Welcome, I just wanted to share a little bit about me and my company.
After 10 years of working in the mortgage business, I was looking for a new opportunity. While looking for a new challenge I stumbled upon a meeting called “Cannabis and Real Estate”. It sounded interesting and like nothing I had done before, so I decided to check it out.
That night was truly an eye-opening experience for me. With the passage of cannabis legalization in California, I thought this is the new frontier. In that meeting, I learned so much about the power of cannabis and that its sister plant, hemp, is actually federally legal across the US. It was that very night I called up my friends and decided to start my first cannabis business — a candle company. Which I still have- Urban Re-Leaf.
Along the way I learned that hemp is one of the strongest natural fibers, antimicrobial, hypoallergenic, and incredibly good for the environment — it uses much less water to grow, much less space, and it grows quickly, making it a great alternative to cotton or other traditional textiles. If that isn’t compelling enough, hemp is also UV resistant and softens over time!
I currently have both businesses, Urban Re-Leaf and Urban Re-Leaf Home. I hope you will continue on this journey with me as I continue to grow and learn more and more about cannabis/hemp.
