For years, Dr Hilda has educated patients and practitioners about the value of Hemp. In 2014 she petitioned the Governor of NM to pass the hemp bill. Unfortunately, it was vetoed by the Governor.

In 2018, tides turned politically, and the New Mexico State University Board of Regents removed the last barrier to hemp production in the state. The program will be administered by the New Mexico Department of Agriculture (ABQ Journal).

Visit The New Mexico Hemp Association ( for up-to-date information about current hemp production news in New Mexico. 


Hemp has over 50,000 uses and is valued and used all over the world. New Mexico is the perfect state to grow this crop, as the weather is perfect all year long. Hemp would boost the economy of NM and bring much needed jobs to New Mexicans.


Dr Hilda has created her own remedies out of the hemp oil, utilizing the medicinal value of CBD. The Cannabinoid CBD, is non- psychoactive and has been proven to have many curative and medicinal properties. Hemp Oil is legal and has been imported from Canada and other countries for years.


Dr Hilda’s mission, along with other Hemp Advocates in NM, is to grow Hemp and provide education so others can benefit from the diverse uses of this plant.  HEMP IS HARMLESS.
