The 2018 Farm Bill was essentially a green light for farmers everywhere in the US to get seeds in the ground for this upcoming 2019 hemp harvest (September-November). What does this mean for consumers? Lower prices, for starters. More farming means more supply and lower prices for consumers.We’ve always believed the price of hemp was artificially high, which is why we’ve kept our prices lower than anywhere else in the market and will continue to do so this harvest.

Each strain creates a different experience, from zen and relaxation to creativity. We’ve created a list of some of the top strains to try and their benefits so you know what to select come harvest time:
