We have stepped into one of the most exciting times in history. Prohibition was almost a century ago and hemp has finally made its comeback.
Hemp was once a dominant crop on the American soil. Industrial hemp is one of the earliest domesticated plants known, with roots dating back to the Neolithic Age as early as 2800 bce and was practiced in the Mediterranean in China era. Industrial hemp was hardly a renewable resource, and was refined for various industrial applications, including paper, textiles, and cordage.
The use of industrial hemp has evolved into an even greater variety of products, including health foods, CBD flower, organic body care, clothing, construction materials, biofuels, plastic composites and more.
Like marijuana, hemp is another member of the Cannabis sativa L. plant species, but they each contain a unique biological structure which makes them a very different plant. Marijuana plants grow to be bushy with dense bud structures that produce high THC. Rogue Valley Inc focuses our efforts on high CBD hemp plants that produce high CBD flower. There are two types of Hemp plants: One variety grows taller and thin and is used primarily for seeds, food and fiber and produce low amounts of CBD and THC. The other variety is a high CBD producing plant. These cultivars are specifically designed for oil production and when grown correctly will produce large, dense, oily and resinous buds that can be used for a wide array of applications. These high CBD cultivars are our main focus.
