– The value of community and marketing in promoting a business Wealth and Wellness Through Multi-Income Streams and Hard WorkIn this episode, we heard about a family’s legacy in farming, with their great-great-grandfather acquiring property as a man of color in the 1800s.
Despite the challenges and obstacles faced, he was able to maintain and build upon his property by utilizing it for multi-income streams, including farming and raising livestock.
This legacy was passed down through generations, with each family member contributing their own additions and hard work to the land.
The speaker, who has a degree in business and experience in social services, recognizes the potential for profit in doing what one loves and sees farming as a way to do this.
The company, Datus Henry Industries, produces all of their hemp-based products themselves, from seed to shelf. This includes a range of products such as tinctures, muscle freeze, salves, gummies, and even an essential line using CBD-infused olive oil, sugars, and syrups.
The potential for CBD in various products CBD, or cannabidiol, has been growing in popularity for its potential benefits. The company grows its own hemp, processes the oil, and uses CBD oil to make its various products.
These products have been positively received by customers, who have even found creative uses for them beyond their intended use, such as using CBD-infused olive oil on hair for added luster and growth.
The Importance of Education and Tackling PropagandaHowever, the hemp movement still faces challenges due to propaganda and misinformation regarding the plant. The speaker, who founded Hemp Aware to spread awareness and education about hemp, emphasized the importance of tackling these misconceptions.
There has been a history of propaganda and demonization of the plant, with claims such as it caused black women to walk in white people’s shadows or caused Mexicans to rape white women. Dispelling these harmful and untrue narratives is crucial to promoting the full potential of hemp.
The Challenges and Opportunities of the Hemp IndustryThe hemp industry faces its own set of challenges, including the lack of infrastructure for distributing and transporting hemp products. However, the potential of hemp beyond just CBD is vast.
This includes using hemp for industrial materials such as plastics, concrete, and fire-retardant properties. The clothing industry can also benefit from hemp’s durability and strength. In addition to these eco-friendly uses, there are also potential medicinal and wellness benefits to be explored.
The Value of Community and Marketing for Hemp Companies
The Datus Henry Industries family recognizes the importance of community and marketing in promoting their business. They rely on word of mouth and events to promote their products, such as hosting infused dinner events and lunch and learn events.
