We are very happy to announce that the first new crop from 2018 has arrived. We received our first order of the cultivar RNA (Russian Automatic) which as you can see is primarily made up of medium to large fluffy buds with a very aromatic nose I would describe as a mixture of skunk mixed with a certain sweetness.
The taste is a nice skunk/diesel with hints of fruitiness with an aftertaste we would describe as a sweet fruit punch. And the aftertaste lingers nicely.
Because of an excellent relationship we have developed with our farmers, we are able to offer this cultivar at a slightly lower price than other trimmed tops we have offered. Check it out on our Retail Shop or on the Wholesale Section for our wholesale customers.

For centuries, North Americans have utilized hemp in their homes, diets, and health regimens. For decades, we’ve also turned to imported products to meet much of our growing need.
And now, after years of major change for US agriculture and industry, real investment in this versatile crop stands to significantly elevate our economy and quality of life for generations to come.
The idea of upping hemp production is already common ground politically. As farmers have faced water shortages, unstable markets, and punishing seasonal conditions, communities around the country have pressured lawmakers to help them restore US agriculture with more profitable, sustainable plants.
Hemp has long been seen to fit that bill. Best known for its use in textiles, it offers wide-ranging applications that countless sectors are keen to get in on.
For example, hemp seeds in whole or processed form contain an impressive amount of protein, nutrients, and essential fatty acids, among other things — offering an efficient way to boost nutrition in human and animal diets — while hempseed oil has increasingly become a preferred ingredient in common food, beauty, and health products.
The new 2018 Hemp Crop is arriving!
We are excited to share that the drought of 2018 is over. New raw hemp is being harvested and dried by the ton.
Over the next 6-9 months, we will be offering a number of specialty hemp cultivars. These will include T1, Special Sauce, C4, RNA (Russian Automatic), Pineapple Haze, and a few special phenotypes recently created by farmers I know.
Herb-a-lites continues to be among the top rated sources for consistent and affordable raw hemp flower. Thank you for your support, and please place your order on our easy to use website.
If you ask most people what is the most important factor when considering purchasing one hemp variety (cultivar) over another, nine out of 10 people will say CBD%. But that is only a part of the story.
Because of its early acceptance as a beneficial compound, most hemp consumers are very familiar with the various benefits of CBD. But as we learn more about hemp and the research is beginning to document, there are many additional compounds in addition to CBD that contribute to its beneficial attributes.
At this time there are almost 500 different compounds in hemp which have been identified which may prove to have beneficial qualities, not to mention the interaction of these compounds in what is commonly referred to as the “Entourage effect” where the sum of these different elements is greater than the individual parts.
We are now starting to learn about the beneficial aspects of not only CBD but CBDa, THC, THCa, THCv, CBN, CBG, CBC as well as the over 200 turpenes which give cannabis its distinctive smell.
The more we learn about this amazing plant the more impressed it becomes. When considering purchasing your next batch of hemp take the time to learn about what is being sold and become an educated consumer.
We are happy to announce that our Herb-a-shake season product has been placed on the shelf in our local Lucky’s Market. We have also been approved for three other stores in Colorado. Assuming the demand is good we are expecting to expand to other stores across the country.
