Tired of the mass grown, fast cured, machine trimmed biomass labeled as “Organically Grown” and “Hand Trimmed” products on the market today?
Just like the quote by Ann Wigmore in reference to the food you eat being “either the safest and most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison”, so too is the CBD Flower you consume.
We do not sell biomass products that were stripped off the stalk, flash dried in a kiln, machine trimmed and packaged for sale within a couple of weeks and labeled as organically grown. According to Hemp Industry Daily, the average size of a hemp farm in 2019 was 119 acres. Have you ever stopped to think about where one would acquire enough manure to grow 25, 50, 100 or 500 acres of hemp organically or how one would be able to grow that much and have the time to deal with quality? How would one ever prune, harvest, cure, trim and care for that much product and maintain any quality? There is no comparison between mass produced and small farm quality, whether it be hemp or food products, and the less people in the middle, the better and fresher it is.
Welcome to Medhemporium, where we do it the right way. Our farm hemp grow is approximately three acres and requires up to twenty people during peak seasons. Our other 97 acres is in alfalfa and brewery barley. Medhemporium is a small family-run boutique farm. We care about our plants, our products and our customers and this is reflected in the quality of everything we offer to you. We frequently receive questions about our growing practices, and why our hemp feels, smells and tastes the way it does. We are extremely passionate about growing our plants, and grateful for your support and continued confidence. We thought it would be helpful to share some insights here.
We are old school growers and believe in living soil organic farming, hand harvesting, hand-trimming and the process of ultra-slow curing our plants through an intensive two-month process maintaining an RH of 57-62% at all times to ensure we retain the highest cannabinoid and terpene count for our clients. We store it on the branches and only hand buck and hand trim enough to maintain a small inventory for retail. Wholesale orders are processed upon receiving your order to maintain freshness. We offer only premium, craft, creme de le creme, top shelf CBD hemp flower, designed for people that want to go back to plants for optimal health. Our mission is to help you live your best life by going back to plants. We believe in healthy people and a healthy earth, that is why we are using decomposable materials for our packaging.
Our CBD Flower products are tested for Potency, Terpenes, Mycotoxins, Pesticides and Heavy Metals.
Our lab results (COA’s) come from 3rd party, state approved labs. Our COA’s are as close to real as we can get them. We do not send in our best hand trimmed fine bud for testing to show you the highest possible CBD and terpene content and then use them to sell you lesser quality flower. We do a second test a few months after harvest when the products are cured in order to provide a much more accurate result. All of our test results are listed on the site, and are lab verifiable. We have tested the same plant in the morning, noon and evening and had varying results. This holds true when testing different plants in the same field. The terpene content also varies widely depending on how it was cured, with improperly cured products being less than one half what the COA from right after harvest shows. The faster the cure, the less terpenes there are left. COA’s on cannabinoids and terpenes should not be used to determine what you purchase. Try a product and see if it actually works for you. The vast majority of what is represented is “Marketing & Advertising”.
The Drying – Curing Processes:
Since all of our plants are hand-harvested, we take off the shade leaves off in the field and leave them there, to rebuild our soil. All of our products are hung on the stalk in a temperature (60-65 degree) and humidity-controlled (57-62 RH) environment for 8 weeks. Then we cardboard box the branches in a 42-degree room at (52-55 RH), that has nitrogen pumped into it. Many others that slow cure, buck it off the stems and cure it in plastic tubs, (which add Bisphenol A (BPA) to the product), or consider a slow cure to be 7 – 10 days, then buck, trim and package. Ours is a true slow cure, and quite a rarity these days. We do not sell biomass or machine trimmed product as they are not meant to be ingested or inhaled. The curing process and proper storage are essential to ensure the product doesn’t degrade and or lose a majority of its terpenes, and other natural ingredients, which is very common in this industry, thus harming the “entourage effect” of the product. Since the advent of mmj, and mass produced products, no one seems to know what a cured product is. Properly cured product means that the terpenes or smells, along with the other cannabinoids in the cannabis plant, like fine tobacco, are locked in the plant instead of oxidizing and degrading like the fast dried, machine trimmed product that is readied for market for profit, not for healthful and connoisseur purposes.
We try to keep a low quantity inventory, enough for a couple weeks sales at any given time. This ensures freshness. Trimming and packaging months in advance degrades the quality of the product as all the cuts while trimming cause the flower to breakdown faster due to more oxygen contact. We hand trim our products. We do not use machines that knock off all the trichomes.
Our Wholesale service begins at the five-pound mark and above. Funds are accepted by bank wire transfer, Cashier’s check, Visa, Discover and Mastercard. Shipping methods will be discussed and paid for and approved by you prior to sale. We highly suggest having it insured. If you’re after 1,000’s of pounds, please go elsewhere as we grow quality, and quality is not possible in quantity. We don’t buck or trim until order for purchase is placed, so lead time for preparation is dependent on size of order. We do try to keep a 5 lb stock in inventory of every strain for smaller purchases.
