Cannanda exists to help people and animals achieve a full and happy life. We do this by creating unique multi-award-winning Natural Health Products with unrelenting quality, safety, and efficacy.
Through our global network that now touches four continents, our powerful and healing products are distributed worldwide to hundreds of thousands of people and animals--all while delivering a customer service experience second to none.
Every single day we help countless people or animal companions rise above physical and/or mental illness, and help them remember what a happy and healthy life is all about!
People: personal accountability, genuine, exceptional, and great citizenship. We embrace diversity and inclusivity.
Planet: respect for the environment, plants, and animals.
Health and Happiness: the foundations of a life worth living.
Integrity: we operate with honesty, openness, fairness, and strong ethical principles.
Innovative and forward-thinking people, processes, and products.
We've partnered with Ontario Bee Rescue to donate a portion of every CB2 Salve sold to help relocate at-risk bee colonies and save them from extermination.
We make small ongoing contributions to World Wildlife Fund (WWF) through our financial institution.
Through a combination of reusing packaging materials, recycling, and composting, our head office generates the equivalent of just 1 standard garbage bag of trash every month.
All office printing is done on 100% post-consumer recycled paper.
We consciously eliminate excessive packaging for our products.
We intentionally choose packaging that can be reused and/or recycled.
Our head office is working towards soon being 100% powered by renewable energy and 0% fossil fuels (estimated by end of 2022)
