When Grant Carstensen, founder of Citizen Ventures, returned from Iraq and ended his 10 years of active duty service in the United States Marine Corps, he was quickly diagnosed with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
As he began to adapt to life back at home, he witnessed fellow service members going through the same treatments after returning from combat. After experiencing the benefits of therapeutic medicine within his own treatment, Grant was compelled to share that same experience with his fellow veterans.
This desire led Grant to start Citizen as a way of supporting the brave men and women returning home from combat. Citizen CBD, his first venture, creates and distributes hemp-based products with a central mission to use every product sale to benefit veterans in need.
Citizen CBD is a premium manufacturer of high-quality CBD products as well as a driver of change in communities of people in need. We’re passionate about supporting veterans experiencing PTSD, cancer, and other serious health issues. We believe in bringing hope and support to the lives of those who have risked and sacrificed for us.
In the long run, our overriding goal is to partner with major charities and foundations who specialize in serving veterans and cancer patients, leading to a meaningful for-good growth strategy that is built right into the business.
We currently focus on CBD consumables in the form of E-Liquids, capsules, and tinctures. We place quality above all other priorities in the sourcing and manufacturing of every Citizen CBD product. This dedication to high-quality products positions us as a premium supplier of CBD products for consumers of all types.
