The hemp industry is one of the fastest-growing industries in the world today, and women are playing a significant role in its growth and success. Historically, women have been underrepresented in the hemp industry, but this is changing rapidly, and women are now taking their rightful place.
Hemp is a vast and diverse sector that includes everything from farming to processing, manufacturing, and retail. As the industry grows, so does the need for skilled professionals who can manage the various aspects of the business. Women everywhere are stepping up, filling these roles and becoming leaders in the industry.
We broke into the industry by selling our handcrafted products at local farmer’s markets and events like Earth Day, PRIDE, and Annual Street Fairs. Everyday of the week we hauled 6 foot tables, all our décor and products, set up for 4 hours, then break it all down and prepare for the next day. It was hard physical labor, but we persevered. Over the last 10 years, we have evolved and settled into a beautiful retail shop in La Mesa, CA and have our online shop which serves customers nationwide. As women ourselves, we have attracted some of the most amazing women who have helped us grow to what we are now.
INNOVATION & SUSTAINABILITY
While you may be hearing about hemp and CBD a lot in conversation, social media and news, it is still a relatively new and innovative industry. This means that there are many opportunities for women to make their mark and to create new and exciting businesses. Women are bringing their unique perspectives and skills, and this is driving innovation and growth.
Our team of women here at Kb are drawn to the hemp industry because of its focus on sustainability and social responsibility. Hemp is a renewable resource that can be used in a wide range of products, helping people on multiple levels. We are passionate about these issues, and we are inspired by like-minded women using their influence in the industry to promote sustainability and to make a positive impact on the world.
MAKING AN IMPACT
One area where we frequently encounter other women who are making a significant impact in the hemp industry is in the development of hemp-based health and wellness products. Women are using their knowledge and expertise in herbal and naturopathic health to create new and innovative products that lead to healthier and more balanced lives. These products include everything from CBD Creams and Salves to Oils, Gummies and other supplements.
Overall, women are making a significant contribution to the hemp industry, and their influence is only going to grow in the years to come. As the industry continues to evolve and expand, women will continue to play a vital role in its success. With passion, creativity, and expertise, women are helping to create a more sustainable, socially responsible, and innovative industry that is making a positive impact on the world.
