With Deep Roots in Cali’s Cannabis Culture, Circle Labs of Marin County Delivers High Grade Hemp Derived CBD

Too many people who may be able to find real benefits from legit CBD products are instead walking blindly into the market with no advice, no education, and no clue on how to separate the snake oil from the CBD. We have friends and family asking us all the time for recommendations specifically for hemp-derived CBD but we’ve never had any place to confidently point them… until now.

Regenerative farming.
Research-driven, quality-controlled manufacturing.
High-grade products that work.
Compassion based community outreach.

Jeez… is this a hemp CBD company or an old school cannabis company?

That’s the beautiful part, Circle Labs is both.

Big Government is Killing America’s Small Farms: A Cautionary Tale for Those Eager for Federal Cannabis ‘Legalization’

In 2016, there were more than 14,000 certified organic food farmers here in America, up a whopping 58% from 2011. California cannabis can follow this same model but the barriers to entering the industry must be lowered and the incentive to grow environmentally responsible, high quality, organic craft cannabis must be higher than it currently is. As for the rest of the country, we should really be careful what we wish for when we discuss federal cannabis legalization.

With Deep Roots in a Desert Oasis PRIMORDIA LLC is Poised to Put Southern California Hemp Production on the Map

We were somewhere around Brawley on the edge of the Anza-Borrego desert when we hit the GPS coordinates we had been given by our contacts. After a brief greeting, they motioned toward what appeared to be a real life oasis in the distance, a glimmering emerald gem throbbing in the rising heat of the extended summer we enjoyed in Southern California. We followed them down a winding dirt track, our tires digging into the desert sand, happy to be riding in a 4×4 pickup truck. Our escorts wove us through security checkpoints and thousands of acres of varying forms of perfectly partitioned agriculture on route to our ultimate destination. A seemingly endless forest of 10-15ft tall flowering hemp plants awaited our arrival…

Revisiting AB 228: The Good, the Bad, the Reality… and the Need for Qualified Independent Lab Testing of Hemp Derived CBD Products

We do not support or endorse the entirety of the language in AB 228 but if that is the direction the market is going then the compliance standards that cannabis companies are being held to must be imposed on hemp brands as well. If hemp-derived CBD brands want to jump in these shark-infested waters, they should have to swim for shore or drown just like the rest of us.

Potential Razor Hidden in California Assembly Bill 228 Threatens to Slash at CBD-Rich Cannabis Producers

We are all about safe access for all, especially when it comes to the medicinal use of cannabis or hemp. Lower priced hemp products are not inherently bad, and those that are farmed and produced ethically need to have a place in the market but this feels like a deadly blow to the already niche market of CBD-rich cannabis production in California and that is scary.
