Before Hemp Botanical by Jefro’s Kush Cream, Jarrett K. St. Amand (CPL USMC) is the person behind the persona. His story is real. His struggle is common, as with many disabled combat action veterans. His solution is amazing. Having participated in Operation Restore Hope in Mogadishu, Somalia (1992), Jarrett returned home from his tour to face a new battle called PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). While at a restaurant with his good friend, he suffered a seizure attack. Sometime later doctors discovered a tumor under his right eye (Hemangioma Orbital Mass). Jarrett found a hemp botanical cream that relieved the discomfort under his eye and the from his PTSD symptoms. The anti-tumor effects of the hemp botanical cream can help reduce discomfort and nausea and may act as an anti-inflammatory and anti-seizure. In addition, Jarrett learned that hemp botanical cream may help increase cancer cell death and decreases tumor growth. Disappointed by the quality and purity of the topical hemp botanical brands he was using, Jarrett decided to create his own recipe. Jarrett intensified his search to find the highest-grade hemp botanical available in the United States. He made connections throughout the cannabis industry and managed to secure the highest quality USDA Certified Organic farmed Hemp in Colorado. That’s when JEFRO’S KUSH CREAM was born. We are proud to state that we use a USDA Certified Organic farmed Hemp for Jefro’s Kush Cream and we use a combination of essential oils made from the best possible ingredients offering quality, purity, and efficacy.
