Meet the Founders

Scott and Ashley met in April 2013 and were married in May 2016, an e-harmony love story. They adventured/resided around Atlanta – from Midtown to Kirkwood to Decatur – before moving to Stone Mountain shortly after having their daughter, Cameron Rose. Ashley and Scott share a love for the Atlanta United, Excel spreadsheets, Disney movies, and Christmas. They are passionate about hemp and about building The Rose & Hemp. They want to set an example of how you can work hard AND enjoy your family, friends, and life!

The Inspiration behind The Rose

The rose is inspired by Ashley & Scott’s beautiful daughter, Cameron Rose. “Cameron has given our life so much hope, joy, and purpose. Rose is also a family name and signifies the importance and theme of family in the shop. & Hemp is, well, inspired by hemp. Which gives millions of people these very same feelings of hope, joy, and purpose. So, The Rose & Hemp means to us: Family, Inspiration, Hope, Happiness, and Healing. We hope you love it as much as we do.” ~Ashley & Scott
