We caught up with the owner, Alicia Salazar, and asked her some questions about what makes her business so successful.

What inspired you to start this business?
A desire to share the experiences I've had in regaining my health through food, lifestyle changes, and holistic health. Plus, knowing that there is a need to educate the community to minimize misconceptions and stigmas about not just healthy food but also the hemp plant.
How long have you been in this business?
Since 2017
What keeps you going every day?
I enjoy being a part of a community that wants to grow and make changes that will benefit the people who are a part of it. I want to be present in my community and in the lives of my children. By working close to home, I hope that I'll be able to make small sustainable changes that my children will also benefit from.
What is your favorite part about your business?
Educating others
List the services you provide
Holistic nutritional counseling, consultations on using hemp products (e.g. oils, proteins, balms), cooking demonstrations, lectures, kitchen detoxes, food store tours
Out of all of the services you provide, what would you say is your specialty?
Targeting the endocannabinoid system to find balance and health - through food, exercise, alternative therapies
What is one thing you would like us to know about your business?
The endocannabinoid system - discovered in the early '90s - plays a role in many functions of the body, particularly maintaining homeostasis. Chronic illness is a result of inflammation and targeting this system is key to preventing chronic illness. There are various ways to target this system - not just through hemp - but through certain sustainable lifestyle changes!

Thank you Alicia for sharing with us and giving us insight to your business!
