Blue Ridge Extractions (BRE) is a Veteran owned family ran company, focused on extracting CBD oil and concentrates from industrial hemp. Our objective is to produce the highest quality industrial hemp based cannabidiol (CBD) oils, distillates, and isolates available on the market consistently and at a competitive price. All our retail products have been made in house with oil produced by us from industrial hemp that was grown locally on family farms. We look forward to sharing with you our craft and our quality!
Our Story & How We Started
Here at BRE it was not just two veteran brothers and a wife taking advantage of the hype that came with the legalization of Cannabis (hemp), It was about healing and helping others. In the beginning of this green rush, it was the wild west, having friends in the industry we heard about all the horror stories of the unregulated oils being used, zero safety protocols, and potentially harmful methods of extraction being used to produce low quality oil. Mark and Jordan have had a knack for cannabis their entire lives, and after both spending a lifetime mastering their crafts as Aviation mechanics, which has some of the most stringent quality control programs to be adhered to, they both knew they had the knowledge and know-how to shake the industry up.
Our original plan was to solely be an extraction company so they we could provide other retail companies with top tier CBD oils to use in their products, giving their customers something truly unique. During the first 6 months of business, Borouj (Jordan’s wife) was diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder, and after dealing with war injuries for years and having a lifetime supply of Ibuprofen from the VA, Jordan decided to research and develop his own products from the oils we had produced. He made a custom terpene blend for his loving wife Borouj to combat her illness, and one for himself in an attempt to alleviate his constant battle with inflammation and pain, what happened in the following days would change our lives forever!
For the first time since Borouj’s diagnosis she was seeing a definitive reduction in her daily symptoms and started to feel healthier and more energetic than she had for quite some time, and Jordan decided one day he no longer needed to eat his morning daily dose of Ibuprofen 800. Our quality of life drastically improved, and since we originally got into this business with the passion of helping others, we knew what we had to do! We immediately began planning how to pivot our company from selling wholesale CBD exacts, to using our premium CBD oils to produce the highest-grade retail CBD products on the market, and just like that Blue Ridge Extractions was born!
Today, we are proud Cannabis users who are tireless in our effort to be the top manufacturer of CBD products in this country, happily dedicating our lives and inspired to provide you with the same comfort and quality of life we ourselves enjoy living!
