Why did we become hemp farmers?
Many of you know about our daughter Caitlyn, who at 10 months experienced medical issues.. She has been on some very serious medications to help with these symptoms since then. At one point, the medications she was taking were not totally relieving her symptoms and we knew she was uncomfortable and unhappy. We also knew that the medications she was on would have extremely damaging long term effects, like liver damage. Chris and Susan decided to start researching alternative medication options. With extensive research, they decided CBD oil was the best for their family. The initial dose was very small and over time, we steadily increased it until we found a dosage that works for her. After finding the right dosage, her quality of life has significantly improved !
After a ton of reading and asking about a million questions, they found that Tennessee has an industrial hemp program through the Department of Agriculture. We took the leap in the summer of 2017 and applied for a license to grow and process our hemp! Through the Department of Agriculture, we are required to maintain a 0.3% or less of THC in our hemp.
