Accounts & Finances

Laurence Hughston has spent over 30 years in Sales/Business Management with 10 of those years as MD of his own Financial Services company employing almost 100 staff. Following the financial crash of 2008, the company was unable to survive, so his interest in environmental issues led him to work in the Solar Industry for a few years.

For the last 3 years he has been running a CBD business with his son Alex – selling high quality CBD products retail and wholesale. This has further enhanced his passion for all things Hemp. Laurence has a strong sense of social values and very much believes in the concept of Triple Bottom Line for business, where profit, people and the environment are equally important.

His desire to help others resulted in his setting up a CBD business with his father. Together they have built what is a highly successful family business – now serving thousands of clients across the UK.

Grower, Agricultural Support, Product Development

Dan is a fifth-generation farmer from North Norfolk, having lived and worked on a farm his entire life. After graduating from Harper Adams University in 2013, Dan decided to join the family-run farming enterprise which consists of 2,100ha and over 50 rental properties.

After growing the same crops year-on-year and experiencing first-hand the ever-increasing challenges and barriers with which UK farmers must contend in order to remain competitive, Dan started to look for a crop that was not only carbon-sequential and grown chemical-free but also supported biodiversity.

During this search, Dan discovered the growing demand for industrial hemp and was taken aback by the environmental benefits that can be created from arguably the most versatile crop on the planet, which has countless end uses. Dan planted his first crop this year (2020) and has a keen interest in creating new hemp products for the world to enjoy!
