Who We Are
Lify was created by Francesco and Daniele, two friends with different skills and a lot of shared passions, including nature, good food and of course… hemp!
Our farm is like a dream come true. A dream about passionately growing top-quality hemp plants in our homeland, Tuscany, always respecting the environment.
Our Farm and Land
Fascinated by the complexity and the rich history of hemp, we realised straight away that choosing the right place to grow our plants was fundamental to have the quality level we desired.
After a long quest, we found our piece of heaven just a few steps away from our beloved city of Florence, in a small valley on the outskirts of Chianti region, between the municipalities of Montespertoli and Empoli. Lify started here, where a pristine environment and the Mediterranean climate create an ideal ecosystem for the growth and flowering of hemp.
HOW WE GROW
Our plants are 100% natural and are grown without any pesticides, using a drip fertigation system to save water and help plants to absorb nutrients. We grow our plants two ways: inside greenhouses and outdoor.
For outdoor cultivation, we prepared and took care of our soil day by day, to reach a superior quality level in an environment that is less controlled than a greenhouse.
In the outdoors, the soil preparation and day by day care have been essential, to reach a superior quality level due to a less controlled environment compared to the greenhouse.
Harvesting and Drying
Harvesting is carried out with the new moon to help the drying phase, which is crucial.
Drying is fundamental for the quality of the final product and takes place in a specific environment where temperature and humidity are constantly checked. This way, humidity can steadily evaporate, and buds can uniformly dry.
Curing and Processing
After drying, buds undergo a “curing” phase, during which they are stored in specific hermetic jars. Once a day, jars are opened to release any moisture and get fresh air inside. Through this process, buds ripe more easily, improving their aroma and taste.

CBD AND THE LAW
What is CBD?
CBD is one of the main cannabinoids of Cannabis sativa. It has relaxing, anti-inflammatory and soothing properties. CBD can be used for nutritional, pharmaceutical and cosmetic purposes.
Since it doesn’t have psychotropic effects, CBD is legal everywhere and is the object of many scientific studies. Among others, CBD is known to have antispasmodic, anticonvulsant, and neuroprotective properties.
CBD vs THC
The main difference between these two components of Cannabis is that CBD doesn’t cause any psychological alteration, while high THC levels have psychotropic effects. Hence, THC is legal only within certain limits.
Laws on CBD
In Italy, the production and sale of substances containing CBD are regulated by law no. 242 of December 2nd 2016. You can find the law at this link (Italian): https://www.gazzettaufficiale.it/eli/id/2016/12/30/16G00258/sg
According to this law, products can contain a maximum THC level of 0.6% in order to be sold.
