Everything started in 2001 with Ewa Melania Gryt, the founder of Dobrekonopie.pl and one of the pioneers of the hemp business in Poland. Ewa was fascinated by the topic of the forest ecosystem and one day she watched a documentary about the incredible potential of using hemp straw to make paper.
The beginning was extremely difficult because hardly anyone in Poland remembered how to grow hemp. But Ewa was relentless! She arranged meetings with farmers in agricultural advisory centers and spoke about hemp until she finally convinced them to take up the challenge. Shortly after that, a period of prosperity followed.
Between 2011 and 2015, together with our research team, we carried out a project co-financed with EU funds, which created a semi-technological line for waste-free production of hemp cellulose for the paper industry.
The next success was the opening of the first in Poland online store and wholesale offering products from hemp seed, including CBD extracts, CBG, and food products made from the seeds.
Today we are one of the leading producers of hemp in Poland and one of the very few who grow and process the plant in this country.
