Emerald Cannabliss was invited to Kentucky Hemp Works to tour their facility. Katie Moyer Arzamastseva, the owner of KHW, has got it going on down in Crofton Ky.. They are finding new ways to use hemp and experimenting with growing. Katie gave me a sneak peak as to what is next for KHW products. We also spoke about changing rules and regulations in the hemp industry. She has been in the industry since 2013, and worked with legislative to get the hemp pilot program started in 2014 in Kentucky.
KHW has teamed up with a local farmer to grow and manufactures most of her hemp goodies, including my favorite “green stuff.” The hemp root salve doesn’t have any active cannabinoids in it. The ingredients include parts of the hemp plant – hemp roots, hemp seed, beewax, and essential oils. You can use this on anything that burns, itches, or hurts. We have put it on just about everything including bug bites, sunburns, eczema, and dry skin. They also have firestarters, CBD oil paired with hemp seed oil, hemp seed oil by the gallon, and protein powder.
When Katie isn’t making hemp products, she is battling the good fight for hemp at Kentucky’s capital, Frankfort. She is fighting to make changes locally and on a state level, not just laws but regulations and rules. We spoke about her current task, changing AG rules and regulations to let hemp flow through the great state of Kentucky. I hope to team up with Katie in the future to bring more hemp education to my community.
She started with a sink and a fridge in a barn. She has since grown her location and brand with the help of her family and friends. They have some amazing things happening. I’m excited to offer you a brand that has so much heart and passion with what they are doing. Thank you to the Kentucky Hemp Works team for letting me come by!
