My passion for the state of Kentucky and the prospect of being a small part of the future of hemp agriculture is part of what led me to this decision. I also share the belief that living an organic lifestyle is something worth promoting, especially in an otherwise largely overprescribed society. I was thrilled to learn the values I hold dear, are consistently in line with the overall direction of dwell CBD.
