Today we’d like to introduce you to Jessica Dory.
Hi Jessica, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstory with our readers?
VERDE COLLECTION — ORGANICALLY-GROWN + WOMAN-LED CANNABIS BRANDS.
Verde Collection, home of CBD brands; FoCo Organics + Grass Paws, was born from a mother’s medical need and a vibrant vision to bring to the canna-market a line of clean and transparent products from Seed to Shelf™.
My husband and I started this business is 2018 when I was diagnosed with Lupus and guided by my Rheumatologist and team to look to CBD as a supplement to help support me during this time of need. I was so very grateful to their guidance and little did I know it would launch my next career choice, which is really a labor of love, and passion.
Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Considering that this is a very fresh and new industry it has gone very smoothly for us. Bumps here and there as the industry ebbs and flows and rules change we are prepared to pivot and make the necessary changes. I would say a majority of the struggles come as the industry is emerging and establishing.
