Jessie Kempf’s journey with medicinal cannabis began when she relocated to Orange County four years ago and took the California bar exam while undergoing chemo for an autoimmune disease. Upon asking the gentleman next to her what area of law he wanted to practice, he replied, “I want to be a cannabis attorney!” By end of the exam, Jessie had applied for her medical MJ card. She was soon leading the double life, working as a real estate attorney and helping CBD and THC companies on the side.

Jessie would ultimately join forces with Dena Putnam; their first product line, “Mend,” features high-dose, full-spectrum CBD tinctures blended with select terpenes and herbs (and is also available in a THC-version). Prior to moving to Laguna Beach, Jessie received her B.A. (History), B.A.M. (Piano), and J.D. from the University of Texas at Austin and began her legal career with Skadden, Arps in Manhattan.
