Hemp is full of therapeutic compounds called cannabinoids and terpenes, the majority of which are located in the fine powder that dusts the hemp flower (trichomes). These trichomes are delicately attached and can be easily displaced when the plant is jostled.
Many other companies mechanically harvest their hemp, a strenuous processing method that can result in a significant loss of trichomes. When trichomes are lost, the overall potency of the final product is reduced. For EQ, hand-harvesting is one of the many strategies our farm employs to create the highest terpene and cannabinoid profile to provide you with the highest quality CBD products.
