The future of Hemp is now.
Our client contacted us in 2018 about putting together a marketplace for hemp. This was a client we have worked on previous projects for in the past. He saw an opportunity with hemp, as it was just legalized by the federal government and its benefits were limitless. One of our first steps was exploring different ideas for the site and any barriers we might encounter.
One of the challenges was narrowing down all the different uses of hemp.
Hemp is in so many products that we had to narrow down what categories we would display on the site. We wanted the look and feel to use some variations of blues and greens as it would be representative of the site. The site would have a clean look and feel, so companies and users could navigate with minimal effort.
Working with Orqid was a pleasurable experience. From the very beginning, all the way through each step of the process, we were able to see our vision come together, piece by piece, until we had a full realization of our website.
Since this was a marketplace, companies and users would have completely separate user experiences.
Once we were finished with our wireframes, we moved forward with the development of the site. We built the site in PHP/MySQL and used Laravel to setup the framework. The Mapbox API, was used to populate precise real time location data for all of our companies that would be displayed on a map. The frontend was designed responsively for all screen sizes.
And in the end, we ended up with a clean, innovative website for the hemp industry.
Once the site was complete, the next step was bringing companies on board to add their products. Initial feedback was excitement as we were one of the first to introduce a website where hemp companies could post their products.
Over the past ten years, there has been a growing trend towards hemp products and the hemp industry as a whole.
The benefits of hemp are endless; the fibers from hemp are used for a variety of purposes, including food, medicine, beauty products, automotive, industrial, office products, gardening, farming, and much more.
Founded in 2018, HempNow is a progressive technology company with the dual objective of finding the best hemp products for consumers and providing a state of the art platform for companies to market and showcase their products.
