Paola Fernandez, is the founder & CEO of High Hemp, a secondary cannabis company. She is a deeply enthusiastic person who has actually produced her own distinct line of ultra-high quality, specialized marijuana wrappers. What her dreams have actualized is the accurate, attention to detail production of flavored and unflavored, tobacco-free wrappers. Cannabis wrappers are frequently used for rolling up marijuana blunts. Blunts normally are made with loose cannabis packed into a tobacco leaf. The use of tobacco is problematic due to the fact that the nicotine that tobacco includes is extremely carcinogenic. This chemical, nicotine discovered in the tobacco leaf negates any healing advantages of the marijuana. There are much healthier alternatives to cigarette smoking severe tobacco leaf wrappers such as hemp, a natural option to carcinogenic wrappers. Tobacco and marijuana, are really not so best together, even though they have a long and tempestuous history. Offering an alternative to the typical tobacco wrap, Paola has actually set her mind to work and she developed her line that is described, rather plainly as the anti-tobacco wrap
Fantastic she is!
Please enjoy this interview. Paola has it going on and she deserves success in her own method.
Warren Bobrow=WB: Why cannabis? What was your course to the plant? I saw you are the anti-tobacco wrap. Any factor? (I don’t use tobacco and discover it typically off-putting); Health factor? Social?
Paola Fernandez=PF: My individual path to cannabis began before I was even mindful of what the plant was. My daddy continued in the smoking accessories service and likewise ventured into the traditional tobacco production service. Producing items like flavored cigarette paper, tobacco blunt covers, and stogies.
Investing my time every day at the head store helping people navigate through the ever-increasing amount of accessories to smoke your preferred plant. The 2nd part of my time was spent establishing products for said clients through my daddy’s tobacco business. What stuck to me the most with this insight was the need for a tobacco-free choice to roll blunts, which is a type of rolling a cigar with a sheet of homogenized tobacco paper (blunt wrap), a tobacco leaf, or taking a conventional stogie and changing the within with your favored herb.
I also saw a first-hand account of how these tobacco items were made, including processing with heavy chemicals, extreme pesticides, child labor to farm tobacco leaves, and as I discussed earlier large amounts of nicotine. All of these mind-blowing experiences pressed me to find a solution that would be the complete reverse of what is provided to consumers today. Reaching the ideal option, why not cover your cannabis with hemp? Taking the standard papermaking process and stripping it far from all its harsh chemicals. Creating an easy organic hemp sheet, keeping the hemp so unblemished it tests positive for CBDs. This product revolutionized the market and developed its own classification in the dominant tobacco industry. Clients fell for the idea of being able to delight in the “blunt wrap” experience without all the downsides of tobacco with the included benefits of hemp. Freshly added taxes and regulations added to tobacco products, we had the ability to dominate the marketplace extremely quickly.
WB: Please tell me about your company.
PF: In 2016 our business created an advanced product, hemp wraps. An all-organic sheet of hemp paper made to roll your own herbs. Offered in a foil pouch geared up with 2 hemp covers, and 2 cardboard filter suggestions. This small set was the product that escalated our sales, nearly immediately. Being first to market certainly has its benefits as we struck tradeshows with a one of a kind item, taking everybody by surprise. This item completely gets rid of the requirement to use tobacco ever once again. Rolling marijuana with hemp sheets just seemed like the apparent answer the whole time. Developing this product every action that we take is a mindful effort to benefit our consumers smoking cigarettes experience, and the environment. We pride ourselves in only utilizing natural items, and natural hemp.
While likewise removing as much plastic as we can from our product packaging. In the next 6 months, we intend to introduce our next huge task hemp sheesha. We are changing a 400- year-old tradition, which traditionally uses high concentrations of tobacco with a one of a kind hemp replacement. This hemp sheesha is made with all natural ingredients to create a relaxing smoke. The CBDs in the hemp base will unwind every part of your body. On our order of business also is to continue contributing to our line of flavors. This is a part of developing High Hemp Wraps that I like. Being able to launch and shock our consumer with a brand-new taste, is by far my favorite part of the job. Curating each flavor and making a special blend to wake the senses as you smoke. I’m hoping to be the Baskin-Robbins of hemp covers.
WB: Do you have a mentor? What about preconceptions? What is the market that you want to permeate the most, why?
PF: I have a few coaches that have actually assisted me throughout my entrepreneurship journey, however out of everyone, my papa has definitely been the one to open my eyes. I would like to develop a different technique that also speaks to the female customer.
WB: Do you prepare?
PF: I enjoy cooking, it’s absolutely among my favorite previous times. From seeing my mommy and binge-watching the food channel I curated my own design of cooking. Among my preferred memories was taco Tuesdays. My mommy and I would produce tasty vegan tacos, with portabella mushrooms changing the meat. Among my preferred meals to this day. My favorite restaurant pre-COVID needs to be this regional Mexican dining establishment in my local town. From their chips and salsa to a variety of tacos you can never fail.
WB: What is your passion?
PF: For me, life’s most significant passion would be creating. Either an item, marketing project, or brand-new business. I’m most pleased enjoying concepts grow from a believed to a fully developed idea. The unlimited work that enters into developing is always, rewarded at the end. Getting up every day with the opportunity to develop my own ideas is a blessing. I would hate a world where I had to conform to a 9 to 5 and manifest for somebody else.
