What is hemp?

       Hemp, also known as industrial hemp, refers to varieties of Cannabis sativa L., that contain less than 0.3% THC. This means, by definition, hemp can't get you high; it's non-psychoactive. Even though hemp and marijuana come from the same cannabis species, they are distinguished by use, chemical makeup, and cultivation methods.


Hemp is a fiber, oil, and seed crop that is deeply rooted

in American history, and has been utilized by our ancestors for over 10,000 years.

  HEMP stalk 

A look inside the cross-section of a hemp stalk

Hemp decortication is the process of physically separating the woody part of the stalk from its inner fibrous core. Once the decortication process is completed, the separated fibers are degummed to soften the fiber and lignin.

Hemp seed oil is rich in Omega 3-6-9 in an ideal ratio and is often referred to as "nature's most perfect oil." Hemp seed oil is a plant-based, sustainable alternative to fish oil as a source for Omegas.


Hemp seeds are a complete protein! This means they contain all nine essential amino acids that your body needs, but can't produce on its own.

There is only one source of fiber and it is plants.

Hemp seed shells offer both soluble and insoluble fiber,  which clean out your gut and promote gut health.


Each of our tinctures and rolls-on is formulated using Omega-rich hemp seed oil. Your brain and skin will thank you!


Although fish oil is a popular supplement for Omegas, fish don't even make their own Omegas! They obtain the Omegas from the plankton and algae that they consume!


 HEMP flowers and leaves 

this is where the cbd comes in

The flowers and the leaves of the hemp plant contain the plant's highest concentration of phytocannabinoids and terpenes. Hemp has both male and female flowers, typically expressed on separate plants. The leaves, like most plants, aide in photosynthesis and are less concentrated in phytocannabinoids and terpenes than the flowers.
