Virginia Industrial Hemp Coalition (VIHC) is a grassroots driven advocacy organization whose goal is to educate, inspire and rally Virginians to restore the free market for Industrial Hemp, a low-THC oilseed and fiber crop, a variety of Cannabis.
There is already clear support in our state for industrial hemp. In 1999 and 2001, the Virginia legislature passed supportive resolutions calling for a revised federal hemp policy. The VIHC believes that further legislative changes are necessary to create a safe and well regulated environment to once again allow Virginia farmers to responsibly grow, process, and compete in a burgeoning domestic U.S. industrial hemp market.
Successful hemp grows begin with premium genetics. Tree of Life Seeds has stabilized genetics that lead to compliant industrial hemp grows that produce bountiful harvests, offering hemp farmers and medical growers alike a true connoisseur’s menu of CBD varieties.
The industrial hemp market is saturated with inconsistent and low content Cannabidiol (under 5% CBD) cultivars which makes whole-plant processing and extraction far less practical. Our genetics, harvested from our indoor and outdoor plot production, undergo extensive 3rd party laboratory testing and prove to be stabilized for high CBD expression.
We take pride in our selection method propagating and testing thousands of phenotypes each year to isolate sought-after traits and ensure best possible cannabinoid ratios in our genetics. All our stock is cultivated in a 100% living organic soil garden using essential oil foliar sprays in vegetative state as a pest/fungicide preventative.
Our cultivars are sought after and recognized worldwide. Cherry Wine is currently the most well-known High CBD cultivar in the United States. Legally growing outdoors since 2015, we have worked closely with each state-level Department of Agriculture. We have worked with dozens of farmers from coast-to-coast to grow successful and compliant hemp crops.
