The Dorset Hemp Co. started to look to make their own products from the raw material. The only way they can ensure they know the quality.
Harvey has a culinary background as an apprentice Chef for Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s River Cottage, which had given him fantastic working knowledge for adapting recipes.
He uses one method in the kitchen all the time, trying to keep things simple. Most of of his recipes are made with just three simple high quality ingredients.
This idea is taken from one of Hugh’s first books which Harvey studied during his apprenticeship, titled ‘Hugh’s Three Good Things’. In discovering this Harvey learned how to create various delicious tasting food without the need to over complicate.
"I carry this lesson with me daily in the kitchen at Dorset Hemp Co, and have often found it’s the simplest recipes that people come back for the most."
They reached out to The Good Budz to supply raw hemp for their food production which was initially intended for self medication, they then explored different infusions and consumption methods which turned out successful.
After having had such a good experience they knew that they wanted to make a product which was available to others, regardless of income.
These are the founding ideas of The Dorset Hemp Co. which just happened to be in line with The Good Budz mission too. They had seen the benefits on themselves, family and friends who had requested personal medical samples.
On the 11th of January the logo and company was founded. Within that same month they had quit their day jobs and focused all their energy on product innovation and production. They focused all their energy on the dream business.
"With all our products we aim to create gluten free and vegan recipes we believe to be truly delicious, then begin finding ways to infuse them with high quality CBD. At times this can be a challenge."
For example, with the Cookies and Cream bar there was a real task of trying to find vegan chocolate that would melt properly in order to absorb the infused cacao butter, all whilst maintaining its sweet yet hempy flavour.
