Carrie Mapes and Patty Pappas go way back – twenty years ago the duo met when their oldest children started preschool. Friends ever since, Carrie and Patty have always been adventurous and open-minded – but it wasn’t until they became empty nesters that they decided to explore local dispensaries.
Quickly, they realized that cannabis was uniquely suited to address many of the challenges they experienced during menopause. Patty and Carrie searched for a single product geared to address these challenges, but there was nothing in sight. Naturally, their problem-solving instincts lead them to take matters into their own hands – by building their own product from the ground up.
Cannabis. Vaginal. Suppository. Some might read those words and think “crazy talk”, but for Carrie Mapes and Patty Pappas these same words represent the future of women’s wellness. With age came the freedom to think and act without considering the judgment of others. The empowerment of age has provided Carrie and Patty with the confidence and wisdom to build something meaningful. The skills and lessons they have learned as mothers, wives, and leaders in their communities are now applied to the world of cannabis and business.
Carrie’s creativity combined with Patty’s attention to detail make them the perfect pair to spearhead a movement to educate women about menopause and the non-psychoactive use of cannabis for wellness at any age. Carrie and Patty founded Hello Again in 2019, after extensive research and development. The duo is committed to offering solutions for women to improve both mental and physical health and feel like themselves again.
Their grandmother’s tolerated, their mothers medicated, and they CREATED. Hello Again!
