Lancaster County’s Roots in Hemp Inspires Local Company to Launch CBD Product Line
Before hemp was banned in the U.S. in 1957, farmers in Lancaster County Pennsylvania grew it in abundant supply. In 1958, the county’s last hemp crop was harvested and processed.
Now, Lancaster-based company Hempfield Botanicals is bringing hemp back—legally, of course—through its products with the healing properties of hemp-based isolated crystalline cannabinoids (also known as CBD). The company was named after the town of Hempfield, PA, where the most Lancaster County hemp was grown in its heyday.
Hempfield Botanicals uses whole-plant hemp extracts in its 100% THC-free products that provide an effective topical treatment for muscle, joint pain, and inflammation. Because the company’s products contain zero percent Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), they are considered industrial hemp products (which must have under 0.3 percent THC) and are allowed by U.S. Federal law to be produced and shipped to all states.
Hempfield Botanicals CBD products include:
Massage & Body Oil
The CBD in the products interacts with receptors in the brain to help ease inflammation and pain. Unlike THC in cannabis products, CBD does not produce a “high” or have other psychoactive effects.
The company sources all of its hemp-derived CBD from sustainable farms in Kentucky, a state known to be at the forefront of the hemp agriculture. All of Hempfield Botanicals products are created in a food-grade, GMP certified facility and are tested for safety and quality.
According to Heather Kreider, Hempfield Botanicals partner and co-owner of the business’s sister company Makes Scents Natural Spa Line, “Our business partner went to Hempfield School District and also lives on Hempfield Lane. So creating Hempfield Botanicals was a perfect fit. We are hoping to soon start using CBD from hemp grown locally in Lancaster County to further embrace and support the rich heritage of hemp here.”
Hempfield Botanicals products will be sold at spas and select retail locations.
