Kaua’i Hemp Company (KHC) was established in 2019 with a mission to usher in a new wave of sustainable agriculture and organic farming in Hawaii through responsible farming and production of Hawaii-grown hemp-derived CBD and CBG products. Hawaii has a long history of creating industry around agriculture, from sugarcane to pineapple to tropical flowers. However, over the past several decades our community, particularly on Kauai, has watched as much of our farmland has been leased to out-of-state big ag and seed companies that use conventional farming methods that include the use of toxic pesticides that lead to a host of undesirable consequences.

Kauai Hemp Company’s founder

Daryl Kaneshiro

and his family have been farming on Kauai for the past 100 years and have watched the progression and influx of conventional agriculture companies moving into Hawaii. Daryl recognized that he had the opportunity to promote safer and healthier farming practices using organic farming techniques while also providing clean and effective organic hemp-derived products for the community and thus, Kauai Hemp Company was born.


During the formation of Kauai Hemp Company, Daryl’s foresight included handing off the important responsibility to the next generation (KHC Team) to carry the vision forward. This team consists of experienced entrepreneurs, legal and medical professionals, political experts, hemp farmers, and compliance experts who have gained knowledge and intellectual property over the years in the hemp industry to develop successful systems in such a complex, fast-growing, and comprehensive industry.

Our hemp farm and processing laboratory are located on the south shore of Kaua’i in ‘Oma’o, on a property that was once part of a 220-acre sheep farm. Sheep are still used to this day to maintain the landscaping around our solar panels and non-active farmland.


With thousands of different uses for industrial hemp, our company believes that hemp can fill the void that was left when the sugar and pineapple plantations ceased operations by ushering in a new era of agriculture and manufacturing in Hawai’i. Hemp will become a vital part of the economy, and will relieve some of Hawai’i’s dependence on tourism to support our local economy.


Kaua’i has a history rooted in agriculture. Kaua’i has watched a number of different agricultural industries come and go over the years, leaving a vacuum for jobs and industry. It is our hope that hemp will fill this space and create sustainable long-lasting jobs and economic growth on Kaua’i.


Our company is the first USDA-certified organic hemp farm in the State of Hawai’i. We were certified by Oregon Tilth as they are a comprehensive and well-known certifier. We use organic farming practices to ensure we are creating the safest highest-quality hemp-derived CBD and CBG products for you.

Our outdoor farm utilizes tropical sunlight, fresh air, water, and volcanic mineral-rich red dirt to create the ideal cultivation site for our hemp. Additionally, we’ve implemented the use of solar panels to power our facilities to reduce our impact on the environment.

Processing Laboratory

Our processing laboratory houses state-of-the-art extraction equipment to process the cleanest cannabinoid products available in the state of Hawai’i. We utilize cryogenic ethanol extraction and wiped-film distillation to produce all of our organic CBD and CBG distillate, which we then use to create our line of tinctures, topicals, and so much more! No shortcuts are taken in the process leading to some of the purest and potent distillate produced.

We utilize liquid chromatography to create broad-spectrum CBD distillate or hydrocarbon precipitation for CBD isolate. Our R&D department has created a liquid water-soluble CBD concentrate and we are currently working on many more amazing products to share with you all soon!
