A Brief History of Hemp
Hemp extracts have been used for many purposes dating back to the ancient Chinese Pharmacopoeia, written around 5,000 BC. Cannabis and hemp were considered medicines and were listed in the United States as well; in fact, cannabis could be found in the US Pharmacopoeia from 1850 through the early 1940′s. Despite centuries of hemp farming in the United States – including the hemp farms of Thomas Jefferson and George Washington – hemp agriculture was effectively banned in the United States in 1937. Fortunately for all, hemp products are legally imported into the US every single day, and account for the abundance of hemp foods, hemp clothing, hemp skincare, and hemp dietary supplements found online and in thousands of stores nationwide.
When derived from hemp stalk, the hemp oil constituent cannabidiol (CBD) is considered a food nutrient or dietary supplement, delivering the benefits of cannabinoids without the psychotropic/euphoric effects of THC.
We have a passion for the unique botanical profile of our hemp plants. We consider our hemp oil a “whole food” of hemp’s natural plant constituents. Our products contain industrial hemp oil pressed from the mature stalk of the plant, and our unique “cultivars” of hemp provide significant quantities and concentrations of CBD and other non-psychotropic phytocannabinoids in this natural oil.
Phytocannabinoids, also known as plant-based cannabinoids, are also found in other plants like flax, cloves, hops and black pepper, but we feel that hemp offers something unique: a harmonious combination of organic plant constituents that is unique in nature. There are over 200 natural compounds found in all Cannabis sativa plants, including hemp. Our goal at Dixie Botanicals is to deliver the natural goodness of hemp to you.

Extensive controls cover the sanitation and hygiene of our facilities, utensils, production materials and containers, as well as testing specifications and limits for heavy metals, pesticides and bio-burdens. Utilizing qualitative and quantitative analysis, our quality control unit approves all procedures, specifications, controls, tests, and examinations that impact the purity, quality and composition of an ingredient or product. Controls are also in place for handling materials throughout each step of the production process, such as worksheets and traveling tags, assuring consistency from batch to batch, easy monitoring, and averting opportunities for adulteration. All bulk products are stored in quarantine before entering our production cycle. Products are labeled with a formula identification number, lot number, receiving date, and expiration date for easy tracking by our Quality Control department. Our formulas are packaged for freshness and purity. With proper storage, the shelf life of our products is 2 years. Once opened, exposure to air, moisture, heat and light will accelerate the formula’s natural process of erosion. All of our formulas are free of coloring, pharmaceuticals, preservatives and sugar.
