About The Legal Hempire
The Legal Hempire is a Hemp & Wellness store founded by Gemma McKay. The name came from her greatest supporter and cheerleader in her ventures, ‘Uncle Jeff’. Loved by all who crossed his path and a true ambassador of our beloved Cannabis plant, we want his legacy to live on.
Located on Liverpool’s much loved Lark Lane, Gemma is currently working hard to open up during the UK lockdown, to offer as much natural help, support, advice & healing on a face to face basis.
Gemma has a depth of knowledge about the cannabis plant that comes from her roots.
“I grew up in Jamaica, around a family and community that understood and made good use of cannabis’s potential as a healing plant.”
From this, Gemma created a CBD brand specialising in skincare, Cannabina. In this sense, Cannabina is a culmination of a lifetime’s knowledge, experience and interest in a much-misunderstood natural substance.
“It’s only relatively recently that CBD and cannabinoids have caught the public imagination, but the positive health properties of non-THC hemp have been a part of my upbringing. For me, being able to be involved in this feels totally logical and instinctive.”
Gemma’s route to The Legal Hempire has been very much a personal one, driven by both her own upbringing and issues she has had in her own life.
“I know that things can get tough, mentally, and also what it takes to find ways to heal yourself. Healing should be built in to how we live much more naturally, and CBD and other plant medicines have so much to offer when it comes to both physical and psychological healing properties.”
Gemma wants her customers to be able to benefit from the knowledge and insight she has gained, and used, in her own life.
