The White Plume Hemp line includes CBD extracts and soft gel capsules made with organic hemp cultivated by hemp grower and activist Alex White Plume, the release said. Evo Hemp currently has 10-acres of organic hemp crop under contract with the Lakota tribe.
Through the partnership, Evo aims to use industrial hemp to empower small U.S. farmers and revitalize poor farming communities, the release said.
“We started Evo Hemp because we knew that creating a domestic hemp supply would yield jobs and create wealth for poor rural communities,” Evo Hemp president Ari Sherman said in a statement. “This mission brought us to the Pine Ridge Reservation, the poorest place in the United States, with the hope of bringing economic prosperity.”
