The consumer demand for CBD products is rapidly growing as more brands and people become familiar with the countless alternative wellness benefits, applications, and uses of CBD.
The companies and products emerging are creating a cluttered market with an overwhelming abundance of products to choose from.
This leads to the question every consumer should be asking – is all CBD the same?
As you drift down the countless paths exploring different product types; lotions, oils, tinctures, softgels, and more – it’s very important that you know that not all CBD is the same. CBD products vary significantly by manufacturer.
In this market expansion, you have many “bad actors” that are taking advantage of the demand, making it harder to find a trusted resource for the high-quality CBD hemp products you should demand.
It’s important to select a high-quality CBD product. CBD hemp is currently classified as a natural product and though many natural products do not require certified lab testing by the FDA, lab testing is extremely important for CBD products as many CBD products do not have the CBD advertised on the label and almost no brand share lab reports or test for safety (to test that the products are free of pesticides, heavy metals, residual solvents, and microbials).
While the FDA does test some CBD products for CBD content to make sure that the CBD label claims are accurate, the FDA does not have the bandwidth to test all the CBD products in the marketplace today. However, the FDA does not perform any of the safety tests.
While most states do not require testing, many states such as New York have passed laws requiring these tests, which will be implemented in 2021.
It’s important that you understand and are comfortable with the methods used to manufacture, extract, and produce the products delivered to your hands. This makes it important for you to do your homework about the CBD products you are interested in buying. You want to make sure you are making a purchase from a brand you can trust, one that is trusted by others.
Additionally, you want to know where the CBD hemp you are using is grown. There are countless global sources of hemp, and each has its own unique characteristics. Many CBD companies purchase CBD from overseas and package it as their own. This means that you won’t know their growing methods, the quality of the soil they grow the products in, the extraction methods, and the production methods. For instance, in the US, pesticides are not allowed in the cultivation of hemp, while they might be allowed in other countries. These brands are purchasing CBD at the lowest cost, so they improve their margin on a sale to consumers.
High-quality CBD products derived from hemp that is cultivated with stringent quality and safety standards is our “north-star” at High Falls Hemp NY. With regulations and guidelines in the United States being strict as it pertains to farming, we believe that “Made in America” is paramount and a guiding principle for High Falls Hemp NY.

The brand evangelizes the importance of education and transparency with consumers about the CBD products you choose. Regulations about the requirements for finished products are slowly coming online, state by state, at High Falls Hemp NY, we answer to a higher authority, our customer.
High Falls Hemp NY’s CBD is Made in America
We grow in the historically bountiful Hudson Valley in upstate New York, working with New York state farmers who have had roots in the area for generations. We cultivate using the best horticulture tactics from our skilled artisan farmers. By doing so we generate high yielding cultivars that meet all requirements of the New York State Department of Agriculture and Market in accordance with the Farm Bill of 2014.
From our farm in upstate New York, we are proud to state that all of our CBD is Made in America. Our CBD hemp is grown and extracted from the fertile soil of New York State. It ships directly from us to your hands and we control the entire supply chain from our seeds to your soul. We believe it’s essential that our consumers know where the products they put in and, on their bodies, comes from – every step of the way. We take great pains to ensure that we remain the original and trusted CBD in New York.
High Falls Hemp NY’s CBD Clean Extraction Process
While more expensive, and requires experienced lab technicians, our products are extracted using supercritical C02 and winterized using food grade ethanol to filter out various impurities. We believe this is the best method to date which will provide some of New York’s best CBD distillate on the market.
Methods other than C02 extraction are becoming more and more popular due to the lower costs, within the industry CO2 extraction is known as a versatile ‘tunable’ solvent, the gold standard.
On the many taste tests with CBD extracted using ethanol which we (at High Falls Hemp NY) have conducted, we noticed a discernable difference (for the worse) in the taste and flavor. This continues to reinforce our use of the more expensive CO2 extraction methods.
An added benefit of our CO2 extracted CBD is that we do not need to add any flavorings to cover up a bad taste as other brands do. As a result, consumers benefit from a premium quality product that further reinforces that not all CBD is created equal.
High Falls Hemp NY Triple Lab Tested
Once our product is produced, we have it tested at a third-party lab to assure it meets not only the New York state requirements but High Falls Hemp NY standards which include; cannabinoid content and composition, free of microbes, molds, pesticides and heavy metals, we will move forward in the formulation process.
High Falls Hemp NY Production
High Falls Hemp formulates our tinctures using hemp seed oil instead of MCT (coconut) you commonly see within the industry. By doing so, we believe this is a cleaner carrier by giving the consumer a smooth less earthy flavor without the lingering aftertaste that coconut leaves.
High Falls Hemp NY Product Transparency
