Our founder, visionary, and overall company persona de facto, Paola Fernandez originally hails from beautiful Mayaguez, Puerto Rico. In 1986, Paola’s father Jose Fernandez paved the way for Paola to find her voice within the smoking community by opening the first known smoke shop in the area. Throughout her time hanging out at the smoke shop Paola found herself immediately drawn to cannabis culture, the very symbol that would become synonymous with High Hemp.
Where else could I turn? CBD, or cannabidiol, is a derivative of the cannabis sativa plant. While THC is prevalent in cannabis, CBD is extracted from the Sativa plant and contains less than 0.3% of the THC content that traditional cannabis contains. Immediately, I found myself drifting off into a relaxed state.
