Situated in the San Luis Valley, the largest alpine mountain valley in the world, is the San Luis Valley Hemp Company. Created by farmers for farmers, this hemp company has a goal to practice farming that is healthy for the earth, all while producing a product that is healthy for people!
In 2014 Colorado was one of the first states to approve growing hemp. Shanan Wright and Dion Oakes, potato and barley farmers, began to focus on the issues farmers faced with growing hemp. Along with farmer Monte Robertson, Wright and Oakes built on a vision to create packaged products for the market. Today, they have narrowed their goal to focus simply on health.
A large variety of hemp products are available through the San Luis Valley Hemp Company. The shelled hemp seeds, the nut or meat of the seed, are a great place to start. Available in 12 or 24 ounces and three- and five-pound bags, these are a perfect source of omega fatty acids. Just three tablespoons provide 10 grams of protein. This gluten-free, non-GMO superfood has a light nutty taste that goes great with everything!
For a more subtle serving of hemp, a bottle of their hemp seed oil makes it easy to take it up a notch in the kitchen. Salad dressings, dipping sauces, and smoothies are all options you can make with this oil. It pairs perfectly with any oil-based product.
Hitting the gym? Grab a bag of hemp protein powder. High in protein and fiber, it gives a boost to smoothies or shakes, cereal, and even baked goods if you have a sweet tooth.
The San Luis Valley Hemp Company also keeps in mind human’s best friends—cats and dogs. The HEAL Capsules for Pets use full-plant extraction to provide support to the endocannabinoid system, and the Chicken Flavored Tincture for Pets is made without synthetic chemicals and gives natural help for pets’ biological lives.
San Luis Valley Hemp Company recognizes the health benefits of hemp and has worked with those benefits to develop nourishing and beneficial products for customers.
