With the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill, consumption of Hemp Oil and CBD products shot up. In the United States alone, it is estimated that the Hemp Oil industry will be worth almost $2 billion by 2022, whereas the much more mature vitamin C market will only reach around $1.5 billion by 2023.
Hemp Oil and CBD manufacturers are constantly designing new products: gummies, edibles, oils, tinctures, body lotions, face creams, sunscreens, vapes, chocolates, cocktails, and more. The list is almost endless.
With such an increased demand for Hemp Oil and CBD products, inevitably comes expanded demand for Hemp production.
Quite a few states in the United States have the right climate, soil conditions, and legal framework to grow Hemp, so the number of growers is increasing. More and more farmers are shifting their crop to industrial Hemp, seeing the potential for the coming years.
Here at Synchronicity, we grow our Hemp locally in Colorado using sustainable practices.
Growing our own Hemp has given us an insight into what its cultivation requires to thrive. We have also discovered how rewarding it is to grow our own Hemp and turn it into helpful and beneficial Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil products.
Hemp can be used in many different ways: We use whole-plant Hemp to produce Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil products. Hemp flowers produce CBD. The stalks and fibers can be used for paper, ropes, textiles, and other products. As for Hemp seeds, they are used to make Hemp seed oil, which is added to food as well as cosmetic products.
This variety also affects Hemp’s cultivation needs. Farmers need to decide what their Hemp will be used for. Industrial Hemp planted for CBD production is planted farther apart than Hemp planted for its fiber. Hemp grown for its flowers is planted 1,000 to 1,500 plants per acre, while Hemp planted for fiber can be as tightly planted as 30,000 plants per acre.
When to Plant?
Industrial Hemp is an annual plant. In the United States, it is planted in mid-spring after the last frost and is harvested 16 weeks later, approximately in mid-fall. The soil temperature when planting should be 46 to 50 degrees Fahrenheit for the seeds to germinate.
Hemp is a hardy annual plant that is relatively resistant to pests and disease. Because it grows so tall, it usually outgrows weeds, so farmers don’t have to take care of weeds in their Hemp fields.
Best States to Plant Hemp
Many parts of our country are blessed with the right climate and soil conditions to plant Hemp.
The best states to plant Hemp include Colorado, Oregon, Kentucky, and Montana. These states also have the legal framework to issue the proper licenses to grow Hemp.
What Are the Challenges to Growing Hemp?
Through our 20-year experience of growing Hemp and talking to Hemp farmers, we have witnessed first-hand the challenges involved.
The first problem is to find industrial Hemp plants that contain under 0.3% of THC—the psychoactive cannabinoid responsible for a sense of “high.” Plants that contain THC above that threshold are illegal.
Synchronicity Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil is produced from CBDRx18, our proprietary Hemp plant strain. Our plants have been chosen for their high CBD and low THC content, below the 0.3% threshold. The constant third-party lab tests we run on our products guarantee the low THC content in our entire product selection.
Another challenge is that Hemp produced for Hemp Oil products should only come from female plants. These female plants have to remain unfertilized when they flower: this way, they are able to use their flowers to extract the CBD, cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids found in Hemp.
If a male plant is found nearby or in another Hemp plot, it could pollinate the female plants and reduce the flowers that give CBD. This could endanger the whole Hemp plot and decrease the ultimate CBD and Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil production.
Synchronicity Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil
Synchronicity has dedicated itself to setting the standards in the Hemp industry.
We have developed our own proprietary Hemp plants, which are sustainably grown in Colorado.
We have also developed LipidTrans™, our own gentle infusion process that bypasses harsh extraction methods like CO2 extraction or ethanol.
Our method is far gentler and more efficient: we infuse whole-plant Hemp into coconut oil or MCT. Our infusion process respects the integrity of the plant and leaves no chemical residue or harmful substances behind. This means that our final Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil products are as pure and potent as possible.
Crucially, we have chosen to offer our customers Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil rather than just CBD isolate. Our products contain the full benefits of Hemp. Besides CBD, industrial Hemp contains over 100 cannabinoids like CBC, CBN, CBG, CBDV, CBDA, THCV. These cannabinoids are believed to possess anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, and antioxidant properties.
Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil products also contain flavonoids, which are highly antioxidant, and terpenes, which are Hemp’s aromatic essential oils. Apart from their aromas, terpenes also have anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and antioxidant properties.
All these compounds work together to produce the so-called entourage effect. Our Wellness Through Oneness™ philosophy aims at offering our clients the True Entourage Effect™.
Our Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil product selection has been designed to give our customers the full potential of Hemp. Coupled with our sustainable Hemp cultivation, our meticulous infusion process, our certified production practices, and the thorough tests we administer repeatedly throughout the production process, Synchronicity is setting the bar in the Hemp industry.
Our team is always looking forward to surpassing itself. See our Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil products online or try out our trial kit to test several of our products and decide which ones work best for you. We offer free shipping on all orders.
