Hayden Johnson

For Hayden, the cannabis species has been a source of great promise and fascination. As Senior Copywriter at Hometown Hero, he's churned out many words on the subjects of hemp-derived Delta-9 and Delta-8 THC. And, he's an avid enthusiast of both. When he's not writing blog posts, taglines, press releases, or anything else cannabinoid-related, he enjoys painting miniatures, spending time outdoors, and catching live music in Austin, Texas.
