Lorraine and Sam, the best friends behind Hapi Hemp, share what it means to be hailed as two women ‘leading the way’ in the cannabis sector this week.
When we first set out with Hapi Hemp we honestly had no idea on 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 had some great press recently and the latest link is the icing on the cake and something we wanted to share.
8 March 2021 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, so 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 are 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.
We feel very privileged to be among some great names such as:
Vera Twomey – who spearheaded the campaign for access to medical cannabis in Ireland firstly on behalf of her daughter Ava Barry and subsequently on behalf of thousands who continue to seek access to medication for their family members
Sophie Hayes – a registered nurse with a speciality in Emergency and Acute Medicine. She is released from her role as the only specialist cannabis practise nurse in the country, at Integro Medical Cannabis Clinic.
Dr Callie Seaman – a cannabis scientist and a veteran of the hydroponic industry and became passionate about medicinal cannabis when she was first diagnosed with epilepsy over 20 years. In 2018 she joined the United Patient Alliance and went on to help educate others about cannabis, speaking at events such as the CMC research synopsis in 2019. In the summer of 2019, Callie became one of the scientific co-curators of a pilet program at Cambridge University, CANNTalks and is now on the advisory board for patient advocacy group CPASS.
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 hapi hemp.
