An owner of over two-dozen smoke shops

About Me

An owner of over two-dozen smoke shops throughout the Greater Boston Area, Joseph Girouard began paying close attention to the CBD industry and its potential in 2013. After many years of overseeing manufacturing and wholesale operations for a variety of CBD brands, Joe Girouard extended his hand further into the industry in 2020 by acquiring 1/3rd ownership of the Vangarde Group Hemp Farm, which spans 100 acres in Killeen, Texas. Under Joe Girouard’s administration, the farm has shifted its primary focus towards becoming the world’s premier source for hemp seeds, with a projected production of over 4.5 million seeds for 2021. Alongside this venture, Joseph Girouard founded and launched The Hemp Temple - an online retail store housing over a dozen CBD brands whose offerings amount to over 1000 products for every use case imaginable. As if these projects weren’t enough on their own, Joe Girouard also founded Accelegreen: a logistics technology company focused on propriety hemp-drying techniques allowing for harvest efficiency that the industry has yet to see. While Joseph Girouard may have stepped foot into the CBD arena a bit later than others, he believes that what we are witnessing is the very beginning; the best is yet to come and he’s ready to make his mark.
