Finish Strong

On January 14th I went to a seminar held by the Michigan Agri-Business Association in Grand Rapids, Michigan called “Hemp, Marijuana and you…Oh My!” This seminar was several hours long, and we discussed important topics including the State of Michigan’s Industrial Hemp program. During a presentation made by Gina Alessandri farmers expressed a lot of concern around the problems that can occur when choosing to plant such a high-stake crop.

 Hemp has a natural association with risk for a multitude of reasons, but a lot of this risk can be eliminated with the help of a knowledgeable company like Michigan Hemp Solutions. We are here to help you have a successful year. We want to help you select the best genetics for your land, help you raise your crop and assist you after harvest by offering processing services.

Your success starts with the genetics you choose to plant. Trilogene Seeds is composed of a team with award-wining breeders, cultivators and growers. They have perfected genetics that have over 99% germination rates as well as 99% feminized seeds. The female hemp flower is sought out because all the medical value is housed there. Michigan Hemp Solutions will assist you in selecting the right genetic for you. As a certified Trilogene Seed consultant we have the team to help you make the best choice for you and your land.   

The next key to success for your hemp crop lays in using biostimulants to get a better yield.  The rhizosphere plays a key role in the development of the plant due to a relationship between the root and micro-organisms that surround the root. Adding biostimulants to your soil will enhance this network and aid hemp roots in obtaining the needed nutrients from the surrounding land. Think of biostimulants as a multivitamin for your plants. Biostimulants increase the manufacturing of different compounds that protect the crop from stress and disease resulting in healthier vegetation which leads to a better photosynthesis process. Using biostimulants will allow you to use a natural and chemical-free method of strengthening vegetation and aiding recovery in stressful situations as well as being regenerating once poor soils, into healthy lively soils filled with nutritional value.

A good genetic, help with the correct nutrients and with a little bit of luck in the form of good weather you will have a successful harvest. But what do you do after you harvest the crop you spent all summer raising? Drying and storing hemp in the right conditions is crucial and Michigan Hemp Solutions has the facilities available to offer our farmers a stress-free solution. We offer services that turn hemp into pellets by way of hammermilling the crop and encasing it into a hard shell. This aids in the preservation of CBD and makes transporting and extraction simple. We also offer the service of processing your harvest into high-quality CO2 Extracted oil. You can read our article about that here.

After you put in your investment and work all season long doing everything you could to win, we are here to help you finish strong by handling your crop with our experience like it’s our own.

Contact us today, schedule your consultation on a first come first serve basis. Send us a message via the contact page or send emails to contact@michiganhempsolutions.com – We look forward to hearing from you!

Looking forward to following up with you all after the @ihempmichigan expo! Our turn-key services providing farmers with seeds, plants, nutrients & biostimulants through processing will put some top-notch extracts in the market for 2020

Cultivation is Key For My CBD

Happy New Year! We hope that you all had a wonderful holiday season.

I am a mom of two and one of my children depended on cannabis as a therapy daily for many years. My daughter, Nattaly, was diagnosed with cancer at the age of four. She went in and out of treatment three times and during her second round of chemotherapy, we chose to use cannabinoids, mainly CBD and THC, to help ease the side effects she was experiencing due to her treatment. The question I kept finding myself asking was “where does this medicine come from?” Michigan is a legal state and there are policies in place so that provisioning centers are supplying patients with clean medicine that must be tested before it is sold so I knew her medicine was clean and safe for consumption but I had this urgency to know who handcrafted this plant for her.

I was never told the name of the farmer to thank or the field that cultivated a plant that made her quality of life exponentially better. Someone took the time to mature a plant to help her and I will never know who that was. This unanswered question left me with a desire to cultivate and produce medicine so that I could tell patients where their medicine came from and whose hands crafted it. Ben is our farmer at Michigan Hemp Solutions, and he is cultivating CBD for patients like you and those you love. He is also taking the time to teach others this trade so that high-quality products will continue to be produced for patients like Nattaly.

Michigan Hemp Solutions cultivates hemp with a high CBD profile on a family farm in Galesburg Michigan. The CO2 extracted CBD oil produced is also manufactured in Galesburg. It is important to us that you know where your cannabinoids are cultivated because that makes all the difference in quality. I have had a lot of people come to me over the last five years and ask me what the best CBD product was and where they could purchase it. I was never able to confidently answer that question until I met Ben. When I heard about Ben & Sarah’s farm and what they were trying to accomplish with the hemp fields, I was captivated. They are farmers who have the consumer’s best interest in mind and their hearts are all the way into the product that is being produced. Soil Friends Farms, where our hemp is cultivated, has been chemical and pesticide-free for 7 years. I have finally found a product that is cultivated locally, and I can confidently recommend this line of CBD to anyone who asks.

The quality of your CBD starts in the plant’s growth with a cannabinoid known as cannabigerolic acid or CBGA. This is the molecule that all other cannabinoids are built upon. Each cannabinoids structure is different, and those different structures bind to docking sites within our body’s cells causing the cell to change shape. This shape change causes the cells receptors to make a neurotransmitter. This change caused by the fusion of cell and cannabinoid will create an event within the body. For example, the vanilloid receptor is responsible for pain, inflammation and body temperature. Once the cell that has bonded with a cannabinoid has landed on the receptor signals are blocked. This is the same reaction that is produced when you take Tylenol for a headache. Hemp farmers could also be called trichome farmers, we raise our hemp for the trichomes that it produces once it matures. This is where all the medical value of the plant is housed. We at Michigan Hemp Solutions take pride in the quality of our product knowing it is your family we will be taking care of. This is the same reason Soil Friends Farms has not used chemicals or pesticides on fruit or vegetable crops. The quality of the plant starts with the field and hands used to raise it.
