OUR STORY


Kingdom of The Happy Land

Deep within the Appalachian Mountains in Western North Carolina is a kingdom, its boundaries are lined with towering Hickory, Oak and Poplars all of whom witnessed the birth of freedom during the darkest time of our nation’s history.  This kingdom was forged from the earth by former slaves who found resolve and solace in this lofted forest. Turkey foot fern, moss covered granite, mountain laurel, green with new life coupled with the hope of perpetual liberty encouraged former captives to declare their independence in a country which had denied their race the pursuit of happiness. This kingdom is known as KINGDOM OF THE HAPPY LAND.  It represents peace and new life and opportunity.  Dedication to preservation and production has propelled us to utilize fields hewn by those before us to bring hope to others. Green hemp, rich with flower and oil once again grows within the kingdom.  KINGDOM OF THE HAPPY LAND is alive; whispers of encouragement can be heard echoing from the ridges as we endeavor to work along with nature to bring its remedy to those who need help, peace and comfort.  


The Plant

In 2015 and 2016 the North Carolina General Assembly passed legislation allowing industrial hemp to be grown in the state once again after nearly 80 years of Federal prohibition. This landmark moment in our state’s agricultural history was met with an upwelling of support, bringing together a group of people from different backgrounds, all sharing the same vision to bring back a plant of such importance.

Together, Kingdom Harvest encompasses farmers, botanical extractors, marketers and local retailers forming a seed to sale synergy. From planting through manufacturing and sales, all aspects of our operations are under the careful control and oversight of our group. We selected a high quality strain of industrial hemp and, with the support of members of the community, planted our first crop at the Kingdom in 2017. We employ minimally invasive planting methods and nurture the crop without the use of pesticides.


The Kingdom Harvest Products

Our Kingdom Harvest crop flourished under the unique growing conditions of the Kingdom. The crop grew so well it presented an opportunity to create a new method of processing designed to capture the special attributes this plant possesses.


Our team of experienced botanical extractors developed processes that both activate those most sought after phytonutrients while preserving delicate compounds in their natural state.  The result is a Whole Spectrum Hemp Extract (WSHE): a combination of multiple extracts from the industrial hemp plant, each minimally refined and each providing a substantially different fraction of the phytonutrients found within the plant.


To make our Whole Spectrum Hemp Extract, we start with the whole flower from the hemp plant grown in the Kingdom of the Happy Land. The flower portion of the hemp plant contains the greatest concentration of those most sought after phytonutrients. We take the flower through different processes producing multiple extracts, each with their own unique qualities. Each extract is a “full spectrum” extract, meaning it contains a broad array of the naturally occurring compounds from the plant, not a highly refined fraction or isolated molecule. We carefully select the conditions of each process to bring out a different spectrum of compounds from the plant and then combine those extracts in special formulations for each of our final products. We developed our process to provide the greatest potential benefit from the plant while preserving raw qualities of the plant that are otherwise modified or lost entirely.


We use ethanol, the alcohol found in beer, wine and spirits, to make our extracts for our Whole Spectrum Hemp Extract (WSHE). Ethanol is plant-based, made through the natural process of fermentation of sugars.  Ethanol has a rich history in herbal preparations stemming from its powerful ability to extract a broad array of compounds from plant materials, maintaining the original ratios of the most sought after phytonutrients contained within the plant while extracting both water-soluble and oil-soluble components. Using gentle heat and vacuum, the ethanol is removed and recovered to be used again. Our extracts are blended into our final products, standardized on those most sought after phytonutrients from the hemp plant and are tested by an independent third party laboratory for potency and purity.

Will taking your products make me fail a drug test?
  • Our whole spectrum hemp extract (WSHE) contains a broad spectrum of components from the industrial hemp plant including trace amounts of naturally occurring components found within hemp plants that are often tested for in typical drug screens. Our products comply with the laws and regulations for the North Carolina Hemp Program; however, due to the naturally occurring components of the hemp plant, we cannot guarantee that anyone taking our product will pass a drug test. Please consult with your doctor and/or employer if this is a concern.


    Why don’t you make health claims about your product? 

    • Our products have not been evaluated by the US Food and Drug Administration and we can’t legally make any specific health claims. We do, however, strongly encourage everyone to research the benefits of hemp extracts and their contents. There are many quality resources that have assembled libraries of peer-reviewed research and other information. Please be sure that the information you rely on is rooted in science and properly cited.
