House of Hemp (HoH) is a 100% woman black owned proudly South African company that was founded in 1998 by Dr. Thandeka R. Kunene based in Johannesburg, South Africa. 

House of Hemp is a member of the National Hemp Foundation (NHF) and has served as the Convener of the NHF’s Human Resource Development Group (in the first phase) and is currently the Coordinator of the NHF’s Private Sector Working Group. 

In 2010 House of Hemp became the first private company to be awarded a 6 year exclusive permit from the Department of Agriculture and the Department of Health to legally cultivate and process hemp in South Africa. The endeavour for a robust expansion into a new industrial market led to House of Hemp’s interest in the supply of hemp fibres and oils as well as related by-products (tow, biomass, dust, seedcake) for more sustainable industrial uses with significant and varied applications on a global stage.
