We’re often asked about the meaning of the Moon Mother Hemp name.
Although simple, there’s significance behind our moniker.
In order to properly tell the story, we need to break down each word and its importance to the foundation of Moon Mother Hemp.
Symbolizes the rhythm of time
Our founder, Jessica Bates, CCH, found herself working on botanicals at night after her second child was born.
She initially started creating products under the moon and with the moon phases.
Women and herbalists have been crafting products with the phases and harnessing the moon’s energies to amplify the healing benefits of their remedies from the beginning of time.
Those who are in tune with the moon’s phases and energies know that it amplifies products depending on the phase and goals.
Jessica and Edward have taken to this moon alignment approach when planting and producing the line.
For instance, seeds are planted near the Spring Equinox. Then, seedlings are transplanted and harvested depending on following moon cycles and seasonal shifts.
Furthermore, our CBD Dream Balm harnesses the slow, dark energy of new moon create a quiet product. It’s started on a full moon and the oil is decanted on new moon to promote restful sleep.
Represents creation and nurturing
Although the Moon Mother line has something for everyone in the household, we firmly support ending the stigma around parents, especially mothers, consuming cannabis.
As parents themselves, Edward and Jessica, recognized their experience of stress shifted when they incorporated CBD into their own lives.
Jessica’s dedication to women’s health and wellbeing plays a role in Moon Mother product development.
The entire line is organic and the ingredients carefully selected to support healing and wellbeing for body and mind.
Therefore, it’s simple to incorporate moments of self care into a mother’s everyday.
Expression of healing and peace
We have a passion for extremely clean products that are safe for the present generation and sustainable for the future.
Hemp not only supports the wellness of individuals, but additionally has deep roles in healing the earth.
Prioritization of biodynamic and sustainable farming practices are ways the company honors both the earth and the hemp plant.
These methods go above and beyond standard organic guidelines:
- No pesticides in our soil as hemp can absorb toxins and pass them to the consumer
- No monocropping to reduce the spread of pests and disease
- Rotation of crops to maintain the integrity of the soil
- Planting cover crops to avoid erosion
