It’s Direct Primary Care done right.
Farmhouse Hemp has done more than refine hemp oil extraction, we’ve created something new. Hemp rosin is the result of our passion and commitment to the production of solventless CBD oil. We apply only heat and pressure to organically grown hemp to create the purest hemp CBD oil on the market. Our hemp rosin preserves all of the terpenes, essential oils, and other cannabinoids found in the hemp plant. This results in an improved flavor and aroma and a pure, full spectrum product. Farmhouse Hemp makes everything in small batches at our farm in Fort Collins, Colorado. Our hemp is grown organically, our rosin is hand pressed and ingredients are sourced locally.
GenoFAB. The return on research investment in biotechnology has been steadily decreasing over the last 10 years. Some think this situation is the inevitable consequence of biological complexity. We think that biological complexity can be decrypted with more and better data.

It allows research organizations to increase the quantity and quality of data they can produce with their existing resources. It reduces the probability of project failure by extracting actionable information from raw data in real-time so that project stakeholders can take corrective actions as problems arise.
