CannaVest is in the business of developing, producing, marketing and selling end-consumer products containing industrial hemp-based compounds with a focus on cannabidiol (CBD). We seek to take advantage of an emerging worldwide trend to re-energize the production of industrial hemp and to foster its many uses for consumers.
Our health and wellness raw industrial and consumer products are produced with cannabidiol (CBD), which is derived from hemp seed and stalk. This federally legal substance can be used in foods and nutritional supplements for consumer health and wellness benefits, and is also used by the pharmaceutical industry for a variety of therapeutic purposes.
CannaVest seeks to revitalize and develop the United States industrial hemp industry, which we hope will complement our extensive overseas operations. As hemp legislastion and legalization continues on at the state level and at the national level, we anticipate the day that “hemp” is separated from “marijuana” and hemp is once again grown in America.
In an ideal scenario, we would like to be able to plant a US-based “test-crop” of industrial hemp in early 2014. More ideally, we would aim to contract with local farmers in 2014 to help us produce a more extensive industrial hemp crop in the future.
CannaVest is developing business plans to locate hemp seed processing mills near to our future family of hemp farmers – regardless of location. These local factories will convert hemp seed into nutritious oil, protein powders, bread flour, and hemp meal. CannaVest supports local efforts and believes that "sustainability starts locally."
