Answers to commonly asked questions about hemp and CBD.
+ What is hemp and why doesn’t it make you high?
Delta 9 THC is the only cannabinoid known to work at the brain level to produce psychoactive effects. While marijuana is bred with the purpose of maximizing its THC concentration, Industrial hemp’s chemical profile makes it incapable of inducing intoxicating effects and getting you “high” from ingesting it – because it only has trace amounts of THC.
Our products are made exclusively from industrial hemp, which is specifically bred to produce the lowest concentrations of THC possible – less than 0.3% by dry weight with the maximum amount of naturally occurring CBD and other cannabinoids that help CBD work better in our cells.
There are several plant species of cannabis: Cannabis Sativa, Cannabis Indica, and Cannabis Ruderalis.
Hemp is a variety of the taller Cannabis Sativa plant, and hemp fiber is used for clothing, paper, and even automotive parts. It is a viable alternative to trees for several uses, because a full crop takes just 3-4 months to grow. From 1937 until 2018, growing hemp was federally illegal, but thanks to the Farm Bill, hemp growers can generate this cash crop legally, as long as it contains less than 0.3% THC. You can extract CBD from hemp to create oil and other products, but it won’t get you high.
