Strawberry picking has evolved into hemp flower picking in Maine for people to make their own hemp oil.

Cooking with hemp oil or a pure CBD oil can be a lot of fun and save you some money too. Making CBD edibles isn’t very hard and by using our vanilla CBD oil, cotton candy CBD oil or bubble gum CBD oil, you can make all sorts of CBD rich food very easily. Making your own pure unflavored hemp oil is another story though. In order to make a CBD 1000mg tincture, you must decarboxylate the hemp flowers, use some sort of solvent to extract the CBD and check for THC levels if you think you might have to go through a CBD oil drug test.

Have you ever gone blueberry, blackberry, apple or strawberry picking before? It can be a lot of fun, especially on a nice day. Fresh air and the smell of organic fruiting plants can be very relaxing. Families have been enjoying these sorts of outdoor activities for many generations. They simply never get old. What about going hemp flower picking though? Is that something that you could ever imagine yourself doing? Farmers in Maine are banking on hemp picking being a new and curious way families can enjoy this timeless tradition with the first ever pick-it-yourself hemp farm.

 

Ben Marcus and Taryn Hammer Marcus, owners of Sheepscot General Farm LLC and Sheepscot General LLC, hope the crop — and demand for the active ingredient of cannabidiol, or CBD — will supplement their already popular pick-your-own organic strawberries.

Marcus and Hammer Marcus opened their farm and general store in Marcus’ hometown in 2011. In a July 18 interview, they said they would like to see most of their 3-acre hemp crop picked right off the plants and taken home by the end users, even though they have had inquiries from processors who would buy the plant material and likely extract the CBD for use in popular tinctures and concentrates.

 

We actually just introduced our new Strawberry CBD oil recently. Making your own CBD oil is certainly an option, but when you can buy CBD oils like ours, it’s really not necessary. We also have some delicious CBD edibles coming soon too, like CBD cookies and CBD brownies. Go hemp picking in Maine, that would probably be a lot of fun especially now that hemp with less than a .3% THC level is legal nationwide. If for no other reason, just because who has been able to legally go hemp picking the last 89 years? But, if Maine is a little too far away, Sugar and Kush pure CBD tinctures, CBD body scrubs and CBD gummies are just a click away.
