Who is Sleepy Bear? What is our story?

Our Story: Proudly veteran and family-owned and operated. Sleepy Bear was founded by former army ranger, Kyle Paradiso. Kyle has spent the last few years working at the forefront of veteran issues. After suffering a severe spinal cord injury during service in 2016, Kyle was medically retired and returned to his alma mater, The Citadel Military College of South Carolina as a veteran service coordinator. His personal injury led him to look towards cannabis research as a pain management alternative and shortly after Kyle placed his professional research focus on the use of THC and CBD for medical interventions in lieu of opioids in the veteran population. During his daily work with veterans, Kyle identified a systemic issue in the veteran community’s general outlook toward cannabis treatment.

Kyle went on to spend years working to break the stigma surrounding veteran cannabis usage while promoting the positive aspects of cannabis to help heal the veteran community. After years of working with veteran nonprofit organizations and educational institutions nationwide, Kyle turned his passion and heart toward creating Sleepy Bear in 2020.

Fast forward, Sleepy Bear products are now synonymous with quality nationwide. From high-end wellness studios on Melrose Ave to top CBD boutiques in NYC, Sleepy Bear is proud to have products available in pharmacies, high-end CBD shops, grocery stores, boutique retailers, gyms, and health care practitioner offices across the country. Sleepy Bear has been recognized nationally for being a top industry contributor for innovation, product safety, and quality standards in some of the industry's biggest publications.

Sleepy Bear remains majority veteran and family-owned to this day.
