The Natural Way to Better Health
At Farmulated CBD, we strive to deliver high-quality, affordable CBD products to our customers. We are dedicated to growing the healthiest non-GMO hemp using sustainable farming practices. Our hemp-derived CBD extracts are made in-house using CO2 processing to extract the CBD and terpenes from the plant material, resulting in a full-spectrum extract that preserves the hemp's naturally occurring byproducts. All of our in-house products are third-party tested for heavy metals and pesticides in addition to a full, customer-accessible cannabinoid profile.
Our promise is to treat our customers as we would treat our own families by providing safe, effective CBD products, great value and outstanding customer service.
We are dedicated to listening to what our customers need and delivering on this promise. We are also making a difference that matters by donating a portion of our proceeds to provide clean water to the Amazonian people of Peru.
The Founders of Troyer Farms Potato Chip Company of Waterford, PA embarked on a new business venture in 2019: hemp. The plant's naturally occurring byproduct, CBD, quickly became an important crop to the agricultural and economic communities in Northwestern PA.
The Troyers have grown potatoes, corn, wheat and other crops for nearly 50 years in Erie County. With the passing of the 2018 Federal Farm Bill and Pennsylvania’s Industrial Hemp Program, Troyer Growers became a permit holder to grow industrial hemp on their Waterford farm. With manufacturing and branding backgrounds from 40+ years of making Troyer Farms potato chips, Mark Troyer had the desire to be vertically integrated, or to grow, process, and distribute CBD products all from his Waterford farm. Today, Farmulated CBD sells its brand in multiple retail outlets in addition to its online platform.
The CBD processed at our facility contains less than 0.3% THC as required by the federal permit guidelines.
"Potato farming has become very mechanized; hemp, on the other hand, requires a very hands-on approach taking us back to our roots."
