About Top Shelf Hemp Co.
Top Shelf Hemp™ is focused on one thing and one thing only, establishing the line between craft smokable hemp flower, and hemp grown for extraction. Founded in mid-2017, we spent the first 18 months establishing relationships directly with farmers, building our network, and laying the foundation for the 2018 Farm Bill to pass. After it passed in December of 18' we had our products on the market. It is our vision that the smokable hemp flower market will continue to improve, and that our products will be recognized for what they are. Premium Cannabis grown with quality, sustainability, and consumer experience in mind.
Our Staff is continuously growing. We hire passionate people that align with our vision for the plant and planet. As we bring new people in, they become family. When the entire warehouse shares the same goals, and mission, its hard not to love everyone! We are focused on providing an amazing work environment for our Family. After all, every person handling this plant affects the experience of the end consumer. That being said, nothing but good vibes goes into our work. You can walk into our warehouse any given day and find smiles, loud reggae music, and an amazing aroma blend of terpenes.
Kind Remedies (the parent company to Top Shelf Hemp™) number one goal is sustainably grown industrial hemp. When it comes to farming and working with Mother Nature, we believe that the use of pesticides, tilling, excessive plastic, and poor curing practices are the poison of this Industry. This is why our own farm, and partner farms are sourced carefully to use organic, virgin land. We use no till practices and believe the micro organisms in the soil are the best thing for our plants. Tilling the land simply kills off these micro organisms. We use proprietary compost teas to feed our plants and soil to keep them growing throughout the season. Pesticides can be great at keeping the bugs away, but are terrible to consume, and just as bad for the environment. We believe in the power of hemp outside of the cannabinoids, which is why we will always put the planet over profits.
After our product is grown organically, (see "Our Farms"), we bring it into the production warehouse for drying and curing. It is dried for 8-14 days and then put into 45 gallon sterlite sealable bins. It is burped on a schedule over a month inside of these bins. From there we either machine or hand trim each and every flower depending on where its going. The best flowers are pre selected for our pre packaged Top Shelf Hemp ™ and white label customers and go into the production line. We hand trim each bud to a level at which we would consume it (we are very picky after working with so much of this product)! We then package it into a Kraft, biodegradable bag with a Boveda 2 way humidifier to improve shelf life and the consumer experience.
