Hawaiian hemp company Mana Artisan Botanics (Mana) unveiled a range of spa products at the Mana Up Holiday Showcase.
Held in partnership with Duty Free Shops (DFS) Hawaii, the event welcomed more than 1,500 attendees to Waikiki’s T Galleria. Mana was one of 11 companies selected by the Mana Up economic development initiative for its second cohort of the Mana Up Hawaii accelerator program for emerging businesses.
Mana products contain whole-plant hemp extracts rich in cannabidiol (CBD). The spa line includes hemp massage oil, balm and massage oil concentrate. Spa therapists can blend their carrier of choice with the hemp oil concentrate to boost the impact of a massage, reduce pain or inflammation, and encourage deep relaxation.
“The spa industry is a new market we have pursued with great success. Our Hawaiian roots, synergistic formulations and how our products are handcrafted in small batches with local ingredients have really resonated with the wellness focus of the spa industry,” said Mana CEO and co-founder Steve Sakala. “Mana means “life force energy” in Hawaiian, and our mission is to promote wellness by having our customers infuse themselves with nature’s mana.”
