Al is the lion behind the whole show. Hemp Store was Alex’s vision born from years of loving and investing in Hemp as a sustainable solution for our planet. He’s pretty humble about it, but the rest of us are sure he’d have an answer to any question you have about Hemp. He’s a hard man to catch, juggling work, parenting three incredible kids, and keeping a firm foot on the frontlines of Hemp expansion, but when you do it’s a pleasure to bask in his calm and soak up some of his knowledge.
Rising up from District 6, Capetown, from the foot of Lions Head and Devils Peak we welcome our newest team member, Lesley! Lesley started with us mid 2023 and every day is a blast. She’s a front-of-house extraordinaire with a wealth of knowledge on natural and alternative living. You’ll find Lesley and her wicked sense of humour in-store throughout the week.
Our amazing manager Chelsea is at the heart of the Woy Woy store. She takes care of everything, especially our customers.

Chels started working at Hemp Store late 2019, and is also a parent, massage therapist, artist and avid traveller
The one behind a lot of what you see on this website. Dawa started working at Hemp Store late 2019 and discovered her knack for writing copy and all things website on the job.
