Seth Hyman with his daughter Rebecca Hyman
Imagine that your daughter has a life-threatening genetic disorder, and you don’t know how to help her. For Seth Hyman, the founder of Hempagenix™, watching his daughter Rebecca suffering from seizures every day made him desperate to find a solution.
Seth spent years researching alternative treatment options to help Rebecca, who suffers from a severe genetic disorder called 1p36 Deletion Syndrome. In addition to seizures, the disorder contributes to developmental delay, physical impairment, and other severe medical conditions. His search led him to studies that showed that Rebecca—and many other medically complex children—could get help from a high-CBD, low-THC oil extract specific to certain strains of hemp and marijuana.
Seth became dedicated to learning more about the benefits of hemp and cannabis not only for his daughter but also for those individuals who could benefit from the medicine. His hard-won knowledge led to the founding of Hempagenix™—and the creation of the company’s first revolutionary product, Cannanumb™.
A long-time advocate of the hemp industry and the benefits of plant-based medicine, Seth has become one of the most visible faces in Florida’s burgeoning medical cannabis industry. He has a strong background in the legalities concerning these products and was instrumental in developing a medical marijuana group for the law firm Kelly Kronenberg. At Hempagenix™, he has partnered with Jeffrey Steiner, an expert in hemp-based marketing who has represented these products nationwide, to bring innovative products to market for the benefit of those looking for an alternative to pills or other pain medications.
As pioneers in the hemp industry, Hempagenix™’s core mission is to forge a new path to health and wellness with one-of-a-kind hemp and plant-based products. Hempagenix™ aims to spread the life-changing benefits of hemp and nature’s plants by constantly developing innovative products that optimize their power.
