The Art of Living Well Podcast®

Jun 23, 2021

We are thrilled to welcome Christian Rasmussen, co-founder of MN Nice Botanicals. 

Born and raised in the northern suburbs of the Twin Cities, Christian Rasmussen met his co-founder Tad in school. After completing a year of college for physics in 2010, Christian decided he wanted to pursue a different path, and dropped out to dive into the Real Estate Industry. By 2014 he had successfully completed his first three property flips and decided to expand into rental properties. By 2017 Christian had amassed five rental properties from the initial start-up capital he used to flip his first home, three of which were purchased with zero money down, using creative financing strategies and an intense focus and dedication (they don’t call it ‘hard’ money for no reason!). Christian got married in 2018 and spent the rest of the year travelling. In 2019, Tad and Christian began MN Nice Botanicals to provide affordable, high quality CBD products for all. 

Christian says, "We are just a couple of nice Minnesotans trying to show the world what MN Nice is all about. Simply put, we thought CBD was too expensive, so in 2019 we decided to do something about it.  After a year of diligent research on CBD and its market, we discovered a large price difference between wholesale and retail prices. We felt that unreasonably high prices kept the consumer market from expanding and hindered many from being able to use CBD as a regular supplement. In an effort to make CBD products more affordable and available to more customers, we offer our products at the lowest prices we can afford."  

What makes MN Nice Botanicals stand out from their competition? All of their CBD is vetted from hemp grown in the USA, all of their products are handcrafted in small batches with high quality ingredients in MN and their CBD is tested for heavy metals, pesticides, residual solvents and other impurities.  Additionally, all their products are tested to ensure cannabinoid content as quality control is of the utmost priority to them. 

MN Nice Botanicals also donates 5% of their profits to MN based charities.

We had so much fun talking with Christian and learning about CBD, what it is, how it works and why it gets a bad rap. He also shares a few stories on how CBD has helped people.
