Who is the Hemp Huntress?
Let's Get Started!
Beth van Elswyk is “the Hemp Huntress” and she is here to help, with an enthusiastic “Let’s Get Started!” Beth’s deep desire to help people profit from their plant-based passions led her to dive into the professional world of hemp and cannabis years ago, applying her decades of corporate and entrepreneurial experience to assist others in gaining a strong foothold in this ever-evolving industry.
Forming her first private company at age 16, Beth continued on the path of establishing, growing, and running businesses. Motivated by early successes—like creating the first ever woman-owned and operated Body Art establishment in the U.S. in the late 1990s, which is still in operation—she fine-tuned and grew her business skills, managing multi-million dollar national accounts for Panasonic. The recession of 2008 brought opportunity for Beth to return to her first love of full-time entrepreneurship, and she has never looked back!
The next several years began a whirlwind of gaining deep industry knowledge and key business and regulatory connections. This experience, combined with innate business acumen, an unwavering client commitment and a good sense of humor, has earned Beth the highly reputable success in the hemp and cannabis business sector that she now enjoys—and shares with others.
If your goal is to enter the hemp/cannabis industry in any professional capacity—retail, seed broker, small farm, small batch craft, fiber, or something no one has ever imagined yet—Beth’s knowledge, guidance, care, and business savvy can help you build, grow, and surpass your business goals.
