Bee love. The garden is full of all kinds of bees flitting from sea holly to geranium, from lavender to rose.
I love that I can see every hair and detail on this sweet fellow.
All is as it should bee 💛
Hi everyone! 👋 Kayla here, founder of @lunavolta, popping in to share a bit about the voice and face behind our brand (me!). I was first introduced to cannabidiol (CBD) 🌱on my own health + wellness journey years ago when I was working in fashion in NYC. When I was unable to find a brand I trusted, and with a background in marketing and design, the seed was planted to build my own brand. -
After incorporating CBD into my lifestyle, I eventually left my job, my Brooklyn apartment, and took what little savings I had to spend 60 days of #vanlife exploring America’s National Parks. 🚐 This trip allowed me to shed my NYC skin and get back in touch with my inner child, who loves to explore, hike, and be with nature. After the trip, I spent another 4 months living nomadically where I wrote my first book on my experience ( #DaytripperTheBook), and eventually landed in San Diego, CA. 📚🌴
In CA I spent the next year diving into building @lunavolta, getting Cannabis Science Certified by @sativa_science_club, navigating the unregulated hemp industry to formulate high quality oil, and sourcing eco-friendly packaging that could give BACK to the Earth. ♻️
This photo was taken at #HustleHardRetreat, a retreat for women in the hemp + cannabis industry who mean business where I was lucky to attend last October. We spent an entire weekend on a beautiful ranch in Oregon diving into hands-on workshops and panels learning everything from raising capital, navigating marketing, trademarks + patents, to brand mission statements. I met so many amazing women who aim to make this an equitable, honest, and prosperous industry. 💪
It has been a crazy year and a half navigating this industry so far but I wouldn’t trade it for anything. Thank you for being here and joining me on my mission to bring consciousness and sustainability into the hemp and wellness world. ✌️♻️🌎
We officially launched last week on the Lunar New Year but there is much, much more to do. I am currently enrolled in @nyustern’s Corporate Sustainability satellite course where I hope to continuously improve our sustainability mission. -
Did anyone else think that there was a slight sighting of Spring in the air today? Or am I just telling myself this to feel better? It was crisp and sunny and all I could think about was my favourite thing in the whole world, bees! If you love these amazing wee guys as much as I do, I have a whole host of bee inspired gifts to indulge you!
