About

Alta makes delicious full spectrum hemp-infused functional snacks, made with only the best wholesome ingredients, that bring mind-body balance within reach. Alta combines flavor and functionality in good-for-you snacks packaged for easy portability to deliver a calm-inducing experience anytime, anywhere. Alta's Tahini Bites are made with 20mg of carefully sourced, 3rd party lab-tested CBD and come in three unique flavor combinations: Sesame + Honey, Turmeric + Ginger, and Rosemary + Fig. Packed with healthy ingredients like organic pumpkin seeds and tahini, a nutritious sesame butter, Alta Bites are layered with complex flavors and hints of natural sweetness. Built on the notion that every bite should enhance wellness, Alta never uses artificial ingredients or refined sugar.

Alta bites were noted by the Wall Street Journal in October 2020 as one of the best tasting hemp-infused foods on the market. The brand and our founder, Nyree Bekarian Mack, were highlighted by New Hope Network in March 2021 as a leading women-owned brand.



Founding Story

At Alta, we know how challenging it can be to escape the noise and find your sense of calm. We believe achieving a sense of daily balance should be an attainable goal and satisfying experience. We create snackable products that provide consistent, convenient ways to nourish body and mind - so that you can find peace in the chaos with greater ease and enjoyment. 

Founded by Nyree (scientist, regulatory expert, and busy mom of two), who was looking for ways to integrate more functional ingredients into her daily routine, and also find a more holistic way to treat migraines. After trying CBD, Nyree quickly became an advocate. However, she was surprised by the lack of transparency the sourcing, extracting and processing of the ingredient.  She also disliked the messiness and inconsistent dosing that came with traditional product forms - oils and tinctures - and wasn't interested in eating the overly-processed, low-quality ingredients commonly found in CBD snacks, like gummies.

So, she set out to create a functional food brand inspired by her experience with CBD. Her mission: to create a line of delicious, easy to eat products that contain good-for-you ingredients you can trust in unique flavor profiles for ultimate satisfaction anytime, anywhere. 

After months of testing recipes, the Tahini Bite was born. Our signature product, this hemp-infused snack delivers quality-sourced hemp extract, accurately dosed for consistency, flavored with unconventional ingredients, for an enjoyable, calming experience you can count on.
