Organic. Period.
Quality from passion.

Founders’ statements

Andrea Bamacher

We combine care, passion and whole-hearted dedication to create organic hemp products for people who want to take more proactive control of their own health. Our organic CBD oils are not only used to correct imbalances in the body - people in good health can also use them in smaller doses to promote inner equilibrium. And helping our bodies maintain the right balance is one of the best things we can to do prevent illness.

ELKE MORITZ

I can scarcely say just how happy I am to be working with this wonderful plant, to be part of a movement that is driving the acceptance of hemp, and that is raising awareness around the globe of its many positive attributes, and of its history as one of the oldest medicinal and industrial plants known to humankind. I am delighted that more and more people are seeking out organic hemp products as a gentle way of promoting their health and well-being.

Fully certified organic – from field to final product.

Seed planting and harvesting

Quality hemp begins with the ground it is planted in. We carefully select the fields where it is grown, as this is the only way to guarantee sustainable, organic produce – without the use of herbicides, pesticides or other chemicals.

In close collaboration with organic farmers in the region around Lake Neusiedl, we cultivate around 200 hectares of land. With expertise, care and passion – and zero compromises. We only plant and process EU-certified organic industrial hemp varieties which have been specifically bred to almost entirely eliminate the psychoactive ingredient, THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). Ground samples, multiple in-house analyses of the plant material and strict external audits by the Austrian Agency for Food Safety (AGES) and the Austrian certification and inspection body for organic produce Austria Bio Garantie (AT-BIO-301) safeguard a fully organic product of the highest caliber.

Extraction and refinement

We process the highly nutritious hemp seeds to produce high-quality organic hemp foodstuffs, and derive tea and extracts from the leaves and flowers. The CO2 extraction method is extremely gentle, using pressure and heat to secure the valuable parts of leaves and flowers, resulting in an initial raw extract.
This raw extract is subject to further production steps to generate our CBD- and CBG-rich whole-plant extracts. These contain all cannabinoids that occur in the plant itself, plus flavonoids, terpenes and phenolic compounds. Substances that the human body cannot utilise are carefully removed.

For our organic CBD premium extract, the CBD whole-plant extract is refined further, until only pure CBD in crystalline form remains. This is all performed without the use of solvents or additives. To ensure product safety and the highest possible quality, every batch is subject to multiple in-house tests and analyses, as well as external audits. All Medihemp products are certified as organic by the Austrian inspection agency ABG and bear the AT-BIO-301 label.

The Deep Nature Project

"We develop natural products that do people good and assist us to live active and healthy lives."
Andrea Bamacher, CEO

At the Deep Nature Project, we take our responsibilities toward the natural world, ourselves and each other very seriously. We are convinced that when we, as humans, live in harmony with nature, we can enjoy greater health, awareness, inner strength – and, ultimately, greater quality of life. That is the thought that underpins all Deep Nature activities.

We believe in sustainability and fairness, and put that belief into practice – day in, day out.

The Deep Nature Project, based in Gols, Austria, was borne of the desire to develop natural products that do people good and assist us to live active and healthy lives. Our team is almost 40 strong and is led by the founders themselves, Andrea Bamacher and Elke Moritz. Together, we work to make the wonderful properties of hemp, known for millennia, available again to humans and animals. The proven quality of Medihemp is now available for animals as well. Our dedicated brand offering for pets large and small, Vetrihemp, was developed in close cooperation with veterinary experts and comprises organic CBD oils.

Research and development

We invest considerable time, money and human resources in research and development – to keep abreast of new ideas and technologies, and to raise the quality of our products even further. 

Our stated aim is to ever-increase the bioavailability of our organic hemp extracts. The higher the bioavailability, the better the body can absorb the nourishing ingredients of hemp. The insights gained through our own research efforts, and through our partnership with the International Institute for Cannabinoids (ICANNA) in Slovenia, are employed to drive innovative product development. 

In autumn 2017, we succeeded in launching the first-ever organic-grade cannabigerol (CBG) extract. And we shall continue to work tirelessly to make good use of the power of hemp.
