We are living in the age of anxiety
Anxiety is one of the most common mental illnesses in the US. Approximately 18% of Americans are diagnosed annually with anxiety, and many are turning to CBD, hemp and good clean food to help manage their symptoms.
Yet finding the right CBD solution can be challenging, and with so many options, it can often lead to more anxiety for the consumer.
Anxiety relief in familiar snacks
A Boring Life manufactures and distributes the world’s finest CBD infused products, as well as specialty CBD-free honey products . A Boring Life nuts and honeys are made by hand in small batches with the finest ingredients and broad spectrum CBD extract derived from select hemp cultivators in the USA. We are proud to grow some of the ingredients on our farm in Boring, Oregon, as well as cultivate bees that make truly remarkable raw honey.
All of our products are made by our resident expert Chef Jen Johnson, previous Chef to President Obama, the Getty Family and Chez Panisse. Each hand crafted product is designed to promote wellness and to offer consumers a fast form of relief for their anxiety to improve overall wellness.
Organic full spectrum CBD/hemp family of products
Our products are organically cultivated & non-GMO. We offer vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free and sugar-free options. We offer an authentic, transparent label with simple, thoughtfully sourced ingredients and organic CBD hemp extract that delivers natural relief for a variety of problems.
Nuts are a great source of protein and Omega 3's — which assist in bodily absorption of cannabinoids into your own endocannabinoid system. Simply put, food is health. Our Boring Nuts provide an easy and convenient way to get protein, omega 3's and the benefits of hemp.
Introducing Our Newest Product Line: Raw Honey Infused with Fruits and Nuts
Founder Serafina Palandech is from the small country of Montenegro, on the Baltic Sea. In Montenegro, her family preserves fruits and nuts in honey, a practice that has been done for centuries. Serafina wanted to bring this to the U.S. and create new and interesting taste profiles.
Stores are going nuts for our newest offering: Raw Honey Infused with Fruits and Nuts. On our farm, we keep bees and harvest the raw honey to make this beautiful and delicious honey that is infused with organic nuts, dried fruits, spices and herbs. We love bees, and in fact, our beekeeper tends to over 800 hives locally. All of our honey is raw and unfiltered, so it contains beneficial pollen and propolis. There are absolutely no additives.
A Boring Life Honey is a delicious appetizer when on a charcuterie plate with meats, cheeses, and nuts. It can also be used at breakfast time, served over oatmeal, yogurt or toast. Introduced at the Fancy Food Show in San Francisco, our latest products are launching into major distributors and retailers across the country.

Use of Funds
Chef Jen Johnson and Serafina Palandech founded A Boring Life in August 2018 after successfully exiting Hip Chick Farms, an organic chicken company that the pair started five years prior and quickly grew to national distribution within four years of launch. The family moved to the town of Boring, Oregon, a rural agricultural community outside of Portland. They moved to a farm where they started farming lavender.
Chef Jen had started taking hemp extract for pain relief and focus six months prior. She was taken with the positive and natural effects of Hemp Extract – a remedy that offered so many benefits without any negative side effects, so she decided to start cooking with it. Chef Jen is a classically trained chef, having cooked previously for 10 years at Chez Panisse with Alice Waters and for 16 years for the prestigious Getty Family in San Francisco, as well as President Obama, prior to starting Hip Chick Farms.
A few short months after exiting the prior organic food company, the pair created A Boring Life opening the next chapter on their culinary and brand building adventure. Having found a more relaxed way to live, Chef Jen wanted to share her extraordinary new snacks to highlight this phenomenal ingredient and super food – Hemp Extract.
