Our mission is one of healing.
We want to restore health and well-being through education, wellness programs, and high-quality cannabis products. At our farm in San Diego County, California we are able to grow all year round, making this an optimal location for a future educational wellness center and research facility. We have started with high-quality hemp seeds and the four principles of organic farming — health, fairness, ecology, and care. This vision for agriculture inspires environmentally friendly cultivation and production.
The four Principles of Organic Farming include:
- Sustaining and enhancing the health of soil, plants, animals, and humans as one and indivisible.
- Farming based on the living ecological systems and cycles, work with them, emulate them, and help sustain them.
- Built on relationships that ensure fairness with regard to common environment and life processes.
- Managed in a precautionary and responsible manner to protect the health and well-being of current and future generations and the environment.
Inya Hemp products are made in small batches and slow-cooked in carrier oil. This process of Decarboxylation and Extraction provides a full spectrum of cannabinoids and produces a minimal amount of waste. We do not use chemical processing to produce isolates or Co2 Extraction due to the amounts of crude waste produced and the loss of the full spectrum cascade effect. Our full spectrum products contain so much more than just CBD or CBG, including a wide range of beneficial cannabinoids, terpenes, and other phytonutrients. We never use pesticides or herbicides on our crops. We rigorously third-party test at every stage from seed to shelf so you can feel confident you are getting the highest quality product on the market.
We want everyone to know that Hemp is one of the most useful plants on Earth. For thousands of years, the hemp plant has been used for food, textiles, paper, fabric, and fuel oil. Hemp was an important crop from Colonial times through World War II, when it was last widely planted across the United States for the war effort. Then the Controlled Substances Act of 1970 made cannabis a Schedule I drug. Schedule I drugs are considered to have a high potential for abuse, addiction, and no medical use. This was widely criticized by the medical community at the time, many physicians had been prescribing marijuana for seizure disorders and depression. This Act halted scientific research and ended the growth of hemp as well due to the difficulty of regulation and testing of the two plants. Hemp and Marijuana are both Cannabis plants, but the cannabinoid levels are very different. Hemp naturally has very low levels of THC and higher levels of CBD.
Under the 2018 United States farm bill, industrial hemp production was federally legalized. It removed hemp, defined as cannabis (Cannabis sativa L.) and derivatives from the definition of marijuana in the Controlled Substances Act. Before the Farm Bill of 2018 passed, cannabidiol oil or "CBD" and the psychoactive "THC" had no legal differentiation. Today, modern hemp processing technologies have made it possible to create alternatives to gasoline, plastic, and other petroleum products that can reduce our reliance on expensive fossil fuels and reduce pollution. The hemp plant is a renewable resource that can be produced domestically. It grows quickly, naturally resists plant diseases, requires little weeding, thrives in most climates, and enriches the soil it grows in. Cannabis is a very powerful alternative medicine that will eventually lead to less need for pharmaceutical medicine. Pharmaceutical companies heavily lobby federal agencies directly to prevent the liberalization of marijuana laws due to the drop in the use of multiple medications including medications for pain, depression, anxiety, seizures, sleep disorders, glaucoma, and psychosis to name a few.

Here are some of its most important applications:
Alternative Medicine Cannabinoids from the hemp plant offer a wide range of health benefits from autoimmune disorders, chronic pain, PTSD, diabetes, epilepsy, gastrointestinal disorders, glaucoma, MS, and sleep disorders to name a few. All animals with a spinal cord have an Endocannabinoid System (ECS). This is the system that helps regulate homeostasis. The article by By Martin A. Lee on July 01, 2020, Endocannabinoid Discovery Timeline, 25 years of groundbreaking research — an annotated history, explains this very well. https://www.projectcbd.org/science/endocannabinoid-discovery-timeline
Food and Nutrition Hemp seeds and hemp oil are highly nutritious and delicious. Hemp seeds are an excellent source of protein, minerals, and dietary fiber. Hemp is the only plant that contains all of the essential fatty acids and amino acids required by the human body. These essential nutrients affect a variety of body functions, including metabolism, the skin, mood, behavior, the brain, and the heart.
Body Care Due to its high content of beneficial oils and natural emollient properties, hemp is becoming a common ingredient in many skincare, hair, and cosmetic products. It is a good alternative to the toxic chemicals present in many petroleum-based lotions and cosmetics.
Paper Hemp is an ideal material for making paper. It regenerates in the field in months (unlike trees which can take 30 years or more to become harvestable after planting.) Moving towards the use of hemp for paper can help save the world's forests. Hemp has been used to make paper for thousands of years. It makes a fine quality paper that is naturally acid-free and does not become yellow and brittle or disintegrate over time like conventional paper.
Fabric, Textiles, and Rope Hemp can be used to make a variety of fabrics, it is similar to cotton but more durable. Hemp is also excellent for making rugs and other textiles. Hemp is the traditional rope-making fiber due to its flexibility, strength, and resistance to water damage.
Fuel For centuries, Hemp oil has been used as lamp oil. It began to be phased out in America in the 1870s when petroleum was introduced. Hemp oil can be used to create biofuels to replace gasoline for diesel engines. Unlike fossil fuels, biofuels are renewable and produce less of the greenhouse gas carbon monoxide.
Plastic Alternatives Standard plastic is made from fossil fuels using toxic chemicals. Almost everything we buy is wrapped in cellophane and our landfills are full of it. A variety of alternatives to plastic can be made from hemp.
Building Materials Hemp-based materials can replace wood and other materials used to build homes and other structures including foundations, walls, shingles, paneling, pipes, and paint. The modern hemp building materials Hempcrete are lightweight, waterproof, fireproof, self-insulating, and resistant to pests.
