Meet the Team: Jonny Halpin

Jonny Halpin may be a familiar face to many of you, being the Assistant Manager of our iconic Capel Street shop.

With a passion for Customer Care,  he is the friendly face greeting our customers and is more than willing to offer advice on what products are best suited to your needs. 

“We get a lot of cool people coming through the doors at The Hemp Company who have plenty of interesting things to say and talk about, and I have also made some great friends through working here”. 

Jonny became interested in the hemp industry after discovering it while he was spending some time living in Canada a number of years ago. When he returned to Ireland a friend introduced him to Jim and the Hemp Company and the rest, as they say, is history!

Behind the scenes Jonny also has responsibilities that include managing stock, but his favourite thing to do is identify and research new products for us to bring to you both online and in store. With the hemp industry in rapid growth mode all around the Globe there are more and more new exciting products coming our way all the time.

“The best thing about working in the industry is the constant development that goes on within it from one year to the next. Different things are being discovered about the plant that blow me away constantly, also with past laws and restrictions being lifted around the world, there’s a sense this is one of the most exciting times to be working in the industry and that’s pretty cool!”

Jonny’s favourite product

CBD active +

“It’s one of the fastest acting oils we sell, really handy for a CBD pick me up in the mornings or after a workout/playing sports and dead handy with it being water soluble, put a few pumps into a cup of tea or water, knock it back and you can feel it within a couple of minutes. Never fails to impress me.”

Call in and see us in Capel Street and keep an eye out for Jonny, who is more than happy to help you find what you need.
