Hemp FAQS

What is hemp and CBD?

Hemp is variety of Cannabis sativa L, and is a dioecious plant, meaning it can take the form or male or female plants. Female plants are known for their fragrant flowers which are used more widely than the male plants. These plants have served a wide variety of purposes for more than 10,000 years: for fiber, protein, and oils and smokable portions. Hemp fibers can be used to make items including paper, clothing, furnishing fabric, rope, and building materials.

CBD or Cannabidiol is one of the 104 chemical compounds, known as cannabinoids, found in the cannabis plant. CBD is a non-intoxicating component of the plant and is believed to have many therapeutic effects on the human body and mind.

Is hemp legal?

The 2014 Farm Bill allowed for universities and state departments of agriculture to cultivate hemp, as long as it is cultivated and used for research.

The 2018 Farm Bill, contained  the Hemp Farming Act of 2018  which reclassified hemp (with less than 0.3% THC) from Schedule I. Under the Hemp Farming Act, hemp cultivation is no longer limited to state  agricultural departments and universities. In addition, the act allows farmers rights to water, crop insurance, and federal agricultural grants, as well as legal access to national banking. Hemp may also be transported across state lines.   

Can I get high?

The hemp plant produces a broad range of cannabinoids, including THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), the psycoatric cannabinoid in marijuana. However, hemp does not produce enough THC to create the feeling of getting "high" when consumed. 

The best part of hemp is the medicinally rich cannabidiol (CBD) which can be found in high concentrations in certain strains. Hemp-derived CBD is quickly becoming one of the most popular forms natural  remedies today.

How will I drug test?

Though our hemp flower is under the legal limit, there is still a hint of THC that may come up in a drug screen so we do not suggest you to use it as a substitute or alternative to any illegal substance - no matter the quantity taken.

As with any substance that contains a trace of THC, there is the possibility that it will show positive for THC on a field test. Be sure to review the  lab reports or lab results test (COA - certificate of analysis) is under 0.3% delta-9 (THC).
