When did you start your business and what was the inspiration to start The Hemp Spot?
Why I created The Hemp Spot was because when I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease called Ankylosing Spondylitis. I was looking for healthier protein products for quicker recovery from my workouts as well as natural pain relief options for my inflammation. Once I discovered more natural protein options, I came across Hemp Protein and learned how much more protein per serving hemp protein had compared to other proteins and all the other benefits of including hemp into your diet. After searching for more Canadian Hemp products to try out I quickly realized there were VERY few stores holding Hemp products and not one store that was strictly Canadian hemp based. At that point in 2018, The Hemp Spot was created.
In your opinion, why is hemp such a great product?
Hemp will help save the trees as trees take years to grow and hemp takes between 90-120 days to grow. Paper, wood, toilet paper, etc can all be made from hemp and hemp helps eliminate 4x more carbon dioxide than trees. Anything trees can do, hemp can do!
What do you want people to know about hemp and how it can benefit them?
That Hemp is NOT marijuana. Hemp has over 50,000 different uses and is environmentally friendly.
