If we reap what we sow, the best CBD
depends on the best farm practices.
Best: Dry climates, like eastern Colorado, where the soil is loose and well-aerated
Runner Up: Sandy soils with an investment in irrigation and fertilization
Not Ideal: Poorly drained or wet soils, and those with heavy clay content
• High-quality natural fertilizers
• No pesticides
• Manual weed control (herbicides aren’t currently labeled for use on hemp)
• Test! Test! Test! There are more than 20+ quality control exams that the soil, water and plants should go through

best practices on the farm
from the ground up
Healthy soil grows healthy plants. Ask companies if they adhere to these dos and don’ts:
DON'T: Use pesticides
Instead, promote natural predators like ladybugs and wasps to keep pests away.
DO: Test for heavy metals and contaminants.
DON'T: Use herbicides
Hemp is a natural cover plant, minimizing need for chemical weed killers.
done right, hemp helps the earth
Requires fewer chemicals: Hemp naturally suppresses weeds and decreases outbreak of insects and disease.
Reduces weeds: Hemp's biomass and canopy protection can shade outweeds, naturally minimizing growth.
Regenerates soil: Hemp rebuilds and conditions soil by replacing organic matter and providing airflow through its robust root system.
Conserves water: Hemp needs less water to grow than other plants, thanks to its ability to thrive in dry soils.
Reduces carbon in the atmosphere: Lush plants with lots of leaves, such as hemp, pull more carbon and return it to the soil.
While quality and transparency can differentiate any supplement brand from the rest, these qualities are especially important when it comes to hemp and CBD. Find out why in this video.
