Amandine on the Importance of Finding your People 

We are the sum of the five people we spend the most time with, and when you’re running a conscious business, you want to be particularly intentional about who you’re spending time with. Not only that but the challenges of the entrepreneurial journey mean that you need people who will be able to understand and support you as you grow into a business owner.

Aline de Angelis on the legislation surrounding coffeeshops in Amsterdam

Despite being world-renowned for its coffee shops, Amsterdam does not have a very friendly policy towards the local industry. It’s a world of ever-changing regulations, restrictions and stigma – but one coffee shop owner definitely still feels it’s worth it!

Aline co-owns one of the only organic coffeeshops in Amsterdam, La Tertulia, with her mother. Women-owned, and women-run, La Tertulia is unlike any other coffee shop in the city. The feminine vibe and high-quality organic bud will transport you. It’s possibly the only coffeeshop you could see yourself on a date in, surrounded by greenery and crystals – it’s a must-see if you are ever in Amsterdam.

Amandine on Cannabis Legislation in the Netherlands 

Despite the globally held belief to the contrary, cannabis is not in fact legal in the Netherlands. And thanks to pretty confusing laws and attitudes around it, many consumers in the country are aware that engaging with cannabis means engaging in a rather grey area, legally speaking.

Hannah Wenn on the UK CBD Industry and its challenges

Hannah Wenn joins Amandine to further the discussion around the Cannabis Industry in Europe. With a specific focus on the UK CBD industry, Hannah shares her story and own experience, including powerful learnings and tricky challenges. 

Hannah is the co-Director of award-winning UK CBD brand Hannabis, cannabis advocate, mother of 2, chronic illness warrior, and CBD beauty wizard. In one year she has taken Hannabis from the stage of idea to a recognised and respected name in the industry. She is committed and dedicated, she says she’ll love a day off but as soon as the business is done and the kids are in bed she misses the madness; which is usually when the new ideas and plans get going!
