When 502 Hemp founder, Dee Dee Taylor, hung up her shingle on her first store, she had only one mission, to help as many people as possible with CBD. Dee Dee found that using CBD enhanced the daily life of both her and her husband, John. Even though the FDA continues to have a strict policy against any medical claims regarding CBD and a continuing refusal to publish studies conclusively suggesting anything to the contrary, she quickly realized that there was a continuing stigma attached to CBD and other hemp derived products. To make matters worse, she found that many people in this industry sought to capitalize on the sudden controversial and infamous nature of CBD by selling inferior and potentially dangerous products. This combination of circumstances put Dee Dee on a mission to educate people on what CBD might offer them, as well as, provide safe products guided by the phrase “Quality, Integrity, and Knowledge Matter.” From there 502 Hemp was born.
