Calum, Rebecca & Mylo (The Wee Hemp Dog)
An adventurous, out going small family unit, Wee strive to bring out the best not only in each other but the people we surround ourselves with.
Wee are Calum, Rebecca & Miss Mylo (Woof Woof). Wee have have been married for just over 3 years but have known each other for 20 years.
Friends for the first 15 years Wee enjoyed snowboarding in the winters, socialising within our various & large group of friends, shared similar interests & views on life. Wee got together in late 2014 and were married by October 2015....Wee didnt hang about....
Why Wee CBD ?
Wee created The Wee Hemp Company because Wee were tired of the mainstream approach & the side effects that came with it.
Mylo - The Wee Hemp Dog
The most important member of the household....or so she thinks.... Mylo has character by the truck-load. Occasionally demanding & always on the hunt for a treat, she is the perfect Wee companion. She has been by Rebecca's side through some major surgeries, an absolute rock & inspiration. Every weekend she drags Calum out into the Scottish hills for adventures, no valley too deep, no mountain too high.
Rebecca is a social butterfly, she can connect with anyone on any level. A real free spirit who cares a lot for humanity & animals alike. She has many goals in life & one of them is to leave this world in a better state than when she came into it.
Since the age of 5, Rebecca has suffered from Crohn's Disease, a inflammatory bowel disease that affects over 115,000 people in the UK alone. Crohn’s Disease is a chronic condition that causes inflammation of the digestive system or gut. It can affect any part of the gut, though the most common area affected is the end of the ileum (the last part of the small intestine), or the colon. Crohn's does not discriminate, it affects people of all ages, including children. Rebecca's body has been bombarded with medicines, pain relievers, antibiotics & has had 4 major abdominal surgeries as well as a host of other various procedures. In late 2016 Rebecca was then diagnosed with Fibromyalgia Syndrome (FMS). Fibromyalgia is also a chronic condition that causes pain all over the body. As well as widespread pain, people with Fibromyalgia may also experience: increased sensitivity to pain, fatigue (extreme tiredness) muscle stiffness, cognative impairment & function.
Rebecca being the strong independent woman that she is said “fuck that!” I'm not having 2 chronic long-term conditions and started to take matters into her own hands.
She started looking into her diet, her way of living & her approach to life. She changed her diet and began to eat healthier more nutrient dense foods, she began supplementing & started on a path to a more holistic way of living in her day to day life. As she was making all these drastic changes to her life, Calum in early 2017, suggested she try using Cannabis CBD supplements after hearing an ever increasing amount of evidence on CBD's healing capabilities.
Today, Rebecca is completely off pharmceutical drugs and is back to living an active lifestyle. In January 2018 she joined our local gym and has been training with Calum 3-4 days a week, something she never thought she would have the energy for just 6 months earlier.
One of our Wee Family goals in the last year was to explore our beautiful Scotland on foot together with Mylo, so far Wee have exceeded our own expectations, not even 2 chronic long-term conditions can hold this Wee Family back.
Outgoing, fun loving & again free spirited, Calum can usually be found in the hills of Scotland with Mylo hiking come rain or shine. Calum loves nothing better than getting up at the crack of dawn, loading up the car & heading out to see this beautiful country of ours.
Calum used to work offshore in Angola & lived in Abu Dhabi. Coming from Aberdeen, the oil capital of Europe, this career path is well trodden. In 2015 he was made redundant, a familiar story to many in the industry, and decided he no longer wanted to work for a big multinational corporation. Working for an oil company never sat well with him, the damage being done to the world through the oil industry really took its toll on his conscious, he wanted to be part of the solution, not the problem. Being made redundant was the Wee kick up the arse required to make the necessary life & career changes for a more fulfilling life....and here Wee are.
The symptoms range from mild to severe and can change over time, too. However, the most common are:
Abdominal pain and diarrhoea
Passing of blood in the stool
Tiredness and fatigue
Feeling generally unwell or feverish
Loss of appetite and weight loss
Anaemia (a reduced level of red blood cells)
Poor sleep quality
Cognitive problems ('fibro-fog')
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
Wee do not claim any medical benefits for CBD products, but if you have found yourself on this page we can safely assume you are a conscious consumer, aware of CBD & how a holistic, natural approach to life can make ALL the difference.
