Cultivate a holistic lifestyle with trustworthy products from the Blue Ridge Mountains.
The Essence oF Asheville
Offering Close-to-Nature Essentials for Health and Wellness Needs
Our story begins in the heart of the North Carolina mountain town Asheville. From the scenic misty hills to the vibrant farm-to-table culture, every aspect of the region’s landscape and people encouraged us to create holistic offerings for the Blue Ridge community and beyond.
Asheville is deeply rooted in sustainable ethics, herbalism approaches, and entrepreneurial spirits. We’ve implemented these mindsets to establish a local health and wellness business focused on formulating natural products with integrity.
Asheville Botanicals is pleased to announce that we recently achieved CGMP Status. This was a lengthy and third party audited accreditation that recognizes our facility as a leader in the hemp industry and that we manufacture to the highest standards. Further, these standards are audited and graded on a universal scale by certified third party auditors. This accreditation is recognized among all quality food grade and pharmaceutical manufacturers and places us among a very select group in our industry as there are currently only 4 CGMP processors within the hemp industry in North Carolina. If you care about the products that you ingest, make sure they come from a facility holding CGMP status!
