Exhibitor Spotlight: Favor

FAVOR JOURNEY

FAVOR is owned by GMYR, LLC DBA Favorsome.  The Company was started in late 2017 with one full year focus on product R&D and packaging.  It was our goal to create a mainstream all broad spec CBD brand that would appeal to the 20 plus crowd as well as their parents and grandparents.   

Our colorful scheme is inviting and fun unlike many other brands and our product quality is made from terpene rush distillate sourced from Colorado and now filled and manufactured in Dallas, TX and Manchester, UK.  We have signed an exclusive master distribution agreement that will bring our Favor products throughout all of UK, Iceland, Ireland, Spain, Germany and the rest of Europe as well as Balkan States.  Other master distribution agreements are being negotiated for Latin America & Canada.

We are in the process of adding a full cosmetic line with our CBD balance body oil launching in June 2019 & turmeric face oil, a brightening under eye serum, face masks and a face mist by year end.


FAVOR MISSION

In April 2014, my dad and I were in Miami enjoying the sun when I noticed he had a chronic cough that never dissipated the entire trip.  On our return, I asked his doctor to prescribe a z-pack but the cough persisted. We then got an x ray of his lungs and immediately the doctor told him he had a growth.  He was diagnosed with Stage 4 non-smoker lung cancer and given 6 months.

My best friend, my business partner, my father was inevitably going to die.   Otherwise in perfect health, we were told there was nothing we could do. I stopped all my work and took care of him day in and out for the next 2 years, going all over the country and even to Germany and Africa to seek different treatments.  While he did beat the odds and lived longer, he slowly and painfully succumbed to the cancer. In his last 3 months, I switched from trying to cure him to trying to reduce his pain. I tried everything including weed brownies but he couldn’t handle the psychedelic effect.

 On July 20, 2015, I watched the life being forcefully driven out of my father as he passed away over a 5 hour period.   His body and mind wanted to live but his lungs were giving out. Morphine helped to let him slowly pass that day but I struggled to accept the 3 months of him suffering as he slowly died.   Watching him sit by the window waiting to die while painfully hyperventilating non stop as he slowly starved himself to death as his body and mind gave up the desire to eat.

I wish I knew about CBD during that period.  I wish it was readily available as an option to lessen his pain.   And it is the sole reason I decided to venture into the CBD world.   As the father of a 7-year-old and a 6-month-old daughter, I would never wish for them to see their loved ones go through so much suffering.   It is my vision and mission to make my products available throughout the world and to make it affordable or even free for those that can not afford it.
