Let’s start from the beginning.
As the founder of LMJ, I have spent countless hours on Hemp farms. Walking through a hemp farm, you would swear it is the Cannabis that we all think of – the one that gets you high. The look, the smell, the plant itself is virtually identical, what it is missing is THC. The reason for this is that Hemp is the Cannabis Sativa L plant, and has a variety of strains that dictate the terpene profile, flower, and percentage of CBD. While it is scientifically Cannabis, it has been given the name Hemp to differentiate between the psychoactive plant and the non-psychoactive plant.
The way Hemp or Cannabis is grown is critical.
Cannabis is a unique plant, in that it cleans the soil, pulling toxins out called through a process called Phytoremediation. While it is fantastic for our environment to use a plant to pull heavy metals and toxins from our earth, it isn’t fantastic when that plant is used as medicine. It is imperative that the Cannabis and Hemp used as medication be grown organically and tested thoroughly for toxins and heavy metals. Hemp grown for the purposes of fiber plays an important role in detoxifying soil, Italy grows Hemp for the sole purpose of detoxifying the earth.
Broad or Full spectrum CBD.
There are two types of CBD products; CBD isolates and Broad or Full spectrum CBD. CBD isolate has been processed to remove all THC and other naturally occurring compounds such as terpenes and other Cannabinoids. Broad Spectrum CBD may or may not contain less than .3% THC and retains the important terpenes and Cannabinoids.
We don't choose products because they are in pretty packages, we choose products because we know the plants that they came from or the way in which the plants were grown, tested and processed.
We want you to know as well, so here is the breakdown.
Kush Queen - The farm where their hemp is grown is approximately 45 minutes from our office, with our sister company being the largest grower supply store in Oregon, we know the farm well and their standards are superior.
Siskiyou Sungrown - They are approximately 30 minutes from our office and we know them well, their attention to detail and professionalism in both their growing methods and product development are among the best.
BEBOE and Wildflower - Their commitment to quality, testing, and sustainability are key elements in brands that we choose to carry. They are trusted industry leaders and we are thrilled to have them in our product selection.
Vertly - Vertly blends the backgrounds of the husband-and-wife duo, Claudia and Zander. Zander’s family has been involved in the cannabis industry for over a decade—The organically grown, full-spectrum CBD is combined with fresh herbs that are slow infused for three weeks or more for full potency. Everything is handcrafted in small batches and each ingredient serves a specific therapeutic purpose.
GRON - Their CBD is grown by East Fork Cultivators a USDA Organic farm in the Illinois Valley, about an hour and a half from us. GRON uses CBD Isolate, which ensures that there is zero THC in their products. We would love to sell their confections and plan to when the weather cools down and we can confidently ship them. Their edibles are always my first choice.
Plaisir de Grasse - Using organically grown CBD and made in small batches, their lubricant contains the highest CBD content of any on the market today.
LMJ Products - Sourcing our own CBD took some time, we wanted to partner with someone that had our same values, mission, and heart for healing. We additionally wanted to use nanotechnology. Our broad-spectrum CBD products are made from organically grown, fully tested Hemp. The raw hemp oil goes through a proprietary process that transforms it into nano-sized emulsions. This makes it the most bioavailable broad-spectrum CBD in the industry.
Most hemp oil particles are anywhere between 100 and 1000 nanometers in size. Our particles are around 25. This small size leads to much more effective absorption. This nanoemulsion process can make our soft gel formulas at least two times more bioavailable than oil-based products.
Buddha Tea - Buddha Tea is committed to organically grown, sustainable ingredients that are non GMO and chemical-free. Crafted using nanosized particles of water-soluble CBD, Buddha Teas’ innovative process ensures that the CBD they claim to include in their tea bags actually ends up in your tea. With water-soluble, bioavailable CBD you can feel confident that the CBD extracts into the hot tea, which allows your body full delivery, providing it with the most benefits possible.
