OUR STORY

As parents, when it comes to our kids health, we will do anything. Our son’s epilepsy diagnosis in 2009 and subsequent struggle with pharmaceutical side effects led us down a road of alternative treatments – ending ultimately upon CBD. The knowledge we discovered fueled our advocacy for our son, and others like him, with physicians and legislators alike. Our efforts blessed us with the opportunity to be the first to cultivate and produce CBD in Kentucky – ultimately resulting in a son now free from seizures and pharmaceuticals.

Seven years since our inception, studies and anecdotal evidence on the benefits of CBD abound, so much so that products, once never seen on store shelves, are now flooding the market. But our fight continues. Not only for consumer protection/confidence, but on the farming/industry building aspects, as well. We gladly continue our journey in hopes to provide those looking for a natural option with a product they can trust and the opportunity to feel better and live better.

OUR HISTORY

SETTING INDUSTRY STANDARDS

With the creation of our Genesis Blend Hemp Extract in 2014, we set the gold standard for the CBD industry. We breed and cultivate resin producing cannabis varieties and extract using only the blooms to create a cannabinoid and terpene rich resin that is as close to the plant as you can get. Every ingredient is screened for safety and efficacy to create results-driven formulas with only the consumer in mind.

OUR FUTURE

GROWING FAST

Our business, like the industry, has come a long way. What began as a two man operation with the first Kentucky CBD product and the first CBD only retail store in KY/US, has now increased not only in team members but in size of operation – complete with two store locations in Kentucky and a consolidated corporate campus in the heart of Midway, Kentucky.
