Rejuvenating Topical Botanicals
Nature is the best chemist. The balm ingredients are grown and extracted delicately to stay true to earth’s creations, preserving the plant’s biological integrity.
Kōkua products are produced from outdoor-grown hemp containing flowers rich in terpenes and cannabinoids.
The Bluegrass state has long been known for high quality cannabis. Kentucky has a premier climate, foundation, and geographical location for hemp flower production.
Over half of the surface rocks in Kentucky are limestones. Limestone layers contribute to soil nutrients and water-retention capacity. The soil provides a perfect dosage of limestone-filtered water to the roots of the plant, facilitating the absorption of the minerals.
In addition to prime soil, the geographical location fosters optimal growing conditions for hemp. The latitude has a direct impact on the photoperiod, to which the growth phases of cannabis are correlated. Indica cannabis varieties originated in the Hindu Kush Mountains, where a particular set of light cycles facilitate the flowering stage. Kentucky is situated on the same latitude line that runs through the Hindu Kush Mountain range, the 37th parallel, where the same photoperiod promotes optimal growth and flowering of cannabis with significant cannabinoid content.
Cannabinoid-rich hemp flower is sourced from Round Hill Farm. The woman-owned farm uses organic methods and is just a short distance, within 30 miles, of Kokua’s processing facility.
The farm is located on over 200 beautiful, diverse acres of land in Oldham County Kentucky and is home to rolling horse pastures, wetlands, woodlands, and a variety of animals. Round Hill Farm is a Monarch Butterfly Waystation, Certified Wildlife Habitat by the National Wildlife Federation (NWF), member of Kentucky Proud, and keeper of several beehives.
Hawaiian Haze: Hawaiian Haze hemp flower is a Sativa-dominant hybrid cross emitting sweet fruity flavors further complemented by undertones of soft pine and woody notes. The main terpenes found in Hawaiian Haze flowers include myrcene, alpha-pinene, beta-caryophyllene, and limonene.
CO2 in its subcritical, liquid phase enables extraction via low temperatures and pressures to preserve delicate therapeutic compounds, such as terpenes, CBDa, and CBGa. CO2 extraction offers unprecedented tunability and delicacy for processing hemp flower.
Kōkua’s founder has been immersed in research and extraction using CO2 technology for eight years. She published research articles in Extraction Magazine in 2018 assessing subcritical versus supercritical extraction parameters, as well as an in-depth analysis of fractional CO2 extraction as it relates to the cannabinoid content and profiles present in the extract over the course of the process run time. Marie personally developed her own preferred processing methods and regularly tunes her extraction parameters based on the assessment of the input floral biomass and cultivar characteristics.
Deep-Dive into the Daily Balm
Cannabinoids are molecules found in the hemp flower offering functional support by interacting with the cannabinoid receptors of our body’s endocannabinoid system.
Terpenes are the aromatic constituents of essential plant oils and extracts that function as major biosynthetic cellular messengers.
