My name is Toni Fox and my husband Barry and I are the passionate owners of Hot Springs Hemp Company, llc which is located in beautiful and historic downtown Hot Springs, Arkansas.
We are successful veterans of the cannabis industry and were founding members of many of the largest cannabis industry organizations and grass roots cannabis reform groups in the country and have advocated for cannabis policy reform for the past 30 years.
We have built several successful cannabis businesses in Colorado including our first Medical Marijuana business which opened in 2010. 3-D Denver’s Discreet Dispensary llc (DBA 3D Cannabis Center) was a 3500 square foot medical dispensary and 14,000 ft indoor cultivation facility in Denver.
At the time, we constructed the world’s largest cannabis garden viewing corridor which offers over 100 linear feet of amazing views of the entire cannabis cultivation process. It is still there today and is simply a must see in Denver, Colorado.
We always strived to educate our patients and really understand what their needs, expectations and ultimate goals were and to provide the best quality, organically cultivated cannabis options available at that time.
We were recognized as an exemplary cannabis business model and assisted city, county and state officials and law enforcement with plant knowledge and rulemaking application.
On January 1, 2014, we converted that location to 100% Adult Use “Recreational” Cannabis sales and we were recognized as the 1st Ever Legal Adult Use Marijuana Sale in the Country and arguably the World.
We opened our second Adult Use “recreational” dispensary/store location in Salida, Colorado in 2014 and also built another 1 acre of cultivation.
In 2016 & 2017 we sold both of those businesses and were going to retire comfortably and quietly in beautiful Hot Springs, Arkansas and raise our awesome son. The plan was to relax and enjoy ourselves – fish, hike, golf, maybe take up some new hobbies.
When we moved to Hot Springs, we thought our cannabis business days were over…
But, in 2018 the Federal Farm Bill was passed into law, essentially relegalizing cannabis hemp as an industrial agricultural crop. We watched the birth of this new modern hemp industry with hope and gratitude that hemp is FINALLY going to be able to be grown and processed and utilized for so many things.
We have always instinctually known and used CBD but now we have medical studies and the “Endocannabinoid System” which is now widely recognized and researchable. There is so much information and so many product options on the internet.
In 2019 we met a local hemp farmer and became quick friends. He told us about the new industry and the new CBD retail stores that were starting to appear all over.
Medical Cannabis is just starting to thrive in Arkansas. It’s still in it’s first few years and the laws will hopefully allow for more cultivation and dispensaries which results in lower prices to the consumer.
We have ALWAYS believed in the healing/wellness properties of the cannabis plant but we were consumers from the THC side of things and were very skeptical of hemp CBD products until we starting using them and researching it… Lots of research and trials.
When we realized that CBD is arguably the most beneficial and useful cannabinoid in the cannabis plant we started researching the price to the consumer and were shocked and saddened at the retail prices on these products. WHY ARE THEY SO EXPENSIVE???
We realized that we could provide an equally good (or better) product for a far lower price and our advocacy and entrepreneurial sides came roaring out…
After a bit of manual labor to get the store looking the way we wanted it to, we opened Hot Springs Hemp Company llc on July 1st 2020. It is your CBD store for quality affordable CBD products.
Our Daughter, Cheyenne moved down to Hot Springs in October 2020 to help us get the business up and running, assist with product formulation and production and is the main point of contact for the Wholesale / Private Label division. She can be reached via email at: [email protected] at the store (501) 701-4004.
We went to work and found a local Arkansas source for not only the CBD Distillate but for the farming of the hemp itself. We want to make 100% Arkansas Products. From soil to oil and from seed to sale. Hot Springs Hemp Company is the Natural Choice from the Natural State!
We offer our small batch Full Spectrum CBD tinctures and our THC Free CBD Isolate Tinctures in 500mg ($25), 1000mg ($45), 2000mg ($85) in multiple flavor options including Banana Cream, Blueberry, Chocolate Mint, Natural, Peppermint, Pina Colada, Strawberry & Watermelon. We are your CBD store for quality locally sourced CBD Oil tinctures.
Hot Springs Hemp Company is proud to be a NHA Bronze Member and share their mission. “To support the growth and development of all aspects of the industrial hemp industry”.
This is accomplished by:
• Educating and informing the public about the health, environmental, and economic benefits of reviving an industry that has been prohibited for over seventy years;
• Building a community of individuals, businesses and organizations to facilitate the growth of the industry;
• Working collaboratively with industry, government officials, and the scientific community to create and implement industrial hemp standards, certifications and regulations.
We firmly believe that American industry is trending towards bio-sustainability and hemp plays a critical role in the establishment of a new economic paradigm. The National Hemp Association is dedicated to shifting the perception of hemp as being an alternative crop to a mainstream commodity.
