About Made By Hemp

Our Story

Made By Hemp is a small, Michigan-based team and your trusted source of all things hemp. Founded by Jeff Gallagher in 2013, Made by Hemp is dedicated to providing you with quality products and the education you need to make informed choices.

Jeff started Made by Hemp after a life-changing experience with hemp oil. Since then, he’s made it his mission to help others improve their well-being through CBD hemp oil supplements. The Made by Hemp team shares Jeff’s passion for hemp and helping others with their wellness goals.

Passion for Quality

We carefully select each of our products for their consistency and quality. Each product we receive is third-party lab tested to verify its cannabinoid potency, THC levels, and more before joining our ever-increasing list of effective CBD products.

Our process is simple: if a product doesn’t test with equal or more cannabinoids than advertised, we absolutely will not carry it. Products containing more than the legal amount of THC (.3%) or any CBD oil derived from marijuana are also not carried on our site.

We aim to offer the best and most extensive collection of hemp products. At Made By Hemp, you can be confident you’re choosing from the best products in the industry.

Our Process

How do we choose what products to carry?

Step #1

Discovery & Vetting

Sometimes companies reach out to us about carrying their products, but 99% of our brands were selected by our own research —or by strong customer request.

When vetting products, we must determine:

What makes this product unique?
If it is competitively priced
Where the hemp oil is sourced from and if done properly
If the manufacturer is reputable and
Whether or not the ingredients are natural and honest

Step #3

Taste Test

Admittedly, it’s no secret that hemp oil usually doesn’t taste great. Perhaps it’s cruel for us to make our employees taste all of these products —but we promise they’re happy to do it for you!

Before on-boarding a new product, we use ourselves as guinea pigs. When testing a potential addition to the Made By Hemp store, we note the following for our final concensus:

Potency / Effectiveness

Step #2

Lab Test

Everything goes through a testing phase before we even consider carrying it. No exceptions. Although we have our own testing equipment that we like to fire up on occasion, we understand the importance of non-biased reports.

That’s why all products are 3rd-party lab tested to confirm the cannabinoid content advertised on the packaging.

It’s very simple: if the product doesn’t pass this test, we notify the manufacturer and move on. We don’t publicise products that test poorly —but it’s surprising how many there are.

Step #4

Time Test

Once we add a new product, the final step truly never ends. We listen to you, read your reviews, and keep an eye on industry news.

Your feedback is extremely important to us. Our customers are the leading force behind what’s in our store.

Whenever you try a product, please go to the product page on our site and leave a review! Or feel free to email us your reviews.

Made in Michigan

In addition to offering reliable products from other companies, we also manufacture many of our own products.

After years of hard work, we finally cut the red ribbon on our Michigan production facility in early 2016. In order to meet your hemp needs at a quicker and more efficient pace, we moved to a new facility and built a larger, custom laboratory. Our new, 800 sq ft production lab is located just outside of Grand Rapids and is licensed by the state of Michigan.

That’s not all that’s changed, we are now a robust, customer-centric team of 30+ people and still growing! The Made By Hemp team follows strict quality guidelines to bring you trustworthy, high-quality products.

Properly Sourced Hemp Oil

All products listed here on our website use properly sourced industrial hemp oil.  Some of the brands we offer source their hemp from farms in Europe, using all of the best growing standards (otherwise we won’t carry it), but the vast majority of CBD oil products on our site are sourced domestically. ALL of the products we manufacture are sourced domestically and our hemp is never sourced from China.

We test all products listed on our site regularly for purity, potency, and more.

Giving Back

Helping others is our #1 priority and a concept that makes our jobs so rewarding. Our whole team has come together for various volunteering opportunities to help other companies and charities with like-minded goals.

Recently, we donated to Bowl for Kid’s Sake and took the whole team out for a night of bowling, fun, and of course, appreciation for what this volunteer-supported organization does for kids! Read more about the Big Brothers Big Sisters organization here.


Several times a year, our team members volunteer at Kids Food Basket in Grand Rapids, Michigan for an hour of preparing lunch or take-home meals for children in our area who wouldn’t already have them. Learn more about volunteering here to help your community by giving your most valuable currency—time.

When Christmas time rolls around, our team comes together to fulfill the wish list of 3 or more children through D.A. Blodgett St. Johns.
