The Story of 502 Hemp

Dee Dee Taylor’s journey into the world of CBD and hemp-based wellness began with a personal mission to alleviate her husband John’s suffering from Grand Mal seizures. Frustrated with the 28 daily pills that seemed ineffective in managing his condition, John embarked on a journey to the western United States to explore the potential of CBD oils. He returned not only with newfound knowledge but also the skills to craft these oils. Dee Dee and John’s experiences would eventually lead to the creation of 502 Hemp, a trusted source of premium CBD and hemp extract products.

Dee Dee Taylor, co-founder of 502 Hemp, explains that the human body possesses an intricate system known as the endocannabinoid system. This system, often overlooked, plays a vital role in maintaining the body’s balance or homeostasis. “Our bodies were built to receive the cannabinoids and use them for whatever is off. It helps our bodies find their natural homeostasis,” she explains.

In 2014, John’s company, Commonwealth Extracts, became one of the pioneering licensed processors in Kentucky’s Hemp Pilot program. It was a crucial step toward providing high-quality Kentucky Proud hemp products for 502 Hemp. For Dee Dee, this direct sourcing offers distinct advantages. “Being a direct source for high-quality, pharmaceutical-grade Kentucky Proud CBD oil and other hemp extract products, such as 5mg THC, means I don’t have a middle man, so I don’t have to mark things up,” she says. Dee Dee’s close relationships with local farmers, her understanding of their cultivation practices, and her knowledge of the entire processing chain set 502 Hemp apart.

502 Hemp’s commitment to quality extends to the taste of their products. Dee Dee dispels a common misconception that flavor diminishes the efficacy of CBD oil. On the contrary, she emphasizes that flavor enhances the overall experience, making it easier for individuals to incorporate CBD into their daily routines. 502 Hemp’s products are renowned for their exceptional taste, a characteristic that sets them apart from others in the market.

Dee Dee’s passion for CBD and hemp wellness grew from her own experiences. In 2016, she personally discovered the beneficial effects of CBD in managing anxiety and depression. This revelation prompted her to shift her career and embark on a journey of education and advocacy. She began selling CBD at fairs and markets, eventually culminating in the opening of the 502 Hemp Wellness Center in 2018.

At 502 Hemp, Dee Dee has cultivated a boutique atmosphere that prioritizes exceptional customer service. Her primary focus is on educating customers and helping them find the right product to meet their unique needs. “We are here to educate and find the best product for our customers’ needs,” she explains. 502 Hemp offers free CBD consultations to guide newcomers in discovering the most suitable solutions. Importantly, Dee Dee’s commitment goes beyond mere sales. She ensures that no product is recommended if it poses any risk of drug interactions.

CBD oils have shown promise in alleviating a wide range of ailments, from cancer and Parkinson’s disease to Alzheimer’s, fibromyalgia, insomnia, and anxiety. Dee Dee recounts numerous heartwarming stories of customers who have found relief through their products. “I’ve cried with many of my customers because of what they are going through and the progress they have made,” she shares.

The positive impact of CBD isn’t confined to 502 Hemp’s customers alone. Both Dee Dee and John have experienced significant improvements in their own health. John, once burdened with two to four seizures per month, has now had just four seizures in the past 12 years, and he’s entirely off medication. Dee Dee herself has also successfully managed her health issues without medication.

Despite the challenges posed by the pandemic, 502 Hemp remained open, determined to provide support to those struggling with anxiety, depression, and other issues exacerbated by the crisis. Dee Dee Taylor reflects on her journey with pride and humility. “I built this business up from nothing, and while that’s something to be proud of, if my products weren’t helping anyone, it wouldn’t matter. I got into this business to help others and am so humbled, thankful, and grateful to be in this business doing just that.”
