Hi Friends

Welcome to my Hemp Happens Website!

Natural health and wellness have always been a passion of mine, and when hemp started to make its way back into our society as a useful herb, that’s when I knew I needed to become completely involved in sharing this amazing plant with others!

Did you know that hemp is one of the oldest cultivated crops on the planet, and was first grown thousands of years ago in Asia? It is a sustainable and nutritious food source. The versatility of hemp is amazing as it was also used by numerous Ancient Civilizations for clothing, rope, pottery, paper, and the list goes on and on.

It just recently made its way back into mainstream society by in part of the 2014 Farm Bill that allows farmers to grow and harvest industrial hemp that is non-psychoactive, with low levels of THC.

Being a Colorado Native and growing up in a very small community, my parents and grandparents taught me how to farm vegetables, herbs, and raise animals. These young lessons stuck with me and showed me that everything really does start with nature and its vital resources.

I was very grateful for my upbringing, and work hard to pass my love of nature and all of it’s goodness onto others. My passion lead me to become a Certified Yoga Instructor, which I love, because I am able to share with my students how different poses, oils, music, and calmness can help relieve stress and anxiety. But our world has so much more stress than ever, and it can be very hard to stay focused and not live with anxiety and pressure caused by everyday life. I wanted to help my students because I saw the many benefits that hemp oil could provide, and that’s when I decided to implement it into my routines, come to find out, my students saw the amazing benefits too and fell in love with their results!

Life wasn’t always so peachy, I have been divorced, I’m still working on raising two kids, and I’ve had a major health issue at the age of 35.

Being such a natural remedy mom, I never thought that I would have ever had such a major problem, but I did and I suffered from a massive Stroke seven years ago.

Having always used natural products, remedies, and low impact solutions for pain and such, I even surprised myself when I chose to take the prescription that my Doctor wrote out, when I went on to try out this “new” Birth Control Drug that had just hit the market.

Later, it was determined that this “new” drug was the cause of my Stroke. So, you can probably see why I am just not a big fan of Pharmaceutical Meds.

Thankfully, I am still here to talk about it, and to still be able to care for my two cool kids. What I did learn from this experience was that my body doesn’t handle lab made drugs very well, and after this life altering chapter, I decided to find products that would help benefit and align with my beliefs, and help me recover from my lasting Neurological issues.

I had always heard about the healing benefits of hemp and some of the many ways in which it can be used from clothing, paper, housing, and more, but what really interested me was the fact that the oil was helping so many people with ailments like I was having, from migraines to anxiety.

This is when I knew that I needed to try it out for myself, and I have to tell you, since the very first day of use, I have had so much more balance, clarity, and my depression has been pretty much diminished. So, of course, I became a believer!

My mission now is to tell others all about the power of this little herb called hemp, and to share the benefits and uses with people who like me, want to find a natural solution to their health.

 

LIKE REBA MCENTIRE SAID–“ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD CAN’T BUY YOU BACK GOOD HEALTH.”

Hemp Happens was created to help promote the Hemp Movement and bring awareness to all. It is my true passion to spread the truth about the capabilities and potential that hemp can offer by breaking the negative stigmas that are often associated with it, and helping others to incorporate it into their daily lives.

Here at Hemp Happens, I have created a platform that will provide knowledge about the Hemp Industry, and a place where hemp vendors can share their products and services, which will always be approved by me as to the quality and usefulness that they provide. This is so that my readers can feel good that the products that I share, will have been researched and are of top-notch quality.

I have a heart for helping others who want to find inner peace, calmness, and health benefits, and my goal with my site is to share relevant content and useful information with you, my amazing readers.

Thank you so much for visiting, check back often for up-to-date info. I appreciate your support.
