James & James
Craft Hemp Seltzer
Let go of the day.
In 2013, Jim Ott & Ian James met as agricultural consultants working for separate companies. They recognized, the therapeutic & economic power that CBD promised. Ian with his business savvy, recognized that with Jim and his epic agricultural knowhow, they could create a business that was both beneficial to the human body & profitable.
Jim & Ian, along with Jeremy Raab founded CFH in 2014 and they created a genuinely vertically integrated company. Proprietary hemp strains would be designed at a genetic level, then grown & harvested on their privately owned farm. They would also oversee extraction, formulation…everything, all the way to packaging & shipping.
In this way, complete control was maintained throughout every step of production.
During this time, Ian James was diagnosed with colon cancer. It had advanced rapidly & taken everyone by surprise. In October of 2017, Ian passed away.
When the time came to create a hemp beverage, the decision was made to honor a lost friend. James & James was born!
