We heard that Prohibition Creamery had a CBD ice cream flavor, so we knew Ministry of Hemp had to go check it out!
Owner & founder, Laura Aidan, told us about how she discovered CBD and why she decided to make a CBD ice cream! We also got to try the flavor, “Afternoon Delight.”
In our new spotlight series we are going to visit places and people within the hemp industry!
Our first stop is the Joy Organics Austin store. We got to talk with owner Danielle Cearbaugh and get some insight into what Joy Organics is about and what she wants you to know about buying quality CBD. We also got to try Joy Organics’ CBD Energy Drink, which comes in a delicious “Happy Berry” flavor.
