Maya Gilliam began her research a few years ago, connected with other growers and applied for her license to grow. In March, her first indoor hemp plants began to pop up. In June, her outdoor plants started doing the same. Now, she has 300 plants outside and 40 indoors. And she didn’t waste any time making her own CBD products, which is what she says sets her apart in the crowded hemp market.
She also believes that, "Vertical integration is the key".
