Based in Arizona, naturally we love cacti. What we love even more is hemp and our founder Michael Stoltz discovered its health benefits in 2013. The nutritional profile makes hemp ideal for a wide range of functional food applications and our company meets the industry's TestPledge food care standards.
Michael is on the technical advisory council of the National Hemp Association (NHA) and occasionally speaks on hemp value chain topics.
Along the way we learned to grow and process hemp, here in the USA, while obtaining USDA organic certification for our Kentucky farmers. Naturally, we want to sustain our local business community and regional agricultural biodiversity, which is the reason why we support Local First Arizona and Native Seeds/SEARCH. On behalf of Vote Hemp, Michael volunteers his time to lobby for hemp legislation in Arizona, and just got SB 1337 on the books.
The latest step in the hemp value chain evolution is Functional Foods, a Pending Certified B Corporation, that develops and markets functional hemp food products under HempCX™.
