“I was born in Pittsburgh and grew up in Dormont & Scott, nearby neighborhoods about 10 minutes out of the city. I went to Montana for college in the summer of 2014 right after I turned eighteen. Missoula, Montana Hempfest is where I discovered the amazing hemp fabric. I bought a pair of hemp jeans that I hiked in, went to class in, went out in, and literally slept in- they were that comfortable and versatile.
I knew the environmental benefits of hemp (which I discuss below) and I wanted to start a hemp products brand. Blackstone LaunchPad at the University of Montana helped me structure my idea into a business plan and take action.
My grandmother is a seamstress and my momma was taught by her. I dropped out of college after my first year to start planetHEMP, but stayed in Montana to study the entrepreneurs in the community. After two years total in Missoula I came back home and teamed up with my family to grow planetHEMP.
Today our products are developed by my family. We put our skills together to bring you products that are desirable and eco-friendly. Our team, directed by my family, hand makes small batches of planetHEMP Clothing and some of our designs are sent to our New York manufacturer for larger production runs…”
Cannabis can be used to make almost anything. From clothing to medicine to plastic to paper and beyond, it can be used as an eco-friendly raw material to produce thousands of products and has been for centuries.
