Our story

Throughout his college years on the Faculty of Economy and Tourism “Dr. Mijo Mirković”, the University of Juraj Dobrila in Pula, he had found his interest in Entrepreneurship and Microeconomy, with focusing on making his own brand of hemp products.

„At the time, my father was battling cancer and not only Medical Cannabis was out of the picture in Croatia but also it was impossible for my family to find quality CBD products in Croatia that we could have used for treating my father. After he passed, I made my life mission to do whatever is in my power to grow cautiously selected plants and create the finest products so that other people could have the means for healing and a proper therapy.“

This was a kickoff for planting the first 8 hectares with hemp in the first year, with scaling to more than 200 hectares only four years later. His family company was the first in Croatia to retail CBD products which are made of hemp that is grown and processed in Croatia.

In addition, he is a co-founder of Croatian Hemp Association “KrONOPLJA”. The association has managed to introduce Industrial Hemp to the public and pushed the legislation, allowing farmers to use every part of hemp plant instead of only hemp seeds. This has led to building multiple infrastructure sites for growing and processing of hemp.

He has coordinated many research projects in Croatia with the Agronomy Faculty in Zagreb and Advisory Service for agriculture in Varaždin, in order to share his knowledge and experience and to establish a stable alternative for Croatian farmers.

Throughout years he has focused on building B2B alliences within the hemp industry and improving all parts of the production and the quality of products through constant scientific research and regular control.
