Our Story

Vera’s vision from day one was to create a top quality, organic and earth friendly wellness company. The goal being to share our amazing products with as many people as possible with a focus on education, sustainability and doing business in an ethical and conscious manner.

Vera began in 2018 but the idea started eight years prior when one of the founders, Tyler Bell, used the assistance of cannabis to free himself from his Opioid addiction. From a young age, Tyler participated in extreme sports, which eventually led to a serious back injury. Due to his injury, Tyler was prescribed Opioids for an extended period of time, which caused him to develop a serious addiction. After several years of attempting to unsuccessfully relieve his pain through prescription drugs, Tyler decided that was enough! The incredible results he experienced from cannabis sparked a fire inside him to learn more about the Earth’s natural plant remedies.

From there, his wife, Nicole, helped formulate their very first product. The salve slowly evolved as did their education of plant medicine and with that has come a shift to herbal tinctures, balms, medicinal mushrooms, skincare and the list continues to grow.

The team has grown to include other like-minded individuals with the same passion and vision – help people while preserving the environment.

We strive to promote a world without dependence on pharmaceutical drugs and to create unity and honesty among one another.

Our Three Pillars:

Holistic Wellness

Holistic wellness is an approach to being healthy that considers the body, mind and spirit. Attention to all three is needed to stay balanced. Holistic medicine believes that each of these things work together. We can not agree more. Our products are not only made with the highest quality ingredients but with intention, with care.

Our main goal has always been to create wellness products that actually work. How do we keep up this promise? By sticking to our guns and always using the highest quality ingredients and sourcing properly. We also understand that everyone is different – one size doesn’t fit all. We specialize in individualized products and manufacturing.

We can’t believe how many people tell us the hemp oil products they’re using just aren’t working. Our main goal is to make products that ACTUALLY work, and this is why we create Spagyrics Tinctures which are truly full essence and provide amazing results.



When we decided to start this company we wanted to do things differently, so, we strive to implement sustainable packaging and practices wherever possible.

Some of our Sustainability practices include:

We saw the chemicals being put into products and the waste being created from the industry and we knew we had to make a change – this is why all of our products are 100% organic, use extraction methods that use the entirety of the plant, and use as little plastic as possible.

We also, are continuously taking conscious steps to produce as little waste as possible. The end goal being a 100% waste free zero emission company.



We strive to be the company you can rely on.

We want to be a place you can look to for education about all things wellness,  so that you can make your own decision on what’s the right choice for you.

This is why we are always transparent about our practices and what’s in our products.

We are constantly looking for ways to provide more data and education on the herbal industry. Check out our educational blogs on all things herbal to learn more!
