Our Story

Founder and CEO of Malaya Botanicals, Pia T. Barton, embarked on a personal journey to create natural products to relieve her debilitating fibromyalgia and painful back and neck pain. Born in the Philippines, raised in San Leandro, CA, and now living in San Francisco, Pia’s personal journey began after an injury as a triathlete. 

Pia suffered for many years and tried all known and unknown physician prescriptions available to avoid undergoing surgery. Eventually she realized she wanted a more natural remedy, and so she embarked on a journey to find the perfect solution. 

Through her passion, research, and resilience, Pia discovered CBD from Cannabidiol and it changed her life.  She began creating CBD infused products as an everyday holistic approach to discovering wellness – and thus, Malaya Botanicals was born!

Malaya Botanicals is created with intention and a community first approach, With a focus on modern science and integrity, Pia hopes to empower people from all walks of life to experience malaya (a Filipino word for ‘freedom’) and to benefit from the truly liberating powers of premium CBD
