Old West Hemp announces partnership with Synaptix CBD

April 3rd, 2020

Old West Hemp Co, a Washington based licensed Producer/Processor, is proud to announce it has entered into a formal partnership with Synaptix CBD in order to bring high quality formulated CBD products to the US marketplace. Founded in 2018 in British Columbia by PhD Chemist Rupert Holmes-Smith and his business partner Joel Spisak, Synaptix has developed a line of high quality CBD tinctures, topicals, and vape juices, which are now available for sale to the US public at

“We’re extremely excited to be working with the Synaptix team. Our first step is bringing their great products to market, and we’ve got a lot more fun stuff lined up. Their team is also bringing a lot of great resources to our farm operation at Old West Hemp, and over the last 60 days we’ve put together a full lab – The synergy between the two efforts is really incredible, and they have been a pleasure to work with” said Chris Gromek, founder and president of Old West Hemp.

The initial Synaptix product line includes a suite of THC free formulations including 1000mg CBD tinctures with both AM and PM terpene formulations, as well as an extra strength 2000mg variety. “We are also excited to provide formulations for our four-legged friends – CBD tinctures for both small and large pets,” said Holmes-Smith. “We’re also bringing to market some really remarkable topical products – Synaptix Topical Salve and Restorative creams, which are extremely popular. While US law prevents us from really disclosing all of the health benefits of cannabinoid products, we are confident consumers will be very pleased, and that we are exactly what they are looking for.”

Synaptix products are available for online retail, as well as for wholesale distribution. “We are fully prepared to fill wholesale order requests, and we are excited to get these products to store shelves across the country,” said Gromek, “Our goal is to make it as easy as possible for you – Just fill out a wholesale request form on our website, email us at or reach out to us on our dedicated sales and support line at (509) 846-3096 and we’ll take care of the rest.”

You can find Synaptix CBD products at both and  Old West Hemp “Powered by Synaptix” products are available for purchase beginning April 8th.

Dollar Pre Rolls and the Art of Perception

Perception IS EVERYTHING! It’s been proven that wine tastes better when it comes in a heavier bottle. Beer from a bottle tastes better than beer from a can. Why? Because value is subjective, and humans often ascribe more value to things that they pay more for. This is an important phenomenon one that is not lost on marketers and salesmen. This phenomenon has taken hold of the CBD industry, and has created powerful incentives for business owners, manufacturers, and growers (basically the whole industry) to keep prices high.

Of course, after we announced our special Wholesale prices of $1.00 CBD Flower Pre Rolls last week, our Facebook feed LIT UP with posts from other Pre Roll manufacturers attempting to justify their own absurdly high pricing. Some of these folks are wholesaling Pre Rolls for $5, $6, $10 or more. That’s fine for retail, but basically criminal for wholesalers. It’s safe to say we ruffled some feathers.

A few recurring themes:

“There’s no way that’s 100% CBD flower!” – Wrong. Our Pre Rolls are 100% CBD flower. Aromatic, fluffy, compliant, dank, and most likely smoke better than what you currently have in stock.

“You get what you pay for!” – Dumb. The internet is full of meaningless truisms like this. Sometimes you pay too much for a bad product. Sometimes you pay very little for a great product – That’s the point of the market – Some suppliers are simply more competitive.

“Must be ditch weed.” – Wrong. Growing great bud is not easy, but its also not rocket science. America currently has a MASSIVE oversupply of Hemp flower – American farmers grew more smokeable CBD flower in 2019 than has ever existed before. The reality is that many CBD wholesalers aren’t efficient enough to offer our prices. We are strong enough to offer a lower price point, so we do.

But How?

1) We are seasoned. It takes our team a couple hours to properly grind, roll, and vacuum seal a pound of Pre Rolls. We’re done with your order while most other wholesalers are still putting their shoes on. Why are we so efficient? We’ve been doing this for years.

2) We are lean. There’s an old adage in the investment world, “Pigs get slaughtered.” The average price of compliant, smokeable CBD flower as of today, December 22, 2019 is between $250-$300/lb (and falling). A pound of flower yields roughly ~450 1 Gram Pre Rolls – That’s about $150 margin per pound. That’s just not enough margin for most wholesalers. But our overhead is lower, so we win.

For those of you that already have excellent bud, but don’t have excellent Pre Rolls – Our team is here for you too. Our Industrial Hemp Rolling Service is an easy and affordable way to get large quantities of vacuum-sealed, Total THC compliant Pre Rolls, fast. Our prices are the best in the USA.

