FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

We at Florida Hemp Grow adhere to the USDA Organic standards and all of our hemp crops are grown free of chemical fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides. We work closely with certified third party laboratories to test our hemp and CBD throughout the production process to ensure accuracy in potency information, as well as checking for contaminants like pesticides, herbicides, heavy metals, microbes, mildew and mold. We use supercritical CO2 and subcritical ethanol methods during the hemp oil extracting process. These processes are supported by the FDA and have been given the GRAS (“generally recognized as safe”) stamp of approval. Having a clean, top quality product is our goal for customers.

Cannabidiol or CBD is just one of over 100 cannabinoids discovered so far in the cannabis plant.  CBD is widely regarded as the cannabinoid with the most medicinal potential. It is non-psychoactive and interacts with the body’s natural endocannabinoid system to promote homeostasis. Research on the medicinal effects has shown to be a potential therapy for anxiety, pain, inflammation, as well as epilepsy/seizures and reducing the dependency on opioid pharmaceuticals.

 

Florida Hemp Grow sources its hemp from the farmers in our cohort. Our affiliate growers meet our high standards for organic and sustainable production and are in compliance with all State and federal laws regarding hemp production with the 2014 Farm Bill.

Hemp refers to varieties of Cannabis Sativa L. that are non-psychoactive, meaning they contain less than .3% THC. While hemp and marijuana come from the same cannabis species, they differ genetically and are further distinguished by use and chemical makeup. Hemp can be grown for many uses; its fibers and stalks are used in clothing, construction materials, paper, biofuel, and plastic composites. The seeds and flowers are used in health foods, organic body care, and other nutraceuticals.  Here at Hudson Hemp we use our carefully selected plants to produce medicinally beneficial Hemp Oil Distillate and Cannabidiol CBD free of any contaminants and harmful chemicals.

We aim to not only sustain the life that exists in the soil but build new life and ecosystems to replenish and strengthen the land’s resources for years to come. We work closely with our partners who’s usage of sustainable and regenerative agriculture techniques focus on improving soil health and function as well as the sequestering and storage of carbon within the soil, to better ensure that our business practices reflect this ethos of a sustainable way of life.

With great year-round weather, excellent soils and growing conditions, Florida and other neighboring southern states are ideal locations.

Regenerative agriculture is an ecological principle that focuses on building and holding stores of carbon in the soil. Soil carbon captures vital nutrients within the soil and supports diverse populations of microorganisms responsible for the release and recycling of these nutrients. Carbon also improves the ability of the soil to capture and hold water. Soil carbon is key in creating resilience across an agricultural landscape. Better water and nutrient cycling means less dependence on outside inputs and less cost associated with improving our farm’s productivity.
