a part of our series about entrepreneurs who transformed something they did for fun into a full-time career, I had the pleasure of interviewing Paul Benhaim, Founder & CIO of Elixinol. Paul is one of the most respected pioneers in the hemp industry, having been involved for over 25 years. Paul founded Elixinol alongside Gabriel Ettenson, Arthur Jaffee, and David Newman in 2014 with the vision of providing the highest quality products backed by research and delivering a world-class experience to consumers. Paul pioneered the development of many other products made from hemp; including his first commercial endeavor — a nutritional bar made from hemp in the UK, which offered the perfect ratio of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. This led Paul to starting the production of Hemp Foods, including Hemp Foods Australia, an industry-leading brand sold under numerous labels throughout the world. Hemp Foods Australia continues to introduce the highest quality of hemp food products available such as the recent Ground Hemp Burgers — a frozen plant-based protein product. Paul has pioneered the development of many other products made from hemp and has shared many of his findings in the nine books and mini-guides he has authored: Modern Introduction To Hemp, H.E.M.P.- Healthy Eating Made Possible, Growing Hemp For Profit, Building A House From Hemp, Hemp Textile Business, Hemp Fuel Guide, Hemp Paper Guide, Hemp Body Care Guide and Hemp Plastic Industry.” – Phil La Duke, Authority Magazine
