RESTART CBD Contact - Handcrafted in Austin, Texas

Our Story

Co-Founders: Shayda and Sydney Torabi

CBD has been used in our family since 2016,  as a natural alternative to over-the-counter and/or prescribed medications to treat all kinds of symptoms and ailments.

Shayda was trying to recover from an auto-pedestrian accident in Austin when she was first introduced to the health and wellness properties of CBD.

“In 2016, as a pedestrian, I was hit by a car, leaving me with a fractured sacrum, pelvis and fractured nose. For months I went through a series of PT treatments.  I was taking steroid injections on a weekly basis, but the pain lingered.  When my doctor recommended surgery, my mother suggested I try CBD first.

My mother had already been researching CBD as a natural remedy for pain relief. And when she discovered that it also promoted bone growth and could help with the healing process, she started giving me CBD lotions, tinctures, and vapes to consume this ‘fairly new to market’ natural herb.

After taking CBD for a few months, I began to notice the pain was gone from my pelvis. Since that time, the Torabi family has used CBD to help provide healing and recovery and to promote overall wellness day to day through constant low dosage consumption.”

During that time, we encountered the frustration of finding quality organic hemp products from trusted suppliers. And as a family of athletes, living in Texas, we wanted a legal product with Zero THC. Realizing very few pure products existed in this market, we decided to create our own. 

After months of research and making all the connections needed to deliver a high caliber product, RESTART CBD was born.

We use a pure CBD isolate in our Signature Products Line (Replenish, Recover, Relax and Repair) derived from organically grown industrial hemp with CO2 extraction, 3rd party lab testing for quality, and organic ingredients.

RESTART CBD is Austin’s first locally handcrafted organic CBD wellness brand founded by two sisters, Shayda and Sydney Torabi. 

  • We partner with US growers of premium hemp and offer the absolute highest quality products.
  • Our farms are certified organic.
  • After harvest, FDA registered facilities use Co2 extraction machines to process the hemp.
  • The facilities are GMP compliant and work closely with local health departmens to ensure clean manufacturing from seed to sale.
  • Good product starts with good soil, but it doesn’t stop there.
  • Our plants are free of pesticides or chemicals, then extract them with only Co2, unlike the majority of the market who uses ethanol or hexane extracted isolate.
  • We don’t over process our products. Once our extract has been decarboxylated and winterized, we combine it with only organic carrier oils, ingredients, and flavorings.
  • When it comes to products like gummies and soft gels, we work alongside experienced manufacturers who can provide us with high end natural formulations.

Today, manufacturers are adding all kinds of ingredients to their products to make them smell, look, or taste good. Rarely do we have any idea what these ingredients are, or where they’re sourced.


RESTART CBD: Our Mission

Hemp CBD is a hot topic for those who want to provide healthy alternatives to prescribed medications. Unfortunately many influential agencies are trying to manipulate the conversation for corporate financial benefit. This evolving dialogue will have a huge impact on society.

Shayda and Sydney are local entrepreneurs with a mission to change the hemp industry for the better.

We are hemp cannabis advocates. We believe in the body’s natural ability to heal and recognize the synergistic value of nature’s remedies.  We believe that the mind, body, and spirit work together as a system of energy.  Balancing oneself and maintaining optimal health within your Endocannabinoid System is key to reaching your full potential. RESTART CBD aims to formulate products that create synergy within the Endocannabinoid System to achieve self-healing, happiness, and longevity.

We work with hemp farming communities, local educators, other hemp industry leaders, and manufacturers to bring this natural, healthy product back to the market.

  • Honest Research: We use reliable certified labs worldwide.
  • Focus on Quality: We only partner with exceptional brands who focus on quality. Our CBD products are made from industrial hemp farms that produce pure and clean CBD, testing above 99%+ with no herbicides, pesticides, or solvents and zero or <0.3%  THC.
  • Health and Wellness: Every product we offer is health-focused and eco-friendly. We do not use fillers, additives, preservatives or flavorings. Our products are vegan, gluten-free, non-GMO, organic.
  • Education: A lack of education about CBD will be costly for the future of everyone. It’s not too late to become aware of what’s going on in your state before the hemp rug is pulled from under your feet.
