Keynotes by Calyx Wellness
In botany, a calyx is the part of a plant that covers and protects blossoming petals so it can grow strong and healthy. We like to think we’re doing something similar for people.
Danielle Blair is the owner and founder of Calyx Wellness, a first of its kind retail concept in Canada that has since grown to two locations in Ontario with products found in hundreds of retailers worldwide.
It’s a personal mission for her. Prior to the opening of Calyx, Danielle Blair was exposed to cannabinoid therapy after witnessing her husband’s successful recovery from severe headaches caused by a brain tumor. Danielle’s partner Max had undergone surgery for the removal of the tumor and used CBD therapy to recover. Their shared experience inspired her to create Calyx, believing she could help entire communities achieve healthy, balanced lifestyles through natural CBD therapy.
A mogul in the CBD industry, Danielle has been featured in publications including The Globe & Mail, The Independent, and Vice. Over the past 15 years, Danielle has also been an active volunteer with several local and global not-for-profit organizations, lending a hand wherever needed – from educating at-risk teens on drug awareness to water filtration initiatives in Africa and food rescue programs. She has spent the past 9 years fundraising for Second Harvest, Canada’s largest food rescue program, and continues to support the organization through Calyx Wellness.
Calyx Wellness products are developed to harvest, maintain, and protect good health. We want to help communities heal and thrive through a healthy, balanced lifestyle aided by CBD therapy.
We source all our CBD products from non-GMO mature industrial hemp stalks that have been tested and certified.
We’ve developed a wide-ranging line of CBD products to help centre mind and body, including tinctures, sprays, capsules, and lotions. You can browse them online here or visit a partner store.
