MEET THE TEAM
Hudson Hemp is an association of farmers located in New York’s Hudson Valley. We focus on regenerative agriculture and soil science to cultivate our organic sun grown hemp. We partner with leaders in the industry to process our harvest into top quality hemp oil distillate and isolate.
At Hudson Hemp, we believe that health begins in the soil and extends to you. Wellness means regeneration; our organic processes renew their own beneficial sources of energy. Our mission is to cultivate ecosystems that replenish, enhance and protect the earth's natural resources for years to come.
Hudson Hemp is a pioneer in regenerative agriculture, an ecological principle that focuses on building and holding stores of carbon in the soil. Our organic farm production methods mimic natural systems, and enrich biodiversity through smart water and nutrient cycles. Our no-till, cover-cropping, grazing, and companion plant systems promote a closed-loop recycling of fertility, and allow for less dependency on outside inputs. We are committed to holistic stewardship of the land, and to forging the future in modern agriculture.
For Wholesale Partners
Hudson Hemp partners with small farmers through New York State’s Industrial Hemp Agricultural Research Pilot Program. We build relationships with affiliate growers based on shared values for land and community.
Hudson Hemp supports cannabis education, advocacy and research. We invite community members to participate in our mission and benefit from our learnings.
Hemp Oil Distillate
Our full-spectrum hemp oil distillate is derived from carefully selected strains of hemp. Our oil is a great source vitamins and minerals, (such as iron, calcium, magnesium, vitamins A, B, C, and E, and beta-Carotene,) as well as Omega 3 & 6 essential fatty acids and chlorophyl. Our oil is third party tested and free of any solvents, waxes, contaminants and additives.
CBD isolate is cannabidiol in its purest form. This product comes in the Crystalline (powdered) form. Because of its consistency, isolate is a flexible ingredient. The CBD isolate crystals are a fine white powder that contains 99% pure CBD chemical compound. Our isolate is free from any contaminates and harmful chemicals.
Frequently Asked Questions
1) What is hemp?
Hemp refers to varieties of Cannabis Sativa L. that are non-psychoactive, meaning they contain less than .3% THC. While hemp and marijuana come from the same cannabis species, they differ genetically and are further distinguished by use and chemical makeup. Hemp can be grown for many uses; its fibers and stalks are used in clothing, construction materials, paper, biofuel, and plastic composites. The seeds and flowers are used in health foods, organic body care, and other nutraceuticals. Here at Hudson Hemp we use our carefully selected plants to produce medicinally beneficial Hemp Oil Distillate and Cannabidiol CBD free of any contaminants and harmful chemicals.

2) Where does your hemp come from?
Hudson Hemp sources its hemp from our farm, Old Mud Creek Farm, and its affiliate research partners, Stone House Grain, Earth Born Gardens and Sky Farm. Our farm and our affiliate growers meet our high standards for organic and sustainable production and are in compliance with all State and federal laws regarding hemp production with the 2014 Farm Bill.
3) What is Cannabidiol CBD?
Cannabidiol or CBD is just one of over 100 cannabinoids discovered so far in the cannabis plant. CBD is widely regarded as the cannabinoid with the most medicinal potential. It is non-psychoactive and interacts with the body’s natural endocannabinoid system to promote homeostasis. Research on the medicinal effects has shown to be a potential therapy for anxiety, pain, inflammation, as well as epilepsy/seizures and reducing the dependency on opioid pharmaceuticals.

4) What makes Hudson Hemp's products top quality?
We at Hudson Hemp adhere to the USDA Organic standards and all of our hemp crops are grown free of chemical fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides. We work closely with ProVerde Laboratories, Inc to test our hemp and CBD throughout the production process to ensure accuracy in potency information, as well as checking for contaminants like pesticides, herbicides, heavy metals, microbes, mildew and mold. We use supercritical CO2 and subcritical ethanol methods during the hemp oil extracting process. These processes are supported by the FDA and have been given the GRAS (“generally recognized as safe”) stamp of approval.
5) Is Hudson Hemp sustainable?
We aim to not only sustain the life that exists in the soil but build new life and ecosystems to replenish and strengthen the land’s resources for years to come. We work closely with our partner Hudson Carbon, whose use of sustainable and regenerative agriculture techniques focus on improving soil health and function as well as the sequestering and storage of carbon within the soil, to better ensure that our business practices reflect this ethos of a sustainable way of life.

6) What is regenerative agriculture?
Regenerative agriculture is an ecological principle that focuses on building and holding stores of carbon in the soil. Soil carbon captures vital nutrients within the soil and supports diverse populations of microorganisms responsible for the release and recycling of these nutrients. Carbon also improves the ability of the soil to capture and hold water. Soil carbon is key in creating resilience across an agricultural landscape. Better water and nutrient cycling means less dependence on outside inputs and less cost associated with improving our farm’s productivity.

7) Are your products legal?
Yes, the domestic cultivation of hemp for commercial use in the U.S. is legal in New York State for research and product discovery purposes. CBD is abundant in agricultural hemp which, under the Agricultural Act of 2014 or the 2014 Farm Bill, allows for universities and state departments of agriculture to begin cultivating industrial hemp as long as the hemp oil contains less than 0.3% THC by weight, exempting it from the Federal Controlled Substances Act prohibition on marijuana. In the U.S., CBD derived from hemp is considered a dietary supplement and is legal to purchase and ship across the United States. That being said, six states have outlawed CBD at the state level and we cannot ship to those states until further notice: Idaho, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, and West Virginia.
8) What is the Industrial Hemp Agricultural Research Pilot Program?
New York State is very forward thinking in providing the right regulatory climate to spur agrowing industrial hemp industry. Through the New York Industrial Hemp Agricultural Research Pilot Program institutions of higher learning, individuals, and business entities have been able to apply for permits allowing them to domestically cultivate hempfor commercial use, as long as certain criteria and guidelines are met. These include security measures, inspections by the state, submission of annual reports, as well as focusing their cultivation on research and product discovery purposes. Hudson Hemp is one of the original permit holders within New York. For more information please read more here.
