Hemp Root Tea

Hemp Root Tea

We have long been fans of roasted dandelion root tea and now, thanks to our relationship with a local farmer, we have hemp roots to experiment with. They were just delivered this past week.

CBG: What It Is and Why We Care

CBG: What It Is and Why We Care

Cannabigerol is a cannabinoid that is identified in our lab reports and if you haven ‘t ever looked at the lab reports from SC Labs, we’ve attached a few herein for you to review.

The abbreviation for Cannabigerol is CBG and it shows on our test results for the plant material we use for our salves and for our tea as CBG and CBGa. CBG is just one of over a hundred chemical compounds found in the cannabis plant. Cannabis and hemp are two names for the same plant family. CBGa is considered the precursor or fore-runner to CBD because CBGa, the acidic form of CBG, breaks down to form CBG, CBD, THC, and CBC when heated. Fortunately, hemp laws that govern the non-psychoactive forms of cannabis don’t consider the potential of the medicine when regulating, just whether or not it is psychoactive in its raw, unprocessed form.

Seven Cardinal Rules

Seven Cardinal Rules

We never did a lot of vetting before on the Sisters who came to us. That’s all changing now as the efforts to punish us for not meeting individual expectations ramp up. More on that subject in newsletters to come.

After decades in corporate America, and when I finally got around to working on something worthwhile (the Sisterhood), I knew that people are either good at interviewing or not and that it doesn’t necessarily mean that because someone is good at interviewing, they are a good candidate for a teammate. On the other hand, someone can be lousy at interviewing but still...

How to Take CBD Oil

How to Take CBD Oil

Here in America, the American Medical Association lost credibility long ago... when it began investing in pharmaceutical companies... when it went against the recommendations of its own doctors and supported the prohibition of cannabis as a medicinal alternative... when they supported a bogus cancer-making food pyramid… sold its soul to the devil. But those weren’t the worst sins. The worst sin was that the American Medical Association and their big pharma buddies conspired to make people afraid to listen to their own bodies.

Stick Tincture

Here at the abbey, two have left us, two more came quickly to replace them. The Tuesday and Thursday night ritual of having all the children on the farm and everyone eating outdoors, picnic style (so the children can remain at play until dusk) has abruptly ended as the mid-summer heat descended harshly upon the valley.

What Is the Difference Between Hemp Oil and CBD Oil?

What Is the Difference Between Hemp Oil and CBD Oil?

The short answer explaining the difference between hemp oil and CBD oil, based on contemporary use of the English language is that hemp oil is an industrial product that comes from fields of cannabis stalks, the harvesting of the stalks, not the flower, and CBD oil comes from harvesting the flowers.

To make hemp oil, one either processes the stalks for industrial use (paper, fuel) or grows seeds for food or seed oil. To make CBD, one is processing the flower of the plant.

Hemp Farming: Hemp Seeds and Politicans

Hemp Farming: Hemp Seeds and Politicans

Long story short: No, we haven’t resolved our business banking challenges. Yes, Congress has passed the Safe Banking Act (for cannabis and hemp businesses), but the Senate hasn’t yet. No, we can’t grow our operations here in Merced County. Yes, we’ve already moved ¼ million in sales a year north to another enclave in another town.

On the Path to Hollywood

On the Path to Hollywood

When Jackie Huntington first reached out to us, over a year ago, to ask if we would consider being in and hosting on our farm Ollie and Nesta, to make a music video, we listened to the music and immediately fell in love with Ollie. We didn’t know who the artist was, when Jackie first approached. We guessed Taylor Swift or Halsey. We debated about it for weeks, as we listened and thought about it.

Sister Mary Batshit Crazy

Sister Mary Batshit Crazy

While I was living in Amsterdam, I wrote a book called ‘Thigh Freedom’, and what I remember from that is that my heroine of the story smoked a joint and the publishers made me write that out. That was only fifteen years ago. Now I fend calls with offers for movies, films, documentaries, animated series, on the very subject. Now foreign governments ask us to come speak at their conferences on the subject, mainstream media asks us to smoke a joint for their cameras before they leave. The Chamber of Commerce visits the farm and they all take selfies with the plants. How much the world has changed!
