History of Brown Hemp

Brown Hemp Inc has its origins as a result of the Brown family starting a hemp CBD company in 2009 under the protections of the Michigan Marijuana Act of 2008. Joe Brown the father started growing and manufacturing industrial hemp CBD products in Michigan before any other person or company. Joe Brown helped build the hemp CBD market in Michigan under the medical marijuana protections until 2014 when Mr. Brown was one of the first Americans to earn a 7606 federal research permit to grow hemp legally in Kentucky and then the only single company  licensed to legally process hemp under a food processing license from the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development for production of hemp CBD products

From 2009 to 2020 Joe Brown lobbied and advocated for Hemp in Michigan and continues to do so today. Brown Hemp Inc is owned and operated by the oldest Brown son, Russell Brown the 3rd. Russell and his family have proudly help create the Michigan hemp industry that we have today.

Brown hemp Inc is a seed to finished product company. All our hemp is grown on our small sustainable family farm called Holy Ground located in Saranac, Mi on the high banks of the Grand River. Our no till and no spray farm is the perfect place to pasture raise our smokable, food grade and cosmetic hemp flowers. Holy Ground farm is an herbal farm were we currently grow seven different herbs, botanicals and multiple cultivars of industrial hemp used in our Whole Plant Hemp Formula products. We proudly process all our herbs, botanicals and hemp into essential oils.  Brown Hemp Inc then manufacturers all the essential oils into high quality herbal remedy hemp products sold in the health and wellness wholesale and retail markets.
