What makes Rocky River Hemp products special and why Organic matters?
‘Terroir (/tɛˈrwɑːr/, French: [tɛʁwaʁ]; from terre, “land”) is a French term used to describe the environmental factors that affect a crop’s phenotype, including unique environment contexts, farming practices and a crop’s specific growth habitat. Collectively, these contextual characteristics are said to have a character; terroir also refers to this character.’
Traditionally, wines came from distinctly different areas, and the unique quality of the land where the grapes were grown made its way into each different wine. We always use hemp we grow on our farm as the basis for all of our products, and because of our unique North Carolina soil profile and organic, regenerative agricultural practices our hemp products are especially potent, with a character unique to our land. Our Terroir is special to our land and location in southern Chatham County, North Carolina.
Not to toot our own horn too much but the proof is in the pudding! Most first extraction Hemp Oil, called Crude Hemp Oil, which contains all of the cannabinoids the hemp cannabis flower has to offer, is about 60% CBD. The next highest step, Hemp Oil Distillate is another level of processing, removing more of the potentially beneficial elements to get a higher CBD concentration of around 80%. Our Crude Oil, which is the first and ‘closest to the plant’ extraction, is 79% CBD and 87% TOTAL CANNABINOIDS WITHOUT ANY ADDITIONAL PROCESSING.
What does this mean? It means organic practices that preserve the land and water can also deliver excellent results in terms of potency, better than any our processing lab has ever seen. It also means we don’t have to spend a ton of money on synthetic fertilizers and pesticides, since our natural fertilizers and organic pest control do a darn good job, and we can put out a product with higher potency for less money.
And that’s why even though it’s not the easiest way to make a hemp product, it’s the best way we know, and at Rocky River Hemp, we will keep growing our hemp Organically and Sustainably to deliver you the most beneficial hemp goodies to make your days and nights a little better.
