Four years ago, Kimberly Dillon, 40, joined Papa & Barkley, a cannabis wellness brand, as one of their initial employees. As chief marketing officer, Dillon helped grow the company from a startup in her colleague’s kitchen to a large enterprise generating nearly $30 million in revenue. Last month, Dillon, who holds an MBA from the University of Michigan and is based in Los Angeles, launched Frigg Wellness, a line of CBD-infused hair and skincare products aimed for women of every background. In addition to Frigg, she is also the founder of Plant & Prosper, a consulting collective focused on the hemp industry. There she and various partners coach clients on branding and marketing for their nascent cannabis and hemp brands. Right now, Dillon says her focus is on Frigg.
