How was Maui Farma started?
My name is Karuna Williams and I have an epic story to share.
As certified herbalists, we have been cultivating and assisting patients with herbal remedies long before the discovery and general acceptance of CBD, a non-psychoactive component of our products that provides a multitude of benefits. While pharmaceutical drugs have been proven to cause harmful side effects and addiction, we’ve made it our mission to provide the highest quality natural, Hawaiian grown plant-based herbal remedies.
Karuna Williams is a lifelong practicing herbalist who has created highly efficacious herbal formulations, many of which included Full Spectrum CBD grown in Hawaii. Paul Peterson, a native of Minnesota, is a classic Survivor/ Entrepreneur. Their paths crossed on the tropical island of Maui 6 years ago.

Our goal and mission statement
At Maui Farma, we aim to assist the local economy and help give people an opportunity to earn a living in the garden. Our vision is to inspire our community to produce a more sustainable lifestyle through innovative farming practices like polyculture gardening and regenerative agriculture. We believe that by doing this together, we can create a better future for our children and the Earth.
How many farms do you have and where are they located?
Our collective is currently working together with three farms here on the island of Maui. Located in Haiku, Kula, and Kanaio, these gardens are nestled on the gentle slopes of Haleakala, known as the House of the Sun.
This beautiful mountain provides us with an incredible opportunity to cultivate a variety of organic herbs year-round under a full-spectrum of sunlight and unique tropical climates.
We believe the life force of our Hawaiian grown plants creates unsurpassed qualities in our farm-to-bottle herbal remedies.
What products do you make and how are they unique?
We make a variety of internal and external products designed to provide several health and wellness benefits.
The infusion of CBD with other herbal remedies provides our customers with a completely organic, plant-based option for relieving stress, anxiety, and sleep disorders.
What are the benefits of CBD and your products?
A lot of people are still learning what CBD is and how it may help them. CBD stimulates the endocannabinoid system, which contains neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors in our nervous systems.
These receptors are involved in regulating a variety of bodily functions that CBD provides relief for, including sleep, appetite, pain, and immune system response.
What other herbal products are used in your products?
We infuse other herbs into our products that synergistically work together with CBD to provide a full spectrum of benefits. Turmeric for inflammation, passion flower for the nervous system, gotu kola for the mind, Kava for anxiety, noni and macadamia nut for the skin – All Hawaiian grown.
Who are these products for?
Our products are not just for those who are suffering from pain, anxiety, or insomnia, but for anyone who wants to support the general health of their mind, body, and spirit.
Why would someone use your products?
Our customers can be assured that they are receiving farm-to-body/plant-based wellness made in small batches with organic and Hawaiian grown ingredients. We are committed to third-party lab testing.
How does your company affect the world and community?

From our regenerative farming practices and bio-degradable packaging, to our commitment of perpetuating Hawaiian plant culture and donating free herbal remedies to patients in need – we hope to empower the people around us to help create a thriving and abundant future of health and well-being for all.
