Our Story

We discovered CBD oil in 2017 and were staggered by the positive effects it had on our respective wellbeing. From that moment we made it our mission to create a range of superior quality and trusted English made CBD products with the utmost care and diligence.

We whole-heartedly believe in embracing the power of nature’s finest remedy to enhance lives.

Our Story

Mike and Jackie discovered CBD in 2017 and were deeply impressed by the positive effects that it had on their respective wellbeing. Mike found that it improved the quality of his sleep and also the recovery time after exercise, whereas Jackie found that she felt significantly more centered and had a greater sense of wellbeing. From that moment they made it their mission to learn more and understand the full potential of this incredible plant.

Together they started to do their own research, and through chatting with friends they realised that there were common issues with sleep, anxiety, injury or problems with gut health, and that CBD had incredible potential to change lives for the better.

As a farmer Mike was also particularly encouraged to learn about what a significant addition it would be to the farm’s crop rotation due to its wide variety of uses, and also its excellent environmental credentials which would help to deliver on Mike’s passion to improve the farm’s sustainability.

There was plenty to learn, and it was down to a stroke of good fortune when a mutual friend introduced them to Jimmy Ward and Helena Barrett who between them had over 50 years of experience in working in the hemp and cannabis industry. The pair understood the importance of so many aspects from seed variety selection right through to the processing of the products. They were acutely aware and frustrated by the general misinformation about the industry and also the poor quality products that were being marketed.

By joining forces, they understood that together they could realise their collective ambition of growing hemp in scale and developing their own range of high quality and trusted hemp and CBD products whilst being in control of the entire process from the planting of the seed to the selling of the eventual products.

Everyone agreed that a lack of knowledge was having a real impact on people using their CBD products properly, not knowing what to look for in a CBD product, or being missold a CBD product entirely. With a myriad of products available and no clear guidance on labelling the CBD market can be a confusing one to navigate.

The Farm

The farm is a fourth-generation arable enterprise growing, wheat, malting barley, oil seed rape, beans, sugar beet and potatoes, and now of course, hemp. On his return to Lincolnshire and the farming business, Mike recognised that the successful future of the business would need to be aligned with a more sustainable approach to farming.

The majority of the farm comprises mineral-rich limestone brashly land which is ideal for growing root crops, but has a tendency to dry out quickly, particularly in drought conditions.

Introducing the growing of “cover crops” on the land immediately following harvest in order to encourage root systems to be developed through the soil profiles and for the green vegetation to be incorporated back into the soils so that it enhances the soil’s biodiversity as it decomposes.

It became clear to Mike that in order to be successful in improving the farm’s sustainability, he would have to increase the organic matter in the farm’s principal asset; its soils. In order to do this, Mike looked at all aspects of the business, which included;

  • Improving soil structure by reducing compaction. New tractors were bought which could automatically inflate or deflate their tyres depending on a particular act of cultivation. This not only reduces compaction but also helps to make the tractors run more efficiently and use less diesel.
  • Bringing-in and spreading manure from cattle and chickens to improve soil biodiversity, and to reduce reliance on artificial fertilisers.
  • New machinery was acquired to minimise soil disturbance during cultivations which protects and enhances the soil structure.
  • Introducing the growing of ‘cover crops’ on the land immediately following harvest in order to encourage root systems to be developed through the soil profiles and for the green vegetation to be incorporated back into the soils so that it enhances the soil’s biodiversity as it decomposes.
  • This multi-strand approach has done much to improve the overall health of the soils, and to reduce the farms reliance on artificial fertilisers and agri-chemicals allowing the business to become more environmentally friendly and bio-diverse. In respect of the hemp crops, this project has enabled us to produce hemp without any Agri-chemicals being applied at all.
