In Vermont 2019 has become known as the Great Hemp Boom. It seems like everyone has a neighbor, friend, or relative who has tried growing hemp. I guess that makes the idea of knowing your farmer a pretty easy feat to accomplish. So, what else should you take into consideration when purchasing hemp products?
In my last blog post I stressed the importance of knowing the source of the hemp that went into the products you purchase. The next important step is harvesting and curing. At Northeast Kingdom Hemp we believe that harvesting by hand and drying naturally are both things that contribute to the quality of any finished product. We strive to preserve as many of the trichomes present on our hemp flower as possible. That is why we harvest our plants by hand and never use industrial dryers. We only grow as much hemp as we have the capacity to handle with care. We choose quality over quantity in every step of the process.
Speaking of process… in my next post I will share why you should care about the process used to extract the CBD in the products you purchase.
