Pott Farms is an ethical, kind, and restorative company. We are committed to using regenerative practices to responsibly produce great CBD.
What does it mean to us to be regenerative? It means that our systems are designed to restore and sustain rather than deplete our resources, and to fairly distribute the fruits of our work.
As an L3C (low-profit limited liability company) based in Washtenaw County Michigan, our processes are grounded in our commitment to justice. Our goal is to increase access to and understanding of hemp-based wellness products, and to produce those hemp products with the utmost care for our land, our community, and for ourselves.
Our soil is the key to our amazing CBD. We cultivate a diverse set of microbial life by adding compost amendments, not tilling, and keeping cover plants growing year round. Our soil provides our hemp plants all the nutrients they need to be healthy and resilient without the use of fertilizers, pesticides or herbicides.
We hand craft our CBD extract from our own hemp flower using food grade ethanol. We refine the extraction by freezing and filtering the solution to remove impurities - a process called winterization. The finished extract has the full-spectrum of cannabinoids and terpenes to provide you with a complete range of effects.
We choose ingredients from producers that align with our purpose, and always choose local options when available.
We choose packaging that keeps our CBD fresh while being easily disposed of in responsible ways.
Pott Farms was created by kind people who believe in the healing powers of cannabis and who want to create a better way of doing business.
Robbin Pott created and leads Pott Farms. Her experience as a lawyer and public policy researcher in child welfare helped her to understand that a major obstacle to families finding stability was a lack of supported economic opportunity. Pott Farms is using restorative solutions to address this problem. For the past three years, the company has been exploring farming practices, including cultivating living soil and growing different hemp varieties, as it has designed a prototype regenerative farm that trains young adults from communities disproportionately harmed by cannabis prohibition and the war on drugs.
Pott Farms is co-founded by a diverse group of hopeful people. We believe that a company can be a wise steward of our resources, care for the people who both produce and consume our products, and fairly distribute the wealth that it generates.
