Back in mid-2013, I went to check on my status regarding an application I had sent regarding a patent pending CBD chewing gum called CanChew. They were looking for folks like you and I who were dealing with chronic pain and were interested in cannabinoid therapies.
This particular day, there was no longer an informational site, but it was now an ecommerce site.
I was so excited to see this, that I build a site (https://cbdgum.networkofhemp.com, which I finally incorporated into this site) in a day or so, and contacted MJNA for wholesale opportunities. I got a quick reply from their then CEO Troy Nihart, and he was super kind and took care of me as one of their first wholesale clients.
Not long after the gum, came the full hemp extracts under the brand Real Scientific Hemp Oil. Their blue oils came out first, if memory serves. And I remember when they were selling for upwards of $700 for 10g of oil. Being the first to market, pushing the envelope, and creating the infrastructure to support being the tip of the spear in a new market was expensive back then.
There were hiccups in supply occasionally. Eventually they came out with their gold oils, which were and still are an epic product.
And if my memory is correct, my little shop was responsible for about 10% of their revenues. And since then so much has developed in this industry. From plant genetics to extraction methods to delivery methods, watching this industry bloom has been a great blessing. And awe inspiring.
So to hear that RSHO went through tests that have taken 2 years to accomplish to prove that their RSHO-X products are shelf stable for that whole time period, having lost a negligible 5% in potency and did not develop microbial contamination was a case of confirmation bias that I have.
That being that RSHO products are of the utmost quality, and that is now documented through 3rd party testing, which you can find in their press release below.
