Single Mom Leaves Corporate America And Starts A CBD Business With Investment Portfolio

Today we’d like to introduce you to Merranda Hanks.

It’s an honor to speak with you today. Why don’t you give us some details about you and your story. How did you get to where you are today?

Well, I started this journey over 5 years ago. I flew to Colorado monthly. After my 1st trip, I researched CBD and the benefits from it. Later, I established relationships with hemp-derived growers, manufacturers and distributors. Early 2020, my monthly trips ceased. Corporate dismissed me and many others. Three weeks later, my dad passed away. I didn’t get a chance to assist his health or prolong his life. I was devastated. However, I decided to turn my pain into purpose. It was personal. I want to assist others that can benefit from CBD. I know that CBD products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease including dementia. However, there are several benefits that could assist your overall health and wellness.

It took time to get everything approved and complete. I used my investments to get the job done. I finally launched CBD Troubleshooters in 2021.

I’m sure your success has not come easily. What challenges have you had to overcome along the way?

Woooo (deep breath). I had many challenges but 2020 was full of obstacles. As I stated previously, my dad’s death. After he passed away, I was involved in an auto wreck the week of his funeral. The following week, the Covid Shutdown. In August, my hometown, Lake Charles, LA was slammed by 2 major hurricanes (Laura and Delta) back to back. Approximately, 95% of the city was damaged or demolished. Lake Charles has not recovered yet. At that time, my mother evacuated to stay with me until the house was complete (still here). The interior of the entire house had to be demolished.

Also, I am currently dealing with my injuries, surgical procedures, complications and trauma from the wreck as well. It’s been a crazy journey. But 2020 was unbelievable.

Let’s talk about the work you do. What do you specialize in and why should someone work with you over the competition?

At CBD Troubleshooters, we provide high quality hemp-derived products to the market. Every single batch goes through rigorous third-party lab testing. We are transparent. Our lab results are online at We also utilize nanotechnology. Our competitors’ hemp oil particles are between 100 and 1, 000 nanometers in size. Our particle size is appoximately 25 nanometers. This small size leads to much more effective absorption. This is the future for CBD.

What’s your best piece of advice for readers who desire to find success in their life?

Commitment leads to consistency. Consistency leads to discipline. Always believe in yourself. You have the ability to accomplish and manifest anything that you desire. Stay focused. Keep going. You’ll complete the mission.

Speaking of success, what does the word mean to you?

I define success as achieving something that you are passionate about. The happiness from the success puts great joy into your soul. It also means that you were resilient and faced adversity to accomplish your goal. Mission complete.

What’s next for you?

Evolve and elevate the brand to new heights in the 21st Century. We are striving to become the best CBD brand in the U.S.A. After that? Globally.
