We’re thrilled to announce that we’re finally sourcing hemp from our home state of Colorado! This has been a goal of ours for several years, and the landscape has finally changed enough for us to make the transition.
As a Colorado company (founded in Boulder in 2012) we already had several good relationships with Colorado farmers that we’ve developed over the years, hoping for this day to come. The farmers we chose to partner with are providing hemp that’s nearly identical to what we’ve always used. And despite that CO doesn’t have quite the same soil richness as KY, the resulting extracts used in the final products have extremely similar cannabinoids ratios, terpene profiles, flavor, smell, color, texture and thickness to the extracts we’ve always used. We’re very proud to bring our operations fully local!
To celebrate the timing of this change, which has helped boost our efficiency and lower our costs, we’ve accordingly lowered our retail prices by a substantial amount.
Product update: products on the website that currently use Colorado hemp include CBD Isolate, Hemp Extract Capsules, and Hemp Capsules for Pets. All other products are in the manufacturing process using Colorado hemp and will be added back to the website when 3rd party batch results are ready. Hemp Classic and Classic 6X are also both still available on the site, but for the next couple weeks these two products still use our older hemp. When all products are back in stock and using 100% Colorado hemp, we will send an email blast to all our email subscribers with another update. Sorry for the inconvenience, and thank you for your patience as we pass through this slight manufacturing gap.
