Diana was working as a makeup artist and hairstylist when her mom, Myriam, was suddenly diagnosed with an inoperable glioblastoma brain tumor in 2013. The prognosis was grim-she was given just six months to live. Diana fought through the devastation to begin her quest to save her mother’s life, whatever it took. Her openness to any solution led her to cannabis.
At the time, information about cannabis and its medical potential was scarce. Nevertheless, with guidance from a few social media cannabis groups and after doing her own research, Diana figured out how to make cannabis oils and began giving them to her mom.
As time passed, and as Diana continued to share her mom’s story on social media, the topic of cannabis and its healing effects on the body started to gain traction. In 2013, CBD tinctures were virtually unheard of-and nearly impossible to find. Diana saw an opportunity to make the oils widely available, and decided to create Myriam’s Hemp.
