High Grade Hemp – Longmont, CO
High Grade Hemp Seed Inc. is a Long Peaks Ranch-based CBD Genetic Company owned and operated by Bodhi Urban, the original breeder of Cherry Wine, Berry Blossom and Cobbler Hemp. Urban passionately studied cannabis genetics while growing up in Miami, before his curiosity eventually brought him out to Colorado. Along with some help from the founding members of the Colorado Hemp Project, Urban’s selection of “The Wife” made its way into the nation’s first registered Hemp Farm in 2014. High Grade Hemp now represents a full-service genetic and hemp consulting brand and even received a mention in Forbes earlier this year.
One can find High Grade Hemp’s genetics anywhere from Oregon to New York — they sell seed nationally. Their personal headquarters is located out of Loco Farms in Longmont, Colorado, a farm spanning over 100 acres with all the cultivation bells and whistles. They also have a brand-new state of the art greenhouse for auto-flower and R&D purposes. Their team of expert growers and botany specialists always strive to use ecological farming methods and practice sustainable partnerships with other farmers.
High Grade Hemp grows some of the finest CBD Strains in the country. Their geneticists place a strong priority on terpene development and resin production, as well as farm-proven strains that won’t go above the legal 0.3 percent THC threshold. They also have a 99.8% feminization rate for their seeds. A few of their most popular signature strains include Cherry Wine, Berry Blossom and Cobbler. Cherry Wine, a cross between The Wife and Charlotte’s Cherries, is a true connoisseur cultivar that upholds a complex cherry floral frame with pink skunk undertones. Their highest testing Cherry Wine plant yielded a CBD potency of 25 percent. Berry Blossom checks all the boxes when grading for quality, performance and aromatic appeal. A cross between Cherry Kandahar S1 (in-house selection) and Chardonnay, she produces mouth-watering smells of candied raspberries and açaí berries. Finally, Cobbler, a strain explicitly developed with terpenes in mind, is a cross between Tangistan R4 & Charlotte’s Cherries. Cobbler exudes an aroma of freshly opened tennis balls layered with orange peels and a slight chocolate nuance.
On top of selling some of the finest CBD Strains on the market, High Grade Hemp now offers “Seedlings” or “Seed Starts” for farmers who don’t have the time or infrastructure to start from seed. Their Seed Starts are available in both new and classic strain options and arrive post-germinated, root ball intact, and ready for soil.
