In 2020, 4 guys from Rockford, Illinois decided to start a hemp company.  All of us were pretty good at smoking rope, and a couple of us were really good at growing it.  Since we were growing everything organically and sourcing everything locally, we decided to take a look back at our local history, to a time when everything was grown organically.  That’s when we discovered the Buckbee Seed Co. In honor of our hometown history, we named our hemp company the Buckbee Weed Co. We even came up with a bizarre backstory about how we had been growing hemp for 150 years, but our boring lawyer told us that we needed to explain that the backstory was just fiction.  Even though our products are totally authentic, please do not be fooled: our backstory is only somewhat authentic.

OUR HISTORY

The Buckbee saga began in 1871- over one hundred and twenty long years ago. Dr. Cornelius Darlington Buckbee—world famous lecturer and esteemed scholar—was on the final leg of a lengthy tour of the Capitals of Continental Europe when his planned travels were halted by the Siege of Paris. Thanks to the advancement of the Prussian army, the good doctor had the occasion to take up residence on the Left Bank, where he frequently performed demonstrations evincing the scientific advancements in the field of phrenology.

One evening, while deep in thought and walking hurriedly along the Quai d’Anjou, Dr. Buckbee was accosted by a ragged street urchin, who incredulously claimed that that the doctor had walked into him. The wizened and bedraggled beggar began, “Well, since you’ve nearly knocked me off my feet, the least you could do is listen to my tale, for though I may appear to be humble, I am in fact a man who’s soul possesses a treasure greater than any stone unearthed by wise King Solomon, for I am the sole possessor of the long-forgotten recipe to the elixir of life…”

Having grown bored by the sales pitch, Dr. Buckbee stepped over the insolent beggar and continued on his way to Le Club des Hachichens, where he planned to expound upon his most recent scientific discoveries. Upon arrival, he imbibed a preparation infused with copious amounts of cannabis—a popular elixir amongst the intellectual Parisiennes who were his hosts for the evening’s activities. As the infusion began to work upon his thoughts, he reflected upon his treatment of the vagabond:

“Could this rapscallion have truly discovered that selfsame secret that has for so long escaped even my own most fervent designs? Balderdash! This wretch was no man of science, and certainly no man of standing- yet I cannot help but wonder- when I physically cast my gaze “down upon” that man sprawled out at my feet, did I not also look “down upon” his despised condition with nothing but disdain. Buckbee, you old fool! Have you allowed your arrogance to cloud your mind? You cannot call yourself a scholar if you have stopped learning!”

He had closed his mind to the possibility of greatness simply because of his own pride. Surely, this was not how one man should treat another. He vowed never to let his pride keep him from searching for the truth in even the most humble of places—and with that energy, Doctor Cornelius Buckbee departed the Club without his hat or frock and stepped out into the world to embark upon a search that would seemingly last for several years. When he awoke at his hotel the next morning, he noticed a substantial alleviation of his nasty lumbago, and a general balancing of his melancholic humors. Opening his eyes with a smile, he found that his hat and coat had been returned to him, and in his pocket he found a recipe for extracting the ethereal oils of the hemp plant.

So, having experienced the medicinal delights of the hemp plant firsthand, Dr. Buckbee embarked upon a mission to share his “curious concoction with all the peoples of the wide world.” With that mission in mind, he founded the Buckbee Weed Company in Rockford, Illinois.Doctor Cornelius Darlington Buckbee was a fearless pioneer with a dream. To this day, his monogram CBD is emblazoned upon every bottle that contains his miraculous remedy!

WHO WE ARE

C.D. Buckbee
Dr. Cornelius Darlington Buckbee first achieved fame as a Phoenician philologist, phrenologist, and mesmerist. In 1871, he founded the Buckbee Weed Co. in Rockford, Illinois to manufacture and sell a variety of pharmaceutical concoctions and patent medicines, all derived from the hemp plant. Through the contrivance of mail-order catalogs, Dr. Buckbee was able to sell his wares across the country.

Mary Buckbee
Mary Brown was the second daughter of Parson Emmit Brown, who is still remembered to this day in the Christmas song, Winter Wonderland. On a snowy day in 1885, Mary was married to Dr. C. D. Buckbee. Mrs. Buckbee helped grow the Buckbee Weed Co. from a small regional outfit into a nationally-recognized brand. She has been credited for coining the Buckbee slogan, “Full of Life.”

C. B. Dill
Renowned osteopath, Dr. Chester Barnabas Dill delighted the 19th century medical community with his well-polished approach to treating female hysteria. He was perhaps best known for his patented steam-powered oscillating therapeutic paroxysm inducer. Despite his tireless fight against hysteria, Dr. Dill succumbed to thePanic of 1893 andnearly lost his entire fortune. On the brink of ruin, he called upon his old colleague and dear friend, Dr. Buckbee, who magnanimously agreed to forgive certain gambling debts in exchange for his famous recipes.

T. H. Cumberland, VIII
The right honorable Thaddeus Horatio Cumberland, VIII,eighth Viscount of Hempstead, gained fame and respect amongst the peerage for his unparalleled proficiency in the field of botany. His glass-walled “Hemparium” contained a vast collection of the finest and most unique botanical specimens from around the world. Although there was only one recorded meeting between his Lordship and Dr. Buckbee, the two maintained a trans-Atlantic correspondence that lasted for several decades. Dr. Buckbee named his most potent extraction in honor of their personal friendship and in tribute to the advances that Lord Cumberland made in the field of hempology.

Joshua Gillan
While researching the history of the Buckbee Weed Co., local historian and dog lover, Joshua Gillan, came across a picture of Dr. Buckbee with a squirrel perched upon his shoulder. Upon seeing the picture, which bore a striking resemblance to himself, Mr. Gillan immediately fell into a trance, or altered state, perhaps not dissimilar to what Saint Paul experienced upon the road to Damascus. He had a vision, a waking dream, in which he saw Dr. Buckbee hold the lifeless form of his departed squirrel in his hands, and with tears in his eyes, he placed the lifeless squirrel in a small wooden box which he deposited in the earth near a small oak sapling. Through his historical endeavors, Mr. Gillan was able to determine the exact location of this burial. Digging next to the base of a large oak tree, Mr. Gillan uncovered a box with the remains of the squirrel, and written upon the lid of the box, was the recipe for Dr. C. D. Buckbee’s Pet tincture.

Dr. Buckbee has concocted a derivative for enjoyment through inhalation which he has imbued with the terpenes revealed to him by the OG Kush.