3) We are Vertically integrated – Most Pre roll manufacturers aren’t also farmers. Plus our farm is remotely located, to keep costs low. Our competition isn’t growing, so they rely on external suppliers, and simply hope that nobody notices they are price gouging.

We’re engaged in the birth of the new American hemp industry – We want to make relationships that will last for life. We would much rather be YOUR long-term reliable supplier than worry about squeezing every last cent out of every single transaction. We already know that other wholesalers will join us in these prices eventually, as the market forces them to – And we welcome the competition!

And if after reading this you’re STILL skeptical, you can always request a free sample! Just email us at!

The Anatomy of a Perfect Smoke

What makes a truly great smoke, and what sets it apart from smokes that are dry, flavorless, or harsh? Take a quick tour of what it takes to achieve a First Class smoke…

Great Flower

There is no shortage of flower on the market. But how that flower actually smokes depends on a variety of factors. Moisture content, density, bud maturity, pesticide use, fertilizer use, trim quality, and terpene profile are all factors that play into the final product. Ensure you’re sourcing great, pesticide free and well tended flower. Big bud has visual appeal, and can indicate well tended, mature flower. But if you’re on a budget – worry not, smalls and mids will smoke the exact same as the bigs.

The Perfect Grind

Grinding flower is an art that is easy to learn, but difficult to master. It took us many thousands of pre rolls to develop our own specialty grinding methods and tools. You want the flower ground to a light and fluffy consistency – If its not ground enough, you’ll have poorly packed rolls. If it’s ground too much, you’ll have densely packed rolls that don’t hold a flame, and fall out the crutch. The trick is to get it just right.

Our Wagon Wheel CBD Flower, freshly ground and ready for packing.

Precision Packing

Consistently great packing is tough, and typically requires a good team and specific machinery. Iteration is key, and you must learn to identify subtle mistakes. Does your flower condense and leave pockets of air in the cone? That’s a sign it’s not well ground, or improperly shaken. Aesthetics matter too, and the way that your flag is folded (or twisted, gross) can impact the visual quality of the final product.

Storage and Humidity

Unless you want dry, harsh joints, you should store them in a properly seasoned humidor. Typically you want below 71 degrees Fahrenheit and between 65%-73% humidity. Too much humidity and you might ruin your rolls with mold or mildew. Too little and they will smoke too harsh.


While hipsters may scoff at the notion of presentation as an important part of an enjoyable experience, the rest of us know that there is a different feel to a well presented smoke. One must account for human preference, and many humans have an implicit bias toward beauty. 

Timing and Frequency

The final piece of the perfect smoke is not so much about the roll itself, as much as about the consumer. Some strains offer different experiences, depending on the individual. If they smoke frequently and have high cannabinoid tolerance, they may eschew even the dankest flower. Often, pairing a smoke with a cup of coffee or a glass of wine is a great experience.

If you enjoyed this read, and enjoy a good smoke – Make sure to check out our 1 Gram corked glass Wagon Wheel smokes – Pure excellence and class.
And if you’re in need of a special gift for the holiday season, our Santa’s Helper smokes are really the perfect stocking stuffer. You can also order our Plastic Tubed or Untubed varieties with special bulk discounts.

USDA rules and Total THC Compliance

If you’re in the CBD or Hemp industry, you’ve likely heard or read about new regulations proposed by the US Department of Agriculture. These regulations will effectively make nationwide CBD requirements more restrictive, following a “Total THC” guideline, rather than the Delta-9 THC guidelines approved by Congress last year in the 2018 Farm Bill.

We believe these changes are bad policy, and will result in cause significant harm to farmers nationwide, which is why we made sure to leave a comment on the proposed rules. If you want to have your voice heard on these proposals, we recommend you leave a comment as well!

As fate would have it, we have been operating under Total THC regulations prior to this news, as we’re bound by the regulations of the Washington State Industrial Hemp Research Pilot, RCW 15.120.010.

These regulations are quite restrictive, but we’ve already navigated these waters, and as such we are one of the few Producer/Processors with compliant CBD flower.

Our products use Total THC compliant “Wagon Wheel” CBD flower

If you are a CBD retailer, distributor, or consumer, I recommend reaching out to get some of our Wagon Wheel hemp flower. Supplies are limited! You can check out the COA here, and reach us at to place an order or request a sample.
