Our History

Wake Forest Hemp owners, Angelo and Elizabeth Belardo are happy to bring CBD solutions to Wake Forest, North Carolina. Opened in 2019, we wanted to bring a way for people to find alternatives to heavy medications and illegal substances. Far too often, solutions provided to us for ailments and mental health issues are drugs that are more for profit and not to solve the issue. Or maybe there are times where what is prescribed is simply not working. In our on personal lives, we found CBD to be a solution that has helped us and our loved ones in that very situation.

Our passion is to share the same success we have had with using CBD to our local community (and throughout the US). Examples include helping older individuals relieve pain where prescribed drugs did not work. Long time Vets not being able to sleep well finally get well deserved rest. Or even helping people with PTSD that suffer from social challenges find peace within themselves to comfortably go outside their home. This ultimately motivated us to branch out on our own and start our business.

Outside of our downtown store location, Wake Forest Hemp proudly works within the community. We are Wake Forest Chamber of Commerce members, Downtown Business Alliance of Wake Forest and connect with our smaller communities in our personal lives. Being here in the Triangle area, we hope to build a legacy for our child and establish long term roots.
