About Us

The Freedom CBD Difference

Starting from the seed to the soil, all the way through extraction, we produce nothing less than the highest quality CBD oil due to the fact that we are completely vertically integrated.  We have spent years breeding our select genetics, developing our soil blends, and perfecting our extraction process.  Through a collaboration with Freedom Hemp Co, we get superior feminized CBD genetics, produced in their greenhouses, cultivated on their farms, then processed at our Oregon Department of Agriculture (ODA) food-grade GMP facility here in central Oregon. 

We use state-of-the-art extraction equipment and maintain our “Industrial Hemp Handler” registration.  We meet or exceed all laws and regulations pertaining to hemp to provide security and safety to our company as well as our customers. We constantly monitor industry trends to develop best practice protocols and products to bring the benefits of hemp and CBD to society as a whole.

Homegrown in the United States, right here in beautiful central Oregon, we take pride in being industry leaders and innovative thinkers, the first of our kind. Through a very effective and continuously advanced genetics program, Freedom Hemp Co hand selects phenotypes, then raise clones and seeds. This allows them to know and control the quality of their hemp strains so they can cultivate and provide only the best, while ensuring their crops have optimal yields, supreme quality and are then processed in our lab to produce market-leading CBD oils for the masses.

Our Lab

Our hemp biomass is cryogenically extracted using food-grade certified ethanol to create a complete cannabinoid and terpene full profile/spectrum CBD product.

We use ethanol as our method of extraction and do so for some very vital reasons. By using ethanol we can produce a very clean, pure food-grade material.  Next, we remediate and remove 100% of the ethanol used to extract the cannabinoids and terpenes, leaving behind no residual compounds in our end product, continuing to ensure only the best of the best!

Our Team

Brian Smalley

Brian Smalley

CEO

Brian Smalley, entered the cannabis/hemp industry in the mid 1990’s. He studied botany and spent years traveling the world, expanding his knowledge in breeding & genetics before settling down in the greater Portland area. For nearly a decade he split his career between the corporate world & the cannabis industry. In 2006, Brian followed his calling, leaving corporate America and solely returned to the industry for good. With the growing acceptance & demand of cannabis hemp products worldwide, Brian found his niche redirecting his primary focus to hemp.

He has created several companies within the hemp industry, including the Green Oil Machine which is a home based oil extraction product that he sells world-wide. He retains deep roots within the industry and has developed a network of sales avenues and contacts. He also provided an extensive catalog of hemp genetics that are the building blocks for our genetic programs.

He’s become a pioneer in hemp processing, developing extraction methods, teaching those who aspire to be like him & ultimately improving the lives of many. His reach and abilities are endless; and the farming & processing friendships he’s made over the years are the foundation of our company.
