About the Owner

I am Matthew McDonald and I started Hemp2HealNC to educate and bring awareness of the health benefits of Hemp and CBD products.

At 11 months I was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy and extreme spasticity. The diagnosis meant I would have limited use of my right arm and leg, a weak eye, and delayed speech. When I was in middle school I had corrective surgery on my hips, tendons, and ankles. The recovery was a long road but when I fully recovered, I was up walking with the help of arm braces and sometimes a walker. By the time I was in high school, I only desired to be fully independent of anyone’s help.

Years of roughhousing, wrestling, crawling to get around, basketball, football and being active, took a toll on my knees and back. I’m not a huge fan of painkillers and doctor’s visits are expensive and tedious. This led me to look for alternatives. That’s when I found a hemp cream that provided quick pain relief. I began to use it after my workouts and soon my lower back and knee pain decreased tremendously.

Further research into hemp and CBD products was a game-changer. I found a multitude of products and learned that hemp vitamins and CBD oils were easily digestible and could be taken every day. It was then that I decided to start my own business to provide Hemp/CBD products to help those who are dealing with similar issues, headaches, arthritis and more.
