During the early 2000’s Joellyn was diagnosed with cancer. Each time she was diagnosed, it was a little worse than before. Her team of doctors preformed so many surgeries to keep it at bay, however, it kept coming back. Finally in 2008, they preformed a radical hysterectomy. She began to use cannabis as part of her treatment after the hysterectomy. She noticed she felt better, was more rested and able to enjoy foods again.
Due to the lack of availability, she began to make cannabis products for friends and family with hemp. She had the chance to have front row seats in watching people’s lives improve. She is not a doctor, nor can she diagnose anyone. She can just share with you information about your Enodcannabinoid System and how to nourish it.
With all that she has seen, she knew she had share the news with other people, she just wasn’t sure how.
In August, 2017, on a family vacation to Myrtle Beach, she passed a “4:20” store. There was a sign saying they had CBD/Hemp products and she was baffled. In disbelief, she went in to investigate. Sure enough, there were CBD/Hemp products for sale! She knew right there at that moment she would open a dispensary of her own. After many hours working with the Small Business Center at the local community college, she was ready to find investors. On 1/3/18, She received the funds from an investor and got the balls rolling.
And here we are today. My Green Room is a small company (LLC.) Right now, we just have the one location in Downtown Spindale, NC.
