Palmetto Harmony, founded in 2015 and based in Conway, South Carolina, utilizes a lipid-infusion extraction process to create its CBD, full-spectrum products. Its solventless process, strict, third-party testing protocol and the organic certifications have been instrumental in the company’s growth and ultimately the decision by Earth Fare to carry the products, according to Palmetto Harmony.
Earth Fare, founded in 1975 in Asheville, North Carolina, operates 54 stores in 10 states.
Why the company was founded
“We are delighted to have Palmetto Harmony, one of South Carolina’s first-generation industrial hemp processors, be recognized for their superior product by Earth Fare, a regional food company that focuses on high quality,” said South Carolina Commissioner of Agriculture Hugh Weathers. “This is positive news for the South Carolina hemp industry.”
“Getting into Earth Fare has been a long-time goal for us. They have a very strict ingredient and product philosophy; the most rigorous and uncompromising in the industry. Their dedication to sourcing only the highest quality products is in alignment with our commitment to safety, transparency, and efficacy. We are excited and proud to be on their shelves,” said Palmetto Harmony Founder and CEO Janel Ralph.
Palmetto Harmony was created because of Janel Ralph’s daughter Harmony. She was born in 2007 with a rare genetic condition known as “smooth brain,” which produces multitudes of seizures that are considered untreatable by modern medicine, according to the company’s website.
Hemp Seeds are also said to stimulate production of antibodies and boost the immune system.
Directions for use: Hemp can be consumed as a food, a food supplement, a juice or a tea.
As a food source, Hemp Leaf, though perhaps not as nutritional as Hemp Seed, can nonetheless be enjoyed in salads, and even pressed to make a juice or a tea (see below).
In terms of health benefits, Hemp Seeds are a powerful antioxidant, and are said to be an important aid in the prevention of cardiovascular disease and strokes, while the Omega-3 GLA, ALA, and DHA found in Hemp Seeds is said to promote brain health as well as eyesight development.
Hemp is also available these days in medicinal form for specific, clinically diagnosed conditions.
Hemp is a multipurpose plant of the Cannibis genus and was one of the first known plants to be domesticated, no doubt due to its remarkable versatility.
As a food source, Hemp Seed contains all the essential amino acids and fatty acids necessary for maintaining a healthy and balanced diet. It is said to be a complete protein with an abundant trace mineral content.
