Dominican, Elvis ‘Pappi’ Edwards from Wesley/Calibishie has helped establish a company in Colorado which is making hemp become mainstream.
The company, CBD Care Garden, makes a full line of skin care products infused with cannabidiol, found in the hemp plant, which is a variety of the Cannabis sativa (marijuana) plant. However, unlike THC, cannabidiol doesn’t give a high. Marijuana is legal in Colorado.
Now the company’s products have been shortlisted to be in the bags of Hollywood stars who were nominated for an Emmy Award to be held next week.
“Everything I do is in my dream. I don’t do anything without a dream,” Edwards told Fox 31 in Denver in relation to the products.
When Edwards and his two business partners, Vanessa Marquez and Chris Elawar, set out to make the products, he said he knew it was going to be successful.
“I knew that it was going to be big,” he stated.
The company uses only organic material for producing its line of skin product and it started small in a loft in Denver.
Edward said he didn’t know that the company would excel so quickly and is happy its products will probably be used by one of his favorite actors.
“I mean my favorite actor is going to be wearing this. It’s amazing,” Edwards noted.
The company produces body wash and deodorant for men and women. It also created anti-aging lotion, lip balm, lip gloss and body cream.
“My dream comes true because I know it’s going to help people,” Edwards told Fox 31.
Edwards is also the inventor of the “Vaprwear” hoodies which are discreet apparels used to smoke in public.
