Applegate is the “Napa Valley” of Cannabis

The bedrock geology of the Applegate Valley, combined with its sub-coastal weather is a cradle for hemp cultivation.

Gently sloping landscapes are abundantly irrigated by the Applegate River, and cooled by afternoon breezes. A mixture of oak savannas, conifers, madrone trees, and manzanita bushes cover the surrounding hillsides. Pilots refer to the Applegate as the ‘Blue Hole’ for the invariable sunny patch of blue sky that distinguishes this region from the fog-socked skies of the adjoining Rogue Valley.

Our state of the art greenhouses further allow for all-season, energy-efficient propagation and growing. We pair our geolocation, climate, natural elements and minerals with a diverse selection of plant strains to produce high-yielding, fine quality, CBD-rich crops.

Sweet Earth will produce its own seeds to ensure a constant and consistent supply of quality plants.

Sweet Earth

There are two types of cannabinoid receptors in the human body:

CB1 receptors are mainly in the brain and central nervous system whereas CB2 receptors are found in the peripheral organs and immune cells.

Our range of topical and edible products are designed to stimulate these receptors throughout our bodies.

Sweet Earth
CBD Beverages

Sweet Earth’s first product line will be focused on the 
CBD beverage market.

We have developed:








In states with legal cannabis for sale, binge-drinking rates have fallen 9% below the national average.

In California, recreational sales of cannabis outpace those of beer. Sweet Earth will be significantly healthier than sugar and alcohol, driving the revolution.


Considered a “superfruit” and packed with powerful antioxidants, Maqui has been used for generations in Chile as a natural remedy and to support immune system function.

CBD Maqui Berry Drink

Using Maqui harvested in Southern Chile, we combine this superfruit’s powerful antioxidants with the benefits of CBD.
