Ella Anderson wants to help people.

“This is not a get-rich-quick scheme,” the owner of The Hemp Station in Chiefland said. “This is not that. We truly want to help people.”

The 44-year-old former law enforcer said she has always wanted to own her own business and contemplated opening a restaurant, but she said that when President Donald Trump signed the Farm Bill in 2018 that made CBD legal and “this year our governor signed it to be legal,” she decided to do her research and start her own store that features hemp and CBD products along with homemade jewelry and crystals.

“When they legalized the CBD, they stopped all enforcing and they notify law enforcement first,” Anderson said.

She said she is a “100-percent believer,” in what the products she sells can do to help alleviate pain and stress. “I use it myself,” she added.
