Gratitude Friday XII: Farms, Friends, and Shared Meals

On this #gratitudefriday, we’re feeling grateful for community, especially the farmers who feed us and the friends who share food with us! Bobby, who manages the Blue Ridge Hemp Farm This week, we filled our plates with veggies and herbs from local farmers who devote their passion, knowledge, and labor to growing fresh, clean food. Thank you for dedicating yourselves to nourishing others, and for making our @cbdsuperfood meals extra delicious!

Gratitude Friday XI: Our Story

  A few weeks ago, we were interviewed for an article about the growing presence of CBD in Asheville businesses by our local paper, The Citizen Times. We are glad to have had this opportunity to share the value of CBD, the science behind CBD, and our mission of empowerment with the local community. Conducting this interview was also a valuable reminder of our story — where we came from, where we are now, and where we are going.   We are tremendously grateful for the ways in which Blue Ridge Hemp Co. has developed and the steps we took to get here. Today, we want to celebrate #gratitudefriday by sharing with you the story of our company.   As BRHC has grown and...

Gratitude Friday X: Thank You Rather Than Sorry

Authors: Will Oseroff and Danielle Schoen In my life, having a positive mindset has been the key to having a positive life, and the way that you speak has so much to do with your mindset.    By going into conversations with others with a negative mindset and speaking negatively, you set yourself up for negative conversations and relationships.

In the past, I was pessimistic, but I kept it to myself. I thought that there wasn’t any harm in thinking negative thoughts...

Gratitude Friday IX: A Thank You to Will

Author: Danielle Schoen Typically on Gratitude Friday, I transcribe while Will reflects on what he is most grateful for that week. This week, I decided to take the opportunity to write a letter of gratitude to him.   I ran into Will at a bar in Asheville about seven months ago. I recognized him from the Blue Ridge Hemp Instagram and decided, completely out of character, to run up to him, introduce myself, and ask if the company was hiring.  Throughout this whole conversation I’m pretty sure that I called him “the Blue Ridge Hemp guy.” A highly professional move.   Will was looking for someone to work in the store on weekends, and we met the following week to discuss...

Gratitude Friday VIII: Online Payment Processing Is Back!

Dictated By: Will Oseroff Transcribed By: Danielle Schoen One of the really big things that happened this week that I am enormously grateful for is the fact that we now have credit card processing back on our website. This is totally huge for us. We are always looking for new ways to streamline our processes and make them even more effective for even more people, and this is an incredible change. Let’s fill you in a little bit, because we know that this might not sound that exciting since we’re an online store and should traditionally have credit card processing. But it’s not that simple. Back in October, we had our credit card processing shut down. For two and a half years prior,...
