A new wave of high-end Hemp products, ignited by the OG strain, Abacus Diesel™.
Abacus Diesel™ comes from the original Abacus™ cultivar and was created in 2019 by Colorado CBD Seed™, our sister company. Abacus™ originates from Humbolt County, and we are responsible for bringing it to market in 2017. After years of breeding with and stabilizing the original Abacus™ cultivar, Abacus Diesel™ was born. It is a phenotype that was meticulously selected for its specific terpene profile that gives Diesel its intense gaseous aroma.
Abacus’™ lineage is OG Kush x Purple Urkle x Landrace Hemp. After years of backcrossing and growing out phenotypes, Abacus Diesel™ was created and chosen for the overwhelming gas terpene profile. Abacus Diesel™ has a higher percentage of terpenes and a different terpene profile than the original Abacus™. Diesel Abacus™ is a proprietary cultivar of Diesel Hemp™ that was created and brought to market by us and is the inspiration behind our entire brand.

HEAD OF CULTIVATION
Born and raised in rural Illinois, Graham developed a love for being outside and working with plants early on.
Graham pursued his degree in Forestry Sciences, but It wasn’t until he started cultivating Cannabis that he found his true calling. Graham spent years in the commercial marijuana industry honing his horticultural skills and learning all there is to know about this amazing plant.
Graham is extremely proficient in Cannabis cultivation, breeding, living soil, microbes, IPM (integrated pest management) and organic growing practices.
Graham has taken our grow operations to the next level, and does not settle for anything less than the absolute best when it comes to the plants and products that we produce.
HEAD OF EXTRACTION
Mark’s love for cannabis goes back many years but started professionally at a laboratory supply company. Here he acquired a vast knowledge of cannabis extraction equipment and techniques which he has applied to both the marijuana and hemp industries.
Mark has experience in hydrocarbon, solventless, CO2, and alcohol extraction, but specializes in post-processing. He has certifications in fractional distillation as well as cannabinoid chemistry and CBD isolation. He has a keen eye for detail and is devoted to making the highest quality extracts.
After 5 years of industry experience, Mark has found that terpenes are his true passion, so much so that he even named his dog Terp! Mark’s vast knowledge of chemistry and scientific methodologies are what make his extraction techniques and our concentrates, some of the best around.
The mission of Diesel Hemp™ is to share our passion through the boutique, high-end products that we produce ourselves. Our Cultivar-specific product line derived from our in-house bred and grown, proprietary cultivars are truly unique and rare. Our products are NOT made by someone else, our Hemp is NOT bred, grown or produced by anyone else, as we are truly a vertically integrated company, with 100% control over our supply and quality.
Integrity is paramount to us, and it is reflected in each product and the way we choose to do things everyday. Our hope is that you experience the curated and purposeful intention as the passion seeps out of each product. Enjoy.
