We operation under a very specific laws and regulations here are a few of them... Colorado Hemp Act (specifically, CRS 35-61-108):TITLE 35 AGRICULTURE ARTICLE 61 Industrial Hemp Regulatory Program C.R.S. 35 - 61-109 Farm Bill (Section 7606)
Our products do not contain THC and are NOT considered a medical marijuana product. Industrial hemp by definition will contain less than 0.3% THC by weight. No psychoactive compounds means you don't get high.
As beekeepers we know a lot about real honey. Our honey comes from bees not from a laboratory, not from marijuana, and is definitely not diluted with sugar syrup. All of our Healing Infusions start with raw honey.
Raw, small batch honey will vary in color and flavor from season-to-season and hive-to-hive. It all depends on the bees and the type of flowers from which they are collecting nectar. The resulting honey may be lighter or darker, more floral or sweet or less sweet in taste since our honey is a wild foraged product and we intentionally allow for these variations. This is the beauty and wonder of honey, enjoy it! Most store bought honey is a homogenization of different honeys from 100,000 of hives from many different areas. That is why when you see a darker or lighter honey you may think something is wrong. Naturally not all honey is a light brown/amber color. Some is even as clear as water and as black as a boot. Honey and wine are very similar in that they take on the characteristics of the area that they are produced, in French this is called a "terroir".
Our bees are raised with great care and attention using sustainable and organic practices. We do our best to work with the bees to help them create a healthy hive, place where they can naturally adapt to the mites, pests, environmental threats and diseases. We only step in when there is not other option.
CO2 extraction is a process that uses pressurized carbon dioxide to derive or draw the desired phyto-chemicals (such as CBD) from a plant. Liquid CO2 acts like a solvent, without the dangers of actually being one. This is widely considered the most effective and safest plant extraction method in the world and just happens to be the most expensive extraction method. Our Healing Infusions use the highest quality and purest forms of hemp extracts using clean CO2 extraction methods.
Raw honey comes straight from the hive as nature intended it. Raw honey is stranded not filtered and still contains trace amounts of pollen, wax, propolis, vitamins, minerals, and natural enzymes. Trace amounts of pollen helps to desensitize the body to seasonal allergies. Many of the other hive products have natural healing properties that can help fortify the body.
Our raw honey is a super-food on its own and can help as a sleep-aid, allergy relief, pre-biotic, anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, anti-microbial. Raw has has been used for thousands of years as a first-aid for minor cuts, mouth sores, digestive aid, a natural food preservative, and a beauty aid.
Healthy bee colonies that are essential and a natural part of fruit, vegetable, and flower pollination. It is estimated that bees pollinate more than one third of all fruit, veggies, and nuts that we eat. We are beekeepers working to sustain healthy honey bee colonies that are essential to our food production.
Yes, we can ship our Colorado Hemp Honey to any state. Our industrial hemp extracts comply with European and US Law. ”The supplied material does not include any prohibited resins or portions of the plant that are subject to the United States Controlled Substance Act, Tile 21, Chapter 13, U.S.C.S., pertaining to the sale and distribution of cannabidiol oils and products.

If raw honey and hemp are super-foods on their own, imagine the effects of putting them together. Our unique blend of raw artisan honey with the healing power of hemp is a perfect combination of nature’s healing powers. The two natural products compliment each other perfectly. Our customers report sleeping better, less pain and anxiety, and generally feeling better when taking our products.
We support local extractors who source the industrial hemp and CBD extracts from locally operated hemp farms all over Europe, including the countries of Denmark, Germany, Austria, and Switzerland, and others. We do not, will not, and have never sourced our hemp extract from China. In order for us to comply with state and federal laws in the United States, we are only sourcing our hemp from countries that we know for certain it is legal to do so from. This way we are abiding by both state and federal law so that we can provide CBD infused raw honey to everyone. Once the laws change we will be able to source our CBD extracts from Colorado based extractors.
Our cannabidiol rich (CBD) products are produced from industrial hemp and in order for us to legally use and sell them, the hemp must be grown outside the United States. We purchase our extracts from Colorado based extractors who in turn import it from out of the country (specifically from multiple European countries) and the importation is very costly. A supercritical CO2 oil extraction is performed on the stalks and seeds of mature industrial hemp plants, and the resulting hemp oil is analyzed in a laboratory through an HPLC test. Purity and potency are very important. In order to obtain the potency levels the hemp needs to be extracted and refined multiple times. So by the time the extracts get to the customer it have been tested at least 3 times along the way. In order to deliver the highest quality hemp derived cannabidiol (CBD Oil) products the costs add up very quickly. It comes at no surprise that the highest quality products often come at a higher cost. As hemp production laws change in the united states we anticipate cost reductions the follow. We plan to take advance of these cost reductions and pass on this savings to our customers. Hemp on!
We all know that eating whole fruits and vegetables is better than eating isolated parts of them. There is a growing volume of research that supports this believe in the industrial hemp sector. CBD is powerful on its own but in the presence of natural plant essence (Terpenes) its effect is greater. This is the difference between a whole food and an isolate. Whole foods are simply better. “Our findings that CBD in the presence of other plant constituents improve the dose-response are supported by some recent reports showing that CBD in a standardized Cannabis sativa extract is more potent or efficacious than pure CBD -. These research groups studied the anti-proliferative effect of CBD on tumor cells   and the inhibitory effect of CBD on bladder contractility . The higher efficiency of plant extract might be explained by additive or synergistic interactions between CBD and minor phytocannabinoids or non-cannabinoids presented in the extracts.”
(Dr Ananya Mandal, MD from News Medical gives a great summary. Summary below…Read full article) “Cannabinoids are naturally occurring compounds found in the Cannabis sativa plant. Of over 480 different compounds present in the plant, only around 66 are termed cannabinoids. “The most well known among these compounds is the delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (Δ9-THC), which is the main psychoactive ingredient in cannabis. Cannabidiol (CBD) is another important component, which makes up about 40% of the plant resin extract. Cannabinoids exert their effects by interacting with specific cannabinoid receptors present on the surface of cells. These receptors are found in different parts of the central nervous system and the two main types of cannabinoid receptors in the body are CB1 and CB2. In 1992, a naturally occurring substance in the brain that binds to CB1 was discovered, called anandamide. This cannabinoid-like chemical and others that were later discovered are referred to as endocannabinoids. The effects of cannabinoids depends on the brain area involved. Effects on the limbic system may alter the memory, cognition and psychomotor performance; effects on the mesolimbic pathway may affect the reward and pleasure responses and pain perception may also be altered. The most abundant of the cannabinoids is CBD, which is thought to have anti-anxiety effects, possibly counteracting the psychoactive effects of THC.” For us it comes down 5 key points: Source of CBD extracts, Purity and Potency, High Quality Ingredients, Productions Quality Control, and Core Beliefs.
