Hemp is a variety of Cannabis Sativa, selectively bred to grow fast and tall and produce seeds and plant fibers for agricultural and industrial purposes. Hemp has been used in everything from clothes, plastics, paper, and food. Consider hemp to be a cousin of cannabis. Hemp, by definition, contains less than .3% THC; without the THC, it loses all psychoactive qualities. Ralph's Garden contains zero THC.
The hemp used in our product is grown legally in Kentucky as part of the Agricultural Act of 2014.

Alex Brandon founded his company in January 2017, drawing inspiration from both the time he spent in Colorado and his East Coast roots. Alex graduated from a top University followed by a successful career in the media industry. Deciding to take a chance, Alex left the comfort of a 9-5, moved to Boston and decided to build something of his own. Ralph's Garden is a culmination of all of those chances taken.
When Alex isn't busy at work running Ralph's Garden, he is busy writing for alt-weekly newspaper Dig Boston, where he covers the cannabis industry. He is also a regular attendee and volunteer at New England’s many cannabis related lectures, events, and conventions, including NECANN, Mass/Cann’s Freedom Rally, and The Harvest Cup.
WHO IS RALPH?
Ralph is Alex's dog and the inspiration for Ralph's Garden.
Ralph lived his first 6 months on a Navajo reservation in northwest New Mexico before arriving in Boston. He is a pretty chill guy, likes the beach, and chasing tennis balls in Boston's many dog parks.
