A proud moment for hapihemp!
When we first set out with hapihemp we honestly had no idea how challenging the CBD industry was going to be! We just wanted to source and sell safe and effective CBD products to help people as much as CBD had helped us, but nothing is ever simple!
We have met some amazing during our CBD journey, who have made such a difference.
8th March 2022 marks International Women’s Day
It’s a day that celebrates the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women whilst also calling for equality – where men and women are treated the same.
No one government, country, charity, or group is responsible for it and this year’s theme is choosing to challenge.
As we said this industry is incredibly challenging, especially for women!
Last year we were delighted to be included in Cannabis Health magazine – 30 women leading the way in Cannabis!
From the best female-focused CBD brands to trailblazing campaigners, researchers, prescribers, and patients, WE MADE THE LIST!
So, as you can imagine we were extremely proud and very hapi! Its features like this that make it all worthwhile.
We work hard to produce safe and effective CBD products and recognition like this is particularly important to us and shows that we are fast becoming a well-known trusted brand that only sells credible products.
Cannabis Health magazine has done another article this year highlighting other women in the industry.
And of course, our very own inspiring Hannah Deacon is also featured at the top of the list.
Hannah is an award-winning medical cannabis campaigner. She ran a campaign in 2017/18 with the lobby group End Our Pain, which resulted in her son Alfie Dingley receiving the first legal NHS prescription for medical cannabis. His doctors received a permanent schedule one license in June 2018 which enabled them to prescribe legally for Alfie.
Hannah is also part of our team as a consultant, her wealth of knowledge and passion for this industry is incredible and we are lucky to have her involved with hapihemp.
