Who We Are

Sankofa Wellness is a family owned local business. We are a health and wellness company. Our friendly, relaxed environment, and hands on customer services is what sets us apart.

We value our customers and take the time to educate them on our Hemp products.  

Our goal is to give our guest the best shopping experience imaginable along with the proper information to assist them in living a higher quality of life.

Sankofa’s Mission

Our mission is to serve our community and our guests. We are dedicated to providing customers with the best quality of CBD & Hemp Products at the lowest prices.

We will hand deliver products, especially to seniors, in the Douglasville area and expand as we grow. As we serve our community and help them avoid the unpleasant side effects of prescription drugs, we want you to know that we are your neighbors, our roots are local, and we support our hometown.

Our principal focus will always be our customers, but we have created a healthy environment for our associates which includes store owners and investors working in-store shifts.

The bulk of the products we sell will be Georgia grown. At present the bulk of our smokable product will come directly from a Hemp Farm in Mitter, GA. By 2024 we will be getting products from a Farm in Douglasville, GA.

Meet The Team

Leslie Bell

Founder – CEO

Co -founder Leslie Bell is an unwavering entrepreneur. She has owned and operated businesses for over 30 years, nightclubs, sports bar, janitorial services, restaurants,  water filtration company and more.  

During her entrepreneurship she watched her mother, siblings, and other family members suffer from rheumatoid arthritis and various side effects from medicines, oftentimes, far worse than the actual illness. This experience started her quest for healthier and more wholistic ways of treating chronic illnesses. 

After losing multiple family members to various illnesses Leslie decided that plant based healing was the road to a better quality of life. Her daily routine includes the use of hemp creams, cbds, and plant based energy drinks.  She is excited about the opportunity to share her experience,  knowledge, and natural way of living.

Anthony James

Founder – CEO

Sales & Marketing, Anthony James used painkillers for years. From 800 milligram Motrin to Oxycontin.

During the times he  used prescription medication it helped with the pain, but he also experienced depression, shortness of breath, sleeplessness, stomach pains, his face looked fat, and many times his back would break out with acne.  He continued taking the pills because it helped with the pain.

In 2017, while working as a National Sales Representative for Mattress Firm, he was in Las Vegas, when a co-worker introduced him to CBD Oil and Smokable Flower. After doing an independent investigation, he learned about the various cannabinoids and how they interact with the body.

“When i realized that you can smoke CBD and CBG and not get high, I knew this pain relief “natural plant thing” was for me and at that moment I knew it was something great to share”…
