Additionally, we've developed state of the art inventory and fulfillment systems that are uniquely capable of catering to the characteristics of almost all hemp-based products, including foods, beauty products, raw materials and more.

From functional foods to personal care, from pet products to nutraceuticals, or from lifestyle products to textiles, we have access to some of the most respected and technologically advanced manufacturers in the world. We only work with manufacturers who adhere to the strictest quality controls, rigorous testing standards, and have a commitment to sustainability.

Working with General Hemp means building the highest quality standards into your products, which can be key to longevity and success in a dynamic market.

Legal

Our legal team ensures that our companies operate securely in a dynamic and challenging legal landscape. Even though hemp products have been in existence for centuries, lingering misperceptions remain. Our founding partners spent years and millions of dollars establishing legal precedents and intellectual property for a safe, secure, and legitimate hemp industry. Industrial hemp products face unique legal challenges domestically and internationally related to import and export, food safety, controlled substance status, approved medical uses and claims. These present many risks when endeavoring to establish or grow a business in the industry. General Hemp's dedicated legal resources ensure that our partners and subsidiaries are effectively protected from these risks, in addition to maintaining a strong legal foundation that any company would need.
