted from both marijuana and hemp plants, so it is easily found even where marijuana is not grown.

The human body’s endocannabinoid system has receptors that interact directly with cannabinoids, and specifically CBD. So even though CBD does not intoxicate humans, it does have many reactions with the endocannabinoid system, which is how we reap the medicinal impact. One of the first discoveries that made us notice CBD was its anticonvulsant effects, meaning it has the potential to help treat epilepsy and seizures.
