Introducing Anastasia Romanova, Co-Founder of The Organic Cannabis Cultivation Brand Hemuly


Hemuly is the newest, 100% organic, cannabis cultivation brand focusing on delivering a high-quality, eco-friendly, and consumer-centered product. Hemuly is particularly focused on cultivating top tier cannabis products, strategic brand partnerships, and running a completely organic operation.

Co-founded in 2019 by Anastasia Romanova, Hemuly utilizes industry standard equipment and techniques in order to grow some of the best cannabis for the most respected brands and products in the space. Focusing mostly on indoor cultivation in California and Oklahoma, Hemuly understands that their business is only as good as its cultivation techniques are. This is precisely why the company takes pride in their cultivation process.

To this point, Hemuly created their own LED lights, Hemuly LED lights, in order to preserve energy while simultaneously maximizing the growing and cultivation process. As a completely organic organization, Hemuly never uses any pesticides or herbicides in their garden. Moreover, Hemuly uses 100% organic soil consisting solely of organic matter, as the company uses old leaves and stems as compost material on site. Of course, Hemuly feeds their cannabis plants 100% organic plant food. Further, the company’s irrigation system is created in a way that is designed to use as little water as possible and leave as little waste as possible as well.

Hemuly is not only committed to running a completely organic operation, it is also committed to pushing the standards of the industry closer to its environmentally friendly stance and values. Consistently standing up for what they believe in, the Hemuly team has even turned down partnerships with other companies and brands simply because they use plastic in their packaging. To further make a difference and push the industry forward, the brand is committing to donate 20% of their revenue to charities and philanthropic organizations focused on helping kids in need, helping prisoners who have been arrested for cannabis use, and helping animals.

Further, co-founded by a female immigrant, Anastasia Romanova, Hemuly is all about building up other female-led and immigrant-led companies in the industry; Romanova intends to create a community of other female founders and entrepreneurs in order to provide a space for support and inspiration.

As the Hemuly brand continues to grow its following of loyal customers, partners, and fans — as well as its market share — the cannabis cultivation company has plans to expand its offerings in the future. In line with their eco-friendly stance, Hemuly has plans to utilize the entire cannabis plant, without wasting anything, for these new offerings. Specifically, the cultivation company is exploring hemp-based clothing as well as hemp-based accessories among other ideas.

Despite only being two years old, Hemuly is already making a name for itself by highlighting its eco-friendly values as well as with its industry standard cultivation techniques. Despite their thriving cultivation business, Hemuly is finding a niche market with their ability to influence other companies to adopt more environmentally friendly business practices and goals.
