” I’m extremely grateful to all the first responders, veterans and their families for all their sacrifices.”

Tara Kyle : Author, American Wife | Veteran Family Advocate


Courage CBD products contain ZERO THC – made for those who put service before self.

We all serve – our country, community, or family.

Working the night shift or standing on a wall is not everyone’s idea of a good time (well…not everyone).   But someone needs to step up, make the tough calls, do the hard yards.  So, you do.

 ZERO THC – Really?

Our Broad Spectrum, ZERO THC CBD is distilled using cold press alcohol extraction.

Sure, it’s more time consuming and resource intensive, but the result is worth the effort. The extraction process is infinitely gentler on the hemp plant. Unlike Carbon Dioxide (C02) extraction and isolate, we do not strip out the terpenes (the good stuff).

Courage can therefore provide the sought after “entourage effect” of THC products, minus the “high” and the risk of “peeing hot”.

First responders, nurses, teachers, law enforcement, farmers, truckers, serving military our Veterans and so many others answer the call every day.

Hunters, shooting sports enthusiasts and gun owners are steeped in the traditions of service, also enjoy the benefits of CBD, with no risk or stigma.

At Courage, we served our country. And are active hunters and sports shooters.

“Veteran” isn’t a marketing tag line for us.

Simply put, we get it

The Journey 

From national security professional to hemp distiller.

The LCDR Greg Keeley, USN (ret) is a Service-Disabled Navy Combat Veteran with the unique distinction of commissioned service in both the United States Navy and the Royal Australian Navy, serving in combat roles in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pacific.

Born and raised in Australia, he operated for Her Majesties Australian Service in various capacities including the Royal Australian Navy and Australian Federal Police. He also served as Advisor to the U.S. Undersecretary of Defense Intelligence at the Pentagon.

The How?

Greg launched his first CBD company in 2017 with the sole aim of helping other Veterans. He quickly realized issues such as PTSD, sleeplessness, anxiety, and body soreness was not limited to those who have served in combat. The need was much more widespread and the solutions evolving rapidly.

Wanting to stay true to mission, in 2021 Greg founded Courage.  Starting from scratch, with a simple, defined mission – to help ALL those who put service before self, with the finest American farmed and formulated hemp products – no matter how or where they serve.

The Why?

After a decade of taking seven different Veterans Affairs prescribed opioids every day for ailments including PTSD and Traumatic Brain Injury – he shook the dependency on VA drugs, thanks in large part to CBD.
