Welcome to The Hemp Mine: Premium Hemp is our family's passion.
We know our hemp--from start to finish, seed to consumer. And that kind of care is what makes our products premium. We start with quality high CBD hemp genetics. These are grown naturally without pesticides on our family land where crops have been farmed for 3 generations. We carefully harvest our plants and hang them to air dry in optimal conditions ensuring terpenes and cannabinoids are well preserved. Then we extract full spectrum hemp oil at our state of the art, super critical CO2 extraction facility. This extraction method preserves all of the compounds from the whole plant that contribute to the "entourage effect"--terpenes, cannabinoids, flavonoids, and fatty acids. This is what we call FULL SPECTRUM. From there oil is ISO lab tested, formulated into product, and ISO lab tested again before being placed in the marketplace. We are a family of farmers, horticulturists, PhD scientists, designers, and creators. We have the experience and passion to create the products you can trust to start living your best life today.
