Our Story. Our Mission.


Hempire State Organix is a testament to both love and family. It was inspired by CEO/founder, Chris Bruno’s grandmother, Rosemarie “Rose” Donnarumma, who was diagnosed with Stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer, in late 2015.

This type of cancer is virtually incurable and the prognosis at this stage does not usually provide any hope beyond six months. Chris was determined to help his grandmother, so he read and studied every conceivable topic there was on the matter.

As a dedicated Vegan, he was already convinced of the benefits of a non-meat/non-dairy, non-GMO and organic lifestyle. With that being said, the first order of business was to convince his grandmother to change her traditional western lifestyle to adopt a dense vegan diet; supplemented with daily multiple vitamins, herbs and medicinal mushrooms (i.e. such as Reishi and Turkey Tail).

The conclusion was made that this still was not enough. Through long hours of research, he became knowledgeable of the benefits of CBD (Cannabidiol) and its positive influence with many types of cancers and other debilitating illnesses. He began supplementing Rose with CBD oils that were readily available; online and/or the local health food store in town.

Although CBDs had such a strong and positive influence with Rosemarie, the cons included high expenses, unknown or sometimes unnatural ingredients and/or the oils did not contain the expected potency as promised with many brands. Under these given circumstances, Chris decided to make his own oils, with no additives and/or unnecessary harmful chemicals. Combining Rose’s prescription for medical marijuana with industrial hemp, she was able to easily tolerate her chemotherapy treatments; this allowed her to remain active and maintain a healthy appetite.

Rosemarie passed away on May 25, 2018, which was more than two years longer than the typical six-month prognosis for this type of cancer. In those two additional years of her life, not only did she not suffer any pain (right up to her last days and her last breath), she was able to enjoy her three great-grand-children and imprint herself in their memories.

Before her death, Rosemarie made Chris promise to continue producing CBD products to make a positive impact on others, as he had with her. She was the inspiration and overall foundation for the birth of Hempire State Organix. With that responsibility, Chris vowed to produce the most honest and affordable CBD products. As a company based on love and family, it is believed that affordability should not prevent someone from experiencing the benefits of CBD.

The Hempire State Organix Principle

What sets Hempire State Organix apart from the many other CBD companies?

This is a question our CEO first asked himself and with this question the answer shaped the company. “HSO is focused on four main aspects for consumers; price, potency, practicality and of course, health. We want to provide the best quality hemp CBD products at the best price.” At HSO, we keep prices lower than most our competitors and our potency high all while making products in small batches only to insure its consistency. We also want to keep things simple with the old saying “less is more” which is why we pack high CBD dosages into small bottles providing ease when it comes time to take your supplement or even travel with it. Hempire State Organix always uses the highest quality organic ingredients, specifically sourcing non-GMO. All our products are backed by 3rd party testing completed at Pro Verde Labs.
