How We Came To Be
In 1994, newly pregnant Ah Warner knew that life would never be the same after she walked into the Fremont Hemp Company, realizing the possibilities for creation and production were limitless. 1995 saw the birth of her daughter, Darienne Zoa, along with an overly ambitious catalogue of hemp products she called Cannabis Creations, which included candles, stationary, hand-dyed yarns, fabrics, handcrafted pillows, and even a line of hempseed goodies called Incredible Edibles. Meanwhile, she rolled up her sleeves and began researching the therapeutic benefits of blending hempseed oil with healing botanicals and essential oils. As her first potion, Ah made a Lavender and Tangerine Massage oil, still prominent in the now Cannabis Basics line-up. Shortly after, Ah put together a team of friends and mentors, (Sandi and Mary from Brookside Soap and Lisa from Full moon Rising), to help with the expansion of her line of health and beauty aids.
Over the following years, Cannabis Creations Body continued to gain momentum, winning industry awards and features in major publications. With the support of alternative retail stores and mail-order catalogues, her fledgling company experienced organic growth.
Although moderately successful, Ah found that sourcing pure ingredients for her products became difficult and risky. The healing advantages, of cannabis-derived topicals, were overshadowed by the lack of education and an immature market. With a growing family, Ah realized that the risks were too great. In 2005, after ten years of producing natural medicine, she reluctantly suspended production, took several part-time jobs and vowed to continue to be an active cannabis-industry supporter.
Ah’s entrepreneurial spirit was rekindled when a friend asked her to help open a medical marijuana access point near her home in Seattle, Washington. Warner jumped back into her kitchen lab and began to reformulate and redesign her original formulas, focusing on the healing fundamentals of the pure and natural cannabis flower. Happily, the company officially reopened its doors in 2012. Since then, her line of award-winning topical therapies has been reborn into the company that you see today.

Whole Plant Therapy
Organic Hempseed Oil and Premium Cannabis Flower are the foundation of this beautiful line of herbal therapies. We blend with other powerful botanicals such as Echinacea, Tea Tree, Arnica Montana, Aloe, Shea Butter, and Vitamin E to create localized topical applications that heals naturally. Organic Hempseed Oil and Cannabis Flower Oil is a miracle combination for a myriad of ailments
Hempseed Oil is 80% essential fatty acids, mostly omegas 6 and 3, which make it the optimal nutrition and moisture protection for the layers of the skin, our largest organ. It is a poly unsaturated fat, with long molecule chains that enable it to penetrate the epidermis, dermis, and subcutaneous layers of the skin and deliver local therapy. Hemp Oil is the oil pressed from the seeds of the industrial hemp plant. Industrial hemp is currently defined as a Cannabis sativa varietals that contain less than .03% THC. Hempseed Oil is fragile, susceptible to heat, light and oxidation. It should not be heated at high temps and always stored properly for freshness.
Cannabis Flower Oil is produced by harvesting the resin derived from the flower of marijuana strains that are rich in THC, CBD and other cannabinoids. The levels of these compounds depend on the strain, climate and processing. For topical applications we have found that Cannabidiol is truly the jack of all trades as it has been shown to help a much larger group of medical concerns. We now know that CBD and THC partner as antagonists and allies in the human body.
Terpene profiles in Cannabis Basics are extremely important to the efficacy of therapy, they are the building blocks for certain vitamins, pigments, resins, essential oils and cannabinoids. They also interact creating a range of different smells, qualities and effects. There are over 120 terpenes produced by cannabis, some alter permeability of cell membranes allowing in more or less THC, others affect serotonin levels and dopamine chemistry. Cannabis Basics also utilizes the terpenes from multiple non-cannabis essential oils.
Combined, cannabinoids and terpenes in cannabis have natural anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties designed to fight infection. Cannabis has regenerative effects on body tissue stopping the progression of skin sores while repairing skin from herpes simplex, fever blisters, eczema, psoriasis, acne, hemorrhoids, dandruff, dry chapped skin and up to second degree burns. The anti-inflammatory and anti-spasmotic properties of Cannabis help with swelling, bruising, muscle and joint pain, cramps, strains, contusions, headaches, and migrains. Analgesic qualities help patients deal with the pain associated Arthritis, Tendonitis, Carpal Tunnel, Neuropathy, PMS, Fibromyalgia, Diabetes, Multiple Sclerosis, Rheumatism, and many movement disorders.
Cannabis health and beauty aids are considered any product used on top of the skin and are less than .03% THC by volume. They act as powerful localized therapy without any psycho-active effects. They will make you feel great but will not get you high.
Why Organic Hempseed Oil?
Hemp oil is rich in Essential Fatty Acids, Omega’s 3 and 6, that feed, heal and protect skin tissue. Easily absorbed, it helps deliver other botanicals deep into the layers of the skin. We use only fresh, organic hempseed oil, grown in Canada and cold pressed without being chemically or steam sterilized, leaving all of the healing, nourishing properties intact. The legal landscape in the United States is changing rapidly. Currently the cultivation of industrial hemp is only legal in a few states.
