There has been a lot going on over here. We’ve been working hard to get new products and new flower on the market, and to remain competitive in a market that was practically overwhelmed when so many thousands of farmers wanted to sell their crops. We are grateful to our customers for sticking with Old Crow. Our prices have been high because we are committed to offering the highest quality hemp flower and CBD products available. In the fall when they were seeing farmers and brokers daily offering to sell them “smokable hemp,” I had several customers tell me explicitly when they were reordering, “you have the best.” I always responded by saying, “Thank you. I will never get tired of hearing you tell me that.”
It’s a crazy world out there though friends. I had one customer call me concerned because he’d failed a drug test after smoking some of our Special Sauce. He wanted legal advice, but since I’m not an attorney, all I could do was send him the COA that shows that the hemp was compliant with applicable laws and refer him to an attorney that I know has had success with similar (but different) cases. I was glad when he replied to my email to tell me that although the drug test came back positive, it was NOT positive for THC, but for cannabis. I have not gotten an update from him to hear if it adversely affected his job, so I hope it did not since he was acting lawfully. I know that many police officers are still instructed to write up possession of hemp as possession of marijuana and let the judge decide, so caution is still advised at all times when in possession of hemp or CBD products. Know your rights. Be kind. Be respectful.
But anyway, onto the GOOD news! At the beginning of the year we began offering several new products: Full- and Broad-Spectrum gelatin capsules with MCT oil, and Full Spectrum extract with coconut oil in 500- and 1000-mg strengths in 1-ounce bottles. We still need to get the photos up online, but you might’ve already seen them in the stores. We are very happy to announce today that we are now preparing jars with some beautiful, new high-CBG hemp flower! It is beautiful! Look for it where you buy Old Crow, and if you don’t see us in a store where you’d like to buy it, let us know, and we’ll reach out to the retailer.
If it’s not in, they’ve given up on it. We have been busy finding some great new buds! It literally smelled like cannabis the instant I got to the door of the plane in Medford last month. I need to share some of the photos I took. Fantastic! So we found some fine examples of the Oregon CBD strains, of course, but we’re most excited about our farm partner who is curing up the Siskiyou Gold and the Bubba Kush!
You might have already noticed, but we’ve been filling pre-rolls and we’re calling them Jibboos because you know “Mama sing sing when she gotta Jibboo Papa sing gotta Jibboo!” We’re not making all of them available in or posting them for sale online here, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have them! Just let us know if you want us to twist some up for you in your favorite flavor!
As if that’s not enough – wait, who am I kidding, it’s been a long time since we’ve posted, so there should be more – We are glad to announce that we will also soon be offering 25 mg Full-spectrum (with all of the cannabinoids extracted from the hemp, including less than 0.3% THC) and Broad-spectrum (THC-free) gel capsules, and 1-ounce tincture bottles of full-spectrum CBD oil in both 500 and 1000 mg strengths! We love to hear from you, so please feel free to leave a review, drop us a comment, or call if you have questions.
While it is not quite true that every Oregon farmer has had their hemp tested for mycotoxins and pesticide residue, we are glad to report that one of our farmers has provided a clear pesticide report on the Special Sauce. We had to buy some Suver Haze and some Hawaiian Haze as well to be able to offer a few more options. While it is true that most hemp farmers do not use pesticides, we will continue to request and provide these test results when possible to better serve you.
We now offer organic, hemp rolling papers for those of you who, like me, prefer to roll your own, but we are also very happy to be offering the Volcano Vaporizer from Storz & Bickel. You may already know, but the Volcano Classic Analog or the newer Volcano Digital is a great way to quickly medicate with the essential oils from your hemp or other botanical without the concern of inhaling the burnt plant matter.
We are also finalizing talks with established manufacturers who will be helping us bring other products to market since we keep getting asked about other forms of CBD. Please do not hesitate to Contact Us if you have questions or we may be able to help you get what you need.
