The company, which rebranded to Therabody in 2020, also produces other devices and accessories. The products include TheraOne, which is a line of USDA Certified Organic CBD products like lotions, massage oils, and sleep tinctures. It's the first brand to receive a USDA-Organic seal across the entire product line. 

Where is Therabody made?

TheraOne, the line of CBD products for Therabody, is made entirely in Colorado. Plant cultivation, manufacturing, and packaging all occur in Colorado, which is the first and leading U.S. state with state-level hemp regulation.
