Senior Vice President, Special Projects
After initial conversations with Ms. Champion-Cain, Traci’s excitement with developing Cultivate was fueled by a desire to create a trustworthy and effective product! She was compelled to source high-quality ingredients from those with excellent standards and ultimately produce reliable products. This quest for ethical credible ingredients required Traci to hit the road. She wanted to see for herself the source of potential ingredients. She traveled to different Colorado farms to vet the cultivation, harvesting and processing of the hemp ingredients which would be used in Cultivate. The decision to work with the hemp farmers she selected is because of the caliber of their finalized ingredients and their farming practices. Her passion for this, shines through by her willingness to see and understand the process from seed to sale. Working closely with Gina, Traci said, “I have always been told that putting your feet in the dirt prior to making a decision is the best way to feel out your next move”. This learned knowledge was most pertinent to be put to the test, and so began the evolution of Cultivate.
