MyJane Collaborates with Hedger Humor to Bring Wellness and Laughter to Holiday 2020 with the Introduction of a Special-Edition CBD Gift Box Collection
Award-winning cartoonist behind popular digital comic, Adrienne Hedger, imprints her comedic interpretation of modern life and women’s wellness on new SheSurvival Box by MyJane – Hedger Humor Edition
IRVINE, Calif., October 19-2020 – MyJane has collaborated with Hedger Humor to give women who do it all a curated CBD wellness experience in a box, served with a healthy dose of comedic relief. This SheSurvival Box by MyJane – Hedger Humor Edition makes the ideal holiday gift for any woman stressed out by what life throws at her and yearning for a good laugh, a long nap and a wellness break.
“It’s no joking matter that 2020 has upended life as we knew it,” Hedger said, reflecting on how a pandemic transformed the 47-year-old entrepreneur into a multitasking, homeschool-teaching, Netflix-binging, weary-eyed woman too tired for self-care. “This collaboration with MyJane brings together the health benefits of laughter with the wellness benefits of CBD. It’s the perfect antidote to 2020.”
Hedger is the award-winning cartoonist behind the popular online comic “Hedger Humor.” Her work has been featured on BuzzFeed, Disney, HuffPo, Today, Yahoo!, Upworthy and other popular media outlets. Several of Hedger’s cartoons have become viral sensations, reaching tens of millions of people worldwide with her fresh take on motherhood, marriage, career and growing older. Before launching Hedger Humor, she was the lead cartoonist for Nickelodeon’s website for parents. Hedger, a California native, also illustrated and co-authored three humor books about parenting, published by Andrews McMeel.
MyJane’s approach to wellness, coupled with Hedger’s slice-of-life comics, is a winning combination, according to MyJane President Hélène Blanchette:
“Adrienne is the comedic storyteller for a generation of women, and we’re honored that she’s chosen to introduce her community of moms to MyJane and CBD wellness for women. She has conceived an original cartoon series, which is included in the box, to normalize the calming benefits of plant-based wellness through her comedic lens.”
CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a compound extracted from the hemp plant. It’s celebrated as an option for replacing the stressors, aggressions and aches of life with a clearer mind, calmer body and refreshed attitude. The special-edition collection features tried, tested and approved pampering hemp-derived products, including a MyJane Raspberry Champagne nano-CBD lip balm, Mantra Mask Hemp CBD Repair Mask, Kush Queen Relax Bath Bomb and Vital Leaf CBD Relief Capsules.
The SheSurvival Box – Hedger Humor Edition also includes a MyJane-branded sleep mask, gold votive holder with a vanilla-scented candle, a series of humoristic cards, and a door hanger (“Keep Out – Woman in Serious Recovery Mode”); a Cannafloria Essentials Be Calm Hemp Inhalation Pouch and a Purpose brass bracelet handcrafted by a female survivor of human trafficking. MyJane donates a portion of the sale of every box collection to International Sanctuary, a nonprofit empowering young women and girls escaping human trafficking to embrace their true identity and worth.
What sets apart the SheSurvival Box – Hedger Humor Edition from other CBD boxed experiences is the collaboration with Hedger Humor, which reinforces the importance of laughter in any wellness routine. Hedger Humor developed a comic unique to MyJane that addresses modern life, stress and acceptance that is available only in this boxed collection.
The SheSurvival Box – Hedger Humor Special Edition is available from myjane.com on Oct. 15, 2020 for $59. The ready-to-give box comes with a decorative gift tag adorned with a Hedger Humor cartoon creation.
