How did you get started in this business?

We heard that cannabidiol (CBD) was good for a number of things and that it was legal if it was from industrial hemp. I started to look into it more. My father had been suffering from chronic pain for as long as I could remember and I wanted to see if it could help him. Amazingly enough it did! He has been our poster child for relieving chronic pain. I thought if I could help him, how many more people we could help?

Why did you choose this business?

For a number of reasons. Like I mentioned before, cannabis is an amazing plant with so many benefits. We wanted to bring an old school remedy back with a new flare. As a registered nurse, I have seen the harm that narcotics can do. We wanted to change that, we wanted to give people an option when it comes to their health. Billy and Alex both have the same passion and reasons, they have seen friends die from using narcotics and they thought it would be great to offer something that everyone could have access to that would benefit them.

What is your educational background?

I am a registered nurse, I am working on my BSN to MSN. I took a break from school to get this business going. My goal is to become a nurse practitioner. Alex is currently studying and mastering the use of a 3 D Printer. His hope is to someday make affordable robotic prosthetics. Billy is a professional moto-cross athlete and he has experience in marketing and business development. Alex is an engineering student and has experience is web design, construction and launching startup programs for small businesses.

What is CBD?

CBD (cannabidiol) offers the full spectrum of health benefits found in medical cannabis but without the side effects of THC. In clinical settings CBD has been shown to help treat cancer, relieve convulsions, inflammation, anxiety, nausea, stress, lower blood pressure, headaches and many more health concerns. While we cannot make claims as to the effects of CBD, Cannabidiol oil, or hemp CBD oil, we are advocates and recommend searching independently for the benefits of CBD. Please note that all of our products do not contain THC and will not make anyone high. All of our products are 100% legal in the USA.

What are your strongest business traits?

I think three of us bring a lot to the table. My nursing education and experience with patients who have chronic illness helps me to understand what people are looking for when it comes to healthier alternative choices. Billy has a great business sense and has so many ideas for making things better. Alex has a great way of connecting to people. The bottom line is, we have a passion to help people.

What motivates you to succeed besides the desire to make money?

Our desire is to help people. We can make a difference in someone’s life by offering them supplements that otherwise they would not have access to.

What do you offer that the competition doesn’t?

We are Albuquerque’s first premier hemp shop. There is not a shop in Albuquerque that offers the products that we do. We take pride in offering top-of-the-line products to our customers.

How do you maintain your competitive edge?

Being the first premier hemp shop in Albuquerque gives us a competitive edge, but also being a partner location for CW Botanicals by the Stanley Brothers is something that we are very proud of. We also just partnered up with Mary’s Nutritionals which is another business relationship we are proud to have.

What was your best business decision?

To start this business as a small online store and then slowly branch into a store front.

What contributions to the community (charitable or otherwise) are you most proud of?

We are part of an advocacy group that promotes patient education and community awareness for medical cannabis. We are part of a nonprofit called CURE NM.

How has the Internet affected your business and how do you think it might affect your business in the future?

We started out as an online store, which helped to push us to take the leap of faith to open a store front.

If you had to choose another career or start another business what would it be?

As a little girl I wanted to be a nurse, I was fascinated by fixing people and playing with little medicine bottles. I wanted to open an apothecary and this is close. If we can someday, we will open an apothecary and offer all naturalceuticals.

Three passions outside of work?

I work all the time, but I enjoy our family lake house at Conchas Dam. Billy enjoys his moto-cross and Alex loves to invent and tinker with things.
