Cultivation For The Planet

From the processes surrounding the cultivation of hemp, to the methodologies of extraction, laboratory testing, and formulating the raw ingredients into final products, it is factual to say, not all hemp CBD products are alike.


Sun grown outdoor hemp cultivated using regenerative agriculture farming methods results in nutrient density and plant profiles far surpassing alternatives. Named after it’s ability to reverse climate change by rebuilding soil organic matter and restoring degraded soil diversity, regenerative agriculture focuses on reciprocity, on the give and take of humans and the land that makes our entire existence possible. It puts more back into the Earth and it’s ecosystems than it takes out. In the agricultural world, regenerative agriculture grown hemp is becoming the standard that everyone aims for.


The term “Regenerative Agriculture” is used to describe
a system of farming and grazing practices that increases biodiversity, improves watersheds, enriches the soil, increases carbon sequestration, and enhances ecosystems.


You may be familiar with some of the terms and practices used to create an overall regenerative operation like:

• no-till
• crop rotation
• no chemical or pesticide usage
• grazing rotation
• composting and manure fertilization

These practices together can also be called “holistic management.”

Regenerative agriculture turns away from practices of the industrial agriculture model as these practices break the carbon cycle and cause the soil to become void of organic matter.

In the industrial agriculture model, the carbon cycle is interrupted through practices like heavy tilling, monocropping and/or leaving land uncovered by crops, pesticide and chemical usage. Each of these three practices destroy soil structure. When we use methods of planting without soil disturbance, we are allowing the soil to maintain more moisture. This moisture is now available to grow more plants. Cover cropping and crop rotation increase organic matter and provide more adequate residue on the surface, shielding against evaporation, wind and water erosion. With cover crop, seeding into existing crop residue, with no till methods, encourages the conditions for microbial life in the soil. This increases nutrient cycling and reduces the need for synthetic fertilizers.


The Importance of Production and Extraction

The source of hemp is key. CBD represents an unregulated market, and quality is key to have a positive experience and tap into the benefits. You deserve products that will work efficiently and effectively, product that aren’t riddled with synthetic systemic pesticides, contaminated with molds and microbials, or left with residual solvents from extraction. As the market expands for CBD products, producers and manufacturers often look for ways to grow as much hemp as possible with little consideration for the impact on the environment.

Mowellens takes a different approach. We use only regenerative agriculture and biodynamic farming methods to minimize the environmental impact of the growing fields and agricultural practices. We use a certified organic process of food grade cryo-ethanol extraction and short-path distillation to produce the ideal cannabinoid and terpene profiles from the plant. By using a closed-loop recirculating process, we recover 90% of the solvent for reuse. This goes further to reduce the impact on the environment because there is less waste compared to other methods.

Cultivation is the art of growing in symbiosis and letting nature create biodiversity. We believe in lo-tech indigenous practices to improve soil health and produce nutrient dense, powerful plant profiles. Starting with our farms in New York and California, our focus on regenerative cultivation is what allow us to produce products with results you can see and feel. This focus also fuels our purpose to leave this Earth a better place than when we arrived.
