Berrybrook Natural Foods

Have you seen the red wagon at the corner of East and Kenilworth in Dilworth? These wagons carried hemp products 'til 1937 when hemp threatened the oil industry and sparked hemp’s demise, but the health food world continued to love hemp. Hemp biofuel is 86% greener than gas, uses 50% less water than cotton production, and it regenerates soil! CBD Oil from hemp also balances the endocannabinoid system of people and pets. Try Berrybrook’s organically grown CBD Oils for yourself, and God’s green Earth.
