ADVOCACY

USING YOUR VOICE

We believe in not settling with the cards you’re dealt and the answers you don’t want to hear. Do your own research. Advocate for change. Fight for the very best, because you and yours deserve it.

We wouldn’t be where we are today if we had not stood up for our son’s right to a natural remedy, for our right to cultivate a harmless but largely therapeutic plant for him and others like him.

And while what has occurred within the industry thus far has been good, more is needed. Protection for the hard work and investment of farmers with an increase in allowable THC limits. Protection for consumers from being deceived and potentially harmed by mislabeled, low-quality CBD products. They need faith in the products they’re consuming.

We’ll persist in our Kentucky hemp advocacy. We’ll continue advocating for hemp farmers for the purpose of growing a stable, prospering and reliable industry. As well as, for you, our consumers, so you can have transparency and confidence in your purchases.

But honestly, we’d love your help – there is power in numbers.

WHAT WE’VE DONE THUS FAR. THE BEST IS YET TO COME.

LEGISLATION HIGHLIGHT

SHAUNA’S LAW

Kentucky hemp advocacy is more than just for farmers and industry – it’s for consumers too. In 2019, we began our push for legislation that allows state employees to consume full spectrum CBD products without fear of repercussion. Born from our desire to help consumers like Shauna, an EMT in Eastern KY, who was terminated after testing positive for trace amounts of THC metabolites in her system after consuming our Genesis Blend XS – a federally legal, non-intoxicating product. We refiled it in 2020 and 2021 and will continue to do so until legislation is passed.
