Roberta Wilson’s father, Norm, was a dermatologist and known for his comforting and comedic manner. Her mother, Audrey, was a pharmacist and passionate baker whose chocolate chip cookies were famous in her Southern California community. So, when Ms. Wilson and her brother Jeff Koz began a cannabis business using her mother’s cookie recipe, they figured it was only appropriate to pay homage to their healthcare professional parents.
That’s why in 2016, they pivoted Ms. Wilson’s bakery business, Audrey’s Cookies, into a new venture called Dr. Norm’s. The Los Angeles-based business offers lines of cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) baked products. The company’s California hemp-based CBD isolate, which contains no THC or psychoactive properties, is lab tested to determine its strength and quality before being mixed into the family cookie recipe at 15 mg per cookie. Testing the CBD oil is not required by California or federal law, but the company does so to ensure safety, accuracy and consistency. The isolate ensures that only the beneficial properties of the CBD oil make it into the product. The terpenes and other cannabinoids found in hemp extract that have a strong and unappealing taste are eliminated.
