“PSH is a hemp farm, cannabis brand and supplier based out of central Illinois carrying a wide range of CBD and THC products. We started the company by carrying only products that originated from our farm before eventually sourcing from other Illinois hemp farms to expand our product lines and production capabilities. From there we began supplying shops across the state while working with local product manufacturers such as Whimsy Tea Co. and Community Bath to carry a more diverse and unique product line,” Samuel Brubaker, Founder of PSH.
“We are thrilled to be part of the downtown community in the heart of the Prairie State. Our biggest goals are to educate and spread awareness as we continue to collaborate locally, build community and grow as a company,” Brubaker said.
PSH welcomes the public to help them celebrate their grand opening with a day of festivities. To start the day off, a brief ribbon cutting ceremony will be held at noon followed by games and other activities. Live music will be performed by Public Display of Frenship from 3pm-6pm. Light food will be catered by Nu-Voh Restaurant. In addition to the other fun there will also be giveaways and a 10% discount on everything in store that day.
About Prairie State Hemp: Prairie State Hemp (PSH) is a hemp farm and cannabis supplier founded in 2020. The farming operation takes place in Mt. Vernon IL, while distribution is based out of Springfield at their storefront. The company began as a wholesale operator supplying head shops and CBD dispensaries across the state until eventually opening a web-based retail delivery service in the Springfield area with nationwide shipping.
