How did you come up with your business idea? I've always loved the plant Cannabis since I was very young. I always believed that this plant could really make a big change in the world and we are witnessing it right now! I did some research and found out that planting Hemp is legal in Portugal, so I decided to take a shot at it. I really believe this industry has a lot to give.
How important is Hemp to the project? It is the Holy grail of the project for sure!
Who is your primary audience - and who is the more unexpected one? Nowadays we have much more people informed about the beneficial effects of cannabinoids, so I would say that we aim for people from 8 (with parental consent, of course) to 80 years old. The more unexpected I would say is everyone who is uninformed regarding the legalization and everything else related to this plant. I realized people jump to conclusions when talking about it, and I really want to change that.
What is the greatest difficulty you feel about HempLife? I would say the burocracy and some regulations about the licence for planting Hemp.
And your biggest achievement? Having a Hemp Farm/business.
What are the upcoming challenges or plans to develop HempLife? Setting up a platform to help others to become Hemp related businesses and make a change in Portugal.
What tips can you give us and to anyone starting and/ or wanting to develop their own Hemp business? If it really moves you, no matter what anybody says, just go for it!
Final words: Thank you for this opportunity! Love you all, and we're together in this HempLife
