Welcome to our resource library!
While we love seeing so much new interest in hemp, there's a lot of misinformation out there too. To combat this, and for the sake of learning, we're putting some of our favorite hemp resources in one convenient place for everyone to enjoy.
Be sure to check back periodically as we update this page with more resources and features.
Here’s a list of references for claims made on our site. We verify all claims and avoid exaggerating hemp’s benefits because it’s amazing enough without any added hyperbole.
As you browse our resources, please remember that all modern hemp research has been conducted within the artificial confines of government-strangulated hemp markets. This means that the hemp we’re growing today might not necessarily be an expression of hemp’s true potential.
Despite this, the data is more than promising, and we’re beyond excited to see what hemp can do.
