My name is Annie Rouse. I entered the hemp industry in 2009 after writing a college paper. Little did I know that college paper would change my life, for better and for worse.
The paper took me on a journey to study for a master's in international environmental policy and business administration with the end goal of changing the policy on hemp and establishing a business to better our world.
My graduate school professors convinced me to apply for a Fulbright Scholarship in Canada, with the topic of assessing hemp's environmental impact. In 2013 I received the scholarship and moved to Calgary, Canada where my life would change forever. It made my love for the hemp plant stronger than ever, but more so, it was one fateful hike in Banff National Park that altered my life's course. I don't remember the tick but I remember the rash.
Two years later I was diagnosed with Lyme Disease, an incurable disease that would hinder my well-being to massive degrees. I'm not one for being defeated, so I began to research everything I could to overcome the challenges that laid ahead of me. The more researchers, medical professionals, and pharmacists that I conversed with, the more treatments I uncovered.
But at the end of the day, the one thing that has helped me maintain my active lifestyle is what drew me into Canada and Banff National Park to start -- hemp.
