What do you offer? 
I offer a carefully selected line of top-quality CBD & Hemp-derived products that I have thoroughly researched and chosen using a list of 12 criteria. My products include: Sublingual Oils, Targeted Topical Pain Salve, Skin Care Products (skin repair, scrubs, bath bombs & lip balms), hemp hearts, hemp protein, hemp seed oil + more. My chosen CBD products are high-concentration, organic, 3rd party lab tested, full or broad-spectrum, extracted from U.S. grown hemp flower and formulated with other excellent botanical ingredients.

What makes you unique?  
By profession, I am a Horticulturist, and have educated myself about cannabis and the cannabis industry. I am passionate about this plant (and its plethora of products) and love teaching others about it. (To clarify – cannabis includes both marijuana and hemp. The main difference is that hemp MUST contain LESS than 0.3% THC – the psychoactive ingredient). I completed an online Master of Cannabis certification course in 2017, attended numerous cannabis trade shows and conferences, spent time in Colorado learning about the industry and continually read and research about all things cannabis. My focus, though, is hemp and not marijuana. I am a huge advocate of the U.S. Hemp industry and want to see it regain a strong foothold in this country. Its possibilities are endless!

This is the same approach I took when I started the Botanical Garden of the Ozarks back in 1993. I educated myself (attended conferences, visited numerous gardens, read, researched) about how to start a botanical garden. There were NO books on this subject and NO internet at that time! I was a passionate, pioneering trail blazer back then in my early 30’s and I still am. I like the challenge of delving into new & unfamiliar territory and enlightening people about the extraordinary possibilities of these unknowns.

Anything else you’d like to tell Fayetteville about your new business?
Yes! The U.S. Hemp industry is only in its infancy stage, changing daily and evolving rapidly. Hemp became federally legal in the U.S. in December of 2018 but has yet to be regulated by the FDA. Unfortunately, this means, buyer beware. There is so much to know to become an aware consumer and so many questions you should be asking either the manufacturers or retailers of CBD products, especially those taken internally like the sublingual oils. Those 3rd party lab results (COAs) are key! I have seen too many companies that boast them and post them, but then when I examine them closely, I find they are incomplete, invalid, outdated and/or contradict the company’s claims. I have done the homework, asked the necessary questions and I know what makes a quality product.

Through HelloHemp! I want to help people to make informed decisions so that they get the best value for their money, are utilizing safe, quality products and are getting the MOST BENEFIT from CBD & Hemp. I offer some of the best quality products on the market. Bottom line – I want to be your knowledgeable and trusted source for superior CBD/hemp-derived products, and I hope to gain your loyalty as a customer to my new, local business.
