At the February 13th meeting of the Daniel Island Club, Jennifer Thackston from the Charleston Hemp Company paid us a visit.  The Charleston Hemp Company is family owned and operated, and grows and sources industrial hemp plants from farms with organic growing practices to produce the highest quality cannabidiol (CBD) products on the market today. They are committed to not only educating people on CBD but also delivering pure industrial hemp extract and innovative industrial hemp products. jenny-newcrop-rs

Although not FDA approved, Jennifer shared with us there have been many benefits associated with the use of CBD such as: epilepsy, cancer, diabetes, nausea, inflammation and sleep disorder.

Some of the products CHC currently has available includes a salve, oil and lip balm.  They are South Carolina’s only fully verticalized, seed-to-shelf purveyor. They’ve grown from 4 employees to 16 in the last year and are currently aligned with MUSC to further their research on CBD products. Clearly CBD is making more and more news with it’s various uses and we’d like to thank Ms. Thackston for educating us on everything Charleston Hemp is working on!

In order to win this distinguished honor, a club has too accomplish a number of goals. The 2 mandatory activities lubs must achieve are: set at least 10 goals in Rotary Club Central and second, pay semiannual dues to RI on time in July and January. In addition to those, the club has to achieve multiple goals in the areas of: Membership Attraction and Engagement, Foundation Giving, Online Tool Adoption, Humanitarian Service, New Generations, and Public Image. It was truly a successful year put together by Past President Gray, his board, and the rest of club that chipped in and made it all possible. Way to go everyone!

Shelby with sponsor Pat Richards

Shelby is a Charleston native who enjoys staying active and taking on new experiences. She works in government contracting as a Management Analyst for a Venture Technologies company.  Shelby recently graduated in May 2017 from the University of South Carolina Honors College with a Bachelors Degree double majoring in HR Management and Finance and a minor in Chinese Studies. Her journey with Rotary started in high school when she participated in a Rotary Youth Exchange year to Switzerland. After finishing her year abroad she came back as a Rotex member where she has helped facilitate the RYE Inbound Training Weekends every year since. In college she was a member of Rotaract and served as Treasurer the last 2 years and filed for USC Rotaract to become an official 501c3 entity with the IRS. As a senior, Shelby won the Carolinana Award at USC for her service and leadership on campus and in the community. She is excited to continue her journey as a Rotary member actively serving the local Charleston community! It’s an excellent example of how Rotary International can impact individuals even at a young age as Shelby was in high school when her Rotary journey began.  Realizing her desire to serve her community and make it a better place with those experiences makes our club very happy to have her as our newest member.  Welcome Shelby!
