How We Started
As a last resort, Mom and Dad (Shifra and Alex Klein), decided to take a risk opting to try cannabis treatment for their son, Yaakov, who was suffering from functional challenges brought upon by Autism. Unfortunately, what they found in the current market was less to be desired.
The Klein’s wanted transparency, knowing exactly what was in the products, where they came from, how they were processed, tested, etc. They knew their son would not take straight oil and there were no kosher products on the market.
They decided the only way to get these answers were if it was made in their own kitchen. After months of research and making connections in the industry, they were able to make lab tested product from their home. It took only half an hour after their son ate the cannabis-infused 4 cookie that his mother had baked for him.
From that moment, Yaakov and the Klein family’s lives began to change, after seeing such a positive change with cannabis treatment. Since the cannabis treatment was successful for their son, they began to make medicated edibles for those in their community — and such was the birth of their kosher edibles company Mitzva Herbal in 2017.
Although the Klein's have faced stigmatization for using cannabis as treatment in an orthodox Jewish community, the tide is beginning to shift as many are looking for an alternative for finding relief. The Klein’s story shows that cannabis can play a role in Jewish life, for medicinal and spiritual purposes. Mitzva Herbal has grown and evolved today into Mitzva Wellness, LLC., a force in the medical community, trusted by Doctors and Health Care Professionals. Mitzva Wellness, LLC. Is the first CBD brand certified kosher under the Orthodox Union.
