About Able Hemp

Home 9 About Able Hemp

Our passion for sharing high CBD hemp is cultivated through personal experiences of CBD’s therapeutic benefits and our love of sustainable farming. Having used CBD for many years now, we have seen remarkable improvements in our mental and physical health. Now we hope to pass on what we’ve experienced to improve our community in hope that they will feel as we do. More able. Our passion for sustainability and the hemp plant that led us here has also enabled us to envision how best to implement our passions. Simply put, we choose to grow.

Education and Stigma

We feel it’s imperative to erase the negative stigma surrounding cannabis and hemp. By communicating with our community, we hope to open up a dialog about what wellness means to all of us. We understand that everyone has different ideas of what “health” is. What we want to do is provide examples of how hemp and full-spectrum CBD can be a beneficial tool to help manage your wellness journey. Wherever you find yourself currently. 

Our wellness journey goes beyond our minds and bodies and spills over to how we farm. The sustainability of the land we farm is one of our primary focuses. We embrace regenerative farming practices including organic fertilizers, cover crops, and our use of buckwheat as a living mulch, rather than the industry standard of black plastic.  We experimented with this in 2019 and found it much more align with who we are and the plants did great. We also use other organic amendments like seaweed and kelp emulsion and integrate IPM (integrated pest management) strategies to keep our hemp and products safe from harmful chemicals. 

Our raw hemp extract is a full-spectrum hemp extract and always will be. Full-spectrum extracts are widely recognized as a superior wellness aid compared to isolated CBD sources as they contain a more diverse spectrum of cannabinoids. This is termed “cannabinoid-rich”. All three of our products have been crafted in small batches with great intent to produce effective results. We want you to feel our CBD working on you. Just as our wellness journeys are an evolution of our idea of what health is to us now. We invite you to explore all of our products and find what’s best for your wellness journey and, Feel the Difference of full-spectrum CBD.

Who is Able Hemp?

Nick grew up just a stone’s throw away from our first acre of hemp in Junction City, Oregon. With a feeling of deep connection to the land, his passion for agriculture began as a child growing up in Oregon working on his family’s small winery and vineyard. This followed him through his education at Unity College in Maine studying forestry and motivated his tenure in Oregon’s premium wine industry.  Nick is now spending his days doing what he has always wanted. Taking his wellness into his own hands and working at sharing his hard work with his community.

Kara’s passion for agriculture is a direct result of living in the Willamette Valley of Oregon. Since moving here in 2003 Kara has found herself more connected to whole foods, farming, gardening, and the feeling you get when you connect with real things like dirt and soil. Kara is often behind the desk of her public accounting practice, but typically there is some dirt under those nails. Kara is also the muse behind our whole-plant salve as her studies led to the development of at-home methods for CBD salves and tinctures that we have long incorporated into our regular wellness routine and now our products. Seeing the difference CBD has made in our daily lives is where the offering we present to you today originated.

We are also blessed with the help of two incredible canines. “Trucks,” our faithful companion since 2008, and “Hatch,” a newer member but a hard one to forget. Hatch is an 80 lb yellow lab with a personality that is impossible to not fall in love with.

Also, We’d like to thank all of our friends and family that have supported us through this process. Starting with my dad who let me borrow the family tractor to work our first acre (the same tractor I learned how to drive a tractor on at age twelve). Tad and Karen, who leased us our first acre and also are the suppliers of amazing honey we use in our CBD honey sticks. To our friend Alan, who helped spread compost on our first acre and is the reason we joke that we only have “one good shovel”. Our friends Brian and Janel in Philomath, who helped harvest and volunteered their time without any complaint. Our friend Tim who came to us via facebook in 2019, you are amazing as I do not know what I would have done without your patience and professionalism. You are truly one of a kind. As well as many other friends that came and helped, Mara, Jupiter, and to all the people we met along the way and who helped us harvest nearly 7,000 lbs of raw green hemp our first year. This has been and will always be a team effort and we are so excited to now be able to bring our community products that we labored tirelessly to produce. We couldn’t have done it without these people or our retail business partners in Corvallis and beyond. There are so many to thank, thank you all!

CBD and Helping Our Community

Able Hemp began with one acre of hemp three miles from where founder Nick Shown grew up. “The feeling we get here at Able Hemp is hard to put into words,” says Nick. “It really feels like coming full-circle knowing how this community has shaped me personally. This is exactly why I feel a responsibility to give back”. 

After spending that first year focusing on growing, Able Hemp is now focusing on giving back. We’re here to show our community what full-spectrum CBD is all about. We want to help people live a higher quality of life. A life with less pain and a greater appreciation for what wellness can feel like. And, doing so with plant-based therapies instead of pills.  

Able Hemp believes in grassroots business growth and wants our company to first benefit the community that has done so much in molding us as individuals and leaders. That’s why in 2020 we reached out to our closest community first, but the first year was tough. Spring of 2020 was spent watching the strings of society unravel. A global pandemic sending the world into a spiral. What did we do? We built a website to communicate to our customers and build our company. 

Since then, we have teamed up with many Corvallis-based businesses and got our local community what they wanted. Sustainable, effective CBD products at reasonable prices. During this time we have talked to so many people from all walks of life. Listening to stories of aches and pain as well as success stories. Each one of these warms our hearts and reminds us of what’s really important. Our community. 

If you haven’t met us yet, get in touch today and try some of our farm-direct full-spectrum CBD products and feel the difference of not just full spectrum CBD, but also the difference of a company that puts you first.
