26 Apr OUR KENTUCKY HEMP CONNECTION GROWS!
A few weeks back, I had the opportunity of driving to the Grand Opening of a new CBD manufacturer in Maysville, KY. Tucked in the hills just across the Ohio River, it was a gorgeous, scenic drive. Trees budding, colors of lavender and bright electric yellow foliage jetted out of the hills.
This is the rich Ohio Valley where tobacco has been grown for years! But that has all since changed and farmers are excited to go back to work now, replacing tobacco for industrial hemp. The manufacturer, which has an incredible 136,000 sq. ft site, has vetted and approved over 1000 farmers and is currently employing 450 full-time. The quality of the CBD extracted from the hemp will be exceptional. The mature female plants will be planted, cloned and then placed in raised beds of varying acreage to such farmers and finally, hand harvested. Their expertise lends itself to growing exceptional healthy, hardy plants (pesticide free, of course). Then, hand-picked which allows for as much of the trichomes (potent resin) to be drawn, gaining most of this valuable part of the plant for a superior product. Premium Hemp Co. is happy to be working with them as we try to offer our customers the very best!
Being Northeast Ohio’s #1 choice for hemp, we are extremely proud and grateful of our personal and working relationships with “salt of the earth” people in the farming and processing arena so we can continue to learn about this remarkable plant literally from its roots. Our carefully chosen products will be brought to you in the near future. Here are some pictures along the way!
