Local Roots Guide

“On the following pages, you will meet the farmers and ranchers who are growing locally and making their abundance available to the good people of the San Luis Valley and beyond. . .

This guide is dedicated to those who till the earth and tend the animals: to those who grow their own food and to those who grow it for others. Thank you for the bountiful harvest.”

Kim's Kreation Room I began hand-crafting organic skin care in 2011. After hemp was legalized in 2014, I tested CBD isolate in my products (isolate has 0% THC; it's 100% CBD). Everyone gave me positive feedback, so I started producing a line of products that help with pain relief. Many of my customers are medical workers, truck drivers, pilots – those concerned about drug testing using oil-based products. Over the years I've researched the science of cannabis, and have improved my products – many say they've tried others, but mine is the only one that worked. That's what motivates me! Organic balms in 300mg, 500mg and 1,000mg strengths. CBD drops at 1,000mg strength or higher if requested. Grams of pure CBD isolate.
