About Caliper Foods

One in seven Americans currently use CBD—and now they have an ideal way to consume it. Traditional ingestible CBD products (typically oils, tinctures and processed edibles), patent-pending Caliper CBD is the first product to provide a consistently precise dose of CBD in a flavorless powder that quickly dissolves in any food or beverage. Fast acting, well absorbed and convenient, it’s ideal for health-conscious adults looking for a daily source of wellness they can trust. 

Caliper Foods (caliperfoods.life) was founded in 2015 on the belief that cannabinoids, especially non-psychoactive compounds like CBD, are a major new category in functional ingredients.  We encompass two distinct business lines: (1) Caliper Commercial Ingredients, which provides soluble CBD ingredients at scale to food, beverage, supplement, and other CPG manufacturers; and (2) Caliper Consumer, which sells its own line of CBD-infused products nationwide. 

We are a fast-growing company with a deep belief in developing talent internally.  Caliper Foods pays 100% of our full-time employees’ health care premiums and we offer an extremely flexible PTO plan.

We chose the name, Caliper, because we believe in measuring our success with proven and exact science. Everyone in the industry says they're the trusted partner. We actually prove it. We are a company, not a cult. We don't evangelize what we can't prove and we value process as much as outcome.
