President of Buzzed Bee Balm

Hello, my name is Jacob Bowman. My mother is the genius behind Buzzed Bee Balm and all of our products we have. In 2008 while I was in the Army my brother and I decided to talk to my mother about switching to medical cannabis. At the same time her doctor was telling her to seek “alternative” solutions. As she went down that road she bought several different balms and eventually decided to start making her own. A couple years later I was Honorably Discharged from the Army and started to go to school in order to further my medical career that I started in the military. While attending school I ran into Chip Bryant, he and I served together on two deployments in 2008 and 2009. In 2008 I was the medic that rendered aid to him after he was shot by the enemy. Fast forward to 2011, Chip and I were starting to come up with some business ideas of our own and even formed our first company together, JC Sales. As life would have it things didn’t quite work out for JC Sales and we both started to pursue different ventures while still talking and working on new ideas. In 2019 I was hired as a farm hand on a hemp farm in Oregon and that is when things began to take off. While my mom was still making Buzzed Bee Balm in her kitchen she was using recreational bud to make it, so we switched to Hemp derived RSO (Rick Simpson Oil). After a few of our friends and family tried it we decided it was time to take this out of the kitchen. We formed our LLC and in 2020 we brought on my brother Ryan Bowman to help and here we are today. Bringing you quality handmade Balms and CBD Honey to help with any of your ailments that we can. While my mother is no longer making the products she is still a huge part of what we do, we hope to carry on her legacy of, as she says it, “helping the broke and broken”. We know you have many options when it comes to CBD products and we thank you for choosing Buzzed Bee Balm. Just know that when you buy a Buzzed Bee product you are buying not only balm or honey, you are buying love and gratitude as well. Thank you again for choosing us and we hope that we can help take the edge off or just brighten your day in some way. 

Blessings

I am a small-town guy from Chapel Hill, TX who moved away to see what else the world had to offer. After living in Austin, TX and unsuccessfully attempting college, I joined the Army to serve my country. During my time in Tacoma, WA at 2nd Ranger Battalion I met Jacob Bowman. As my platoon medic, he saved my life after I was shot twice in my right leg while on mission in Iraq in 2008. We stayed in contact after we got out and both attended Pierce College together. It’s pretty easy to have a strong bond with someone who had their hand literally inside your leg to stop the bleeding lol. I got to know his family well and spent time with them over the years, and that’s how I came to know about Buzzed Bee Balm. I remember Jenny, Jacob’s mom, making the first batches of it and how wonderful it smelled and how amazingly it worked. Fast forward ten years, now I live in Houston, TX with my wife Melissa and our four busy boys Canaan, Jace, Bodhi and Soren. We love the philosophy behind the Buzzed Bee Brand and are so happy to see how its helped so many people over the years. I am honored and blessed to be a part of this company and so excited knowing that we are producing sustainable, reliable, effective alternatives that will continue helping people for years to come.

Warm Wishes

Aloha,
My name is Ryan Bowman. My mother Jennifer Davis is the magical woman behind Buzzed Bee Balm. Her journey through life gave her so many talents and gifts. One of which is the drive to help others and heal people. While coping with debilitating pain and injuries from an accident that brought about enhance symptoms from her Chiari Malformation, she developed a product that my brother Jacob and I felt needed to be shared with the public. So, we started Buzzed Bee Balm and have been actively building a business and brand ever since.
In 2007 I was a young Massage Therapist just embarking on a journey around the globe. In November of 2009 I decided I needed to get out of Washington and find myself. I spent the next 6 years traveling the world pursuing life and its many lessons. During this time, I found my wonderful life partner Julie (Julez) Bowman. She brought about an urge to settle down, so we did so in Bellingham, Washington in order to be close to family. Now Julez and I are planting roots and starting our family. Building Buzzed Bee Balm with a sense of appreciation for others and a quality that can be trusted. My experience enables me to see the benefits from what my mother has created. It is my brother and I’s goal to build this product line into a successful brand while also helping communities and programs that align with our mission of helping others. This is the legacy our mother showed us, and this is the legacy of Buzzed Bee Balm. I look forward to building this legacy with you and making our communities, our lives and our world a better place.
Thank you for your time in reading this and checking out our webpage. I encourage you to try our product as it is truly made with the intent of helping you in as many ways as we can. We intend to help far beyond skin deep.

Sincerely
Ryan Bowman
Marketing Director of Buzzed Bee Balm
