About Hempoteca

Hempoteca is a project that wants to inform people about the infinite possibilities that offers one of the most amazing plants of this planet, hemp/cannabis – cannabis sativa. Used for thousands of years, (China, 6500 B.C), the hemp has been used for different needs such as paper (first bible by Gutenberg, 1445, United States Declaration of Independence, 1776, still conserved today!), textile, rope, sails production (Columbus on his trip to “India”), food, boots and medicinal purposes that are a common argument of medical studies around the world.

The founders of the project Hempoteca are a long time enthusiasts of this amazing plant. After the liberalization of industrial hemp in Croatia in April 2019, they decided to open the first webshop in the Istrian region based strictly on hemp products.

All the products are grown with their Slovenian partners in the Vipava Valley. The cultivation is made without chemicals and pesticides, 100% ecologic and organic.
In our catalog you can find CBD drops(LINK) and CBD pasta(LINK) with different percentages of CBD, natural cosmetics(LINK), first class CBD flowers(LINK) and food obtained from hemp. (LINK Brasno).

It is important to mention that all our products are legal in whole EU because they contain less than 0.2% of THC, but they are all rich of CBD, the most active substance inside the hemp plant.

The goal of the project is to improve the quality of life and health using strictly quality natural products. It is also very important to show the people the potential of this plant, which has been forbidden and discriminated almost in all world countries since the second half of 20th century. You can read more about the hemp history and about CBD on our BLOG.

Beside the webshop, we supply all the interested companies with our products, from small to big quantities.

If you are interested in any of them, contact us on info@hempoteca.com.

Hemp to CBD process

Cultivation

Our hemp plantations are located in Vipava valley, a region boasting superb agricultural conditions, where the finest wines have already established global recognition. Along with great care and profound knowledge, we grow our hemp as naturally as possible, using NO chemical fertilizers and pesticides.

Extraction

When processing hemp, we only use the best, fully matured, hand-selected flowers. We perform our extractions with a highly customizable extraction system, relying on supercritical CO2 technology. Our batches are small, so we can have full control over the quality of the end product.

Quality

We first test the extracts of all our products inhouse. After meeting the strict criteria, we send a sample to a third-party laboratory for further analysis. Only when we sure the product cannot get any better, it is time for it to reach our customers.

CBD

All of our products contain extracted CBD that is naturally present in the plant, along with the rest of cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids and other compounds.
