CBD is non-psychoactive, non-addictive, and non-toxic.
ARE THESE PRODUCTS LEGAL?
Yes! These products are produced under a federally approved program authorized under Section 7606 of the 2014 Farm Bill. The Kentucky Department of Agriculture has established this program, which allows for the production, manufacturing, and shipping of hemp products across state lines. Kentucky is one of only a few states operating in compliance with the federal guidelines, which allows sales as part of market research.
WHERE ARE THESE PRODUCTS PRODUCED?
All of our hemp is grown in Kentucky. We have growers in 23 counties throughout the commonwealth. All of our extracts are made in our manufacturing facility located in Louisville, KY. We formulate and package all of our products in house.
CAN WE SHIP THESE PRODUCTS OUT OF KENTUCKY?
Yes! Kentucky has developed a pilot program designed to test the viability of hemp as a cash crop. This includes the growing, processing, and marketing of hemp products; specifically including the export of Kentucky produced hemp products across state lines. This was reiterated with the addition of language to the 2016 Omnibus-spending bill by Leader Mitch McConnell, which states (in)
“SEC. 763. None of the funds made available by this Act or any other Act may be used- (1) in contravention of section 7606 of the Agricultural Act of 2014 (7 U.S.C. 5940); or (2) to prohibit the transportation, processing, sale, or use of industrial hemp that is grown or cultivated in accordance with subsection section 7606 of the Agricultural Act of 2014, within or outside the State in which the industrial hemp is grown or cultivated.”

We also have a THC free version for those that cannot risk consumption of THC.
