Relax. Realign. Recharge. This week we sat down with Andrea Barrera the founder of Gracious Om, a woman owned and operated company focused on the natural and organic approaches to self-care and beauty.
Their Hemp CBD infused products are made from organic, sustainably grown, Non GMO Hemp that is cultivated by expert manufactures. All of their products are crafted with the highest standards and purest ingredients, they are sustainable, cruelty free and eco-friendly. It’s all about self-love and good energy!
We recommend you check out the Wild Heart Hemp CBD mask, a blend of rose clay, beetroot and rose hip, that will relax and replenish your skin. We also love the Rose Tea Cream that helps soothe body pains and moisturizes at the same time.
How did you come up with the idea/concept for Gracious Om? What were you doing before?
Prior to Gracious Om, my career was in mental health and neuroscience. I launched Gracious Om after realizing that there were no products using the healing properties of cannabinoids in daily skincare. Most topicals I found on the market focused on the anti-inflammatory benefits of CBD and stopped there. I wanted to create a line of products that was going to change the way we looked at skincare and serve as a reminder to practice self-care with products that are clean, green and free from toxins.
What do people like most about your product? How does it make them feel?
People like that Gracious Om products are natural, vegan and formulated with the highest quality ingredients. What they like the most, is that the formulations include hemp derived CBD. It’s amazing to hear the feedback and testimonials from our customers including how great it makes them feel and how it helps them with pain to acne to eczema!
What are you most popular products? Where can you buy https://www.graciousom.com/new-productsGracious Om products?

There are many projects in the works that will be revealed in the upcoming months! Gracious Om is expanding into more retails stores and making it’s way outside of the US as well! Our skincare line is also growing and new products are making an appearance soon!
What were some of the things that you learned unexpectedly since starting Gracious Om? Have there been any challenges that you’ve had to overcome?
I learned a lot about running a business and the challenges that come with being in the cannabis industry. Although Hemp derived CBD is legal, there are a lot of hurdles that have to be overcome as a company grows and expands.
If you could invite three people, (dead or alive), to a dinner party, who would you invite and why?
It is hard to narrow a list down to 3 because there are so many amazing and inspiring people I would love to have the opportunity to get to know! I would love to have dinner with Nikola Tesla and be able to pick his brain! Oprah Winfrey is another inspiring person I would love to meet and finally I would love to have dinner with my Grandma again. These are all individuals I admire very much!
Where are you located? What’s the weed scene like there?
Gracious Om is located in sunny SoCal! The weed scene is very much alive and continues to make a presence despite the stigma.
