Since 8,000 BCE, the world has been using hemp to make paper and other products essential to everyday life. The first recorded mention of hemp in America was found in 1632. The Virginia Assembly actually mandated, “that every planter as soone as he may, provide seede of flaxe and hempe and sowe the same.” Massachusetts and Connecticut passed similar guidelines to encourage local farmers to grow and cultivate the plant. According to diary entries, both George Washington and Thomas Jefferson grew hemp on their plantations. Additionally, Benjamin Franklin began one of America’s first paper mills using hemp to make paper. The first two drafts of the Declaration of Independence were written on hemp paper in 1776.
Realizing the environmental benefits of hemp including reducing the worlds carbon emissions, the plants biodegradability, and the FDA’s approval of Epidiolex, the first drug approved by the FDA containing CBD. The United States Senate passed section 10113 of the 2018 Farm Bill, permitting the transportation of hemp across state borders. Many experts believe that hemp can displace trees as hemp farms can produce 4x more per acre in 5 months rather than 20 years of tree forestation.

Golden State Hemp is the forward facing brand for several of these divisions. Golden State Hemps’ genetics were grown in 6 US states in 2020, and they are on their way to operations in 15 US states in 2021, including international contracts with sales already in place. Golden State Hemp, based in Fresno, California, has a zero-waste philosophy by using every aspect of the plant to monetize a variety of revenue streams. From seed to sale, Golden State creates high-grade organic hemp products, while transforming the public's perception of the hemp plant's health benefits and environmental sustainability.
