25 plus years ago a journey in hemp was started, I might just be the Forrest Gump of Hemp. This vision-quest started with  Hemp Plus Pretzels = "Hempzels™", pretzels to mustards flour to flower focusing on chemurgy from true Cannabis hemp.
It's quite a story and it's still hempening. The goal ; solidify a position in the cannabis hemp industry, building a franchise with synergy partners.    "BE UNDENIABLE" Thanks Joe Rogan! I'm trying!"

Hempzel's™ debut-history.

  • RIP Ralph Amato former CEO & President of No Problem, Inc. He financed and friends Mark Tucci of RYO & Muse "Uncle Don" Riese

  • Working with friends in Jamaica Ian and his wife Tamica were hand batiking hemp clothe that Ralph had local Mennonite ladies custom sew outfits.

  • Finding hemp seed meal the first hemp pretzels were created in Uncle Don's kitchen in York PA by his wife Jane.

  • The recipe changed with the introduction of shelled hemp seed thanks to Hemp Pioneer Richard Rose The Original Hemp Nut.

  • Over coming the ban on hemp foods, the financial collapse, creating a family and advocating for full decriminalization of Cannabis hemp this About page will highlight the history-our story about creating jobs, protecting the environment and growing Lancaster County Hemp. 

Fast forward to 2023 into 2024 and everything is changing but our mission is still the same, contract with our farmers, work with our partners, expand the network, develop more applications for True Cannabis Hemp; whether agricultural / industrial or medicinal.
