Born in prohibition Missouri and designed specifically for Midwestern lifestyles, Hempsley is a living collection of information about holistic wellness techniques that support the endocannabinoid system.
Our mission is to empower you with knowledge so that you can begin taking better care of yourself and your loved ones.
Hempsley is meant to foster a safe space for anyone and everyone, no matter their background, to learn about natural approaches to wellness while guiding and supporting individuals through their own self-care explorations. We provide opportunities for you to learn, grow, and reflect so that you may become an expert on yourself.
Inspired by Prohibition
Hempsley’s founder, Kristen Williams, first became passionate about cannabis education back in 2013 when she saw a video about Charlotte Figi, a young girl whose some 300 grand mal seizures per week were being subdued with CBD oil. She found herself in distraught over the public's backlash on Charlotte's parents for treating her with cannabis, and wanted to help people understand how this plant works within the body to bring relief — and that using it didn't necessarily mean getting "high."
Since then, Kristen has been on a mission to help educate the general public about their endocannabinoid system and how various cannabinoid therapies can benefit people with all types of conditions. Over the past three years, she has collected experiences with yoga, Ayurveda, energy medicine, meditation, floating, massage therapy, nutrition, fitness, herbal medicine, aromatherapy, and more — all while exploring how cannabis can best enhance her self-care journey. Now, she is sharing what she's learned to help others make informed decisions while developing a personalized wellness routine that they enjoy.
Grow With Us
We know we're not perfect, and we don't expect you to be, either. Wellness is a lifelong journey, and we are always learning new things about ourselves and the world that will impact our understanding of personal health. Hempsley is simply here to investigate new approaches to wellness and relay what we learn so that your personal relationship with your body can continue to grow.
When it comes to cannabis information, most of what we know is based on personal testimony and experience since we have very little scientific research because of the federal government's Schedule 1 classification. Thankfully, there are now states conducting research and providing us with more and more information every day — but this also means that information we thought to be true may be disproved. We promise to do our best to stay up-to-date with these findings and communicate any pertinent new information to you, and we hope that if you see a mistake on our site you will let us know.
Hempsley would not be possible without the help of our family.
We would not be who we are without the support of our family, friends, and all the incredible random strangers we have meet on social media, at events, and in our daily lives. Thank you for your time, your hands, and all your help. It's you who inspired Hempsley to become a reality, and it's your random words of kindness and and encouragement that keep us pushing forward. We have endless gratitude for each and every one of you.
