Live in MotionTM


The name “LifePatent” represents two fundamental ideas that, when combined, forms the vision for our company: “Life”, or the act of experiencing the world with fullness and wellness of mind and body, combined with “Patent”, or protection. In short, we exist to help protect life.
We believe Nature gave all of us Life’s patent: It’s called hemp.
LifePatent is not another faceless hemp oil company. We are human beings who care deeply about our customers. Because, when it comes down to it, we understand our customers are people seeking relief. As trusted members of our communities, we are dedicated to helping others live life to the fullest. This is something truly worth protecting.
