a team of visionaries

To be appropriately introduced to Akanna is to learn about the individuals who had the unique vision to start it in the first place. Let's take it back to the beginning. While sitting on a plane preparing to fly to a funeral, the idea was given to CEO Melissa Boston as what the team declared was "A Gift from God." At the time, she was CEO of another multi-million dollar Cannabis/CBD and essential oil company and had no plans to launch her own company.

Yet, a few weeks later, she recognized a shift in the Cannabis/CBD market. So, she had the idea to create a company with a more exclusive focus on Cannabis/CBD. Once Melissa received the blessing from her company to pursue her new business idea, she first shared her plan with Phyllis Nash, her right-hand business partner, and the rest is history.

Akanna means "In the Hands of God." From its beginnings, Akanna has been driven and inspired by powerful energy. This dynamic team's business acumen and relentless drive allowed them to create a multi-million dollar cannabis CBD company in a few short months. In 2021 they introduced the Flat Belly Lifestyle, expanded their product line to include weight loss and detox products, and started their wellness coach certification program. In 2023, Akanna added its travel membership and forex/crypto training program.

Akanna has an innovative, dynamic, diverse, and experienced team dedicated to changing lives worldwide. They provide an opportunity to own a fully equipped online wellness dispensary empowering individuals to participate in the trillion-dollar wellness and travel industry and the massive financial sector with revenues in the quadrillions.

Under the direction of the executive team, Akanna creates some of the highest-quality products in the world. By focusing on industry staples and the hottest trends like CBD, weight loss, travel, and forex, they're well-positioned to become a dominant player in the home-business arena. Even more, they aim to ensure long-term success and financial stability. And better yet, they are destined to make a global impact around the world.


Akanna designates 1% of all of our profits to help feed children, empower women and help communities around the world. We believe in the golden rule of treating others as you want to be treated. Our core values that drive the heart and soul of Akanna include Empower, Equality, Trust, Respect, and Excellence.
