During the research, I found that Oprah Winfrey discovered the glass and there is a set of different sized bottles and jars in a collection dedicated to her name. This is sold for the home pantry to preserve food freshness, vitamins and nutrients as no other container seems able to do this as well. The cost of the glass is somewhat prohibitive, however; it can be reused for generations and can be considered a precious heirloom to be passed from generation to generation. Studies do show that food stored in the glass containers is almost as fresh and in tact as the day it was preserved.
So, if all goes well, the search of bottles for the hemp oil will be ended and although it will add a great deal to the cost, the bottle is part of the purchase. Education of the consumer will be paramount. I am thrilled to have found this violet (black) glass and have been in touch with the company regarding distributing the product in Canada, though it requires more than I have to offer and was just a very nice thought. They did not say no, but asked questions..something I appreciated very much. Watch for the hemp oil in the black bottle or order it online soon, along with other hemp products from the Fat Ewe Farm.
