Inesa Ponomariovaite, founder of Nesa's Hemp, entered the industry after receiving a phone call from her mother, who disclosed that she had been diagnosed with cancer.
“She called me at 7:00 in the morning and by 7p.m. I was already standing at the international airport to leave the country saying 'I’m going to save my mom.'"
Determined to help her in any way she could, the Lithuania native began a two-year investigation into the cannabis industry. Frustrated with what she found, Ponomariovaite decided to start Nesa’s Hemp in order to meet her high quality standards.
“I was able to develop what I was looking for and our products are completely different because I was trying to match soil from 2,000 years ago. So there’s no chemtrails, the microbes are very healthy, there's no chemicals involved in planting the plants or harvesting the plants. There's no technology or machines –it’s completely handcrafted and really like ancient times,” she said.
