About Us

Overview

Western MA Hemp is Massachusetts’s local supplier of herbal CBD wellness products. We handcraft the highest-quality CBD oil products right here in Easthampton, Massachusetts.

Our mission is to better the health of our local community by crafting superior natural medicine. Our products blend whole-plant herbal extracts with full spectrum Massachusetts CBD oil to increase potency and efficacy.

To ensure that we are exceeding safety and quality standards, we have our CBD products tested by a third-party lab in Massachusetts.

Organically Grown Massachusetts Hemp

All our CBD products begin with high-quality Massachusetts hemp.

Led by founder and expert hemp cultivator, Michael Lupario, our passionate team grows premium CBD hemp flower on our small farm in Chesterfield, Massachusetts.

From seed to harvest, each hemp plant receives individualized care and is never treated with synthetic pesticides or fertilizers. This ensures the quality of our CBD products and the safety of our customers.

Supercritical CO2 Extracted in Massachusetts

We select only the best CBD hemp flowers for extraction. The flower is the part of the hemp plant that contains the highest amount of cannabinoids and terpenes.

We partner with a certified and licensed Massachusetts processor that uses supercritical CO2 extraction. This method results in a high-quality full spectrum CBD oil that is clean, pure, and potent.

Locally Foraged Herbal Blends

Hemp is not the only medicinal plant that you will find in our CBD products.

We journey across Massachusetts foraging for other botanicals that are commonly used in traditional herbal medicine.

After gathering the herbs, we perform whole-plant extracts, utilizing century-old techniques. These extracts provide synergistic effects with the CBD oil and help tailor our CBD products towards specific functions.

Handcrafted CBD in Massachusetts

Once we have processed our hemp and medicinal plants, we handcraft our CBD products in small batches. Our line of products features 3 different forms to fit both need and preference.

Every batch we craft is then sent to a third-party lab in Massachusetts to ensure that it exceeds safety and quality standards.
