Cappie Pondexter – Renaissance Woman

People use words like greatness, legendary, revolutionary, genius, all too easily. Lavish exaggerated praises are bestowed upon anybody from influencers to celebrities. Pretty faces and clever marketers often get too much credit. Complimentary words are cheapened by overuse.

But rarely do you find true groundbreakers, renaissance people, people that have faced adversity with a vision in their hearts and souls with a destiny to overcome the clutter and rise to the challenge of greatness.

Now let me paint you a picture. A pretty woman with a 5 foot 9 frame plays basketball on the rough streets of Chicago against rough and tumble Men nearly twice her size.

It’s Pre-WNBA. There aren’t many females who play basketball.

So she tells herself “Im going to play with the big boys.” And she cuts her teeth in basketball playing against brawn that most men on this planet would be scared to play against. She challenges herself against their bigger and stronger physique, and plays tough enough to intimidate them.

Before she knows it, they stop playing her “Like a girl.” First they were humoring her. But now they know she is badass. They know they cant play her soft, because if they do, they will lose and be embarrassed “by a girl.”

And even when they try, they learn that loss is inevitable, because she is truly better than the boys on the street. She has the heart of a champion and a legend, and nobody is going to doubt her greatness and treat her like a second tier player.

She is so convinced that greatness awaits, that she gets a WNBA tattoo on her arm…. before there was a WNBA!

That’s called paving your own path with a powerful vision. That’s self-realization. That is the hallmark of greatness.

That is Cappie Pondexter, and after 13 years in the WNBA, she is known as one of the top players to ever play the game. 2x WNBA Champion, WNBA finals MVP, 7x All Star, 3x All-WNBA first team, WNBA top 15 player of all time, 4x Turkish National league champion (which she did on her off time while playing in the WNBA), 4x Turkish President Cup Winner, 2x Russian National league champion, 3x Russian Cup Winner, and Big East Rookie of the year… just to name a few of her accolades.

To call Cappie Pondexter a Renaissance woman is an understatement. To call her great you need to put an exclamation mark and emphasis on the greatness. Because she is truly the epitome of what makes legends and greatness.

And she’s only getting started.

When Fresh Farms CBD was looking for a female Champion to build a new beauty product line with, Cappie Pondexter was the vision of the perfect brand partner; the 21st Century Warrior Beauty Queen, battling it out by day, fighting with the best and winning. But looking glam and gorgeous by night. A girl that’s not scared to hold her own in this rough world, but sensual when the time is right.

Cappie’s always had an eye for entrepreneurship and her post WNBA life. She started a fashion line while she was playing with the New York Liberty. And she didn’t stop there, as her mind wondered to new innovative spheres.

“I was fascinated with the idea of doing a beauty line, and when I started talking with Vem Miller the CEO of Fresh Farms, we began brainstorming about products. He asked me ‘Cappie, what kind of products do you like?’ Being a nature first type, I told him how I use Argan oil as a part of my regiment. Its also got a nice story behind it, as it’s communes of women that run these businesses that create Argan oil in the spirit of female entrepreneurship.”

Argan oil is a plant oil produced from the kernels of the argan tree. It is totally natural, and has been used for skin, hair and nails. It is full of vitamins and minerals, and has become one of the most popular beauty products, simply because it is highly affective and totally natural.

“It was very important for us to create a product that was natural, and worked as well as the best and most expensive products on the marketplace” states Vem Miller, CEO. “As Cappie and I were researching, we found that most popular beauty products are full of synthetics, and don’t provide the skin with the type of nutrition that it needs. With many products, you are looking at temporary benefits rather than nourishing your skin, paving the way for long running skin health benefits.”

“When it comes to feeding our bodies, we want the best in nutrition. We want “Superfoods”. So we came up with this ideas of the ‘Superfood for your skin.’”

The result was to create a unique propriety formula of Argan CBD, a mixture of some of the healthiest vitamins and minerals for your skin.

  • Vitamins C and E from the CBD and hemp oil protect skin and hair against damage from the sun.
  • Vitamin C and E from the CBD and hemp oil also keep free radicals from damaging collage and elastin, which give skin its tight, youthful appearance. 
  • Vitamin B from CBD fortifies skin against damage.
  • Vitamin A and D from the CBD oil helps keep skin healthy looking.
  • Vitamin A is important for skin cell growth, which is essential for healthy young looking skin.
  • Hemp oil’s omega-3 and omega-6 help regenerate skin’s protective outer layer, leaving it younger looking.
  • CBD as an antioxidant is even more powerful than Vitamin C, E, A, or omega 3 fatty acids. It protects the skin from damaging free radicals, which is essential for young and healthy looking skin.

Packed with goodness for your skin, so you can keep your skin looking young and youthful without chemicals or surgery. Wrinkles meet their demise.
