We had the good fortune of connecting with Mariya Palanjian and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Mariya, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
Initially, I solved my problem to find a consistent and premium CBD oil that could help with my hemiplegic migraines. Once I solved my problem, I was on a mission to help others with similar issues.

What should our readers know about your business?
Roma Leaf’s main mission is to better the lives of customers by providing the highest quality of CBD products. We are a company that our consumers trust and our goal is to bring a little relief to one’s daily routine. All of our products contain 0% THC making them desirable to those who want the benefits of CBD without any psychoactive effects. We believe in providing the highest quality products from a company our consumers know they can trust. We also believe in educating as many people as we can to all of the health benefits CBD oil has to offer. At Roma Leaf, we take pride in creating products that are 100% organic, non-GMO, and lab-tested to ensure the highest quality. We provide people with an all-natural way to feel good both inside and out. We make your third-party lab test results available to you to ensure you have access to the exact contents of each product, which is not common of most CBD brands.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I would suggest Studio City, Tujunga Ave. precisely where Roma Leaf Boutique. Our store is surrounded by a few great restaurants like Aroma Cafe, Vitello’s, LBK PIZZERIA, where you can have brunch and then end your day at Universal City.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Woodbury University, where I received my MBA, has been supporting me for the longest time. I’ve also leaned on score.org for mentors with different expertise and was lucky enough to find a few fantastic and very experienced mentors like Catherine Bailey. She has been instrumental in our growth in the beauty industry.
