Our Team

Nancy Roberts


With a career spanning over four decades, Nancy Roberts has been a driving force in the world of retail entrepreneurship within emerging industries. Her journey began in the 1980s, when she opened the first organic and hydroponic garden center in the Southeast. New Earth Organics and Hydroponics became a thriving hub for innovative gardening practices under Nancy’s leadership, until it was sold in 2018, leaving a lasting legacy in the industry

As an early pioneer in the field, Nancy’s influence played a pivotal role in shaping the growth of the cannabis industry.

In 2015, Nancy’s passion for natural wellness led her to become the first business member of the Kentucky Hemp Industries Association. Eager to embrace the potential of the hemp market, she launched New Earth Hemp Solutions.

In 2018, Nancy rebranded New Earth Hemp Solutions, giving birth to One Love Hemp Dispensary and Distributing. Nancy’s dedication to quality and integrity was reflected in the exceptional products offered by One Love, and led her and her partner Jana Groda to embarked on a new venture with Gummy Girl—a unique line of vegan, terpene-infused gummies and edibles. This innovative brand captured the hearts of wellness enthusiasts with robust terpene infusions and outcome focused formulations.

Nancy and Jana launched Myco Girl in 2022—possibly the first line functional mushroom gummies to be formulated with cannabinoids and terpenes. These carefully formulated gummies were designed to be used with microdosing protocols or as standalone products, catering to those seeking balance and natural wellness benefits.

Beyond her entrepreneurial endeavors, Nancy is a valued cannabis speaker, consultant, and educator.

Nancy’s commitment to making a difference goes beyond business. She has long been an advocate for autism awareness and support, as well as a devoted spouse to a Lyme Warrior, advocating for the use of plant medicine to treat the symptoms of Lyme disease. She is a Usui Reiki Master practitioner and is currently exploring the benefits of utilizing Reiki with microdosing and cannabis to assist with life transformation.

Nancy hopes that she can bring inspiration, information, and value to the plant medicine community by sharing her knowledge and experiences from the last 40+ years in the space!

Jana Groda


One Love co-founder and CAO, Jana Groda, has been a part of the Kentucky hemp movement since 2015. CBD became a game-changer for Jana, as she recovered from injuries sustained in a forty-five foot rock climbing accident. Since that time, Jana has developed a deep and meaningful relationship with hemp through her personal experience, academic courses, extensive study, participating in a Kentucky-based grow, obtaining a seat on the board of the Kentucky Hemp Industries Association (“KYHIA”), and being elected Vice President of the KYHIA.

As a Multiple Sclerosis and Traumatic Brain Injury patient, Jana has extensive knowledge of and experience with alternative therapies, including cannabis. She has been a cannabis educator since 2016, teaching classes in Louisville, Lexington and Campbellsville, Kentucky, and also in Franklin, Tennessee. Jana was selected as a speaker at the National Hemp Expo in 2018, and the Southern Hemp Expo in 2019, and in November 2019, the Foundation for Women’s Cancer invited her to speak at their Gynecologic Cancer Education Course. Jana holds a second level interpener certification from the Trichome Institute in Denver, Colorado, and she is a national consultant for CBD retail, distributing and formulation, and as a terpene expert. Recently, Jana earned her certification as a Culinary Nutrition Expert, greatly increasing her knowledge of food as medicine.

In 2018, Jana teamed up with Nancy Roberts to realize their dream of opening a dispensary in Kentucky. At One Love Hemp Dispensary, she can be found doing what she does best — “talking terps,” educating her customers, and spreading the love of hemp.
