Growing in a controlled environment is great for stabilizing and monitoring plant genetics (Myrtle Grove’s focus during the winter), but even the best indoor setup cannot replicate the ecological benefits of growing healthy plants in healthy soil. Sun-grown hemp is powered by the most renewable resource of all time and captures the unmatched benefits of fresh air, biologically dynamic soil, and photosynthetic activity.
It can be. Regenerative agriculture is distinguished from agricultural practices that are inherently extractive and require a high level of inputs (usually derived from synthetic chemicals). The goal of regenerative agriculture practices is to restore the health of a farm’s ecosystem—healing the cycle of water, supporting biodiversity, and creating a closed loop, so the health of the farm increases year-to-year. Achieving this involves many organic practices, but also surpasses the requirements of organic agriculture in an effort to heal and regenerate agricultural landscapes.
Absolutely. More roots in the soil means more water infiltration through the soil. This purifies the water that will eventually reach the Bay and creates less runoff. Buffer plantings around all our hemp fields also act as filters, reducing erosion and keeping nutrients where they belong—in the soil, not the sea.
Essentially it means we do our homework to maximize the health of our plants and the quality of the final product we produce. Every step, from seed to store, presents an opportunity to cut corners or cultivate excellence. We prefer the latter. We start by monitoring and stabilizing plant genetics on-farm to ensure the plants that make it to the field are adapted to our environment, vigorous, and rich in cannabinoids. Then we add biological amendments, harvest and trim by hand, and slow-dry the hemp flowers to maximize potency.
We conduct our own field-testing throughout the entire growing season to monitor heavy metal uptake. Phytoremediation (the ability to withdraw metals from the soil) is one of hemp’s great ecosystem services, but we monitor this uptake to determine the quality and safety of the final product. Overall, our plants will be tested 7-8 times every season before undergoing a final 3rd-party potency test. This transparency is how we let our customers know that craft-quality CBD is more than a slogan. It’s a commitment to excellence.
All Myrtle Grove Hemp products, including Broad Spectrum, could contain very trace amounts of THC that are below detectable levels by our third party lab tests. Products are tested by using liquid chromatography, detecting THC levels over 100 PPM. If you are subject to drug testing then you may want to consult with the testing facility and your employer before using these products. Myrtle Grove Hemp Farm cannot guarantee the outcome of customer drug tests.
