Founder of Black-Owned Organic Hemp-Derived CBD Brand Launches Startup Academy for Aspiring Entrepreneurs

Nationwide — It’s not often that an emerging industry arises which is why Holmes Organics Founder and CEO Cory Holmes decided to launch his cannabis business. The Farm Bill of 2018 brought with it the legalization of hemp-derived CBD. CBD is a powerful plant extract that has been used for medicinal purposes for thousands of years, not to be confused with the plant used to produce marijuana. It’s a product with all the medicinal benefits of marijuana, and zero risk of getting high—making CBD legal in all 50 states.

“I grew up in poor neighborhoods with gun violence, having stress and anxiety as a part of my daily life,” said Holmes. “In college, I suffered from a few football concussions. In 2017, I was randomly shot at while driving—and the PTSD didn’t set in until about a year later.”

Pharmaceuticals were the most common treatment for my symptoms, but they come with harsh side effects and the high risk of addiction. This made side-effect-free CBD the better alternative. Also, an option that delivers faster and more powerful results.”

Holmes started exploring hemp-derived CBD, but quickly found that few products worked. The industry is highly unregulated, not all products are pure, and quality can vary from one batch to the next. He saw an opportunity to do better and he jumped. His products are pure, organic and the processing is fully transparent. His line includes a full range of CBD products including a tincture, supplement, targeted pain relief salve, bath bomb, haircare, products, and dog treats—with more natural ways to heal on the way.

“Holmes Organics is so much more than my business,” said Holmes. “It’s my way to help people heal and thrive—naturally. Helping people is what I love to do which is why I am taking things one step further by launching my proprietary startup program.”

In addition to his organic CBD, Holmes is excited to announce the launch of his CBD Startup Academy. His goal is to teach aspiring cannabis entrepreneurs how to get their business off the ground.

This proprietary program includes lessons and strategies he learned to launch his successful business, including:

● Cannabis Business Entity Setup
● Choosing Reputable Distributors
● 3 Low-Cost Business Models
● Marketing Your CBD Business
● Building Your CBD E-Commerce Website
● And More
