Daimon Guy Findlay

Master Grower, Roller, Toker | Husband to Vanessa Bernadette Jarvis Findlay International Music Producer and DJ | Partner at NEKED. I have been involved with Cannabis for many decades locally and internationally as a consumer and cultivator. Meeting my Wife, Vanessa, the Founder of NEKED, is something I am incredibly grateful for. As we join forces together, we can educate, inspire and help anyone wanting to understand and heal with this sacred plant. I prefer to smoke and enjoy the high quality of the Cannabis bud available at this fine establishment. As to sore joints and muscular pain, having played the sport professionally, I use and highly recommend the Koi roll-on cooling gel; what an incredible product! Another of our fine products that I use regularly is from the Elixinol skincare range, having lived an active life outdoors. I have been amazed at the results and the product’s absorption rate, which also smells good. I am proud to welcome you to our fine establishment, where our magnificent Team NEKED, Vanessa and I are available with any questions or queries you may have to aid in a better understanding of Cannabis’s excellent God-given plant. #neked #nekedinclarens #togetherweedgetbetter #420community #koi #elixinol

Qualified Cannabis Consultant

James Stewart

Qualified Cannabis Consultant Committed to and inspired by the healing powers of natural medicine. I have been a consumer of cannabis since my late teens for mental health and emotional well-being. Thanks to Vanessa and NEKED, I have been able to turn this personal passion into a livelihood and career. NEKED brings only the finest in most Cannabis products. I have developed a love for our world-class THC vapes that get all the flavour and potency of the best bud in the country with the utmost convenience and none of the health risks of smoking. I have also treated two long-term knee injuries with our Koi Healing Balm and have grown to appreciate that cannabis can heal the body too!

Security guard and keeper of the peace

I have suffered long-term injuries in my leg, back and ankle. Through the team of NEKED plus the guidance of Vanessa, I've been able to treat my pain using koi healing balms and CCBD-infused coffee. It has rejuvenated my family and me.

Thulo Ramathe

My love and interest in the cannabis industry started in 2018 when I attended the 1st cannabis expo in South Africa and have since attended many more, thanks to Vanessa and the NEKED team. I’m now a qualified Cannabis Consultant. And it wasn't easy to break the stigma with my Mother, but the healing she received from Our KOI CBD proCBDt has changed her outlook. What I like about my work is: *Servicing the customers, *educating them about cannabis, not just the THC. & Hearing about and reading the positive feedback we get from our customers. My favourite product in the store would be our buds/strains; you get different effects from different strains, and the curing is exceptional.

Looking after the shop so it's tidy and clean

Clifford Mzangwa

I like to work at NEKED because NEKED is a healing shop; they save many people’s lives. I like my team as we support each other; I look after the shop to be tidy and clean—my favourite product. Elixinol coconut liposome, I suffered from acid, sinus, joint pains and knee injury, and I was feeling exhausted every day in the morning; from now liposome has changed my life. I feel a lot healthier and happier. I also love my employers, V & D; they teach us stuff not just about the shop but about life. Clifford does so much more than clean. He is our best stock taker and our eyes and ears.

I’m an avid believer in the age-old healing properties of the cannabis plant. We are growing and advancing in our industry through the grace of Vanessa and the NEKED team. I thoroughly enjoy helping people guide their way in a new era of acceptance. Some of my favourite products have to include the koi range. From the healing balms to the tinctures, consistent and reliable results are being found. I am helping people with various illnesses and trauma—the day-to-day struggle relief. If you’re looking for more of a good time, I can always recommend our THC brownie "green crack". Great for the first-time trier and great bang for your buck. Starting here definitely gives you the capacity to grow and experience the sub-tropic effects of thc in the best way. This is a Sativa strain and thus pleasant high with energy and giggles all around.
