INGREDIENTS

Are your products 100% pure?

While the majority of our offerings contain Organic & Wild harvest botanical materials.

In this line of work the word “Pure” is undependable. We focus on sourcing our materials from suppliers that practice situational assessment when it comes to meeting our Distinct Standards. 

Situational Assessments are better known as SWOT Analysis, a strategic planning & management technique used to help a person or organization identify strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats related to the success of harvesting a specific material.

To us, that is the way to yield a close to Pure extraction.

Pure meaning wholesome. We do not mix, cut, falsify, misrepresent, or manipulate our botanical offerings. When using an Organic or Wild Harvest botanical it is important to consider that the material may be cultivated in a more "pure" environment but can still face processing that taints its integrity. That being endangerment, forced labor, unrenewable packaging, cultural exploitation, and simply lies to market to people that want to do good.
