How did Hannabis begin?
In January 2018, Hannabis began as from my (Hannah Wenn) passion to educate others on the benefits of CBD and the versatility of the cannabis plant, whilst still being at home to enjoy and provide for my family. I originally became involved with the CBD industry in January 2018, I’d partnered with multiple companies over 18 months, trying to find the right one for me but after attending the first HEMP & CBD Expo in March 2019, with some coaxing from my soon to be business partner (unbeknown to us at the time) I decided that if I wanted something done right then I should just do it myself. Hannabis became officially ‘born’ in January 2019 when I registered Hannabis as an official company and no longer just a blog. Back then Hannabis started with just 4 handmade scented lip balms.
In a short amount of time it became clear that two minds would be better than one and I teamed up with graphic designer Nicole Gore to push Hannabis to its full potential. We instantly began planning to launch our own range of CBD products which released in June 2019, with at least one new product release every month since. In the months that followed Hannabis quickly grew into a free affiliate programme open to anyone and everyone interested in starting their own CBD business from home. A couple of month’s had passed and as Hannabis began to receive more feedback we added more products. To include an original clothing range inspired by the CBD and Cannabis industry, designed by us, a number of self-development courses, spiritual items and a growing number bespoke handmade CBD cosmetic products – including the UKs first CBD shampoo bar with the hopes to encourage customers to reduce their plastic waste and become more consciously aware of their consumer impact.
What does Hannabis stand up for?
The Hannabis branding was born from our very own personalities, we’re everyday mum’s of two toddlers each, balancing family, business and being absolute queens in our own right. We created our crystal crown wearing queen as symbol of women empowerment amongst what we have found to be a very male dominant industry, it quickly became clear that this very niche style of branding was going to make us stand out from the crowd. Our ethos is inclusively about being one; with ourselves, with each other and with the world that surrounds us. We protect the lives we have been given and the world we live in by making everything as eco-friendly & recycling everything possible. Being a part of Hannabis means supporting, uplifting and empowering one another to be happy, love ourselves and enjoy life!
All in all, Hannabis is a truly unique company within the industry, our message is different to many others and our transparency has allowed both our affiliates and customers to feel at ease with the products we offer and the information we provide. Our branding allows us to stand out from the crowd and reach people that might not have previously thought about joining the industry or even trying CBD before. We do what we can to support the Cannabis Activists as much as we do anyone else, and we’re constantly finding new and innovative ways to help them reach new audiences and aid them in spreading their own important messages. Hannabis is about aiding everyone in the industry, from seed to sale, so that we can lift the entire industry together and not just leverage the parts of it that we know would make us more profit. We think it is for this reason Hannabis was recently nominated for the GHP Medical Cannabis Award 2019 which we are awaiting to hear the results from.
