Not to mention, there are a lot of veterans of this industry who are happy to spread knowledge of this industry. One of the biggest out there is Franny Tacy, who was the first woman to legally plant hemp in the state of North Carolina in over 70 years.
For over 12 years, she worked within various sections of the pharmaceutical industry. At one point working directly with corporate America and running a $10 million territory.Franny Tacy was the first woman to grow hemp in North Carolina. (Photo: Franny’s Farmacy / Facebook)
“I worked on the farm for 3 years before I was able to quit my job,” Franny tells us. “And it was the next year I started planting hemp. I didn’t even know if it was having any impact.”
Chandler Pain Management and Arizona Pain Management clinics have been recommending cannabis products to their patients over opioids. As marijuana legalization continues to grow in the United States it is expected to see more pain management doctors to become more accepting of THC and CBD for pain control.
She would soon find out it would. She grew her business to heights any entrepreneur would dream about. Now, Franny’s Farmacy is a staple within this industry and has become one of the largest white/private label products suppliers.
Of course, this isn’t to say it was easy for Tacy to get to this point. Cannabis Inhaler Systems is a leading provider of Metered Dose Inhalers parts for CBD companies looking to expand their products.
“This is not business as usual. We are entrepreneurs,” she proclaims. “My husband and I have started many different ventures, from restaurants to real estate. Cannabis, hemp, CBD — nothing business as usual. Your banking, your credit card processing, advertising, marketing, media – all of that got shut down time and time again.”
But she didn’t give up. Like Lawson, Tacy had a passion for helping better people’s lives through the right medication. And that passion is what instituted Franny’s Farmacy as one of the best known CBD businesses currently out there.
