What is CBD?
CBD stands for Cannabidiol, one of over 100 identified cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. People use CBD in many different ways, and for many different reasons. We recommend that our customers do their own research using trusted, 3rd-party sources to learn more about CBD and what people use it for.
What Does Full Spectrum Mean?
Full spectrum means that an oil or product contains all of the cannabinoids that are found in the cannabis plant in nature, rather than just CBD. Full spectrum products are associated with the “entourage effect” – this refers to the increased effectiveness of these products due to the different cannabinoids working synergistically.
How does Hempful Farms produce hemp extract oil, where does it come from?
Hempful Farms has made it a practice to work with the best. With that being said that also means we try to stay with the small “mom and pop” farms. We have been working with a small collective farm our of Oregon. The owner, Dawni Flagg has large farm experience but cares about the products going out more than the bottom line. We have also worked in tandem with Cloud Co farms, out of CO, the owner Luke, is someone we met while being a contestant on the Marijuana Show Season 2. And two of the other farms, NM and KS farms, we helped plant that hemp ourselves!
What makes our products the best CBD products on the market?
There are a few reasons why I feel we gain the competitive edge. One, as we mentioned before, we are a seed to sale business. We literally helped plant the hemp in the ground, We helped source the hemp to the perspective state. We also are very active in testing and R & D. We listen to our customers and what their needs are. Example: Many companies use menthol, Mint, eucalyptus, camphor, and mentholatum. Many of our patients have been through chemo and radiation and these ingredients have different results with chemo and radiation patients. We use more essential oils and organic ingredients when we can.
What else can we expect from your upcoming product lines this year?
That’s a great question! We have so much going on! Were looking at expansion, not only in the US, but abroad. Were in talks with a few countries about distribution and franchising. We are also looking to franchise the cafe/retail model of our concepts. Not only do we manufacture and farm, but manufacture and distribute as well. Were not the typical, “carry everyone else’s stuff” kinda store. We carry our own brand and products.
We are also involved in the cannabis space, re-launching our OG Zonka Bars Edible Medible Line. After a ten year hiatus, our artisan hand made chocolates are starting to infiltrate shelves across the state! Check out more at http://ogzonka.com
How did Hempful Farms start? What triggered the development of your first product?
Ironically enough, the Zonka Bars Cannabis Edible Line is what triggered the Hempful Brand. In 2010 we launched our Zonka Medibles in Arizona, as the AMMA and our medical program were coming online. My wife and I were licensed home growers, allowed to grow 12 plants each. Due to the ambiguity in the law, you’re only allowed 2.5 ounces, even with that many plants in harvest. Once we harvested our crop of 20+lbs, we were immediately out of compliance.
We created ZonkaBars Candy bars to help use the flower as medicine and started donating these products to collectives and compassion clubs, veterans and patients alike. 2012 we were raided for 27 total felonies from Criminal Syndication to Manufacturing a Narcotic. I was facing 127 years total.
After 3.5 years fighting in court, we hired a Private Investigator who informed us how crooked the county system was, the more evidence that was brought to light against the police, the less they wanted to go to trial too. Was offered a 2yr plea to avoid trial. I then launched a book, One Life: The Chris Martin Story” https://hempfulfarms.com/product/one-life-the-chris-martin-story/ then in Oct last year launched my Documentary, telling the whole story. https://www.amazon.com/HatersMakeMeFamous-Chris-Martin/dp/B07YYQQLJS
Does incorporating CBD into your daily life increases your chances of failing a drug test?
Honestly, hemp should be apart of your diet because of the photonutrients, cannabinoid levels and amount of Omegas in the plant alone. Hemp Seed, Protein and oils are all great ways to ingest hemp. If you’re using a full spectrum product, our a product that the THC hasn’t been remediated out, while taking a Urine Analysis, you can throw a positive. Youre taking cannabinoids while taking a cannabinoid test. I would def steer clear of full spectrum. While Ive read articles stating that CBD can convert to THC in the ingestion stage, I have not witnessed or experienced this myself but would say, to be sure you don’t fail, avoid full spectrum.
Why Do We Love Selling our Hemp Products in Phoenix Arizona?
Phoenix has been home to Hempful Farms since inception. Phoenix AZ is a wonderful area with mild winters and very warm summers. The views are magnificent here too. If it’s too hot for you in the summer, cooler weather is only a couple of hours away in the mountains of Northern Arizona.
Phoenix is home to professional sports teams like the Arizona Diamondbacks (baseball), Arizona Cardinals (football), Phoenix Suns (basketball), and Phoenix Coyotes (hockey). The majority of pro stadiums are indoors, and Chase Field for baseball has a retractable roof. There are also many cultural things to see and do, along with plenty of outdoor activities!
Arizona, while being desert, has some of the most amazing and unique wildlife in the United States. Gila monsters, horned toads, and other exotic wildlife can be captured with your naked eye, camera, or on video. Yes it’s dry here, but we also have lots of water in the form of rivers and lakes. You can swim, fish, and hunt in many places in Arizona, and of course we have the Grand Canyon too! In the wintertime, we have amazing ski slopes for those that love it!
Arizona is a big state with tons to do and places to see! If you are looking for a great vacation spot, consider coming to Arizona. While you’re at it, come visit us at Hempful Farms – we are located at 1756 W Bell Rd. Phoenix, AZ 85023 or call us at 602-368-6922!
